    This, however, is VERY surprising. Mostly 128 tech-house or did they get into some weirder stuff, perhaps some proper techno even?

    It was all tech house and it was so groovy and sexy. It was the kind of set where I kept checking my phone to see what time it was and I would think,
    "oh shit! Theres another hour of this?! "
    "oh shit! Theres another half hour of this?!"
    "oh shit! Theres only 10 minutes left? "

    It was also the only set I was bummed I didn't record it but if I had I would not have had as much fun. Everyone I saw was getting the fuck down. The most I saw all weekend. I hope to god a recording surfaces. I think the reason I liked it so much because it was 2 hours of tech house (which is my favorite) and I hadn't heard tech house all weekend so it was a really refreshing change from the in your face oontz.

    My fondest memories were milling around the main and beatport stage during the late afternoon/early evening sets - just carousing, dancing, and carrying on with general merriment.

    That festival/weekend is absolutely wild. I can't wait to return.

    Tale Of Us had a surprisingly techno-heavy set as well.

    Yes, DVS1 was the special guest. I didn't catch very much of his set though because Daniel Bell was on at the same time (the outdoor stage was running 30 minutes late). We did see Mr. C dancing along at DVS1's set though

    Favorite festival moments were under the Stargate at the made in detroit stage watching dance offs. On the west coast, that sort of thing annoys the hell out of me, in Detroit, it's amazing. There was this lovely chick who had to have been a trained ballerina combining about a dozen perfect fouettés en tournant straight into breakdancing.

    That Voorn/Fanciulli set was so much fun! Definitely a highlight.

    And similarly, two of my biggest disappointments were Maceo Plex and Tale of Us... Hadn't seen a DJ set by Maceo Plex before and it was... underwhelming, to say the least... Tale of Us played great tracks (and as an added bonus, dropped a friend of mine's track... right after he walked away from the set), but they were mixing for shit...

    Tangentially, easily the most painful thing I was subjected to all weekend was the last 15 minutes of Photek's set that we caught.

    I'd really like to know too. It didn't occur to me until later that RBMA will probably have some stuff.

    Exactly. Why was Maceo so mediocre? I was also extremely dissappointed with Radioslave.
    Nic and Joris played a perfect set, it was pretty unbelievable.

    It was definitely tech house but towards the end it sounded a bit progressive. Beautiful melodies and perfect harmonies.

    It's funny. I have a hard time getting to the festival for more than a day or so because I live right here and can't seperate family/work stuff from being at the festival the whole weekend where as you guys are on vacation here so you have nothing better to do!

    Anyway, started my weekend Saturday night at the CLR party which is by far my favorite record label with the best podcast and I got a taste of it live Saturday night. Collabs, Drumcell, Monoloc and Tommy Four Seven all delivered. It was a very nice venue and a great party!

    Sunday was Shit Show which I think I went at the wrong time. I was there in the afternoon adn while Crossan and Rich Korach played nice sets but the party was kind of dead. When I left around 4:30 there were only like 75-100 people spread out around the venue.Wish I would have been there in the morning. I don;t know I usually swear off these 15+ DJ mega party extravaganzas and I think I will avoid again. I am picky I guess and unless I stay for the whole 12 hours then I end up missing someone who I really wanted to see but couldn't get to. So maybe it's better off I just don't go???

    The festival was nice on Sunday and I wish I would have spent more time there instead at Shit Show but I am a cheap ass and didn't want to waste my presale. Anyway Saw Hot natured, Mathew Jonson (who destroyed with that Decompression remix, Jesus), Josh Wink, Public Enemy, JaunAtkins (who I have no ieda what the hell he was doing). The festival is crodwed nowadays and it seems you needed to have a few brushes of Kesha esque flourescent paint on the body.

    Went to No Way Back which is Detroit all the way. Detroit (or from Detroit via Berlin) DJ's. Hot, dark room, and loud speakers. I like to say haunted house type techno. It was just awesome. They do the party every year. You may not recognize the DJ's but they are in fact world class and I think you should check it out.

    I heard Rare Form was a bust and Circo Loco got shut down??

    Glad everyone seemed to enjoy themselves though.

    Rare Form was definitely a bust from all accounts (I didn't bother going), and from what I understand Circo Loco got shut down around 4AM for being over capacity (and serving after hours, no doubt) but opened up again in the morning.

    Shit Show was terrific. It was possible to catch the best acts on their lineup without missing anything at the festival. They posted the set times in advance, and hopefully will do the same next year, so take a look at that first before making up your mind. We got there just before 7AM, had to wait about 15-20 minutes, it was fairly empty at first but who cares? I didn't mind having the roof mostly to myself and my friends for Daniel Bell's set. It filled up a lot after an hour or two. I actually really appreciated their scheduling, since I could do that party from around 7AM-1PM and still see everything I wanted at the fest. When the lineup was originally posted, I'd assumed I would have to miss a bunch of the fest to see Bell, so it was a pleasure to see he asked to play at 7AM

    Edit: not to imply the people playing later at Shit Show aren't good, Rich Korach is probably my favorite local (SF) dj, but for DEMF weekend, I wanted to go for the people I was not going to get to check out again for some time, ie, Kollektiv, Daniel Bell, Public Lover.

    I'm still baffled that you guys got booted from Shit Show. I have a feeling it wasn't anything you did but just that they'd had it with that corner of the patio.
    "Why don't you soul train out of here and save some face?" is my second favorite pull quote of the weekend after that text Alison got from some dude she rejected: "I'm on a motherfucking boat. Never forget."

    Shit Show. Flagrant K abuse: totally acceptable. Discreet joint smoking: ZERO TOLERANCE.

    Man, I've already tried to explain to you that no one outside the venue can see people doing k. However, they can smell the pot smoke. I heard people at Old Miami complaining that they were asked not to smoke pot there, too.

    That seems a likely explanation but still surprised people were bounced.

    Were they strictly enforcing a no-marijuana policy at the festival proper?

    No, though I heard a lot of people talking about people getting busted by the beatport stage. There seemed to be more security & cops concentrated in that area than anywhere else I was in the fest for whatever reason.

    Yes, I grabbed my books. Thank you!

    "for whatever reason" . . . Probably because the Beatport stage is pretty much DEMF's version of the drug bridge at the Gathering Of The Juggalos.

    Looks like the promoter is trying to make amends for the issues with Rare Form:
    http://www.facebook.com/events/36121...94259060615228

    Refunds being offered, or ticket(s) to Spring Awakenings, or guest list for another of their shows.

    Yes, it was oversold, ticket holders were not allowed in (even though they told they should have entrance until 1:30AM), people were waiting outside for hours, once people got in, they couldn't actually get to the room where the more notable acts were playing. I'm glad I didn't try to go - had gotten a few texts saying it was impossible, so we just waited and went to KMS instead.

    It seems to happen with at least one event every year. Nice that they are trying to do something to make up for it.

    I kind of do too. But I REALLY needed that time to normalize a little, so thank you for sticking around. Besides, if we would have went as hard as we did at KMS for a couple of extra hours, Old Miami very well might not have happened. I couldn't believe I had 3 hours of hardcore raging in me that night.
