N.E.R.D, Chromeo, BoysNoize & Tinie Temper : LIVE Sydney 7 January 2011

Missed Tinie as we arrived around 9ish after a few red vodkas!

Chromeo performed their set with turntables perched atop a pair of hot, nude, plastic legs – it’s safe to say they tuned up the heat in the Hordern with their new tune; Night by Night. They churned out a few classics as well as some newbie’s, and the crowd took to them like bees to honey.  2 Step was undeniably the highlight and was damn awesome!
Chromeo have an undeniably good sound – smooth, upbeat and surreal all at once. Their 2007 album Fancy Footwork has been described as a frisky, sugary sophomore album, but in concert they come across as anything but sugary. A first-rate warm up dance act would be a safe summary of these boys.

Had Chromeo and BoyzNoize been placed in a 1-3am timeslot at the finale of an all-day dance festival, they probably would have sent the crowd into a considerable state of ecstasy. BoysNoizes’ electro drops and beats that he refers to as ‘acid-house fascinations’ are pretty much guaranteed to get your blood pumping. Using synthesisers and electro-pop tools, Alexander Ridha creates a sound that can get an entire audience moving in just a few beats.

N.E.R.D. however, created a monster. Pharrell Williams, the king of cool, has an on-stage presence that can be rivalled to few, and he knows it too. One over-zealous fan almost orgasmed when he was pulled on-stage to dance alongside the N.E.R.D troop. It’s clear the N.E.R.D. crew have a pretty strong following. But in complete honesty, I think you needed to be a fan to get a real kick out of their concert, but I'm not complaining a complementary ticket always is a winner, many thanks to Laura, luv ya babe!

A1 Chart Issue 1431

The Top 40 Music Videos of 2010

Possibly the music video was more exciting overall than actual music releases this year. Possibly the originality and creativity in these, especially the Top 20 gave me more excitement than I was expecting. Still the Top 2, and let me say the Top 2 do stand out purely because still today, 2010 as a world predujices are still stronger than ever. Well I found the creativity amazing in both, and like the #3, it should of created world domination of being able to go past the shock value but relate to the way of the world. A real world which we live in, instead continue to live in an unreal world. Adrian Lux and M.i.a thank you for having more heroism than anyone else I've seen this year.
