How Flosstradamus Unintentionally Ruined Carl Cox's Set At EDC New York (Video)

How Electronic Music Conquered America

Normally you wouldn't expect to hear the names Flosstradamus and Carl Cox in the same sentence, but in a strange series of events at EDC New York this past weekend, their sets collided in an unexpected way. In a video uploaded to YouTube during Carl Cox's set, you start to notice random vocals appearing that are clearly not being played from that stage.

Somehow a wireless microphone on the wrong feed from Flosstradamus started infiltrating the stage Carl Cox was playing at, with words like "turn up" appearing randomly. This starts around 1:05, and initially sounds like it could be some sort of vocal sample and even timed with the lights at times (1:33). This continues though, and you can tell the audience becomes confused and starts to loose their groove.

Around 1:57 we hear "All my medical smokers, when I saw grow, you say kush," and then "turn the fuck up" at 3:36. Carl Cox even cut the music around the 3 minute mark when the ghost MC starts chanting numbers presumably before a drop. Around 3:50 we hear "Somehow someones got onto our microphone frequency...soon as we find out who it is we can get started."

This seemed to only last about five minutes, but you can see people leaving the area and reports from other blogs and YouTube users saying this drastically ruined their experience at Carl Cox. It's an unlikely story and sound difficulties do happen, but it's a shame when it affects someone's set. You can watch the video below.
