I loved JOC, Aly&Fila, Shogun, and Sied van Riel's sets. Although overall JOC really, really ripped it up. Super excited to see him this upcoming week in Miami.
Arty.....is well Arty. Same set he has played almost for an entire year. Someone tell this guy people don't want to just hear your productions mixed/faded into each other for an entire year...
As for Gareth, he was all over the place. His set was not cohesive at all and was more or less a collection of music from all genres. Glad I will be missing his set at Ultra next weekend to go to an afterparty instead.
Do I even have to say who is in this section? Fei-Fei did not play anything other than Trance. It was horrendous. That whole prisoner of your own style bullshit is played out. This is called "A State of Trance" not a dubstep. Why in the hell would anyone book a dubstep dj for a trance event is beyond me, but whatever "She's popular in LA..."
You can defend them all you want, in fact I admire you for doing so, but don't you find it a little suspect that whenever these characters change their style and sound - it's always a "coincidence" they select whatever sound happens to be "popular" that month? - John Askew
A lot of artists today are just victims, not having control, and they're not free. And that's pathetic. If you start being dependent on money, then money has to reach a point to fit your expenses. - Thomas Bangalter
