What part of Deadmau5’s set is live other than the fact there is a living person under the mouse head turning the knobs?

electronic music has no place in the scene and its a shame that jam music has headed that direction ever since Soundcheck Section 4 infiltrated the scene with their 100 cover bands some 13 or 14 years ago….. anybody can jam on two notes and four beats for a whole fucking concert….. thank ecstasy for giving these hosers credit for being halfway descent musicians…...... and not to mention, the worst part about it: “success”

Aviici once jammed levels for 25 mins. Ultra is boss.

Ultra what? January 13, 2013, 14:51:13

Agreed comletely. A Dj literally presses play on a mix and sits there and twists a few knobs. The live set is supposed to be where they are actually “programming” live using drum machines and synthesizers to alter their “music”. Often with a custom projection show or laser show. The only one of these I ever enjoyed was the Crystal method. Other than that electronic music blows and it is sad where it is going nowadays. I remember Jungle music, mix between house and hip hop, as badass, but dubstep, really?
