The people who run this festival really do listen to the fans. I really have no idea if someone like HC would have been booked if it had not been for his small but extremely vocal fan base of this board. I am so happy right now. :)

I have a feeling he's going to close the Pure Filth stage or at the very least play later at night. I'm worried about a few Sahara conflicts too.

I would have liked to seen Netsky too but High Contrast is a legend. Netsky's career is less than two years old. High Contrast playing an American festival is a big deal in my opinion.

a lot of people didn't like Aphex Twin - they wanted his crazy breakcore shit

I was happy because one of the first tracks he played was Let The Music Use You or something, that old acid house track. Fucking loved it. I was the only one dancing lol

Seriously, Luna wtf are you talking about, lol. Yea Pendulum exists but as far as I know no one has considered them a d&b act in years. Although I do give them props for getting Netsky and Lenzman to remix the last couple of singles they have put out. The references you bring up about Pendulum, who I haven't heard played in years, Andy C playing tracks from 1998 etc all just show you are so far out of the D&B loop you don't even know what you're talking about any more. You're over D&B, that's fine. I've been over The Smiths for 15 years but I don't go around bashing Morrissey fans who are excited to see him perform live.

A HC/ Trenmoller conflict would be the worst thing that could happen that whole weekend. There arent many Sahara acts I care too see this year, a damn shame if I end up having to miss the one that sticks out the most too me

I'm really hoping for a Chromeo, Bloody Beetroots or Axwell conflict with High Contrast. The more I think about it the more I see one of those three closing the Sahara, or at the very least playing the same slot High Contrast does.

unknown
01-20-2011, 10:28 AM
I think you're right, Donald. These SHM guys are so fucking huge (I don't get it but whatever), I can see Axwell closing or yes, I guess bloody beetroots. Pretty anticlimactic if Chromeo closes, imo.

Not that I CARE since I'll be at High Contrast but I really hope it's a conflict like that and not against someone I do want to see (leftfield/sven/trent)

guedita
01-20-2011, 10:30 AM
Swedish House Mafia just posted that Axwell (and Angello) are the "headliners" on their respective days. Would be the perfect act to close the Sahara while High Contrast rocks us at the Pure Filth stage.

Donaldj
01-20-2011, 10:42 AM
Yea, I think that would rock. The only other name I could even see closing the Pure Filth stage would maybe be Kode 9 but the rest of the lineup doesn't have a lot of big names on it. Now They could pull a fast one and have Caspa close that stage and have High Contrast before possibly. I don't, it makes sense to end the night with D&B to me.

Mr. Dylanja
01-20-2011, 10:47 AM
Donald, are you going to be railing it? I don't picture you as much of a railer.

Are you saying High Contrast would start his set at 11:30, or you would show up to his set at 11:30? The curfew on Sunday is 12:00, only Friday and Saturday go until 1:00 now, and there is no way in fuckin hell High Contrast is going to only play a 30 minute set. The perfect ending to the weekend would be Green Velvet -> Trentemoller -> Leftfield -> High Contrast. The Presets would be cool to fit in, but if I can somehow get my weekend to end like that and all full sets it will be fuckin INCREDIBLE!

High Contrast creating tracks live, putting new twists on tracks live, having vocalists, etc is hard to comprehend? So many electronic artists perform "live", I don't see how this would be difficult with dnb. He even explains in the interview how "live" in electronic music means so many different things, he doesn't really know HOW he is going to do it - but if that means a laptop, sampler, and whatever other shit he uses up there and him getting the fuck down on that equipment then that would be fucking rad.

Its just hard to comprehend because at this point a live liquid set is pretty much the only live electronic act I havent seen. Im confident its gonna be cool, thats not an issue.

Hah ok now we're just daydreaming but what the heck... he could get down on the piano, why not? Create the piano sample/loop live and go back to ableton or whatever else and carry on.

Yea but in that article he says "The album should be out in September. I’m going to have some kind of live show, although that’s always an ambiguous term in electronic music. I’m still figuring out what that’s going to be, but it’s gonna be something more than just a DJ set up. "

Maybe parts of the song are pre recorded and he only plays the bassline or the top tones or something..

Maybe parts of the song are pre recorded and he only plays the bassline or the top tones or something..

Hate to burst your bubble but nearly all EDM is performed live that way. I have yet to see an act, other than someone like Imogen Heap, perform EDM 100% live with no pre-recorded content.

So I was looking at t-shirt printing costs around LA. I can do a single ink design for less than $7.50 a shirt when just throwing a random quantity like a run of 50 out there. There are probably cheaper places too. Who would want one, and who would want to chip in design ideas? I want to keep it simple, something like High Contrast, Pure Filth Stage 2011, maybe a cool logo or something.

Also, I had a dream just before I woke up that we were moments away from his set starting except I don't think it was at Coachella. I was bugging you for a camera and trying to convince you that we needed to be closer.

what would the design be?

Lilia and I are going to work on it. I want to keep it somewhat simple. One or at most two different ink colors probably on a non black/white shirt. I'll prolly steal one of the fonts used on one of his releases, throw a Hospital records logo on it and say something about Pure Filth stage/Coachella and the date.

I just love that blend of colors cause I love looking at the black/white contrast in artwork when tripping and seeing that rainbow. I have some things in mind but not if it's gonna cost a lot more. Also, I'm really digging the idea of customizing these for girls - cutting and tying them in different ways. How many females will need one? Me, Serena?, Miranda? Any others?

bear in mind the bottom 2 would be pretty pricey. the right one more than the left because it would probably require some kind of underbase in addition to the inks.

From my experience american apparel makes great light-weight t-shirts. Anything with "5.1 Oz" or "heavyweight" is going to be a thick t-shirt. The lighter weight ones usually say something like "fine" on them.

The website also has a phone number so you could probably give em a call and ask.

I asked another designer friend of mine to throw out an idea. I think we should have a deadline date and vote on the submissions. I'd like to order and have the shirts in hand a full month before Coachella. If people want to have them sent to them before Coachella a month would give plenty of time for that to happen. Obviously if you're in the LA area we can meet up.

Vic: I really like all 6 of your idea's truth be told. It's way better than what I was thinking but I'm also not a graphic designer by any means. I actually really like the black/yellow idea but I think the green/white will be more universally liked/worn. I like the fuzzy offset image but I'd like to keep these shirts to under $10. I'm not sure how much more expensive that effect would make the shirts. I'd prolly have to call and get a quote.

Right now I can easily get rid of 20 and I know there are a lot more people who haven't commented yet on my first inquiry. I was looking at printing about 50 which average to less than $7.5 per shirt on the Hanes kind or less than $9 on the American Apparel shirts that were recommended above. I just wanted to keep the cost at under $10 and sell them at $10 in case I got stuck with a few.

Yes, Donald - fuzzy image on a different color but honestly I don't care. I'm sure whatever gets picked for the design will look great as long as I get mine in a men's medium so I can alter the shit out of it.

The deadline is the 14th of feb for this. Next week I will post the list that I have to make sure I have everyone who wants one with the correct size.

AA tshirts run a bit smaller than the average tshirt.

They shrink too.

Why not use a site like http://www.redbubble.com/ to create and print the shirts for you? Then you can just post the link to the product, and people can buy them. Handbanana (I believe) did it last year for his Tiesto Touched my Butthole shirts. They are printed on AA, and mine is still in perfect condition.

Would probably be easier than the way you're doing it now.

I have a few AA concert shirts and they are all fine. None of them shrank. Maybe try hang drying them the first few times you wash them? I've done that for years and never had issues.

That's a great idea actually. This started out as just a project for my personal friends in LA but it's getting quite a bit bigger now.

All mine shank on me, my dryer is probably the culprit.

Of course he's going to conflict with Kanye. You will regret your decision.

Idk, missing someone you really love is a hard decision. I'm sure you can catch partial sets if Kanye is an absolute must.

im kinda concerned about that conflict as well. Doesnt seem that I like Kanye as much as you, but most of the acts I look forward too at Coach are electronic, so when a non EDM artists is playing that I am curious about, I like to give em priorities.

If it happens ill just peep a little of both sets
