    We got there late and the place was already rammed.

    Kingdom was playing UK funky and dubstep in the main room when we got there, but we checked out Adultnapper until Skream & Benga went on. I didn't recognize most of what they played, but a definite mix of straight bangers and new interesting bass music. They played the obligatory La Roux remix which set the crowd off... Benga was on the mic repping the crowd for a while too.

    Diplo's not afraid to please the crowd and man was it wicked. Really refreshing after listening to so much serious dance music.

    He played some dubstep mixes/bootlegs of The Pixies, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, Chelly 'Took The Night'. Even dropped the original album version of MIA 'Paper Planes' and a few straight hip hop tracks

    The rest was an absolutely sweaty mix of dubstep, b-more and dancehall.

    After his set, Azari & III unfortunately dropped the gayest house song ever and 3/4 of the crowd left. I was diggin their energy, the live vocals and the old-school flavour but we didn't stick around to watch

    Missed a lot of the other acts as the event went to 5am but Diplo was worth $30 alone

    Ah-may-Zin, holy fuck, this summer has been ridiculous with the amount of incredible music we've had.

    Skream and Benga KILLED IT. Diplo kept the killin sound and kept the place bouncing. Sooooooo goooooooooood!
