I've been lurking in this thread since the beginning, been enlightened to a loooooot of good stuff, learned about some gigs, and even went to some of these gigs (Ed Banger 7th, going to HardNYC, the upcoming Designer Drugs show). The one thing that I've seen discussed but always always always at a very high level is actually creating your own mixes or sets. Is there any advice you guys could throw out for someone looking to get into mixing and DJing? At a very, very basic level to start and then I'll work my own way up, of course...

Holy poo poo was HardNYC amazing. Everyone killed it, Buraka Som Sistema and Major Lazer probably had the best sets. Much better crowd than the Ed Banger 7th too, everyone was into it this time and dancing and having an incredible time.

Can anyone say anything about Mustard Pimp? They are gonna be here later this month and I'm wondering if its worth going out and seeing them spin.
edit: I like their stuff but I dunno how well they preform

fwiw their burn paris burn is incredible and i'd probably pay just to listen to that in a club

Not trying to be "that guy", but does anyone care about Justice anymore? I've seen them twice, and both times I've been seriously disappointed. I dunno if it was them or the crowd or what, but they just ... weren't that good :/

Cross was unbelievable though. Maybe they're just a good album-making group?

If you thought Cross was amazing and Justice is a good album making group why would you ask if anyone cares about Justice anymore when the news is about *them making another album*.

The more that LA people post their opinions in this thread, the more I'm convinced that LA crowds loving suck. Numerous parties I've been to has only reaffirmed this notion.

Probably this, I saw them at Terminal 5 when they first came through supporting Cross and then again for Ed Banger 7th and they killed it both times.

I ventured out to Montclair, NJ to catch deadmau5 today. The show was fun as gently caress, the new cube is incredible and the whole light show is incredible. Say what you will about his talent or what he puts out, but he knows how to get a party going.

NJ loving sucks though and guidos loving suck and why the gently caress didn't he book a NYC show???

They're a lot of fun live, a bunch of my friends and I have caught them them every time they've come through NYC, but it's starting to get old after they've played 5 shows with the same exact setlist. It's about time for them to settle down and put out a new album. I kinda like this Steed Lord remix of Little Secrets, it may or may not have been originally posted in this thread?

Ricard Wilalobo is headlining at Fabric on the 21st, if that's your thing. And it's open til 2pm the next day.

I'm actually getting there on the 20th so I figure I'll go to Hot Pink Delorean at Egg, and then either Fabric or Rhythm Factory to catch DJ Jollan who knows a bunch of my boys in Brazil or Pacha for Gregor Salto on the 21st. Plus Streetlight Manifesto is at O2 Academy on the 22nd and I missed them in New York so that was a lucky coincidence. Are any of those clubs/venues crappy and not worth going to?

If anyone here's from NYC, the sign about the sauces at the end that he takes the letter from is right outside the Joy Burger Bar that's opening near the Cages on West 4th, an offshoot from the one up on 100th on the East Side. (fukken delicious burgers)

BTW, for those that want to see Skrillex, he's joining us on a bunch of tour dates this month opening for Deadmau5:

Oct. 4--Kansas City, MO--Uptown Theater
Oct. 6 & 7--Denver, CO--The Fillmore
Oct. 13--Seattle, WA--Paramount Theatre
Oct. 19--Madison, WI--Orpheum
Oct. 20--Minneapolis, MN--Epic
Oct. 23--Chicago, IL--Congress Theater
Oct. 25--Ypsilanti, MI--Convocation Center
Oct. 28--New York, NY--Roseland Ballroom

Normally I'd go but 70$ to see Skrillex and Deadmau5 at Roseland is exorbitant, that's the price I paid per day of Electric Zoo...

Ah, I hadn't heard anything about that. Now that I check ticketmaster, this is what it says:
"Support: AFROJACK BUSTA RHYMES CALVIN HARRIS (dj set) DIE ANTWOORD EROL ALKAN JDH & DAVE P KASKADE Q-Tip PETE TONG SLEEPY & BOO VIP ticket includes side stage access, and private cash bar"

Who knows, that sounds much more appropriate for the price range than what I previously thought; could be a good time.

Also, is anyone going to Webster Hall on Friday to see Crookers/Jack Beats?

Last time I was there for the Beetroots back in October the crowd was pretty lovely but Crookers were great the last time I saw them, so I am torn.

I am considering braving Webster one more time before I confirm that I am actually to old to set foot in that place.

I've always enjoyed it and I'm probably going but I'm nowhere near too old to set foot in there, fwiw. Next week is what I'm more excited for, even if Felguk and Huoratron are somewhat incongruous to book together.

It's funny because deadmau5 has said essentially the same thing about Threatis and djs in general, probably where the majority of the animosity on Threatis's part stems from:

quote:

“It puts me to loving sleep to be quite honest, I don’t really see the technical merit in playing two songs at the same speed together and it bores me to loving tears and hopefully with all due respect to the dj type that will loving go the way of the dinosaur id like them to dis-a-loving-pear.Its so middle man,they’re like loving lawyers. You need them, but they’re loving ****s. God bless them they’re my number one customer right so I’m not gonna go diss every loving DJ. But to say you become this massive up on a podium performer by playing other peoples productions at the same speed as someone else’s productions and fading between the two of them, I don’t get it.” -Joel Zimmerman

Just some fun facts for any sneaker heads or hip-hop fans. Tonight Pretty lights was wearing a hat with an A on it from St. Alfred's in Chicago, and he paid homage to Eyedea by dedicating one of his songs. Fun concert. Although Switch didn't show up for Major Lazer; I wonder if the blizzard messed up his travel.

Switch hasn't shown up to very many shows recently, Diplo did it by himself at Electric Zoo too.
