Last night Infected Mushroom came to Santiago, Chile and kicked some serious ass. I didn't know what to expect. A simple DJ-set or a full-blown live act. But because the ticket prices were pretty high I was hoping to see some live instruments.
Ah oh boy, did I got those. They had the whole set. Drums, 2 guitars, keyboards, turntables, mics etc. The whole shizzle.
From the first stroke on the keyboard to the last spin on the turntables the audience was LOVING it. The dancefloor was full and the atmosphere was incredible. They really knew what they were doing and they rocked that stage. Never has electronic music sounded that good with live instruments. I am in awe. I would imagine myself fainting seeing pendulum pull off the same thing. Damn!
They played a couple of classics with some new tunes, a good mix I would say. They also did 2 encores and AFTER the live set there was a 45min-1hour DJ set too. Wow.
Excellent night to dance. I can't really feel my legs right now and the walk home was a reeeeaaal pain in the ass.
There were a lot of people from israel watching the show ( they were yelling stuff in hebrew ) and that gave IM a nice boost I would imagine. That little extra something!
On the downside the vocalist got a little pissed for people throwing water on the stage a couple of times. That's not cool.
To sum it up - dance, dance, dance.
Definitely a night to remember. Excellent gig.
