leftfield was fucking insanity - <3d it
Here are the videos I took:
While I don't post on these boards very often at all (as made obvious by my post count), I nevertheless wanted to mention that I had such an awesome time meeting some of you (who I assume do post on here fairly often). I've forgotten your names but perhaps you'll be able to recognize yourself in these videos. Being around such amazing people made Leftfield even more incredible. This goes down as one of my favorite musical experiences of all time.
Amazing stage show. They blew me away. My Coachella find for 2011.
"Well, that's just like, you know... your opinion, man"
Leftfield was fucking awesome! So glad I got to see them
Unbelievable set, possibly my favorite of the weekend. Like sex for the brain.
HOLY FUCKING MOTHER FUCKING SHIT THESE GUYS WERE FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!! i cannot express how i felt about them any other way than i just did, how the heck have i never even heard of them before? wow, just fucking wow. when the big french/african (?) black guy came on and started playing that electric pole instrument thingy (the name escapes me), i think my heart melted out of my body.
As much as I love Sasha and the Chems, this was probably the best electronic set of the weekend for me. Has anyone mentioned how incredible the drum work was?
Oh man, these guys were amazing beyond words. Best set of the day by far. Anyone who missed a minute of these guys for The Strokes was missing out.
I walked over to the main stage sign for PJ Harvey to meet-up with some friends and made a last minute decision to see Leftfield. While I know I am going to regret missing PJ slightly-- Leftfield was incredible. There was so much room to dance and get sexy. It was completely gorgeous.
i would like to thank this thread for helping me decide to check out this set. while i only caught the first half hour or so - i walked away incredibly impressed. one of the biggest surprises of the weekend for me
I'd been wanting to see Leftfield for a number of years now but since they hadn't been playing, I figured they would end up with the Future Sound of London as dance acts I'd never get to see in my lifetime. I wasn't even sure what to expect out of their set but I was diggin everything they threw out from the moment go. Good vibrant sounds, well mixed, a couple of live vocalists ("Afro Left" is my favorite song of theirs so to see the MC come out was a huge treat). Definitely glad I stuck to the plan and caught them, they were INCREDIBLE!
Let's Get Electrified! (stuck in my head since Sunday)
Wow what a great set! Definitely my favorite of the weekend. I was enjoying it so much and dancing so hard. Everything was so tight and on point about the set, I am so thankful I got to witness it. What a huge group we had come out for it to! Never experienced anything like it in the Mojave, what a beautiful way to end Sunday
Didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised, great set
I caught the last 40 or so minutes of it after Ramadanman and I was blown away. One of the sets I looked forward to most and it didn't disappoint at all. I was so dead by the time I made it over so I didn't really make my way to the front, but sitting in the back soaking it in was just amazing.
i think these guys know how to execute the most successful drop out of any group/producer i have ever heard.
3/2 Sasha // Big Gigantic
3/8 STS9, Cherub
3/19 Eric Clapton
3/21 EOTO, Govinda
4/4-4/6 Lotus @ Boulder Theater, CO
4/8 Sigur Ros
4/19 Umphrey's McGee // The M Machine
4/20 Dirty Phonics
5/31 Lucky Date
6/3 Postal Service
Here is one of mine:
HD should be available shortly.
I have some bad news guys: I caught up with Paul D (producer) shortly after their set, and asked about anymore US gigs, and he said not in the foreseeable future. Maybe in December at something, but he didn't sound very confident about it.
So good though. I was worried that they wouldn't have a big crowd but more people started showing up as it started. Plenty of space to dance and whatnot.
It wasn't Plastikman mind-blowing, but it was still a fantastic way to end the weekend for me.
does anyone remember their setlist? i'm trying to figure out the song they played 2nd or 3rd from last
^ indeed, it was "original"
that song made everyone get the fuck down
I'm really pleased that everyone had as good a time as I did. Neil Barnes & Co. really brought it. I think the set list went something like this (do fill in blanks or rearrange if I'm wrong):
Song of Life
Perfect set. Fit in eerily well with the desert wind.
And thanks for the videos
