NYE Choices...

It's that time of year again and Fix Your Face Radio will be heading to Denver in search of the filthiest bass parties to ring in the new year!! With so many choices this year to choose from during the week between X-Mas and NYE, I'd like YOUR input on who you'd like to see covered by FYFR! First off, not sure if I can make it up until after Christmas, but if if so, I def wanna hit up the Fox Theater for James Egbert and Ectocooler! Never seen Egbert before but I know Ectocooler puts on a great live show. This JE track here is a tad on the older side, but still a BANGER!, and I love this mashup by
Ecto Cooler!!!!

The rest of the NYE party weekend pretty much starts on Friday the 28th this year. Here's the options!!

Friday 12.28.12

Sub.mission Brings back the 12th Planet for his residency at Beta Nightclub in Denver!!! Plus, this time around he's got UZ from Diplo's Label, Mad Decent!! This would be EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The smooth intelligent hip hop duo is back in Colorado for 2 nights in the  Denver area-first @ the Marquis, then The Fox in Boulder, followed by 12.30.12 in Brekenridge @ 320 SOUTH. Formed in Los Angeles, CA, Thes One and the Double K have been together as People Under the Stairs since '97. Here's one of my favorite tracks-San Francisco Knights :)

Saturday 12.29.12

Zomboy and Sub.mission's own Coult.45 are going to rip The Bluebird apart!!! Seen both of them before and let me tell you-don't sleep on this show!! Sub.mission is still

keepin the Mile High City hot with the fire artists from all over the globe, but their residents are no joke!!
Here's some tracks for those of you who don't know!!
Sound Tribe Sector 9 is doing a 3 night run at The Fillmore, should be an amazing mini tour! I have a few of my best friends going for NYE, but I think I might like to see them earlier in the weekend to save room for the rest of the awesome acts playing out! Either way, I know they put on a dank live show, I saw them at Red Rocks with Pretty Lights a few years back. Here's "Hidden Hand, Hidden Fist"
Sunday 12.30.12
I sadly missed Tipper, and Random Rab's set at Sonic Bloom this year :) I'd love the chance to finally see them live, and ill-esha would be a bonus! Plus, who doesn't LOVE a show at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, I heard this one's dual venue too with The Otherside!!!! dope.

Monday 12.31.12
Okay so as a Visual Artist, I was a little sad to find out that Amon Tobin is doing ISAM at City Hall for NYE...But his music is still fucking awesome and I would love the chance to see it live! And Digital Connection and Future Simple are badass! Don't know much about Seied or Kastle, but I like what I hear!  And just because its cooler than the other side of the pillow, I'll show you a clip of the ISAM too :)

Sub.Mission Global Dub Arena featuring | ZEDS DEAD |   | MiMOSA | Paul Basic | Flosstradamus | Fury |

I went to this party last year...My crew was in line waiting for almost two hours. We missed Feed Me, Jontron, and the majority of Joman's set...25 minutes in line for beers once inside the venue. I can say that we did not have the best time. Triad Dragons addressed these issues on the Facebook event page and honestly, I feel for them. First time in a new venue, over 10.000 people, yeah, they were bound to have some problems. But they now have some solutions in place for this year and it seems that they've got their shit together. I personally would not have a problem giving Decadence another shot. A SICK lineup never hurts too :) Peep the official trailer for 2013 and a few tracks from my favorites right here-

Denver's NYE has a new kid on the block- Crowne Plaza NYE Block Party stands to be just as big as Decadence this year. This is from the website:

  • Count down to the New Year featuring Colorado's largest balloon drop ever
  • Elevated VIP decks and cabanas with a sparkler lit toast of bubbly at midnight
  • Several themed rooms featuring cover bands, DJ's, and the Bass Cave
  • Novelty party hats, streamers, and noisemakers scattered throughout the party
  • White out confetti cannon explosion at the stroke of midnight
  • Balloon wrapped go-go dancers on towering platforms
  • Theatrical dance teams, stilt walkers, and entertainers of all kinds
  • Classy semi-formal to formal dress code
  • Coat check provided in the hotel atrium
  • Free shuttle transportation to and from nearby block party hotels

Sounds cool enough. HOWEVER, there's one fact about this party that has me chomping at the bit to be there: TIMELINE!! That's right, our friend TimeLine is droppin the filth at the stroke of midnight all over downtown Denver. And I would love to be there!! Here's his brand new video "Out of Reach"-Animation by Nick Person. His new album can be downloaded in its entirety at
