LIVE

live at forest of visions – paris, france – 2010-05-30

i was lucky enough to play my first european gig in paris at a massive rainforest benefit show at a convention center downtown. there were three rooms of goodness, and i was asked to play sets with a slightly different feel in both, which was a nice challenge :)

the first set was at midnight on the ‘chill’ stage and i was asked to play something more dubby – i ended up getting a little crunchier than i’d planned on but that seemed to be what the crowd wanted so i decided to oblige! things got a little hairy at the end when i think i played longer than i was supposed to due to a miscommunication with the sound crew about the setup for the next act, but nobody seemed terribly put out.

the second set was at 11am on the ‘alternative’ stage, and i was still a bit groggy from taking a nap backstage when i went on. i was playing after a progressive trance act and before somebody who said they planned on starting with hard dubstep and progressing into dnb, and i think i did a pretty decent job of bridging the gap. i was very surprised by the size & energy level of the crowd for this one, and really enjoyed having a rocking dancefloor at that time in the morning!
