Thread: that was hands down theworst display of EDM ever.....

    It was my first year and the sahara was interesting...I had two encounters with it, once with Breakbot who I got close to and was a good set that I could get in to, and Flux Pavilion who I was in the back for and although they were good, I just couldn't get into it.

    as for the edm this year I thought it was okay for what it was.
    breakbot- groovy as hell
    sebastiAn- that man bears no soul. His music vibe and visuals were twisted, not necessarily in a good way
    Madeon- Best set of friday. Kid killed it
    Alesso- He brought the juice. Great set if he was the only dj playing that style of music
    stephen jacobs- was mad chill listening to this dude at the do lab

    Jaques Lu Cont- I relly enjoyed his set. Good french house, definitely not generic

    dada life- worst set of the weekend for me. I don't understand how ppl like these guys. Music is noise and they're corny as fuck. How do you dance to this? Left for Araab Muzik which was pretty dope
    Nero- I don't like their intro but I was digging their set during my eyes. To bad I left early for a late justice
    Justice- I fucking loved their set. Only con was that they were late. Other than that Top 3 sets of the weekend.
    Calvin Harris- saw him for 20 minutes. I kinda liked it.
    Modeselektor- Best set of the weekend. I never danced so hard in my life... (scratch that I danced harder for the presets in 09)


    Sunday was a solid day for edm, friday was ok and saturday was non existent.

    Honestly stunned by the bolded part. Nero was amazing...they played their whole album and their old classics, mixing them together beautifully and transitioning live with keyboards. Justice pressed play and pretended to mix a prerecorded set with incredibly boring songs that lasted 10 minutes...Nero absolutely destroyed Justice.

    The mix from Angst (stress remix) into Reaching out accapella vs Promises instrument, into reaching out instrumental vs the recluse accapella was PHENOMENAL. Justice didn't come close to even attempting anything as great as that

    There was some GREAT EDM for me last weekend. I just hated the crowd in the Sahara. Fucking terrible people everywhere. I'm only 24, but maybe I'm just getting too old for the Sahara.

    for the most part the sahara is dead but only because they have to appeal to the mass. i for one danced my ass off in the mojave and gobi never went harder in my life.
    the sahara is ok but only for the artists that you personally like .. when i first went into the sahara at night i was just like damn! am i in an Oc rave?

    The one thing that I am hopeful for next year is that GV wouldn't book David Guetta/Girltalk/SHM/Avicii etc again, right? It sucks that we got so many of them this year, but I think that saves room for less error for next year.

    They were great, played almost their whole album and all their older classics, mixed everything really well and transitioned/improved on the keyboards. I'm a huge Nero fan and compared to their DJ sets the live show blew me away

    Fuck no! If an artist is creating art to make money then they are a fucking sellout. If they think that their art is worth millions of dollars, they are pretentious douchebags! Art and music is for expressing and exchanging ideas. Ideas shouldn't cost money!

    You definitely posted that in the worst possible thread, Rukes.

    Haha, yeah, although ignoring the title, I thought it was developing into just a general EDM discussion, but then I looked a bit more....yeah...haha. Maybe I will make a separate post instead.

    it's the first set i've seen in a long time where the visuals killed my ability to enjoy the music.

    Datsiq was amazing although im sure most of this board missed them.
    Sebastion killed it.
    Justice made up for being bad weekend 1.
    Nero was very fun.
    Feedme could have easily closed the sahara on any of the nights and would have done better than the ones who actually closed it. Danced my dick off while the sun was still out? WTF?!?
    Guetta was okay..
    Modeselektor was very good.
    Subfocus WAS AMAZING! But they didnt let him play his last song which was fucking lame.

    Not a bad lineup....stop looking for mainstream shit.

    I think his visuals would've made more sense to a European crowd. Things are pretty dire over there atm.

    Wow I caught Afrojack and Mt. Eden... Afrojack sucked, Mt. Eden was fucking awesome. However, I danced the most at Beats Antique. That wasn't even in the Sahara.

    I spent a good amount of time in the Sahara, and I enjoyed myself every minute. If I had to choose a "worst act," it would be Zeds Dead, just because I couldn't stand Omar Linx. Nonetheless, I got down during that set. Feed Me's DJ set was a big surprise for me. He should've closed the tent with his live set instead of Datsik.
