We’re Headed to Coachella!

The Almighty Lineup

APRIL 17 & 24… Coachella, here we come!! So pumped to bring the efunk to one of the most diverse festivals around! Catch us in Indio!!!

Anti-Pop – Another party we couldn’t go to…

Europe… I’m so jealous of you. You get to do what Americans always wish they can do; party all week long and listen to Techno in the backyard of the local castle, nize. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Portugal’s annual Anti-Pop Festival has grown from a one night experiment in 05, to a three day extravaganza with some of the worlds best electronic music in’07.

With names like Richie Hawtin, Ellen Allien and Apparat, Mathew Dears Big Hands, Gui Borrato, Octave One, Magda, Troy Pierce, Extrawelt, Paul Kalkbrenner, Gaiser, Hearthrob and Rui Vargas, its no wonder party monsters came out by the thousands.

Major sound, major lighting effects, major talent… Skys the limit when the sponsors finally see the big picture.

Thanks to some insider intellegence on Danceplanet.com, we’ve tracked down a bunch of video’s of the madness we all missed:

Monegros Desert Festival

On Saturday right before we left Europe we went to a festival in the desert outside Barcelona called Monegros. 40,000 people we’re there to wild out from 5pm Saturday til 2pm Sunday with 7 tents of TECHNO MUSIC. It was by far the biggest rave I’ve been to in my life.

Here’s Charlie’s play-by-play.
