    I have to go with Bonobo. Been building up to it since the lineup announcement. Not ready to just throw it out the window.

    For me, any conflict that works out to DJ set vs Live set almost always ends up with me going for the live set. So Bonobo wins this one pretty easily for me.

    He made one of the best albums of 2011 - Space is Only Noise. Dude was exploring the similar sonic textures as James Blake back in 2008 and then rose up on the Wolf & Lamb label in NYC. Slow tempo, negative space shit.



    This will be a DJ set, though.

    Bonobo will have a live band, right? Choice seems obvious if that's the case.

    Good to hear! You would probably dig his DJ sets, too.

    I voted for Bonobo although I saw Nicolas Jaar - biggest regret.
    Wish I had seen Bonobo and gone to see darkside later instead.

    Nicolas Jaar is not garbage - go clean your ears.
    For one - he draws out his sets with skill, layering in slow psychedelic sounds, layer after layer, with a slow BPM to drive songs forward.

    One of the first to introduce a really slowed down BPM - its his signature.
    Listen to "Mi Mujer" and "And I Say"

    My problem with him though is if you see him really late at night, especially after a strong amped dj - he can totally kill the mood and put the crowd to sleep.
    Saw him in Brooklyn at 3am after an amazing French House dj took the decks and he went from being the most highly anticipated set, to the guy that thinned out the crowd...

    I personally like his Darkside stuff more (Boiler room set from NY is phenomenal).
