    Same here. His stuff has been the best output from Hotflush recently hands down. When the vocal sample in that track kicks in I just start giggling haha... It's so fucking ridiculous.

    Luke Hess totally blew me away last night. I haven't danced that hard for that long in a while. Such a nice guy too.

    Beat matching with vinyl is much more difficult. Not that Deadmau5 would know...

    Though I do respect him for coming out and saying that they actually don't do shit up there in their little booths.

    I always felt like you can blame the audience for gobbling this type of shit up. Look a lot of these kids aren't out there trying to think about how hard is is to do whats happening on stage. They just wanna get fucked up and are happy when they actually recognize songs.

    beat matching on vinyl is more natural to me; just a few fingers on that wax does the trick. its like, physical and shit. (im wildly hungover and stupid as can be right now)

    Oh shit, that's right, I forgot this thing happens. I was so disappointed I had to miss last year since it's only like 2-3 hours away, but I had just come back from ATP and had to start working. Underground Resistance! Donato Dozzy! etc.! Keeping my eye on this.

    Back from music adventures. Had to pop in here and say how blown away I was with Blawan. Missed him (mostly) at Sonar, as his B2B with Mary Anne Hobbs turned out to be more like 30 minutes of him, 30 minutes of her (and I wandered over at least 20 minutes in), but caught his set at Fabric this weekend and he was terrific.

    This is a bit negative and out of place in this thread, but here it is anyway: after going to Fabric and a bunch of parties in Spain, I once again have to wonder how people can dare claim the US crowds at clubs are so terrible in comparison. I've never seen people so fucked up, so unaware of what was going on around them, and so lacking knowledge and interest in the music. Fabric in particular, absolutely awful crowd, the sort that I'd associate only with bridge & tunnel crowds here. I suppose Berlin may be different (or at least a venue or two there), that may have to be my next pilgrimage.

    Edit: That sounds overly negative, I didn't mean to imply that I didn't have a GREAT time. It's just such a disappointment that even some of the most widely talked about clubs are full of douchebags. My expectations must be too high. Thank god for good sound and good lineups.

    Fabric is a massive tourist trap with no door policy, what did you expect.

    I didn't expect the crowd to be worse than the worst tourist trap/bridge & tunnel clubs here. That's all. There's a lot of talk about how terrible American crowds are for EDM shows. While I think that's true sometimes, almost every event I've been to overseas has had a worse crowd than I've seen at US shows. Starting to feel like in order to for venues to be popular enough to attract (and pay for) great bookings, it has to be supported by masses of idiots who've just come to get completely fucked and to pull.

    Well, as I said, maybe the next trip I'll focus on Berlin and venues with door policies. (For what it's worth, I didn't go there specifically to go to Fabric - had a 11PM-10AM layover at LHR, so it seemed like a reasonable thing to do with the free time, and I'm not sorry I went since Shed and Blawan were quite good!). I saw a ton of great music while away but am so very glad to be back in SF where I can see good music with people who can behave like adults despite the substances they've swallowed.

    Edit: also I was really dismissive of people who poo-pooed on Sonar, saying it was only good 10 years ago. From the comments, I inferred that they were talking about the bookings, not... the crowd. What a shit show. I saw some really good acts, and thought the venue itself was pretty good (sound-wise, set-up) but holy crap the crowds were worse than US massives. It was only "lacking" kids in kandy and costumes.

    Function speaking w/ LWE in a recent interview:

    I actually like coming back to the States and playing. There’s sometimes where I have to step back and think to myself, like, when I go to New York and I play at Bunker, it’s like everybody knows what they’re hearing. They’re educated about the music, and there is this nice sense of hunger because they’ve been deprived of it, so they really make the most of it when they experience it. And they’re really educated maybe because they’re sort of deprived of it. Where in Europe sometimes you experience this shows where it’s just like — it becomes obvious to you, these people just want to go out and get off their tits. You have your fanbase and stuff like that, but I can definitely say that sometimes it seems a little bit watered down, especially in Berlin [with] the lengths of time that people are out and exposed to music. That experience gets diluted across 14 to 16 hours, where in the States it’s like it has to end by four or five, in some cities even earlier. So they’re soaking that up and really paying attention to it. That’s actually really inspiring to me, you know"

    Ben Klock had similarly nice things to say about playing in Minneapolis (as opposed to New York or a big Euro metropolis) some time back.

    Too bad that doesn't translate into more shows in smaller markets.

    True. FWIW though, Tucson has gotten some good acts in the past couple of years (Mark Farina, Aeroplane, the Twelves, etc.). Great crowds too. Nothing crazy good talent wise, but it's been nice.

    There are some events in New York where the crowd has been excellent (a great example being Omar S on Sunday - everyone was totally there for the music - just relaxing, dancing and having a great time), but there are also events where the crowd has ruined the event a bit for me. It really depends. I find generally that the smaller events have a better crowd. People are typically there for the artist and not because it's something to do/somewhere to get fucked up.
