It was great! I've wanted to see Skream and Benga for a long time.

I'm not a fan of acts who keep cutting the music to hear the crowd though... They did that a lil too much. Otherwise it was one of my top 5 of the weekend for sure :)

Even with no base until the last five minutes? It ruined it for me.

Maybe I set my expectations to high for them but I thought it was weak and left early for Beardyman due to it. Low volume

magnetic man was the biggest dissapointment to ever happen to me at coachella.

They were the one name that had to be on the poster for me.


Epic failure....my god what a fucking waste with no bass.


major flop that was on magnetic mans end not the sahara sound.

I thought skrrillex was going to fuck everything up not magnetic man.

If that bass actually came out could have been the set of the weekend for me. But fuck I was miserable the whole time.


I dont understand how these legends of bass music have a rig that would block the fucking bass aaarrgg.

I'm so glad I chose to see all of Beardyman then wander in for the end of their set. I was wondering why it was so fucking quiet. Beardyman slayed.

This. I was already sitting and stood up instead. It was fucking insufferable waiting for this set to be over.

Why did they get an hour fifteen? GV should've just knocked their scheduled time down to an hour, given Sasha 15 minutes to get set up, and then I could've stayed for ~half an hour of Sasha instead of the 10 minutes I got before leaving to see Robyn. I didn't think I'd see a worse act all weekend until I ventured into the Gobi tent during Lightning Bolt, but for the fact that these motherfuckers took time away from a great artist who warranted more, they're the ones I hold the most animosity towards.

I thoroughly enjoyed this set and did not really notice the lack of bass. I guess I was just really excited to see them and was close enough that it still sounded decent.

because they fail at life


wtf


they are bass musicians yet they can't get there equipment to put the bass out. I mean WTF



anyone that doesn't have a good system doesn't know what they are missing with magnetic man. that set sounded like it was coming from a fucking speaker at a baseball field. FUCK!!!!!!


like i already said...it wasn't on the sahara tents sound....it was on their end

epic fail

i can't believe it still




that would have been the greatest sounding thing ever in the sahara...instead we got fart can

i considered myself a Magnetic Man fan before seeing them and now, not so much. Even the MC fucking forgot to introduce the 3rd member.... REALLY?

This set sucked. The hype guy was distracting and annoying.

No sound.

I made the mistake of leaving Beardyman early to catch the last end of MM to get a good spot for Sasha. Probably my worst decision of the weekend because Magnetic Man blew donkey balls. That shit was slow and boring.

yea that definitely wasnt benga. it was sargent pokes, hes an MC from the uk

and i have mixed feelings about this set. had their bass been louder it would have been way better. im glad i stuck around for sasha though cuz that was breathtaking.

The lack of bass made me sad. It didn't live up to what I had hoped it would be. Still had a lot of fun at their set and wish they would roll out a US tour for Magnetic Man.

04-30-2011, 12:26 PM
So what exactly was going on with their equipment during their set? I was in the front, it was still really fun and I didn't notice that the bass was turned down low. But then when they played "Perfect Stranger" the bass got really loud all of a sudden, was that the equipment magically working again?

i agree that the sound was a off and a bit quiet but i enjoyed their set....kinda liked the MC's voice too....maybe it was being under the influence though.

Definitely the biggest disappointment of the weekend for me. I shouldn't be able to stand and have a conversation with my friends in the middle of the sahara while freaking Magnetic Man is playing. The sound sucked, the hype man was brutal and they were just boring.

Honestly this was my worst conflict of the weekend. Magnetic Man vs Cut Copy to Monarchy. After reading all you guys have to say I am so happy I chose Cut Copy to Monarchy which was my number 2 and 1. (Monarchy being 1 and Cut Copy 2.)

Buraka Som Sistema did this in 2009 and it was actually really cool. I enjoyed Magnetic Man's set though, it definitely wasn't my favorite, but I had a good time. I can't believe people who hated it stayed the whole time just to wait for Sasha, it was pretty easy to get up close for Sasha, even if you got there 10 minutes after he started.

I had a dream last night that a member on this board took a cam into a movie theater and recorded the movie Magnetic Man: The Story of Magneto staring a fat-alcoholic Robert Downey Jr.

Yeah but didn't they like......bring the energy back up and play audible music after doing it?

It's been done by many DJs for some time. The Prodigy @ Pukkelpop 2010 to 'Smack My Bitch Up' and Zane Lowe @ Coachella 2009 to 'Sandstorm' are two that I've been a part of along with Mag Man.

I'd like to see Tiga.

Since Magnetic Man is singular, why didn't they just call themselves Magnito?
