Wow, talk about a disappointment. Probably some of the most talented deejays on Earth and I hear them play "Smells like Teen Spirit" remixes other Electro crowd pleasing shit. It sounded like a 2003 Felix The Housecat set. I've seen both of them, and I really enjoy turntablism and was hoping this would be the one act this year. I would expect a set like this at Monster Massive, but not Coachella. I couldn't stay for more than 10 minutes of their set.

BRING BACK MIKE RELM.

it's too bad you didn't stay. they were just getting the hipsters warmed for some serious shit. they battled back and forth, they two-man juggled, they scratch solo'd, and they featured two of their label's MCs for whom they did live beat-juggling of their tracks. one of my favourite sets of the weekend.

It's a shame you didn't stay longer. It was no Invisibl Skratch Piklz show, but they tore it up a little about half way through. I think they were mostly playing to the dance masses, not catering to the turntable junkies. In my mind they have made up for the no show in 2009. Sorry you left and missed it.

In that case, I'm sorry I missed it too.

I'm not big into turntablism but I was also really hoping to see an awesome set - I just couldn't focus on what they were doing because I dont think it was possible to choose a more fucking cliche set list. This is coachella not a 7th grade dance for fucks sake. It's too bad they didn't showcase their skills more than they did my friend and I were looking forward to it.

When I first walked in I thought WTF as well but I stuck it out and they delivered.

After I heard smells like Teen Spirit, I lost my trust.

They brought out 2 hip hop MC's, they were doing tandem scratching, and they were just mixing, cutting, and scratching at the end of their set.

Sounds like a DMC Champion and sounds like Craze to me =)
