Went to SHM at Barclays monday night. The production value was phenomenal, lasers, lights, smoke cannons, pyrotechnics, the video boards. Seb and Axwell played drums at different points, which was pretty cool. The planning of the sound quality could have been a little better, the volume was perfect in the lower bowl and floor, but from what I understand in the upper bowl, it was about half as loud. Otherwise fun show. THis was a great show, but I'd have to say I had more fun at their first MSG show last year, that was insane.

Yup. Lights/lasers/smoke > sound.

That's why club gigs blow away stage shows and festivals. They are longer, they cost less, sound is better and you can actually dance with your entire body, not just your fists.

Unfortunately, I heard the set was the exact same every night too.. I guess this was more of a "performance" than a gig.

Especially on the main stages of festivals.. They'll typically play pretty mainstream stuff as well..

I would take a club gig over a festival gig any day, but I absolutely love the environment of a festival

Agree. The whole festival experience cannot be matched, but if I were to choose where to watch my favourite DJ play, it would be in a small to medium sized club with great soundsystem and a good crowd.

Considering that arena's have terrible acoustics and that house music has only been big enough to fill arenas since 2009 I'm going to go on a very limited limb and say you're full of crap.

How am I full of crap? It seems to me that today's acts are more concerned about all the sideshows instead of the music. It being in an arena is no excuse, I've been to arena gigs and the sound was just fine and it's not like huge electronic music events are something that just started in 2009. I guess when the music can't carry itself, they need to resort to tricks and theatrics to keep the audience happy. I blame the average EDM consumer who expect their favourite DJ and act to just play the hits like a jukebox. The attention-span of the music listener today can't handle a well-crafted and building set anymore, everything must come now and immediately and the sound quality can be crap as long as there are lasers and pyrotechnics.

Not really sure how I feel about Armin Van Buurren's new single


Vocals are good but seems like the music is just generic house thrown in

I am excited for his new album though

Dance music has been filling arena since the 90s though, it's not like these professional sound guys don't know what they're doing. I have no problem with the promoters going all out on production and lighting and all that, in fact I'll admit I'm a sucker for that stuff, but when they put 10x more effort into that than they do the actual sound, it sends the wrong message.

If I've learned anything, it's that you should never expect anything good from Armin unless he's working with another producer.

Some electro tracks that are quite different from the stuff that's been posted here. I actually consider it less of an electro set, more of a top-40 pop set stylistically speaking.

You're going to the wrong kind of festivals then. An intimate/small/low-key festival is amazing during the summer time.

Good to see someone posting techno. However, I find that tune a little boxed-in, a tad conservative for my tastes.

Never took the time to listen to the whole thing until now, but Group Therapy (Above & Beyond) is a great album to just chill out to.

Why do you say that? Festival gigs aren't bad, but they can't stand up to club gigs.

As I mentioned they are longer, cheaper, better sound etc.

I said I love the environment and everything else a festival brings.. Governor's Island in NYC during the summertime is one of my favorite places of all time..

We're talking about the set and sound quality
