Did anyone else watch this mindfuck of a set? They pushed the Sahara's sound system and lighting rig to the limits, used a live drummer and (at times) guitarist, and made all their best tracks sound insane. They weren't seen by many, but everyone I ran into that did felt it was up there with the best of the weekend. It was definitely my favorite set.

This was my favorite surprise. EVERYONE that left duck and came back for Bloody Beetroots should be kicking theirselves in the ass. I literally have never listened to Chase + Status until seeing them live and they were easily my favorite Sahara act of the weekend.

Their set was fucking sick. All the shirtless moshing bros trying to flatten everyone in sight the entire time... not so much.

the first bass drop on "No Problem" blew the freaking canopy off my tent in the camp grounds.. absolute raw bass fueled warfare..

i was really happy to see them drop some of their classic dnb tracks

like it was 1989

awesome set, but where was Plan B for Pieces? and I was really looking forward to hearing him sing End Credits too but they didn't even play it (unless they did an encore, I left after they started their last song Fool Yourself). otherwise it was a nice dose of drum n bass for the Sahara... and holy shit, the bass during Eastern Jam was heavenly. I even got to meet Skream and Niall from Jack Beats in the crowd, both nice guys.

AMEN! I was also glad that all the midday dome brochella douchebags that were at High Contrast (and Duck Sauce trendy folks) didn't have a clue to stick around for this. I was so glad to finally be in like company to see some true DnB. I was definitely digging the Dub drops too. Add live instruments & a vocalist and I was in heaven. LOVE!!

I lost my fucking shit. They were everything and more. Best Sahara set of the weekend and I only saw 15 minutes.

Best set of the weekend by far. I lost it when they played pieces. I've been djing for 12 years and that's still my favorite all time track. Hearing it live made everything else at coachella pointless. The entire weekend could have been a fail and they still would have made it a great coachella.

First off, dont hate on the moshers. I am at Johns Hopkins U and I do work all the fucking time. I want to get rowdy and burn off some stress sometimes, and Chase and fucking Status is a perfect place to do such a thing. The Sahara is huge, just step back. Second, holy god yes what a set! They played all of their good songs and thrashed my brain into oblivion. Hearing Eastern Jam, No Problem, Flashing Lights, Smash TV, Pieces...the list goes on. Thank you Coachella for getting them to the fields!

Ugh. I was standing next to a group of them. I was trying to get my groove on, and I kept thinking I was going to get punched or kicked.

Bro-step.

Thank God someone had the sense to put this thread up!
Chase & Status were one of my must sees and it broke my heart to miss the strokes for them but after that set I have no doubt that I made the right choice.

All the people who left after Duck Sauce missed one of the best sets of the weekend. Only Cut Copy edged it in my opinion.

Great atmosphere and I thought the pits were fun as the attitude of the people taking part was good.

Their set was seriously one for the history books they were the act that was genuinely my number one must see and they destroyed it!!! Almost shed a tear when they announced their last song their set was WAY too short!

I knew it was gonna be fun, but I would say this act was the biggest surprise at the weekend. I was expecting a fun set, instead I got one of the coolest Sahara acts I have ever been too. It wasnt just for hard dnb fans it was for everyone. Every fucking sound they put into their show was mixed to perfection. Holy shit this was a great fucking set.

No appearance by Plan B was kind of a bummer, but whatever Shit was still poppin

This set was epic. Everybody complaining about the moshers need to stfu. Its dnb and if you didnt like it you coulda gone to the back. Def the best set of the weekend. Can't wait to see them this weekend in LA.

personally i loved seeing saxon live, that is one of my favorite tracks by them. hit so hard in the sahara.

Came after Lightning Bolt as well and was surprised at how empty the back of the Sahara was, which made me enjoy it even more for the time we were there

I missed them because I was front row for Ratatat, but I'm not that bummed about missing them as I will be seeing them this Saturday at the Music Box in Hollywood. :)

I was so bummed I had to miss them, but Ratatat -> Strokes took precedence. I am kind of regretting seeing The Strokes instead of these guys. Oh well.

Behind HC this was my favorite set. THEY THREW IT DOWN. I use to mosh alot when I was younger but I dont anymore but they had me feelin it and I had to jump in for a second. Pure Rage. Epic.

Was your fav moment at HC when they played C&S' opener? Such a sick tune.

They were AMAZING. I was looking forward to them, but was a little apprehensive about missing a few others I had wanted to see and planned on leaving halfway through. I ended up staying the entire time and don't regret my decision. When people started returning to the Sahara for (insert whoever played after them- Bloody Beetroots?) they all got super into it as well. They were definitely in my top 5.

I fully agree with all of the positive feedback. We stumbled over to the Sahara a little early for the Bloody Beatroots, and were able to catch the last four songs. They were sick! At times they reminded me o Pendulum, especially the last song.

djandrews25
04-20-2011, 12:38 PM
I didnt come in here to talk shit on them, i was there for the first 2 songs and it was the same tired dubstep that ive been avoiding for a couple years so i left. I wanted to hear some good dnb and it sounds like they dropped it later but to say this was the best set all weekend?? Did you guys not see much last weekend? And i never said once that sasha was the best set, clearly he has more people saying that about him but he wasnt my number one.

frozen pilgrim
04-20-2011, 12:42 PM
andrew I don't think they were the best, and I also think opening with two dubstep tunes in a row (don't remember what they opened with but I was surprised to hear eastern jam. welcome to 2007!) was weird. but man, stuff like fool yourself, no problem... C&S were certainly in my top 5 for the weekend

djandrews25
04-20-2011, 01:00 PM
I went to see them knowing they could put on a good show, i guess i should have showed up near the end. I was simply stating how stupid this thread title was. How about "Chase and Status killed it" or "Chase and Status were amazing."

Tandemind

This set was my 4th favourite set of the weekend.

The opened with dnb, not dubstep.

Dustin da DnB Soulja

They opened up with "No Problem" 1st song on their No More Idols cd, and that is NOT DUBSTEP in any way, shape or form.

I couldnt disagree more. C&S play music with soul. Their dubstep was amazing. It couldnt be any further then brostep (which admittedly I dont hate). They did play quite a few dnb tracks but peppered in the new dub step too.

Hands down set of the weekend for me. Seeing pieces live alone made the weekend.

This set, as I knew it would be, was amazing. Very sexual, powerful and danceable. Eastern Jam was face melting, and Pieces and Blind Faith were soul cleansing. All around one of the best sets of the weekend. Cool visuals too...

chase and status was the set i was looking for all weekend. i had never heard of them before and they took me on a journey. filthy bass lines, amazing visuals and it was live! every video i look at on youtube sucks because the bass in that fuckn tent could not be recorded by any camera known to man.
