    I too left early to see the no show Hawtin, but Cassy threw down regardless. Kind of upset I missed the rest of Moby, it wasn't that different than other Sahara artists in "style", but song choice was better than the norm.

    He didn't play anything remarkable, but for whatever reason it was the best time I had at the whole festival. The vibes in the tent were huge, everyone just getting down the whole time. Something about the selection, his antics, and the visuals just clicked with the crowd and it was super fun.

    Fine if that doesn't appeal for you, but don't shit on those of us who loved it.
    You sound like somone who walked into the sahara tent once in his life, and then claimed it was the best set ever. 100% of the sahara lineup sucked ass. Smd, disclosure, james blake all were put in smaller tents and every other solid edm act was in the yuma. If you wanted to hear good funky dance music i suggest you look outside of 1998.

    (a) Moby's set really sounded nothing at all like the other acts I saw in the Sahara (Prydz, Nicky Romero, Fedde Le Grand, Mord Fustang, Danny Avila).

    (b) I don't think you can reasonably say that Prydz's set sucked. It was fucking incredible.

    For all of you who loved Moby's DJ set (which I walked by and didn't stay because I had different acts to see), have you ever seen him DJ before? And if you have, was it in the last 5 years (since 2008, let's say)?

    I've seen him DJ about 4 or 5 times at various fests/raves around the country...it's always been fun but nothing that unbelievable. The first time I saw the set I'd say it was really mind-blowing, but this was in 2008 when I had mediocre taste in edm; if I saw the same set today I doubt I'd find it special.

    Oh and every time I've seen him he's played Thousand and gotten on the table/speakers. Soooooo... good to know he's still doing that. 5 years later... It sounds like he's been doing it since 2000?!

    Safe to say, I'm happy with decision in skipping Moby. The Sahara looked cool though.
    Fair, I'd never seen Moby before. That was part of the reasoning behind going to see him at all.

    And to be honest, a part of what I liked about it was its throwback quality. I've come to enjoy modern electro- and dubstep- influenced stuff, but it was really nice to hear something that sounded like what I would have heard a decade ago.

    Prydz and Moby were the best sets I've seen in the Sahara for a few years at least.

    ROFL.

    Yeah, my path was something like this:

    * got up too late to see Robert Johnson, but it's ok, i'll catch him at Governor's Ball.

    * went to see Mord Fustang. Was bored.

    * went to cloud nothings. had a blast. danced my ass off. got my wristband caught in someone's backpack zipper.

    * came out of cloud nothings, all wired and dancey, and ran over to danny avila because at least there i knew i'd be getting something equivalently high energy.

    It was good, but was it AMAZING? If you say yes, then you're an idiot.

    OK, I saw maybe 20 minutes of this set, but I'm listening to the full download. I don't understand the negative reactions at all. Nothing about this was mainstream or hits, and there isn't a single moment of dub or dubstep as someone else suggested. This set was gobs and gobs of delicious old school techno, which was a ballsy move for the Sahara.
    It's sad when people consider the old school flavor to be bland, because if it weren't for these sounds, EDM would be nothing today.

    As far as someone saying he was jumping around too much like Steve Aoki, that is a ridiculous thing to say. Moby has been doing that better since the late 80s and Aoki practically owes his entire shtick to him.

    LONG LIVE THE OLD SCHOOL!

    You are admiting to seeing nicky romero. That invalidates all of your other musical opinion. You spend a lot of time at pacha dont you? There are fantastic djs destroying brooklyn every weekend and you went all the way to coachella to see nicky romero and fedde le grand?

    you said jib and hep; well done.

    My, you're an arrogant asshole.

    No, i've never set foot in Pacha.

    I went all the way to Coachella because I started going to Coachella when I lived in California, and because I've had a blast each of the seven times I've gone; I bought tickets in the presale, and IIRC I bought my plane tickets before the lineup was announced.

    It was good. I don't get the dropping jaw awe from the lovers. Crimescene is right on with his assessment. It was fun, hardy, old school techno. It's what he's been doing for YEARS. Maybe if you all would get your heads out of SHM and Skillless and the likes asses you wouldn't be so surprised (not that the is anything wrong with a good Coachella surprise). But it's like going to see Dizzy Gillespie and thinking wow he really plays that trumpet well. NO SHIT!
