    That's undoubtedly true. I think it's mostly that so many people making the stuff work from such a limited palette. They're not really bringing anything new to the table that wasn't covered by the Basic Channel crew the first time around. There are exceptions though.

    That depends on what you consider a good time. There's a very small dance area and a lot of coked out hollywood types. I usually enjoy it in spite of this because the weather is normally gorgeous and I'm with a group of friends who can make anything fun.

    From a programming perspective I'm genuinely impressed.

    Snoop DJing > anything in the Sahara. WTF is going on?!

    Maybe we'll luck into a surprise DJ set. Lulz.

    I'm surprised that people are surprised that Snoop has decent taste in music and was able to find some not so obvious tracks.

    I knew nothing of an affinity for house music. Its not like this is a hip-hop mix (which I would obviously expect to be fucking amazing). And I'm dead serious about wanting a DJ set at Coachella.

    DJ Snoopadelic... I'd watch.

    Yeah, give it a listen if you haven't done so already. Some great tracks in there.

    In all honestly, there's probably a good number of Coachella artists that have solid taste in house/techno. Its just that none of them will be playing in the Sahara.

    Finally listening to that just now ^^

    Fantastic! The whole mix is great but -32:00 and on is certainly my cup of tea.


    Edit: More techno

    This is an absolute monster. Plucked from the recent Delsin label promo mix.

    Oof, must hear this played out. May be my favorite track of 2012 thus far.

    I don't have time to get into the whole night now, but DJ Harvey might have been the best DJ set I've ever seen at a club. Just the perfect confluence of music, venue, sound, crowd, drugs, atmosphere, everything. Every single person I saw looked like they were in absolute euphoria the entire night and were dancing with the wildest abandon I've ever seen in my life. Zero evidence of self consciousness or pretension. And Harvey is an absolute master in crowd control. He'd take something familiar and then just completely reconfigure it and stretch it out and find the craziest rhythm at the heart of it and then drop down the bass at the absolute perfect moment and just when you thought he'd moved on to something else, he'd bring back in the familiar melody or whatever and everyone would go crazy. Dude was fucking cosmic with his mixing (which was fairly sloppy on a technical level, but pitch perfect on an atmosphere level). One minute he'd be playing some classic disco track and it would morph into tribal African drumming and then go to some dark acid house type shit and then on to something else. Dancing to a 20 minute version of "I Feel Love" that went to the furthest reaches of outer space and back as the whole crowd sang along (and Harvey dropped out the sound for a few seconds to let us be heard during "loooooooove") will forever be my favorite birthday memory. If dude plays a DEMF after party, my ticket will be bought immediately.

    Nicolas Jaar was also incredible. That guy has pure natural talent and he is only going to get better as time goes on. I'm excited to see him grow as a musician.

    Harvey is an absolute legend. Has to be one of the coolest record bags on the planet. Would love to make it down to LA for a Sarcastic Disco party.

    I was really disappointed that he didn't make it to DEMF last year, and then I ended up skipping him when he was in SF. Will have to remedy that in the future.

    Wasn't very impressed by Nicolas Jaar last night at all. He did a live set here in November, sans band, which was a lot better IMO.

    DJ Harvey should definitely be a late night thing. He probably would have been fun at DEMF, but nowhere near this good.

    Jaar did some stuff with the band, then he did some stuff just by himself, then one song as an encore with the band again. It all felt very off the cuff. It didn't connect at all points, but it was really exciting and there were some absolutely sublime moments. Plus, the crowd was amazing. Everyone was moving and into it and in good spirits and not douchey.

    Crowd may have had a lot to do with our show. It wasn't the worst crowd I've experienced in SF, it was just a lot different than I expected, for the venue, for the act, and for a Sunday night. Lots of super drunk and really stoned people. Had to deal with a lot of talking - during quieter parts of the set, could hear multiple conversations over the music. I wish it were socially acceptable to punch people in the face when they talk loudly through a set. I would have punched this chick last night, but she was a lot bigger than me, and I probably would have gotten beaten up.

    Hmmmm I hope the crowd is good for the LA show tonight... I'm betting on no, but I'll try to get close to focus. Really excited for this show

    I hope so too. Sometimes SF just has poor crowds for these kinds of shows. In all fairness, I was a shit show this weekend and only barely pulled myself together to go to Nico at all, so I might have been pissier than usual about crowd problems. I ended up bailing after about 45 minutes because it was not enjoyable. I heard the encore was better, less corny saxophone.

    Makes me wish I was moving up there sooner. I would love to see Demdike live.

    Do you live in Seattle? Are there a good amount of mnml/house shows up there? I know there is Decibel festival..

    No, I live about 30 mins outside of Downtown LA. Just saw the info for that show as a sign of hope for an LA date. I'll be so disappointed if they pass us up; and what the hell, while they're at it they should bring Andy Stott and Claro Intelecto out and make it a Modern Love night.

    Not sure about the minimal/house scene up there but I'd imagine it's pretty good since they do have a thriving music scene, just probably not spoiled like Los Angeles. Magda and friends were just there recently, so it's definitely not dead.

    There's some. I think it's a fairly good scene for the size of the city. There is a Seattle thread on the board, it's not very EDM oriented, but there are some folks on it who would definitely know of upcoming shows of that type.

    The people who put on decibel are doing monthly shows now, and there are some good shows at ETG at least a couple of times a month, as well as undergrounds.
