I was there it was pretty awesome. I feel bad that the only song I could name was Pon De Floor but it was a great time and everyone was freaking out. Here are some videos I uploaded:

anyone know what that is or if that's from another artist? he had that bass and sax for about 10 minutes and it was absolutely ridiculous.

Bass and sax is big gigantic? I have no idea but that sounds about right.

pon de floor? He could drop anvils on puppies and that would be better than pon de floor.

wahhh wahh wahhhh pon de floor is not a tom yorke type of song.

that song is great, it always makes the crowd wild and i witnessed tom yorke get down to it. it was not the most interesting part of the set but it was definitely one of the most fun parts.

ok, i recognized americas most blooded and i heard what i thought was some kraftwerk but i'm not super familiar with older house music and less well known electronic music. he was not dropping popular/well known music the whole set, i think he was using his own beats a lot.

takes a lot of balls to misspell the guy's name twice when the proper spelling appears every where in this thread.

fortunately, my courageousness did not go unnoticed. i lend you a hand for recognizing the valor of my arduous trials.

thank you good sir,
may you continue to shed light upon the more under-appreciated things in this life.

may i be privileged of the location of your residence? i must deliver you a cookie as a suited trophy.

Didn't every DJ/Artist at HARD Haunted Mansion '09 play some version of "Pon de Floor"? Thom is pretty behind on the current hits. Then again, that is a great song if you want to get the crowd a-roarin'.

He has worked with Diplo before, so how is that out of the ordinary...

shit was fucking incredible. major lazer isn't my thing but it make the crowd go apeshit. i
"pocket calc" by kraftwerk, "america's most blunted" by madvillain, "zombie" by fela kuti, "red hot car" by Squarepusher and i swear i heard busta rhymes in there somewhere. honest.

I'm really glad I'm not a person who couldn't ID "Zombie" out and about. Which isn't intended to be a smug remark. I just fucking love that song. As anyone who isn't completely devoid of rhythm and feeling should.
