    So are you saying Coachella needs to go back and book a bunch of DJ's that they have booked before or are you saying that Coachella was booking great DJ's before anyone else was?

    Why not both? Repeats aren't a bad thing after so many years and so much music being made inbetween

    Pretty sure he's saying, "I remember when Coachella used to book some of those DJs." You're the one grasping for some ulterior meaning.

    What was the venue problem? There were more dubstep kids there this year, but what do you expect? Edm has exploded in popularity and the ticket price is so low. Old ravers are old, and the young kids are starting to figure out what is good.

    The line to get in on saturday was the only time i noticed overcrowding, and we just swung around to the back entrance where there was no line.

    Next year we should all just rent out a hipster flat in the eastern market for like 2g's and fit 20-30 of us in there. Ill book a room at the troubletree this weekend just in case though

    If tough to make a real decision as to what my real favourites of the weekend were but in general I pretty much had more fun at any set at either the Beatport stage or the Made In Detroit stage than any other stage. The other stages all kind of sucked in comparison actually. When it came to dancing, groovin, and being fun in general, the crowds at the other stages never came close. Plus the Beatport stage owned sound-wise. Damn that was a powerful soundsystem.
    I seem to agree with this, but admittedly I missed out on a lot going at the other stages. These seemed to be the 2 stages I gravitated to the most over the weekend.

    So this was an interesting fest experience for me. I decided to go to this, because I'm not working right now, so I had the time to make it work. I really didn't know many of the artists playing, because I'm kinda an EDM novice. But everyone who I've talked to that has gone has loved it, so I decided to give it a try. Oh... that and the fact that Mr Creep allowed me in on his road-trip/hotel probably sealed the deal too. Thanks again, Jeff.

    So since I'm kinda a novice when it comes to these types of music, I was able for better or worse take the music I was seeing/hearing at face value. I really didn't have any pre-conceived ideas on anyone beside probably Moby, Richie and John Digweed going into this. When I'd spend time with Cara, Heidi, and Patrick, I'd listen to them and tag along with them to sets. If I liked it, I stayed. If not, I walked off and tried something else.

    First off- I loved Hart Plaza. It was a great venue. To me it didn't seem clusterfuckish. I mean this fest is in no-way close to any kind of packed like, say Coachella? The venue is spread out enough where that isn't a problem. The only time I noticed it was that was when I tried going down to the Underground stage for Nina Kravitz and it was so packed I just had to go away. That kinda kept me away from there for the rest of the weekend. I probably missed out on some awesome acts for that decision, but there was so much good music going between the Beatport, Made in Detroit and the Red Bull main stage that I didn't feel the need to venture down to the underground stage much.

    The highlights for me were Masters at Work on Sunday night, pretty much anyone I saw at the Made in Detroit stage on Saturday, Miguel Campbell, and Geroge Fitzgerald and Ellen Allien back-to-back on Monday were a lot of fun too. The Old Miami and Klockworks parties on Monday were both a lot of fun too.

    I was an idiot on Monday in that I wore the worst shoes for all the rain we got. So my feet froze off and I was pretty much done with the fest by 6PM.

    Overall, had a fun time, hung out with a lot of awesome people throughout the weekend. Thanks for putting up with me, giving me suggestions, and especially to Patrick for taking us to the Heidleberg project early Sunday afternoon before the fest. That was really cool and eye-opening. I'm pretty sure I'm in for next year

    Right? I felt bad that I was trashed all the time and didn't really get to hang out with you guys much (at least in the sense of being able to have coherent conversations).

    Really glad to hear you enjoyed it... each year it seems like a lot more friends decide to make the trip, which just makes it all the more enjoyable.

    I was a little on the trashed side 98% of the time too. All is good. Any length in mingling is still mingling. It was nice meeting you, Zach, Pat, Barb, MJA, and Sophia.

    Anyone else start bopping their knee a little bit when they have a phone to their ear as if your phone is a headphone and you are queing a record ? Or every time you are at a counter you get the feeling like you are DJ behind the decks and start bopping a bit?

    Just wondering what he meant by that. A lot of people on these boards love to hate on Coachella for some reason.

    I had just enough feeling left in my freezing feet to get down to that.

    I was shocked to only hear "Jack" from Breach 1 time last weekend. Unless I just missed the other 50 DJs that played that song?

    Maybe you can ID it now? He just posted his Movement set.

    I heard it 4 times, but only once was it the original version. The other 3 times it was the massive new Eats Everything Re-edit/Rebeef/Mashup thing. To hear what I'm talking about there's a rip of Catz N Dogz playing it in their new essential mix here:


    But J.Phlip played like an even crazier extended version of it that went like Jack-Je-Je-Jack-Je-Jack-Jack-Je-Jack that was really really sweet. Definitely got the biggest crowd reaction of her whole set.

    I was wondering if that was her edit of that track. I definitely heard Jack at least 4 times over the weekend.

    Already had it id'd from the dave clarke setlist.

    Dj hyperactive - wide open (len faki edit)

    I first heard it on new years day when nic fanciulli droped it. The entire stage gravitated towards his laptop to get the ID. Since then ive heard a ton of people play it, and at demf i heard it at least 5 times in various edited/remixed versions. Gotta say, maetrik droped it harder than anyone.

    I went to the party at city club on sunday night and the venue was easily the best in detroit. A huge upstairs stage, lots o chill out area and an giant underground cavern 3 stories down as the second stage that could hold hundreds of people. If there are parties at this place next year i highly recommend the venue.

    Yeah. It was pretty fun. I didn't stay for too long though. My friends and I decided to go to the Hot Creations party at about 1:30. That one was much better I thought. Very cool loft space at the top of a building downtown with windows all around. It was also probably the only afterparty I went to all weekend that had lots of girls in attendance. My other friends all said the Klockworks one was great too, but, like most of the techno parties, had very very few girls. And it's not like I'm some bro trying to hook up all weekend, I just have a lot more fun dancing when the guy-to-girl ratio is near even.
