Ten Best DJ Booths in EDM: From DJ Shadow to Skrillex, Avicii, and Daft Punk



8. Justice
When it comes to dance music, Frenchies pretty much do everything better. Justice rule the world of gritty filter house, and their stage set up reflects their metal roots. More Marshall amps than you've ever seen create a wall, with the epic center-piece of their glowing, signature cross. And with the addition of their second album, they added illuminated organ pipes and at one point in the show, Gaspard Auge (the one with the mustache) comes out and plays on a hidden keyboard. It's fucking sick.



7. DJ Shadow
Not only is he one of the illest mixers there is and an incredible turntablist, but he plays inside some kind of space-egg. It flashes all over with lights and images projected so as to seem like the orb itself is alive and spinning around. Sure, you can't really see him, but what is there to see anyway? Just some guy working his damn ass off. We appreciate the effort and the visuals.

The one thing all of these musicians (yes I said musicians) have in common is one thing.  They each used their money to build big fucking WALLS to perform BEHIND.  Nine Inch Nails were using the same technology in 2001/5/6/7/8 but performed INSIDE or in FRONT of the big blinkey walls.

 

Jeff Mills, one of the most superlative people to ever grace dance music, pushes his rigs father forward as a form of exhibitionism; showing people what he does while refusing to hide behind a glittery wall.  (re; one man space ship,

 

Impressive visual designs, impressive lighting, all of it is impressive.  Though maybe musicians who dislike being dismissed as "just DJs when we are playing all our shit live" or "pfft they;re all just pressing play anyway...just like my rig-mau5" should stop leaning so heavy on "the wall" and step forward...claiming their craft; not necessarily as NIN-like rockstars, but as technicians who won't hide what they do and refuse to needlessly elevate themselves in an ejaculation of money and glitter.
