DJing is one of the most spectacular privileges. having a few thousand watts of sound at your disposal at a burning man event is even better. what a good time. frankly, PDF wasn't as overall beautiful as wickerman was, but great music and great people. i really love my party liberation front people and we combined camps with the philadelphia experiment people, who were quite cool, too... and plf's covered wagon dj booth (which you can see part of the inside of above) is totally, unstoppably awesome.
i spun tons of dubstep, ghettotech, grime, dancehall, tabla music, etc... some of the big hits of my sets are here:
this track crushed my dubstep finale:
(mp3)emalkay - "overflow" from boka records
this track was perfect sunshine music:
(mp3)zakir hussain - "lineage" from "zakir hussain and the rhythm experience"
this was another hot sunshine track, though i played just the part of it in dj c's mix: (mp3)m.i.a. - "paper planes (rock city obama version)" from mashit.com's awesome collection of "paper planes" remixes
and i'm embarassed to admit gucci mane's "pillz" was probably the biggest hit... but most of my pulls were a lot less offensive.
