    yeah skrillex looked pretty fake in that video. also smoking next to all that gear, not such a good idea. the fatboy slim video looked like real, His entrance was pretty cool

  • Justin H

    I shot that NumberNin6 vid. Thanks for posting! :)

    joel wasnt referring to the new mau5head with that tweet

  • proben

    these videos would be really cool if they had much better sound quality.  And no video.

    I will never forget that skrillex dive. It was @ Horden Pavillion in Sydney, and i was standing in front row for 9hrs with no food, water, and toilet breaks. Well worth it!!!!!!! Even got a photo with Joel, who was on after Sonny. Great night!

      He’s look absolutely terrible in that picture.

  • Sjloughlin

    i actually think the deadmau5 one is for his house not the head, because he is in the phase of remodeling his house at the time and hence the “mau5hau5″ meaning deadmau5 house

    Skrillex use fake knob and arrangement view of ableton…

    Skrillex did a nice job of faking it

    went to the Deadmau5 concert last night at Roseland Ballroom, it would have been awesome to see what Joel was seeing

  • Aclutter

    You can also live stream a GoPro mounted on some trussing to a NuVj Arkaos. It’s a cool perspective to have available at an event.

  • Dj_in_the_zone

    I’d like to actually hear what the performer is listening to….the cued track in his/her headphones as well as the music coming from the club/monitors…that will be the ultimate dj lesson… 

  • jay

    gotta love skrillex fake knob twisting and even twisting the fx selector knob on the djm-800 for show

      DOUBLE TRUTH

  • Djjackmeoff

    Lets keep POV in porn. BE@.TV does an amazing job of covering events. All these videos posted were hard to watch and hear. Although I see the appeal for the diehard fans and daydreaming djs, its an unneeded tool/fad that I wont contribute too. Leave AV work to the pros.

      Hi Patrick,

      Check this out ;) (Roger Sanchez 4 decks mix with perfect visibility..)

    It seems Deadmau5′s tweet was referring to installing livestreaming in his home studio, not his helmet. “mau5hau5″

  • cpoynter

    Haha if you watch the next video that pops up after the Skrillex one you can see how badly his crowd-surfing failed.

    This is a good way to weed out the charlatans who just jump about in the booth and just play a pre recorded mix.

    • TStef

      Doesn’t really matter in the end. The crowd eats his music up (I’m assuming u’re talking about Skrillex). It’s all about the music, not so much about mixing/not mixing.

        Aye maybe for him and all his kiddie fans

        • http://www.facebook.com/benbaronmusic Ben Baron

          True, but also in his case he’s a producer before he’s a DJ. I’m not a fan of his music, but I give producers more leeway in that regard. If you didn’t make the music AND you’re faking the DJ set then you’re really nothing more than a jukebox.

          • http://www.facebook.com/Livewyr3 Justin Turner

            Finally, someone gets it. I liked it back when he used ableton to quantize when he loaded his next track in (and yes, he does pick his tracks live) his mixes were somewhat solid and it always sounded good. Now, he’s trying to use CDJs and bombing his sets.

  • St Villanus

    I was digging for and consuming videos of this nature last month. I became interested after seeing a promo video for an event with Skrillex on the bill. The promo video used a portion of the video above or a great recreation. I think the point-of-view of the performer, such as a head or glasses mounted camera, is valuable in moderation. It might not be so valuable in large doses, like many consecutive minutes. But, with edits, the energy of a performance video could be greatly heightened. That same point-of-view can ad some humanity to a music icon when you see how they handle mistakes or surprises.

    a cool way to document a dj set would be the minus embed type deal kind of thing :P if you take a close look it shows a lot of creativity by the cam guy but still is a good way to document a special presentation

    skillex is the man.

    • Ifuckedyourmother

      Skrillex is a cunt.

  • Djhombre

    don’t forget DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist did this a while back during the Product Placement and Hard Sell tours…I think at one stage they used some sort of wrist-cam too for super-close up visuals of their deft finger work on the crossfader.

    • Spacecamp

      Yep – Chris/Flashflooder mentioned this to me while I was writing it today, but we couldn’t find any awesome videos of it on YouTube – know of any? 

    • Rbxspam

      I went the Hard Sell in Australia while they were touring
      it and the wrist cam was awesome.  Later on I purchased the concert on DVD
      and I have to say that the video aspect was very underwhelming.  I think that the guy in charge of the live
      video recording was a little too excited about having lots of small remotely controlled
      video cameras forgetting at a few good camermen with professional video cameras
      still take much better footage than remotely controlled webcams.  The cameras used in the hard sell predated
      the GopPro and were not HD, in fact much of the footage was really grainy and looked
      more like a recording taken with a mobile phone.  I’m all for daring video production
      techniques, but at least have a fallback plan with a few tried and true methods
      too.

  • Pascwall

    thats pretty cool. fatboy slims was awesome.

  • Gábor Szántó

    It was interesting to see that Skrillex did not deal with audio quality (full red VU meter), while Norman was on the safe side always. :-)

    • Harpdarp

      It’s mostly because Skrillex does hardly anything at all. There’s a reason why he’s able to stagedive: his random knob turning has no real appreciable difference on what he’s doing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001945260195 Rg Tb

    this kinda stuff might matter for events where entry fees are really high. if people pay, say, 50 bucks admission, they wanna see where all that money went.

    at the parties i play at and at the parties i go to, admission is cheap (or free), and people don’t care about lights or cameras. what matters is the music and the vibe.

    good music, i dance. no good music, i not dance.

  • Phil Morse

    “ It does have drawbacks – how long can one watch a bouncing camera shot before you start to get a little queasy?” – Dunno if it’s because I’m a DJ, but I could watch that Fatboy Slim cam forever! Love his old school/nu school DJing technique/set-up too – now there’s a real DJ :)

    • Spacecamp

      Indeed, Phil – I think the reason I got sick on the NumberNin6 video was because at the end of the day, I just didn’t like it as much – I prefer my DJs to have masking tape on the mixer :D

        actually… what is the masking tape for?…. seems something is written on it and its holding something else to the mixer??
