As long as Diplo plays the tunes and Switch stays at home I'm down... his set was pathetic this year. I don't think we need to hear the second drop of cockney thug brosef.

Yeah I think we can pass on this one since neither have delivered good sets in the past 2 years. Just wasting space that can be occupied by Vitalic or Skream.

I love the Major Lazer album, but can't imagine how they would pull it off live. Just too many collabs. I think it would be similar to the MSTRKRFT fiasco we experienced this year.

I didn't think that was a fiasco at all, but I was pretty F'd up at the time...

I saw Major Lazer on this current tour and to say the least, I was not impressed.

Went to a show at the Silent Movie Theater in Hollywood co-curated by Eric Wareheim (of Tim and Eric). He directed a bunch of other music videos like MGMT's the Youth and more notably Flying Lotus's Parisian Goldfish. He just finished his most recent video for Major Lazer's Pon De Floor and premiered the video at the show at the Silent Movie Theater. It's pretty awesome.

It's very similar in concept to the Flying Lotus video (black people having lots of simulated sex and dancing like crazy) but it's not nearly as graphic.

If you haven't seen his Flying Lotus video, treat yourself right now:

In reference to MSTRKRFT:

Fiasco is probably too strong of a descriptor. I guess "letdown" would be more accurate. Paul T talked it up like there was going to be a Daft Punk level stage show. I also expected more guest artists, besides John Legend. Musically I thought their set was meh, especially after the Chems amazing performance. I liked the 07 show they put on, much more fun and much less pretentious.

WRT MSTRKRFT, there was some rumor floating around the boards after Coachella that there was supposed to be a 3D or Holographic component to MSTRKRFT's stage set up, but they pissed off the designer and he quit w/o supplying them the necessary stage set up. So they threw John Legend in there as a stop gap solution.

i forget who it was, but someone was telling me the 'surprise' was cut at the last minute bc MSTRKRFT were being dicks. I mean John Legend was hardly anything special in my book

that's because its Classixx. Classixx is actually pretty good. I wouldnt mind seeing Classixx in the early day

Other than Pon De Floor, major lazor lacks it IMO. (id rather see NASA)

I dont think they should be at 2010

I have to say, they weren't "boring" like people are saying about the chems... well, actually, they were. It was repetitive. Their synths were absolutely awesome. But they didn't change them, that was the problem. I was amped when they opened, but I quickly lost interest. :2c

^^i wouldn't go so far as to say fuck ANYTHING that diplo has to do with, but i am really sick of the dancehall electro shit. can we have serious production?

anyone remember how fucking awesome modeselektor was? why can't we have artists of that calibur? god damnit, i just want something interesting and INNOVATIVE.

people here are so easily appeased by music that seems so pre-packaged. enough fist-pumping.

That's why Moderat needs to be at Coachella '10 .... Such an amazing album.

They were really underwhelming live. I have seen both Modeselektor and Apparat live and they were much better seperately.

Speaking of dj/producer collabs, I'd be cool if we could get a DuckSauce show or Magnetik Men even Zombie Nation.

surprised to see modeselektor on the bill. not sure what you're trying to prove, though.. just because they are playing the same gig doesn't mean shit.

moar techno plz.

if they're not at coachella i'll be very surprised.

and if they could work apparat into the dome (late night) i would be super happy

Yeah they are almost a lock.

I'd buy a camping ticket if Apparat was in the Dome afterhours. That would be awesome. It would be amazing to have Apparat and Ellen Alien perform Orchestra of Bubbles.

People who actually need to play the sahara in 2010.. i mean if we're getting to it already:

Vitalic
Fake Blood
Classixx
Jokers of the Scene
Ellen Allien


..and like 50 others who should play instead of weak repeats and shitty djs

08-22-2009, 01:56 PM
Why do people keep wanting ill shit in the lame ass, dusty dome? Moderat belongs in the Sahara, you can't have Modeselektor in the Sahara in the dark one year and then put them in the crappy dome another, regardless of timeslot.

Major Lazer is overrated, and Switch is one of the worst DJ's I've ever seen in the Sahara. The only person with less skills than him this year was Shepard Fairey, AKA DJ Pubes.

We were talking only "talking" about an Apparat performance in the Dome. Not Modeselektor or Moderat. Which won't happen because if Apparat were to be there it would be to perform with Modeselektor as Moderat.
