Hard Haunted Mansion Recap

2 Nov

Harder Stage- Special guest: Miike Snow (DJ-set)So I kept telling myself that I wasn’t going to go to Hard this year, sadly, due to other priorities, but Sunday afternoon a friend convinced me to go. I definitely made a great decision despite the fact that I am writing this post severely deprived of sleep, but it was worth it. Anyway, I was only in attendance Sunday night but I know many people who went Saturday. The people I have talked to say the best sets were from Rusko and the Bloody Beetroots. Sunday night, my favorites were A-trak, the special guest, Miike Snow (DJ-set), and Boys Noize closing the Halloweekend all the way from Deutschland. This years production, at the inside stage and outside stage, was definitely an improvement on last years although they were lacking some necessities (LASERS!). The crowd in attendance were the typical L.A. party people creating a good festive vibe for the night. I’ve heard Saturday was an awesome time and Sunday definitely was as well, so I’d say it was a very successful Hard Haunted Mansion! As a recap, here are some songs you might have jumped around to, pumped your fist to, or even danced around to with movements foreign to many onlookers!

Flux Pavilion- Lines In Wax Ft. Foreign Beggars***Rusko opened up with this dub banger

Cassius- I Love You So (TROWA Remix)***Busy P dropped the original mix of this one, but I like this dubstep version better!

Boys Noize- Yeah*Heard multiple times Sunday night

The Chemical Brothers- Dissolve (Bloody Beetroots Remix)

Here’s a little clip of the madness just in case you missed it!

There are only 256 more hours until the light-filled, bass-heavy, kandi-flying spectacular that will be HARD Haunted Mansion 2010 finally begins!  In honor of this, here are a couple tracks by two artists that are guaranteed to make a bang this year.

First off is a new track from the UK dubstep duo Nero. True to the style in their other hit productions, “Me and You” brings the classic Nero blend of rock and up-tempo dubstep.

Nero- Me and You

Boys Noize is never one to let an audience down. His unique blend of nu-disco and electro house has the special ability to keep the crowd jammin’ for hours.  The Chemical Brothers released an album named Further earlier this summer, and Boys Noize has reinvented its hit single, “Swoon”, in a wonderfully funky and melodic way. This song is a must have!
