We’re still recovering from this year’s Electric Forest festival in Rothbury, MI last weekend. Check out some bootleg audience recordings.
One of my favorite performances was Conspirator featuring Darren Shearer of the now defunct New Deal. Their live improvisations included both 4-to-the-floor and dubstep.

Shpongle and the Shpongletron presented their otherworldly soundscapes late-night Friday.

Lotus’s set was cut short due to a rain delay the first night, but was high energy and on point. Their synths have been getting more complex and hard hitting and their live trance has come to rival The Disco Biscuits.

Skrillex pulled out all of the garguantuan drops, but was criticized for soliciting too many sing-alongs and questionable transitions.

Dj Tiesto’s crescendo featured the up-and-coming Alesso of Sweden.
