Above and Beyond are the most hit and miss outfit in EDM. I saw them in Calgary in 2010 and they were amazing. Saw them again in Calgary in 2011 and then later that year at Electric Zoo and I was looking for stuff to throw at the stage.
Their laptop messages to the crowd were cute at the start, but when the quality of their sets/mixes/programming starts to suffer, it's time to dial things back on stage. They have an amazing radio show/podcast, but wish it was still called TATW.
I still listen to the 2004 Essential Mix that was posted earlier and long for those days. Hard to believe that was almost 10 years ago!!!
God help us if we get stuck with Paavo and Tony. Jono is the best dj by far.
Tiesto will kill it. He has the best live show in dance music today. Deadmau5 used to, but Tiesto's is just off the hook.
Really hoping Tommy Trash stays sober enough to play a decent set in Calgary for a change. He really stunk the joint out in December.
Haven't seen Wolfgang Gartner live yet and am hoping for big things from him.
Andrew Rayel has put out some good tunes lately, will be interesting to see what he plays.
Also looking really forward to hearing David Stone live.
Wish I'd win the lottery so I could put on a techno stage. Chris Leibing, Loco Dice, Marco Carola, Jorris Voorn etc....
