    Why did you think I was flaming? Is Format:B a laughable suggestion?

    I thought you were making a joke about the bold font in the quoted post above yours. I didn't know Format:B was a group of any sort until I asked my friend Google.

    Confining my wishlist to realistic possibilities (per my reading of recent booking trends). I'm guessing the Sahara will see no more than 3-4 compelling non-dubstep, non-electro, non-clown house acts/year moving forward.

    So, for next year, I'm hoping those acts are:

    Richie Hawtin, Sasha & Digweed, Paul Kalkbrenner (prob a stretch).

    The above, admittedly unoriginal list, does not necessarily reflect what I'd really like to see in the Sahara but I'm shooting for acts that can 1) draw a crowd and 2) merit a decent time-slot. My experience at Sven this year led to the realization that the Sahara simply is not the place for contemporary house/techno. Sven was great musically but something is lost when the tent is barely half full with many people just sitting down. If that's the response for a legend, I shudder to think what the turnout would be for house/techno acts with less name recognition.

    This has me wondering about the possibility of putting such acts (e.g. Dixon, Prins Thomas, Todd Terje, MCDE, Cio D'or, Marcel Dettmann) in the Do-Lab. I'm curious as to the contractual relationship between whatever entity curates the Do-Lab and GV. I assume the former handles the booking ... does the latter pay the artists? How much creative control does GV have? This obviously entails capital outlays above and beyond whatever is currently required, given the upgrade in artist quality. I guess I'm envisioning the Do-Lab as a house/techno-focused version of the Pure-Filth stage. Although acts of the sort I've identified have no hope of coming close to packing the sahara, they ought to be able to attract a crowd appropriately sized for the Do-Lab.

    End rant. Sorry if this has been floated before.

    Point taken. Didn't feel it warranted a new thread. Perhaps it belongs somewhere else.

    They, usually only one spinning though, are horrible. They play a lot of brostep and electro, never any of their good old stuff. Such a disappointment when I saw "them."

    Is there an explanation for that? I saw "them" about a month ago and was surprised to see only one guy up there. I assumed the other was sick or something, but this is actually a common thing?

    weird, since every show theyve done in LA had some of their old dnb tracks and the most 'brostep' it got at hhm was Chase & Status tracks
