A few days back, I previewed the Slow Magic, Giraffage, & Daktyl show at Webster Hall on 11/20. If you didn't make it, you missed one hell of a performance...have a listen to Slow Magic's 2014 mixtape below for a taste of the insanity.
First off, the surprise of the night was Daktyl's mind-blowing set. Honestly, I attended the show because of the Headliners (as I'd guess most people did), however I left Webster Hall (at roughly 5:30am) a huge Daktyl fan. His set was chock full of brutal bass drops, mind bending wobbles, and aggressive launchpad sequences, one of which resulted in his laptop nearly catapulting off stage (for real). Daktyl also surprised the packed crowd with numerous electric guitar solos, live vocals, and piano riffs, all three of which somehow melded together perfectly. Turns out this guy wasn't featured on Diplo & Friends for nothing.

The masked, snare wielding producer jumped into the crowd after only 10 minutes on stage, and proceeded to beat his drum on the dance floor until it literally broke. That's pure, uninhibited passion if I've ever seen it. When he dropped "Girls" & "Waited 4 U", Webster went berserk. The intensity was palpable...when he left the stage around 2:30am, the crowd pleaded for him to stay on.

From a rework of Miley Cyrus' "Party In The USA" to a ridiculous re-interpretation of "Ignition", Giraffage kept Webster Hall on its toes. As the night was winding down, he brought out Slow Magic for a live rendition of "So Cute", featuring a unique combo of 3 drum sticks, 2 artists, and 1 Akai MPD32.
