I wasn't impressed at all with Deadmau5 but then I had just seen one of the best ever sets at Justice and there was no comparison

Saw the beginning of Justice... and no Deadmau5 - but, everyone after was raving about the light/projection/video show? Good no?

Fantastic light show but under-tempo.

Basically Pink Floyd rather than Hawkwind - surely no more cruel a commend could be made?

Thought yon Mau5 was a bit hit or miss but for the most part was pretty good. Jumping around to Strobe coupled with his amazing lights made me a happy bastard though :)

Can't say I was hugely impressed with what I saw of him, as has been said by others, Justice blew him out the water.

I've seen Deadmau5 3 times now and thought his Rockness set was poor. Barrowlands was the best. His helmet is cool though. I like the cat face with the eyes getting bigger and smaller lol.

I seen him in Edinburgh 6 years ago at the liquid rooms, have to say...I enjoyed that more. Mostly the same tracks,give or take a few. Perhaps it was because he was less known back then, things were a lot more intimate and all that!

Tbh I get what he means when he talks about the big live shows and the production, but its his attitude that gets to me. Pressing play might be what he does but I'm sure its not true of everyone. He seams to think he is the defenition of dance music.

Far better read on the reality of new shows. read this a while ago, explains fatboys issues and getting pressured into keeping up with the show.

.. (see Move Any Mountain)...

what you mean is 'Progen'. That's what it's called.

It's only called 'Move Any Mountain' on the radio when played at kids who don't like dance music.

well, sort of, I think it was originally released as 'Progen' in hmm, 1990?, but re-released as 'Move any Mountain' a year or so later

My copy of Progen says 1990, so good guess. :)

I said "It's only called 'Move Any Mountain' on the radio when played at kids who don't like dance music", because anyone who liked dance music back then would have surely heard it before it was retitled "move any mountain" and played loads on the radio.

and it was the beginning of the end for the Shamen, I think. I loved 'In Gorbachev we trust' and all of that. Saw them in 89-90 somewhere in Canterbury and they were fucking ace. This is all before Mr C (and I think we all know what the 'C' stands for) started shitting all over the music.

nah, the end of The Shamen was one of them dying in a swimming accident or something.

Yeah, fair point. Will Sin, on a video shoot, maybe for even 'move any mountain / progen / whatever'
