PS. What I heard Tiesto came to Opulent Temple guys and asked them if he could play there :) That's why I went there to check it out. Skipped Lee Combs and Oakenfold as well :)

IMHO this year, besides breaks (I love to spin it), which I hate right know (breakz = nu trance on the playa?:) there was more interesting music - more downtempo, ambient, psyambient, traditional and modern electronic indian music, etc.

I'm not a uplifting trance fan anymore :) Listened to his set for about an hour and it was more than OK - hard pumping trance with only 2 cheesy vocal tracks - it was only time I danced during the whole week :) Weird :)

I could play you guys a trance set you'd dig. In fact, I'll make two trance cd's - been thinking about it anyway - and send them to those who poo-poo trance and we'll see what your honest opinions are...

IMO, Tiesto's production is GREAT but his tracks and his sets have too many breakdowns...It's possible to blow the roof off with a trance set. It just has to be done right.

You all sound like a bunch of ungrateful babies. What makes you people happy? All those djs cost money to bring out there and the costs are incurred by the camp they play at. They are not doing it to market their businesses..


Yeah, Freeland was out there.. I took those shots above when we met him on an art car. So was Lee Coombs, Tiesto, Oakie, Freq Nasty, Scumfrog... etc.

Quit bitching and enjoy what you have out there.

Gee, thanks for that tone.

I am not force fed my artistic taste by someone else or thier camp. I am not a supporter of commercially large artists at burningman. I prefer to support independant artists who equally share thier talent and creations without commerce.

Its my choice, there is nothing to be grateful for

.

And eveyone has complete freedom to express thier opinions on the matter, we just prefer they stay civil about it. Get it?

musical tastes vary

Postby Layne » Thu Sep 15, 2005 2:21 pm

musical tastes vary...I talked to Tiesto before my set at Opulent and he is a really down to earth guy. he didn't want anyone to even know he was there and wasn't really even sure if he was going to play.

I worked my ass off to get as many dj's playing at the Deep End of varied types of music, that I still thought would flow with the theme of our camp.
Day time fun in the sun! Hope some of you stopped by to have a drink and a groove. :D

i'm having some difficulty trying to reconcile this statement with the fact that i walked by opulent temple and saw tiesto's name very visibly advertised on their display of daily performers. i actually thought the tiesto set might have been a fun playa rumor until i saw opulent's lineups posted.

re: the deep end - that place had some good music. i remember at one point i was hanging out in my tent as my gf was getting some much needed rest. i started hearing some rather sweet beats, so i left to go investigate as she napped. as it turns out, the sound was coming from the deep end, so i chilled, had a smoke, took in the great vibe, and danced a while. then i headed back to my tent to check on my girl. as i was lying down, i heard an announcement: "ladies and gentlemen, give it up for scumfrog!" so yeah, i had unknowingly been rocking out to scumfrog.

that is how i like to enjoy "superstar DJs" on the playa - by chance. not by schedule, and not by advertising.

Well I still think there is definently not enough Jungle / Drum N Bass on the Playa, so you can be assured The Bush will be back next year even bigger and better. :P~

Hey Fat Sam-
I heart trance but have trouble finding stuff I like the past few years. I would love a few cd's of bombass trance. Contact me if you can hook me up.

Also, Freq Nasty was out there? Where? I love that guy. His sets are always great. I caught him in 04 and was disappointed not to find him this year. Where was he? He spins cd's but he just brings a great presence and energy to his sets. He's enjoying what he does. He doesn't act like he's going to walk on water every time he successfully mixes two tracks. He doesn't seem to want to be worshipped.

Yea, Scumfrog to shit apart at the Deep End !! As well, his set the night before. He's one of my playa favorite dj's !! He's a great guy...super nice and his sets are fantastic !! I'm looking forward to seeing him again next year on the playa.

i think bm is big enough to where if you don't like techno or raves or superstar djs (which btw, only dj keoki has rights the name superstar dj), you can run off and do something else, it's that simple.

my first bm was 2000, and i'm a midwest raver to the heart, but i have always hated the techno at bm cause i'm a drum n bass slash electro slash acid techno type of girl and bm is all cheesy trance, so i simply ignore and run through mazes, and meet as many random weirdos as i can.

really, what's the point of bitching?

yesh, paul dorkenfold sucks, but if people are getting down, let them get down, and get down however it is you get down.

it makes me happy that tiesto and oakenfold played there because i can say i was there and didn't go!

i spent most of my dancing hours out at technoasis! i loved that place! psy night??!? ARGH. i dragged my neighbours out ("what's psy???" ..."it's like trance, only not, and way better!") and they stayed all night! it was great. i was kinda sad there wasn't more people there, but it also was nice to be able to dance without ten zillion rave junkies there.... :twisted:

His set Sunday sunrise was worth all the money and the long ass plane flight out there. DOPE and well, just straight nasty. I havent been the same since.

WTF ever about okenfold.

The last little bit of Tiesto's set I caught was OK. Didn't blow me away, I've got peeps here that run a crowd better. But MAD respect to him for being there the whole week. My friends at Opulent said he really had a blast and was very respectful. Shame I missed Lee Coombs. His production is unreal, wonder how his set went...

I'm all for the small discovery sound systems out in the 'burbs. Heard some GREAT sets out there this year. Played some fun sets out in the smaller camps last few years. This year, as was said before, had some fantastic music! More variety?! YAY!!!
