I think he did no show. I left just after 10 and figured he woulda been on by then. An explanation from these promoters would be nice.

Sound was missing the mids, too bass heavy. Music was alright, plodding at times though.

Moment of the night: Olivia Chow showing up and introducing Bob Moses. I had a smile on my face for that.

You definitely did, it was my least favourite Island party thus far. Crappy weather, music wasn't too good IMO, Troxler no-show, Olivia Chow yammering on to the crowd etc

The Troxler no show was the worst. No one said anything about it at the event...probably not to ruin the vibe. But it seems like they knew about it well in advance, cuz everyone else played extended sets. Like this event's ticket price was based on this guy coming, otherwise it woulda been cheaper.

But to be honest, the music itself was good in some spots only, from whatever I could make out anyway. Like I said, I couldn't hear the mids that well, everything was like a boom-tiss throughout. It was cool hearing the live stuff Bob Moses was doing, some melodic mellow tracks that I enjoyed. MJC upped the tempo and played a bit harder, but it wasn't anything too different from what we heard before and I don't think Seth woulda changed it up too much but who knows. I was waiting for him to come on but it became apparent at like around 9:30 that he wasn't gonna come. I know these things go till 10:30 so I was thinking maybe it'd go even late, and we'd see this guy but I was doubting it.

He was supposed to do the afterparty too, so it's a double whammy.

Yeah they have Hot Since 82, Tale of Us, and Jamie XX for the next one. We've already had two of these performers come already to EI. Hot Since 82 is always good but Tale of Us was OK last year. They shoulda got someone newer and bigger (i.e. Maceo Plex, Dusky, DIGWEED, some old school guys maybe like Danny Howells or something.)

For the record they did announce the no show early on.
I also find it funny that a hilarious 2 and a half minute plur speach annoyed some. Show some support to people in power that support you.

We had a great time yesterday. Thought the sound system was great. Just had to move around a bit to find the good spots. Plenty of volume this time around.

Mary Jane Coles was def set of the night but even felt that she was holding back a bit too much at times.

2.5 minutes too many.

I don't need to, and don't want to hear anyone pandering for votes when I'm at a party.

basically, people paid money to attend olivia chow political rally. some people are cool with this. but what if rob ford showed up instead. lulz

politics has no business at electric island or other edm events. i certainly won't be attending any future electric island events

Yeah they announced the no show before MJC... i knew something was up once i realized bob moses was playing for 90mins... a good group of the crowd booed, the others prbly didnt even know who seth was... me and my friends were pissed off when they announced it... I know Seth n the Martinez Bros did a Tuskgee Record label party on Govenors Island in NY on Sunday so he most likely got to retarded to come to Toronto...
really really shitty that he didnt show... i would have went to the after party but too but was to cheesed to waste more cash...
that was the second let down of the event the first was when i showed up and seen the line up for labour day... i was under the impression Maceo was playing but instead seen Tale of Us... kind of weak that this is the 2nd year and they already having repeat headliners Seth, Tale of Us, Hot Since 82.... im not saying i dont like those artists i just like seeing new talent... Steve Lawler or anybody from Hot Creations I would have lovrd to see at EI...
a couple of side notes
Alot of younger punk-ish looking kids in the crowd... many of them didnt know shit about who there were listening to most likely there for the drugs...
i liked bob moses, i didnt notice the lip syncing thou...
MJC was great, first time aseeing her... but i was to pissed about seth to go to the after party...
i missed the olivia chow thing... but i would have thrown my size 12 nikes at her if i seen her ugly mug on stage lol i was told that she said she wants to make Toronto the next Berlin.. bhahaha clearly someone told her to say that...
