Weekend 1 was an absolute stunner and The Sherp compiled 5 of the most enthralling sets from Coachella you need to plug into NOW!
Quite clearly, Calvin Harris stole the Coachella limelight by drawing in the second largest crowd in the festival’s history. Apart from the sheer number of people that showed up, there was some immensely brilliant music on display in California this past weekend.
Here are a the Sherp’s top 5 picks:
This boy is just class. Electro has an innate sense of extraordinary energy to it, but this German simply raises the bar. A talented musician and an absolute people’s person – he’s an expert at sensing the energy in the crowd and never fails to take his sets a notch above. He opens his set with his grammy winning single ‘Clarity’ but what follows next is absolute mayhem.
Hip hop will simply never die. This statement is further attested by Floss as he shells out a series of some sick trap music. He gives his set perfect balance with some up tempo 128bpm inputs as well. Super stuff.
This legend needs no introduction. Having played at almost every dance music festival existing in today, the veteran simply has it all. His experience at mesmerizing crowds is unmatchable. Just enjoy yourselves here.
So much groove, listening to this won’t be enough. You’ve got to be there. The Brits are extraordinarily talented musicians.
Dark Side (Nicolas Jaar + Dave Harrington)
Playing as Dark Side, they create a fantastic vibe characterized by two words – comfort & groove. Simple music, dished out expertly. Nico is renowned for his characteristically smooth sounds and his partnership with Dave Harrington creates magic in California.
Coachella had some incredible talent on display and the genre boundary was fantastically torn down at this super festival in California. Don’t forget to tune into weekend 2 of Coachella between April 18 – 20. This time around, the stream will be available on the ASX TV Website.
