Listen: Coachella ‘live’ Sets From Skrillex, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, Calvin Harris and Fatboy Slim

Didn’t get a ticket to Coachella? Worse yet, missed out on the live streaming rave from the comfort of your home? Worry not, sets from the first weekend of Coachella have found their way onto Soundcloud and we’ve rounded up five of the best from Skrillex, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, Calvin Harris and the big geezer Fatboy Slim

With the explosion of ‘EDM’ in the states this was going to be a surefire hit with the 75,000 strong crowd and deliver it did. Kicking off with Breach’s breakthough “Jack” before swiftly kicking into gear with the heaviest dubstep we’ve heard in a while. The wubs stuck around for a good portion of the set and included new licks from ‘Recess’ as well as RL Grime and What So Nots banger “Tell Me” which led into one of our new favourite tracks “Hotplate” from Moody Good levelled things out before a cheeky play of MGMT’s “Kids” reminded people a DJ set can dance from different genres and still have you moving. During a full listen you’ll also catch stuff from Disclosure, new Jack U and even Tupacs “California Love”. With enough MC work from the OWSLA boss including the gem “I fucking love my life right now” meant this would have been a fun one to be at!

The Flossy guys certainly know how to get a crowd moving from the get go. This was evident at their recent stint in Australia for Big Day Out but more than ever when they managed to get people turnt at 6pm, during daylight hours on day 3 in the desert! With a non-stop arsenal of trap and club hits this was always going to be a big one for the obviously dance-friendly crowd. Bombs from DJ Funk, Missy Elliot, 2 Chainz, RL Grime & What So Not and more made this one of our favourite sets of Coachella and a proven example of a Dj and MC combination working oh so perfectly. That, and their attempt at kicking off the ‘biggest mosh at Coachella’ a welcome change of audience participation to the hands up business.

Calvin Harris
The planets aligned for Calvin Harris, who managed to nab the second biggest Coachella crowd in it’s history only behind behind the Tupac hologram, a huge feat. Kicking things off with “Close To You Right Now” and hearing the mostly female roar you can understand his perfect placement between ‘EDM’ and pop. Things did get a little slinkier later on with bigger drops and heavier bpms which the crowd undoubtedly would have enjoyed alongside the melodics of Icona Pop and his own “Bounce”.  Skip to 1:15 for the start of the set.

Dillon Francis
One word… BASS. Probably could have done without so much work on the mic but Dillon sure knows how to rile up a crowd.

Fatboy Slim
We can never pass up an opportunity to catch Fatboy Slim behind the decks, whether it’s in the flesh with smiles on our dials or sitting at home with headphones firmly in place and turned up loud. His Coachella set was no different to his usual antics of plainly put, fun music kicking things off with his own classic “Right Here, Right Now” before diving into another, his club anthem “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” before quickly mixing into “Renegade Master” from Wild Child. The peak? A remix of Marvin Gayes “Grape Vine” before a devilishly bumper drop. Action kicks off at 0.49.
