Ten Best DJ Booths in EDM: From DJ Shadow to Skrillex, Avicii, and Daft Punk
2. Etienne De Crecy
But giant heads, spaceships and spinning vortexes are nothing compared to the cube. Back in 2008, French-house badass Etienne De Crecy unveiled his super sexy cube show, placing his squarely in the center of a six-square, Hollywood Squares-type three-dimensional rig. Again, bitmapping is the key here, and the light projections on the fabric screens create such a believable illusion, you wonder how he can get anything done in there.
1. Daft Punk
Look, all these other DJs are cute and everything with their little top-of-the-line rigs and whole-hearted attempts to differentiate themselves from the masses. But nothing, we repeat, nothing will ever top some shit a couple robots did in 2006-2007. You cannot fuck with the pyramid. There can be only one.
You've got two robots sitting in a giant pyramid of light, flanked by light grids, all in front of a giant screen of light, blasting the best dance music in the world, and at the end, they light up themselves. Pretty much the most mind blowing thing you can ever witness. The world had to wait ten years for their second tour in 2007, let's hope it doesn't take so long this third time around.
