    Default Girl Talk

    So I looked at the wikipedia page for greg's last album "Night Ripper" and it shows all of the names of the songs in the songs... pretty crazy stuff

    I like what i've heard - just waiting for the music player to help me swat up on the many other acts i'm not familiar with.

    I guess I'll be following ghettojournalist around.
    I've only heard Girl Talk since a couple of days ago, loved what I've heard so far, and I usually hate mash-ups. I'll be there.

    Girl Talk is okay, I don't like all the mainstream rap. Some of the stuff just doesnt mix. like that part of Hand Clap when he mixes Friends of P with hollaback girl :-\.

    Nuff said. I dont think Coachella will allow the crowd on stage. At the be the riottt festival they stopped his set after 10 minutes.

    You can watch his whole set at www.betheriottt.com

    Coachella won't let the crowd on stage.

    So, you're watching a nerdy dude press "play" on a laptop and yell things at the crowd while a rap song and a rock song play at the same time. HELL YES.

    Do you know for a fact he's simply pressing "play" and nothing else?
    Do you know what sequencer software or interface he's using? Did you set up his laptop for him?

    People accuse laptop performers of this all the time and while occasionally it may be true, they refuse to accept the possiblity that the performer may be talented enough to not have to simply press play. For a guy who's spent possibly a thousand hours entrenched in those samples it may not be that hard to juggle them on the fly. There's a lot of nifty midi controllers out there that make it possible to do what Girl Talk does live.

    But of course, I take this all back if you in fact do know exactly how Girl Talk performs. Do you?

    For how long? His entire set? or does he frequently go back and mess with his laptop?

    Honest question. I'm not defending Girl Talk, just saying there's people like him who improvise much or even most of their shows.

    Another thing to remember is that most of the people who bag on EDM artists are indie snobs who are comparing them to an indie paradigm. Aside from festivals, it costs ~$10-$20 to see Girl Talk perform. Compare that to $50+ to see some pretentious band play the same damn songs over and over again.

    Who cares if the guy just presses play on a laptop? Just because a genre of music doesn't really lend itself to live recreation doesn't mean it can't be fun to listen to with a crowd.

    I forget the name of the program he was using (not Ableton, and he's a Dell guy), but it was a pretty basic looping program. He had an area where he could drag and drop samples in, so he can probably change up his show at freewill. I'd say he spent more than 80% of the show messing around with his laptop. Some samples that people were really enjoying got more playing time than those that got lesser crowd reaction.

    As for his encore Nirvana cover, he just loaded the song up into Cool Edit Pro (not Audition even), and hit play.

    edit: from his various sets that I've heard, there's been some variety. He seems to use the same few samples as an intro, and I'm sure the ending is predetermined, but the in-between gets jumbled around from show to show.
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    Girl Talk shows are in-friggin-sane. I saw him in Toronto in October. He doesn't 'just press play'. He'll probly have a ton of new samples ready for the Coachella set...I can't wait.

    Yeah, I think things will be a lot different when they're performing at 4PM outdoors instead of 11PM in a dark club.

    well see you have to think about the fact that in music when you sample you can only get so many seconds of a song before it becomes illegal and the guy uses only 1-10 second clips of a song at a time and clears the accapellas for use. He's actually expanding the law as he makes music and to me that is coachella.

    thumbs up from KenMixtape on girl talk. I hadn't heard him before this week and he's now on the 'must sees' list. I eat this kinda shit up.

    False. Girl Talk doesn't go along with this rule. A lot of the samples are clearly over 10 seconds. There is an interview on Pitchfork about how he just hopes that nobody minds, and if so that they just send a "cease & desist".
