    Default Show Report: Excision.....How far can music get??

    So my buds dragged me to go see to go see this dubstep producer on Friday, his name is Excision.
    I'm sure some of you have heard of him. He guarantees 150,000 Watts or more at his shows.

    I really just wanted to see the opening acts....

    9:30 we get there, the opening act is "ill.gates". Wow i must say it was terrific!!! He was rocking some simple vestax dual deck controller, then triggering his drum racks with a midifighter 3d, and he also had a midifighter twister. Really sick setup, and he was playing SO much LIVE music.

    10:30 Next act was "Dirtyphonics" an electro house and bass duo, who was all about the crazyness. They were playing on the traditional 4 cdj's they're set was alot of fun, they were spining some pretty hard tunes, they had alot of stage presence and energy. Spraying us with water guns, jumping into the crowd, throwing cds and tshirts and stuff. Had alot of fun with these guys, and after they're set was done they came down into the crowd to party with us.

    12:00 Last was "Excision", i knew this was gonna be rough, but i had a rude awakening in store. The music was just more a collection of robot sounds and bass waves. I was in the very front row up against the barrier. Wow the crowd was really moshing and the sound was mindnumbing. Now i have been to sankeys ibiza, and that was loud (supposedly the loudest club in the world) but this was at least twice as loud. I heard reports from a friend who is a front of house guy at the venue, that at times they were pushing 145 to 155 DB. Which is just mental..... i felt the bass shaking my internal organs..... WTF I was 85% hearing loss on saturday and sunday. Its just coming back today.

    I feel like an old man, around all these young crazy ravers....

    Needless to say, im a guy who is most happy spinning some Michael Jackson in a hole in the wall club somewhere. haha

    I dont think I would ever go to a "dubstep show" ever again, it's just a rough breed of ravers there, that dont know how bad they're hurting themselves.

    Brostep is the death metal of electronic music. Its defiantly not for most.

    However I somehow doubt it was 145+ but whoever was the engineer was a complete Idiot for allowing anything near those kind of SPL's in the first place (and probably breaking a few state laws into the bargain).

    In my youth I never paid much heed to wearing earplugs despite spending 5 nights a week less than a foot away from the Main DJ Monitor. It wasn't till a certain Joey B. (who shall remain un-named) blew the bloody thing in my ear that I realized I'm not going to have hearing for much longer and started wearing plugs or even some tissue balls in a pinch to attenuate the sound (unless Im playing).

    Hope you recover your senses without any damage dude.

    Everyone else - Watch: "Its all gone Pete Tong"

    Theres enough deaf DJ's already (as is evident from the beatport top100)

    Brostep is the death metal of electronic music
    Just sounds like Fluffy, Emo, Girly, Slow D&B to me

    No I wouldn't doubt if it was really that loud, I shoot guns every week, and I know the feeling in my inner ear from an unprotected gunshot....(yes I do use plugs) and this show was like a 2 hour nonstop gunshot.
