HACKD Live: MWBF & CMPC 2016

View comments (27)


And we're back with another round of 100% brony produced EDM sets featuring my live performance at Midwest Bronyfest in Kansas City as well as a "highlight reel" of my Crystal Mountain Ponycon set in Salt Lake City. I'd like to thank Callum for providing and processing the footage of my MWBF set. Admittedly, I think I would have preferred just a continuous front view- idk why but that 3/4 shot is at the most awkward angle and makes it look like I'm doing some really strange arm movements lol. Regarding the "highlight reel", aside from only having raw camera audio to work with (and that we totally screwed up the contrast so it's near bitch black lmao) I mostly just wanted to showcase a couple extra artists that you can subscribe to for more pony music. And I think it serves as a nice reminder that these concerts are often way more energetic than a static recording is able to capture. Even if it doesn't look like people are moving, they certainly are- plus a sterile mix recording doesn't capture the physicality of the sub bass, the crowd hype, etc.

Anyways, both conventions were a lot of fun and if you were there you may have seen me going around hyping Cider Party & Horse Music Herald while handing out their respective business cards. In just six months, we managed to come a long way in creating new social infrastructure to support talented, underground artists, and I'd like to thank Spectra, EPT, and the rest of the HMH crew for making that possible. I'd also like to shout out Kill Screen, DJ Rod, and StrachAttack (and I think FlightRush as well) for their efforts in similarly showcasing how awesome our music community is. If you're attending any upcoming cons featuring them, let people know that those are performances you do not want to miss!
