We are not sure how to really describe the scene last night at Webster Hall. To say it was a rage fest is an understatement. The opening set came from Huoratron and he set the tempo with head banging hard electro from the start. We haven’t seen a DJ get that into his set since Markus Schulz at Electric Zoo. There was jumping, head banging, running, fist pumping… you name it, he was doing it and to a greater extent than the crowd. Hailing all the way from Finland, Huoratron laid the perfect groundwork for the awesome sets of music to come from Felguk and Skrillex. To continue reading click read more!
The buzzworthy Felguk came up right after at 1:30AM and absolutely dominated. The Brazilian duo pumped out hit songs like ‘Side by Side’, ‘Club Can’t Handle Me’ (Felguk Remix), and ‘Exceeder (Felguk Remix)’. They also threw out some crowd-pleasing electro bangerz like Bassment Jaxx ‘Where’s Your Head At‘ (Klaas Remix) and Dave Darells ‘Flash 2.9‘. Their DJ set was absolutely flawless and freaking awesome. Using 2 CDJ’s and a pioneer mixer, they kept it simple and sounded fantastic. The technical aspect of their set was not particularly impressive, but their song selection was killer and they did a fantastic job of amping up the crowd in anticipation of the legend that is Skrillex. Their sound is certainly unique and people were definitely appreciative of that at Webster Hall, but definitley more appreciative of the next man that was about to take the stage.

Felguk played their track ‘2 Nite‘ for about 10 minutes while Skrillex set up. They just kept looping the track and the drop got sweeter every time.Â After Skrillex finally got his equipment set up (we think he uses Ableton Live and an M-Audio Trigger Finger, don’t quote us), he started off the set with an epic Terminator 2: Judgement Day theme and then seamlessly mixed in his classic, ‘My Name is Skrillex.’ He was playing the crowd from the start, and everyone was loving it. He actually got so into it at one point that he jumped from the DJ table at Webster Hall and actually knocked us all down. We couldn’t have cared less.Â The only other DJ that we have seen crowd surf was Steve Aoki. There was so much energy in that room and honestly everybody in the venue was dancing. Over the course of his epic set, which started at 2:30 AM at ended at roughly 3:45 AM, he dropped other electro and dubstep monsters such as ‘Kill Everybody’, “With Your Friends’, ‘Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites’, ‘All I Ask of You’, and his remix of Lady Gaga’s ‘Alejandro‘. He also pulled out some dubstep tricks from his sleeve at the end of the show, and dropped some new and unreleased material that made the place completely erupt with electro rapture. His dubstep and electro sound was remarkably hard…so hard in fact that the entire floor at Webster Hall was bending and wobbling.

What a sick show. All of our ears are still ringing from the obnoxious womps and drops, and we love it.
