The guy is a fucking fantastic DJ and I think everyone that has seen him a bunch of times in different settings can attest to that. That said, I feel like his average quality has dropped a bit since he started touring full time, not exactly surprising since you can't bring your A game every time if you play like three short 2-3 hour sets every weekend. He also has a reputation as a closing DJ for a reason, I don't think he's the best at bang out peak time sets since he usually takes 1-2 hours to really warm up, which is of course unfortunate since with his ascend into techno stardom, he's mostly going to play the headline slot.
In terms of flow, from my experience he's not really up and down, it's just up, up up almost all the time. 98% of other DJs could never pull that off, but his mixing, phrasing and track selection are borderline flawless, so he can pull it off (although not quite every time).
yeah sure maybe i caught him on a bad night...and plenty of people who were there would probably disagree with my review - ive heard a lot of good things about him, guess i should give him another go some time
At one stage he had the whole place fucking rocking and i was thinking this guy could be the next big thing but he just couldnt, or didnt want, keep it going
