Place that energy in the cozy confines of Charley's, and you have the makings of an unforgettable night. Adding to the mix are visuals by Event Horizon presenting Charley's in a light rarely seen and commensurate with the level of performance.
Not familiar with Z★Trip? A quick glance at his resume shows that this pioneer has done it all in the electronic music world including performing to a 450,000-person audience as the opener for the Rolling Stones, scoring multiple Top 10 singles through his major label release, ‘Shifting Gears,’ and designing Z-Trip-branded DJ gear for iconic manufacturers, Rane and Serato. After first bursting into the spotlight in 2001, Z-Trip also shows no signs of fading away. His set with LL Cool J at Austin City Limits festival last month was hailed as a highlight of the star-packed weekend, and last year, his tour with LL Cool J drew crowds of over 50,000 (see above video).
The best part? Z★Trip brings something to the table for everyone with his famed mash up sets covering every base. Even after all his success, Z★Trip approaches ever show with humility and passion - laser-focused on getting EVERYONE to embrace the moment mixing classics known to all with endless surprises like only Z-Trip can.

Z★Trip - LIVE Mixin' Can't Be Beat
"I recently played at Coachella and eighty percent of DJs were just playing songs, not playing with the songs. Or they were just playing pre-mixes of songs, which is totally counter to the culture I grew up with and respect and admire. Not to knock them, they were cool, the crowd was cool, everyone was cool with it, but it’s just not what gets me inspired.
I equate it to you like this. You wouldn’t see The Black Keys playing a live concert and midway through their set they start crowd-surfing but their music is still playing. Then when they come back on-stage the next song is on. It doesn’t happen that way. You wouldn’t see that and, if you did, they would lose all their fans.
I am inspired by innovators like Grandmaster Flash and Jazzy Jeff. They would perform and they were clearly doing the work. You could see and hear it in real-time and recognize there was the ability to fuck up. When you are on a highwire fifty storeys up and there’s no net, it changes the stakes: if you fall, you die.
For me, the bigger the risk, the bigger the game."
