    It was great, but I was super pissed the new lights at the top everywhere weren't working... I was really hoping to trip out on that shit while Sasha was bringing the place down

    Were the lights supposed to be working for that? I was under the impression that he was just doing his own Vortek thing on stage.

    It was so much better than the ultra set in every way.

    Sasha was great.

    and those lights might have added something if we had been far enough back to be underneath them....

    My buddy that I was with doesn't even like EDM all that much but was completely impressed with Sasha's set. Extremely captivating, perfect set structure and his mixes were cleaner than anyone there, as expected.

    Him and Shpongle were the top two Sahara acts for me over the weekend.

    SASHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YESSSSS!!!!!!!


    I have been djing since i was 12 years old and have looked up to sasha since the beginning of it all. After ten years of waiting to see him play he ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED IT. OMG! it was everything and more. I respected his decision to not use the sahara light installation. I know if i had my own visual setup to bring to an event id want the main focus on it.

    As far as EDM goes, I think I preferred The Chems, Sven and Leftfield to Sasha, but that's some damn good company. Sasha was really great, wish I had opted to see the entire set. I feel like I left right before he took things to the next level.

    Also, props to the dudes next to me who were chanting "essential. essential. essential. essential" like the whole thing was a fuckin essential mix hahaha. Funniest moment of the whole weekend for me.

    I really wish i would have missed sven's total trainwreck, but other than that the set was great. leftfield and chems were my favorite of the weekend with sasha right behind.

    He uses a special low pass filter that enhances the bass.

    What happened? I caught patches of his set, so maybe I missed something.

    Near the beginning. He was mixing out of a track and it only had a little mids and bass in there and he didnt pay attention. It was an unnoticable trainwreck for about 20 seconds. The volume was so low on the track he was mixing out of that it didnt sound like a disaster but i heard it, and i saw him once he heard it. He looked up to see if everyone noticed, but noone did.

    From the best sahara set thread.

    Had that track been louder, it would have been terrible but i guess thats why he didnt notice for so long.

    I worry that DJ's like this have a bleak future at coachella - it seems that with each passing year the sahara lineup features less class and more cheese. LOVE the live EDM acts in the mojave, but can't envision a DJ in there.

    Hope I'm wrong to be concerned
