Zoop Productions was started by a group of SDSMT students in December
1997. We had all been exposed to electronic music in one way or another,
and the lack of an electronic "scene" in Rapid City forced us to travel to
Minneapolis or Denver quite often to hear the music we loved. It wasn't
long before we decided to try to throw our own event here. At first there
was a small house party called "Phat Zoop"; it can be said that this is
where it all began for us. We borrowed some speakers from our college
radio station, and used friends turntables for the DJ booth... For most
of the party, 100+ sweaty party goers crammed the basement, loving the
music, not caring about the heat, and dancing like mad. It was a
beautiful sight, and the feeling we got from it inspired us to do it
again. We decided to produce a "real" event, getting club lights, a
bigger sound system, and a bigger location. We called it "Legoland".
After this second party went off well we decided there was no reason to
stop there and we began searching the Denver, Omaha, and Minneapolis areas
for DJs who would be willing to come out and play at our 'virgin' scene.
Over the years we have carried on, and to this day we continue to bring
quality not-for-profit events to Rapid City... And be it techno, trance,
house, jungle, downtempo, upbeat, or progressive cyberdelic booty
trancecore, we still love the music.
