Do any of these guys have any real talent or are they just button pushers? All they do is playback samples the entire show. Boring !!!!

It is like the founders of the hair club for men decided to start a band.

I actually thought that they were pretty kool. 'Ain't nothing wrong with being a musician/artist (creative and flexible), with the tools that more the sounds and the lights 'go'. Imagine if decide to change up the content, '…a whole other thing….'

Nothing wrong with that. 'sounds like they're doing there thing..

Agreed. Button pushers. There all very talented but with NI pulling the trigger what do you expect. But yea, midi gear like that is getting to be boring and artificial. lets see a super band with some arp 2600's and linn drums. That would be something to see.

We need more artist/musicians doing similar things-with deeper programming synthesis and innovations, but on a public platform (like this venue, another festival, tv music vids….). This would certainly draw a better comparison, and EVEN further music creation/innovation. At least far better than us writing little comments 'Shame, Shaming" other bands, and us NOT producing and publicly displaying our music, to then be part of the debate, on a similar scale and platform.

All that said, 'jackofalltrades', yeah, this format can sometimes be equated to, 'easy listening' for the modern-day, early 21st century hipster-listener


I mean, sheeesssh, people don't even dance at these particular types of concerts anymore. However, I suppose that band isn't actually as interested in making artistic, innovative dance-music, as much as they are interested in making artistic electronic music

Just got finished watching another interview with them via future music . It breaks down there rolles person by person in great detail. I was however very impressed with there routing skills and what have you. Simple. But what sucked about it was that each one of them sounded like they were over justifying there prerformence role. that it was harder than it looked. It was sad. Until (one of my heroes mind you) Jamie L says he hates this stuff.( computer NI bassed triggering)! It's hard to choke down this was a marketing ploy for Native. But what ever, it's a good ploy. I would also like to say that I am not bashing these people, and can't prove my self yet to the world because the D.S.I Tempest is a huge time sucker( in a good way) .
