Have given up on ADID... dull and pretentious imo.
Agreed. Floating, noodling, Burning Man nonsense. Burning Man turns everyone into a cunt. Hopefully Lee can step away before it's too late.
..that's either really lame trolling, or you genuinely have no fucking clue what you are on about. Have heard some very varied and rather excellent sets from Burning Man, most recently the Hoj one (who I'd never heard of before) which is chunky and bass-heavy, very different to this in style.
Regarding ADID/Burridge, some of the individual tracks are really well-made, there are always a couple of standout moments. As I said, thought the Emix from last year was really good, and I've enjoyed the Robot Heart sets from previous years, but there's a definite 'tippy-tappy' style evolving here which is a bit lacking IMO
Being based in the Bay Area, we get beaten over the head with all things Burning Man. And recent years has seen the ADID sound becoming the de facto "genre" of choice for the Burner-types - ADID events here have basically become Burning Man light. I personally cannot stand what Burning Man has become and I cannot stand the types who attend it these days; whether it be tech bros looking to network, the Silicon Valley elites with their private camps and personal chefs, or the Europeans treating it like techno tourism. I used to love Burridge's taste in music but now it just feels too closely tied to something I strongly dislike. The sound is just too "ahhh yes remember the sun setting over the Playa?" for me. No edge. No funkiness. Just floaty "I'm soooo mellow" nonsense. Not that I'm jaded or anything...
I am still shocked that people attempt camping at Coachella. This Monday it's supposed to top out at 121 F / 49 C. And while the festival isn't in the middle of June, my experiences down there weren't too far from what Monday is shaking up to be. Camping in such conditions is utterly harebrained.
only time i got to see fortier live was in philly. philly shows are really hit or miss, but he played an outstanding set. i think it was like 06? anyway, he played a few nigal richards 12's which was really cool; he is a legend in the tiny philly scene. this was a highlight of the night b/c every wanna-be philly dj had bought this record at some point.
last i heard from fortier he was playing retro sounding house records.
Terry Mullan used to smash that track to pieces. Damn good DJ he was.
Not sure where Cusick gets off on calling out the "stupidity" of others. Those old Xpander articles were a load of run-on, rambling claptrap.
[EDIT] He's apparently now in the SF Bay Area. As if we need more horrific NYC transplants around here, as they piss and moan about fucking pizza of all things, ruining what was once a great place to grow up and live.
Good mix this. I'm well over the low tempo German emo prog these two have often played (and I have been for some time) but there's some nice variety here, especially towards the middle of the mix to the end.
As I'm sure has been said plenty of times on here, I'm not sure if Avery did it or not, but it's obvious the old bill in Wisconsin are guilty of being a collection of complete mongoloids. If Avery actually did do it, they went full OJ and tried way too hard to frame a guilty person. The nephew on the other hand...jesus wept did they railroad that poor, simple bastard.
