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



6. Shpongle
He's got a funny name, but there's nothing funny about this all-encompassing musical experience. Meet the Shpongletron, a huge three-level stage design that looks something akin to an eastern religious experience. It also has an eye that shoots lasers but features more fractals than your non-medicated mind has ever seen. We're not condoning drug use or anything, but if you were to smoke DMT at a music festival, this is the show to spark it up.



5. Datsik
The newest addition to our list is Canadian dubstepper Datsik who just announced his new vortex booth for his upcoming Firepower tour. Basically, the selector sits in the center of an ever-spiraling set of lights and a 50,000-watt P.A. That's a lot of fucking bass in your face. Not sure if the intended side-effect is hypnosis, but we think we like Datsik a whole lot more now.

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.
