The last bit is nice.. the idea of a live "retro" set sounds really good for some reason
Saw him last weekend play alongside Nick Warren...spot on.. fun party .. can't wait for 026
She brought back the full schedule booklet thing (lots of interesting stuff in there) and on one of the pages they had scheduled an interesting "dj battle"
lol.. I guess they do some sort of prank/joke every year
here are a few more pages, I like the uk rave
this is the embrace and they placed right in front of the rising sun
and then its all gone
cool DJ booth, and the sounds systems were pretty good for the most part.. all in all for it not being a "music festival" they are very well prepared
you could talk to God
a few mutants
one of the "streets"
and a few vids
I think this is Guy Gerber but not sure
some cool visuals
the playa at night,, it looks like a big carnival
man goes up in flames
and this is at one of the stages.. u climb in and peeps spin it around
^ nah.. there is no cell service out there so I have no idea what's going on.

She's going to be drug addled in a free love fuckfest. Not to say she won't remain faithful mind you but she will be surrounded by penises with enough upward mobility to afford the trip away. Come to think of it, the outlook is pretty grim. Thoughts and prayers.
I would say that's a realistic summary.. a lot of Silicon Valley's finest are attending, I am just trying to pretend that the generalization of them all being nerds is 100% true.
Some of my friends are being very supportive.. one send me the horoscope for her sign today which said "opportunity for a new romance is very likely"
Diggers tweeted that he came to one of his parties in Ibiza... I wonder if he learned anything
^ like most such occasions it all kind of depends on your company, mind set, and overall willingness to look past the obnoxious. It seems like there is enough diversity in terms of entertainment, art, music, etc. to provide a chance to enjoy yourself. The location itself is very unique.. the desert at night, zero light pollution.. that sky at night must be simply mesmerizing.. good music.. shiny lights.. the whole gifting/barter concept..
It sound good to me but I've never been so I really have no idea.. your friend has a more realistic perspective for sure
I've seen him twice in Miami during WMC and it wasn't really memorable.. of course it didn't help that I was at Digweed's parties the next day which were on a different level.. It could also be just me not being into his sound..
It seems like he is pretty popular amongst the younger crowd these days.

Deadhead, I've been here and this will only spell trouble.
Nonetheless, fair play on putting up a brave face and helping her out on this trip.
I am not going to worry about it until she gets back, but yeah.. its going to be tricky

Cool! Love the spooky sounds..
The cover art is very well done!
ya, they are stuck in Reno for the night I think..
so all in all, driving from San Francisco, its going to cost her ~$1600 for 7 days with an RV (4 people split) including ticket ($380) petrol, food, alcohol, and party favors..
Me thinks that's a pretty good deal considering the amount of entertainment at that place. .. 70,000 attending this year.. that's just silly
you get better software with the xbox and better hardware with the PS4 ... you can be sure that Microsoft will keep on adding and bringing new stuff to their software platform in general, so over time the xbox has the potential to grow more, if that makes sense..
I would go with the xbox, but if you care about graphics on a "per pixel" level then go with the PS4
This "crew" is going to be there as well..
I dunno... that can't be good for the gathering in general. I see skrilex is playing a really long set this time
Its supposed to be fucking nuts and bravo for letting your missis attend a sex fest without man in tow.
.. right.. two girls and 6 guys (I know non of them) in two lovely RVs high/drunk for 7 days in the desert... what can possible go wrong ?
Its supposed to be an incredible experience, so I don't won't to take that away from her because I can't afford to go right now.. she is a big girl, and she won't lie to me so.. I guess I will find out where we stand when she gets back.
We went to see John at the Vagabond earlier this year so I got my fix, but.. I have to admit those ~6hr sets from seth and burridge sound amazing...
Props for the sensationally naive idea that sepo's would know how to take Weatherall if he pitched up in a tweed suit and a crate full of Romanian breakbeat, but it would be fun watching the response nonetheless.
hahha ... you don't think it would fly ? I though that's the whole point of the desert party
I was wondering if John or anyone else representing the label has ever played out there ? My gf is going and I was looking at the schedule trying to pick a few parties for her, and it made me think about it.
Here it is: https://db.tt/sI8SL7uN
I circled a few things for her, if anyone sees anything else please share There is a guy named "Johnny Diggz" by the way..
Plenty of good music ..
also Hernan and Nick are going to be there as well
I also think Andy Weatherall would be a good fit for there..
the drinking law in California holds it back, otherwise.. special place indeed. In terms of music tho.. i would take London, NYC, or Berlin any day
any good drops?
hah..i promise i wasn't trying to time them
I felt like the first two hours of the set were a bit shaky, but he found the groove around 3 AM and it was spot on until the end around 4:30 .. good times : ))
^ love this
Going with some friends tonight.. hoping to hear more of this
will post a few pics/vids later
sound system is decent and the crowd is usually up to the task : )
I really wish I can catch him on a good night like that.. Every time he comes to San Francisco the sets are usually short and the sound system at the venue he plays at is awful. His Miami gig/appearance : ) (not the boat party) this year wasn't very memorable..
Its surprising but the best set I've heard from him was at EDC in vegas a few years ago..
After seeing Sasha for the umteenth time last Sunday I've come to the conclusion that he's crowd reactive. If the crowd is up for it from the get-go, then he'll put on a special performance.
Looking back all the bad Sasha shows of been to have generally had a bad crowd.
That's probably the case for a lot of DJs out there.. even from Sasha's caliber. Its hard to play a good set to a mushy crowd... its energy exchange and if the flow towards the dj booth sucks its no bueno.
Bill Burr's one hour special from 2012 is very good
I rather like Sean Lock, My Mrs says i am just like him....except he's funny
He is very good.. I watch 8 of 10 cats every once in a while just to hear some of his new stuff
I thought we could share stand up or any other type of comedy we like here...
Forums are few and far between, but those that perceiver are of great value compared to the smash and grab nature of social media these days. The original social networks if you will.
Never thought of it that way but yeah.. they are the original social networks along with mIRC I guess.. frankly, I prefer both to the current "modern" stuff.. except maybe reddit, but I can't really find anything good on there in terms of music
this is a complete mess
maybe we can collectively "fix" it lol
the techno sub is pretty dead
