Mad Decent Block Party San Diego 2014 Recap
Summer is slowly coming to a end, and so are the events that come with the season. Before it's done though, Mad Decent Block Party made sure to stop in the sunny skies of San Diego. This year's line up consisted of a variety of sounds from hip hop to house, and Melbourne bounce to filthy trap. We had no idea what the crowd would be like, but there is only one way to find out.
Along with this beautiful city comes some beautiful people. Ladies and gentlemen from all over united together, bringing nothing but smiling faces and good vibes. Upon entering the concrete lot you were instantly searching for some shade. A 5 day heat wave had just fell upon San Diego, and it so happened to reach it's highest on event day. This could have been a issue, but promoters were understanding and did there most to assist the melting crowd. Shade, free water, and picnic tables were provided due to the unusual circumstances.
Some sets that are worth a mention would be Laidback Luke, Flosstradamus, and the man behind Mad Decent himself, Diplo. Laidback Luke proved again why he is a he mix master. Not just dropping EDM we are used to hearing, he took it back to some classics. On top of a amazing track selection, we got to hear some of his famous scratching too. Jumping up on stage after that energetic set was the trap duo Flosstradamus. Oh man, what a party that was. We got some dirty trap, bass thumping Hardstyle, and even some Ying Yang twins all in one set. They really do know how to get a party going, and actually surprised us with how clever their mixing was.
Now it was time for the Diplo to express himself on the decks. His set was one of the best set we have seen from him to date. We got to hear all of the twerking classics, as well as a taste of the new sounds he has been working on. They crowd was at it's peak during his set, especially the girls which is NEVER a bad thing. The music moved everyone, and that's what it's all about.
Mad Decent Block Party is one event you need to make sure to attend before the summer is over. If you want madly decent music, beautiful people, and memories that will last a lifetime then make sure you check out this show.
