What You Missed at Decadence Arizona 2018

| January 04, 2019

This year, Relentless Beats put on the most memorable experience this New Years Eve holiday! Arizona was one hell of an adventure this new years celebration from their ecstatic rides, festival installations, but most of all an once in a life time line up. Although the Pheonix weather was close to freezing, the performers did not fail to turn up what heat this NYE! Didn't make it to Decadence Arizona this year? Well- we'll catch you up here on iEDM! Here are top 10 festival sets of Decadence AZ.



10. Moon Boots

We love Moon Boots to THE MOON AND BACK since we witness his performance at Decadence Arizona! Moon Boots brought the tech house vibes with the feels at the Saphire Ballroom stage at 8pm to warm up tech house lovers to kick off an exciting weekend! With tracks dropped for disco lovers like Artwork, Paul Simon, and Kiwi; Moon Boots did not disappoint to create one of the best vibes for Arizona. 



9. GG Magree 

GG Magree sure made her fans "feel sexy" at the main stage this year! From dropping new bangers like "Briddim Bomb" by Kompany & TYNAN to classic dance hits like "Tremor"by Martin Garrix, GG Magree is no one to take lightly - well at least when it comes to her insane sets! Phoenix fans couldn't get enough of her performance. iEDM caught an exclusive interview with GG Magree that you can catch here  on iEDM on Blast on Jan 7th 2019 so keep a look out!



8. Drezo

Dark house dad brought out a spooky performance to Phoenix this year and we loved it! Drezo, Phoenix native, tore down the house at the Saphire Ballroom stage first day of Decadence. Drezo had insane visuals that were said to "scare the shit out of crowd." Drezo's track selection leaves us wanting more from him in 2019! 



7. Valentino Khan

We were PUMPed to watch Valentino Khans set in Arizona. Valentino Khan dropped crazy fun tracks such his ID with Kayzo, his own tracks like "Lick it" and "Pump," and so much more!  Valentino doesn't disappoint for heavy hitting bass fans, yet still manages to please the more club fans as well. The energy by Valentino Khan set at Decadence AZ turned the Saphire stage on PHIRE. Valentino kept fans on their feet up until 4am! Thats wild!



6. 4B

4B brought Jersey to Phoenix this past weekend with his fun club, yet head banging set at Decadence AZ! 4B was un- 4 -getable at this New Years eve celebration. This young legend played several trap IDs, added his tastes of a  variety of jersey club, heavy hitting dubstep, and hiphop. Oh, and "Whistle" never fails to make his fans go absolutely nuts!

5. Solardo

Solardo threw down down of the most epic sets Arizona has ever seen! Solardo created a whole new vibe at the Saphire Ballroom stage that gave the crowd an whole new experience. This duo played a couple unreleased tracks as well as songs by Camelphat, Pirate Copy, and Eli Brown. If you're a house head, make sure to see this duo at your next event - You'll definitely want to put it on your bucket list!

4. Rezz

Space Mom packed out the main stage following up Skrillex come back performance! Rezz played lots of IDs in her set and had if so  the line ups best visuals! Her demonic images along with her crazy weird music made this performance probably the most unique one of this year. Rezz played her most popular tracks like "Edge" "Relax" and "Hex," a collab with 1788-L. She also played out unreleased songs from her allies 13, Blanke, and probably so much more. Rezz hypnotic set warmed all us Rezzbians for day two of the festival!



3. Porter Robinson

Decadence AZ line up stated "Porter Robinson (DJ Set)" but what this set actually  seemed like we got more than we bargain for; a Porter Robinson show production ! Porter dropped most if not all his own music during his set including his original tracks, remixes, and edits. Porter kept the balance of love and war in his story - telling set from hard hitting psy beats to melodic IDM. Porter dropped our favorite tracks such as "Fellow Feeling" "Fresh Static Snow" (Edit) and Rezz's remix of his track "Divinity." This was one hell of a DJ set ! Actually no, one awesome Porter Robinson show!



2. Shaq b2b NGHTMRE 

 B2Baller? One of the century's most unexpected sets ever performed in this history of dance music! NGHTMRE and DJ Diesel went back to back in an authentic and once in a life time performance entering 2019! NGHTMRE dropped his unreleased track with ASAP Ferg and his most recent single with Big Gigantic "Like That." DJ Diesel dropped  aggressive hard hitting tracks from artists like Kompany, Algo, Barley Alive and more. There was no other way to enter the new year in ANY EDM event than DJ Diesel B2B NGHTMRE at Decadence Arizona! Entering the new year with this tag team was perfect in every way possible.



1. Skrillex

Out of all the performances witness in 2018, this was definitely the most anticipated one for months. Skrillex, finally returned to dance music fans here and did not disappoint at all. The god father of dirty dubstep dropped most if not all tracks his fans were waiting to hear live once more. From his original bangers like "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" to his Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer "Face My Fears"with Hikaru Utada and his Travis Scott "Sicko Mode" remix. Skrillex was hands down worth every second to witnesses at Decadence AZ. We dubstep fans missed you and can't wait to see what you'll bring us in 2019!
