Once again, I cannot get enough of the pool and water slide. I’ve become a total addict. It has become a morning ritual, in begin my day in this order: pool, water slide, shower, breakfast, and then spend time with PLUR fam. My first stop of the day was the Upside Down Room for old school DJ Craze, a blast from the past but dropping vinyl like a boss. Alan Fitzpatrick is the drumcode jedi. A set I definitely was at from start to finish.
Flosstradamus, the white suits and the lack of originality was enough to say I knew this was going to bad but why not. It’s never good to be right about how bad a set is. The History 101 was a room with a few old, but enlarged black light posters from the 90’s, a Pac Man big screen, a turnable setup and a Marty McFly’s DeLorean parked outside for the next wonderland adventure. I could not miss Ton!c aka Deorro, bring the panda funk to the San Manuel Amphitheater, tossing to up with his usual tracks and upbeat bass.
Adam Beyer, killing it, causing shufflers to go non-stop for two straight hours. Nicole Moudaber, the Queen of Techno, taking the crowd on a funtastic journey down the rabbit hole. Z-Trip, his second set of the weekend and put them all to shame with the best set of the day at Queen’s Grounds. I caught a glimpse of the old school mixer himself, DJ Jazzy Jeff, still holding down as a vinyl mastermind. Pretty Lights, that’s all I saw, was not much of a set…just lights, but they were beautiful. I did pass by Alesso but continued on my journey. Sam Paganini, threw it down like MJ dunks, hard and with accuracy. He was a phenomenal close to an amazing night.
