EDC Vegas 2011: Friday Night Preview Pt.1 – Bass Pod
For those who were around to see it, earlier on in the TFN history books we gave an artist preview for the 15 days before Ultra. Well we’re back at it, and the next on the Festival list is EDC. Insomniac has blessed us with three loaded nights full of high energy and breathtaking experiences. The first stage I want to focus on for Friday’s show is the Bass Pod stage. More specifically, the time slots that fill up the 11-3 period.
Bass Pod-Friday Night
At 1130 pm the Bass Pod will experience a breathtaking set by none other than Israeli dubstep producer Borgore. With his release of his Delicious EP, all Bass Poders will be taking in some wobbly sounds as the release was an instant success. Some of my favorites from Borgore include the song itself Delicious as well as his remake of Passion Pit’s Sleepyhead.

Borgore’s set will finish up somewhere in between 1230 and 1 but will kick off my EDC in the best of ways. From there the Bass Pod features Canadian sensation Excision. Excision aka Jeff Abel has just released an EP with Downlink entitled Existence. If you haven’t heard the EP, I highly recommend stepping up your game. Here’s my favorite two off the album Blue Steel and Existence (VIP).

Finally as the destruction of Excision starts to come to some sort of calming halt, UK duo Skream & Benga come to the stage. I don’t remember too much the last time I saw the two live, however I do remember that I was totally captivated by the music and lost all sense of what was going on around me. This is what happens when you get into the music, these guys are gonna kill it! Oh yeah I saw them at Ultra…
