    Default Unimpressed...

    Went to the avalon last night and saw zedd and le castlevania...

    I was unimpressed with their sound...It sounded like one big ass record after another...too many big ass hands in the air breakdowns...not enough driving the crowd and whipping them into a frenzy...

    A good example of guys that producers first...being djs a distant second...

    Yeah mate, I see this all too often.
    The thing is, people don't go to see dj's anymore, they go to see producers. Big names bring the heads in.
    Producers spend all day making tracks, not learning how to blend, and rightly so.

    It is a sad state of affairs when the local dj opening the night is better than the headliner, but that's life.

    I like Le Castlevania, but the last time I saw him play at SXSW, there were people moshing in the crowd. I was just like, "the... fuck?"

    who the F... doesn't like him?! lol
    yeah this whole producer/dj thing has always been a problem.. unless you're Richie Hawtin :P

    but yeah few producers can put on great shows as djs bc their time is spent elsewhere.

    Agreed... Saw Zedd and Porter Robinson play the opening 2 (of 10) hours one of the nights of EDC and it was banger after banger. Not exactly the best way to warm up, but they're obviously gonna play their own tracks and they only make bangers. Was fun, anyways.

    On the other hand I've seen guys like Laidback Luke who are amazing in the studio and let their creativity shine even more on the decks.

    avalon blows ... i have seen some good acts at vanguard, but most of the legit acts ive seen were underground or legit intimate lounges and whatnot.

    I believe that A-Trak can pull the Producer/DJ role very well! I think its because he DJs more than he produces, but just about everything me makes is a hit!
