EDC 2012: House Music Beef With DJ Sneak Plays Out in Steve Angello's DJ Set
Swedish House Mafia's performance style -- playing only its own hits, remixes and edits -- seems to be a thing: Kaskade, David Guetta and other "DJs" do it because audiences expect it.
Anyway, it seemed to us that Mr. Steve was making a statement, playing tracks that sampled the phrases, "Tear the club up" and "Fuckin' haters."
At the end of his set, as he handed the decks over to New York progressive house legend Erick Morillo, Angello introduced him as "the guy who taught me how to DJ in clubs."
That's quite a teacher. You want authentic? I'll match your Puerto Rican DJ (Sneak) with one born in Colombia (Morillo).
Sneak, by the way, wasn't booked for EDC 2012.
