9 Things We Learned at Wet Electric 2014
6. DJ Hemmesphere Can Cut A Rug
Club DJs have a yen for being quite animated behind the mixers, to say the least. Moving and jumping as much as their beats are bumping, they attempt to get things going in whatever nightspot they're working with some moves of their own. But while we've seen many a mixmaster busting a groove in the booth while dropping tracks or crowdsurfing, a DJ hitting the dance floor in the middle of their set is something we've never witnessed. Well, until this past weekend, that is.
Old Town Scottsdale regular Hemmesphere took time during her local stage gig on Saturday at Big Surf to shake a tailfeather with attendees and fans. "You all look like you're having so much fun out there, I think I'll join you," the she-jay stated before putting on a longer cut, hopping down from the booth, and proceeding to boogie down.

5. Manufactured Superstars Party with the People
Those who sprung for a VIP-level tickets to Wet Electric not only got all the high-roller trappings (bottle service seating, cabana access, et al.), but also got to party with the men of Manufactured Superstars. We spied both Shawn Sabo and Bradley Roulier (who helped found Beatport and co-owns Denver's top EDM spot Club Beta) drinking and chatting up those occupying the VIP jetty out in the middle of the Big Surf wave pool and also backstage after their set on Saturday. And they kept their astronaut gear on while doing so. Nice to know they didn't simply beat feet back to their bus or suite within seconds of finishing things up, unlike a few other superstars did.
