Golden Bloggen was lucky enough to cover Australian electronic duo The Presets’ performance last night at Club Nokia. Los Angeles crowds are notorious for standing around, maybe a little head bobbing, but this was not the case! The energy from their opening song to the encore was electrifying and was perfectly coupled with dramatic stage lighting. The performance as a whole was truly spectacular. Check out the photo gallery HERE.

The Presets smashed the theater with their big hits: “My People”, “This Boy’s in Love” and “Talk Like That”. If you are not familiar with these slamming tunes head over to The Presets Myspace Page

The Presets are massive in Australia and have toured with well known acts like Daft Punk, Ladytron and 2 Many DJ’s. They have won ARIA Awards for “Best Dance Release” and “Album of the Year” for Apocalypso in 2008. That album is a classic that we are still spinning! If you have a chance to check them out at Coachella or whenever they are in your town, it’s highly recommended!

Opening for The Presets was Nosaj Thing and MAN that guy really DJs. He stays so busy triggering cues and playing with effects, it’s like he’s creating the entire song on the fly for the crowd. He does amazing things with what looked like an all-Ableton set on a single controller. Inspiring for bedroom DJs across America!

Big thanks to Parallel Management for putting together a great event.

    Brilliant to hear Presets are making LA jump!!! couldn’t be more proud and thrilled that the guys are taking it to the rest of the planet; if you had seen the Sound Relief crowd under pouring rain in a massive sync’d ball of love and beat and joy, you would not be surprised in the least – hope the sound wavs keeping going right across the states – go Presets!, love and pride from Aus 🙂
