Ultra Music Festival 2011 Live Sets

Alas, I was unable to make it out to Miami for this years Ultra Music Festival. Regret. If all the facebook statuses and mobile uploads weren’t enough to make me pull my hair out, I’m gonna have to here about it from my buddies Naweed and Metalectric. Let me get this out of the way real quick. To everyone that went, I’d like to flip you all the bird and say I HATE/ENVY YOU. Ok, now on to the music. Pretty much every DJ you can name off the top of your head was in Miami last week throwing down nasty amounts of bass and new unheard tracks, all with a beachfront view. Rave + South Beach bikinis… gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. Anywho, all the sets were recorded (thank the rave gods) for our listening pleasure. You can find them all right HERE. But to start you all off, here are some I thought you might be interested in. See you next year Miami.

    I still have yet to be impressed with any Mau5 set I’ve ever listened to, whether it be live or through headphones. Kaskade thoroughly underwhelmed me at Coachella 2010 and I’ve yet to forgive him. This ULTRA set is shwatever to me also. Both big brand names that IMO don’t do all that well live.

    the Moby set is absolutely slaying me right now though. The man is GENIUS.

    gonna get around to the last half sometime this weekend.

      agree with you on kaskade and deadmau5.. dedmau5 needs to broaden the spectrum a little bit. im sick of hearing the saaame songs over and over at every show. i know its against his whole”im a producer not a d.j.” persona, but eventually its gonna hurt him in the long run. I was at Ultra and a lot of people were pissed about his set. Moby, Avicii, Afrojack, and Tiesto were absolutely amazing. Moby came out of nowhere with that one.

      Should definitely be some interesting stuff happening with deadmau5 very soon. Go on youtube and type in professional griefers and watch his live video.

    Kaskade’s set is amazing.
    Laidback Luke’s is real whatever.
    Avicii is groovy as hell.

    My guess is that most the people that didnt like the deadmau5 set didn’t listen to the whole thing. Here are the last four tracks of his set

    Deadmau5 – Maths
    Deadmau5 – Sometimes Things Get, Whatever
    Deadmau5 & Kaskade – I Remember
    Deadmau5 – HR 8938 Cephei

      yeah… the same old songs he plays at every show.. I was at Ultra and the beggining was awesome he played all of his new stuff, the end was what sucked. In 2010 he put way more effort into his set. this year it was like he just went out there like whatever.

    As someone that was on his 3rd Ultra, and have seen Deadmau5 at least 8 times already, I think his set absolutely sucked. It was almost identical to his set last year. Barely anything new. Look, if you play the Reward is Cheese on huge speakers, I will dance to it, always. But I don’t go to an Ultra mainstage closing set to hear the same music that has been out for ages, and which he played last year and at all his other sets. I go for something special. He had nothing special. As a long time Deadmau5 fan, hell I was one of the first people who made a helmet way back in 2008, I was thoroughly disappointed. He didn’t bring his A-Game, he just brought the regular stuff, which is good, but perhaps I’m just not impressed by the same stuff anymore. I’m sure people who saw him for the first time thought must have loved it.

    Why I like deamau5 and his ultra set

    The first time i saw Deadmau5 i almost shit myself. Deadmau5 at EDC was whatevers. He wasnt that great. But this set i really like because he played a lot of 4×4=12. Slowly, I have learned to appreciate his style of play better and better.

    First of all, he only plays his own music. That is UNHEARD of in the DJ game these days. Can you imagine Afrojack or Luke or Wolfgang playing JUST there music. Won’t happen. Why? cus none of them have any albums. Deadmau5 has numerous. When you go to see Deadmau5, you are literally going to see deadmu5 the Artist. Not deamau5 the dj that is going to play other peoples music. Yes he plays his older songs, so what. I can bare to here ghost n stuff one more time. At least he’s not playing Show Me Love or One or The Island.

    Secondly, his style of play is completely different than what anyone is doing. Everyone likes to do the basic start soft and get louder and build with white noise as the synths or whatever get louder, then the beat drops. Deamau5 does it completely in reverse. The beats hits and then, slowly and methodically, comes to a stop… then the beat hits again. the distinction between the slow down and the drop imo, creates such a better effect.

    Thirdly, his level of production is unmatched. period. Coupled with his mixing skills, his transitions are seamless. Deadmau5 doesn’t do the “lets loop the vocals and turn the bass off and then 4,2,1,1/2 to the buzz.” He straight mixes his songs perfectly.

    Fourthly, the deamau5 “vibe” if you will, is constant throughout the set. When other djs play whatever tracks are hot, there sets can be all over the place. The feel of the set differs too much imo, because the tracks have all different vibes. Not to say Deamua5 sets are monotonous, but they are constant. His sets have ups and downs, fast and slow as well as other variations, but it stays within the deadmau5 vibe, which to me is dark and heavy, yet playful at the same time.

    Five, not to many people have the balls to play deadmau5 tracks. and for good reason.

    my 2 cents

        You’ve got to be KIDDING me. Can you read? Apparently not. He said that nobody wants those artists to play a set of JUST their music.

        Hater’s gonna hate, the mau5 is going to keep doing what he wants so fuck them.

      And deadmau5 music is considered progressive which is exactly what u described above. if you like that kind of music then search for more progressive its a subgenre of electronic music. read a fckin book u idiot

        progressive is an adjective that can be used to describe anything in which some kind of progress is achieved…as a “genre” it’s vague at best

    In my Humble opinion, as long as said DJ or Producer is having a good time doing his thing, then the show was a success. That’s the point really isn’t it? The reason they do what they do? As long as they aren’t just in it for the money, they should be in the business because the love what they do. So if it doesn’t sound so great to you or this time wasn’t as good as last time, then oh well don’t listen to it. There were plenty of people that had fun, enjoyed the music and partied hard. And hopefully the musicians where among those people.

    didn’t anybody see the fucking chemical brothers? easily the best set PLAYED that weekend. and i say played because THEY PLAY IT ALL FUCKING LIVE! and ill say it again, it was hand down the best set of the weekend. jesus christ. oh and to all the deadmau5 fans they play all their own music because its all the best, not because they’re pretentious douche bags.

  21. […] 2. Ultra Music Festival – Miami – This iconic festival, which takes place on the edge of Biscayne Bay in Bicentennial Park in downtown Miami, is home to one of the longest running and fastest growing electronic music festivals in the US. While 2011 marked the first year the festival was held exclusive of the week-long Winter Music Conference, it proved to be a major success with one of the most incredible lineups and a completely sold out attendance of 150,000 people. Because of the exponential growth of the festival, the promoters responsible for it are being forced to move 2012′s event to an even bigger venue, which should mean even more fans and DJ’s turning up for the 3-day bonanza. Miami provides the perfect end-of-winter escape for those of us in cooler climates and Ultra couldn’t be more appropriate way to ring in spring. [Downloads on SoundLogik.com] […]
