This week in The Armory we celebrate the 100th episode of the podcast with our good pal, Motion Potion, respected San Francisco DJ and founder of the hugely successful production/promotion services company, HUSHConcerts. The set you’re about to hear was recorded live from the silent disco at the Bonnaroo Festival this year. We’re honored that MoPo is letting us share it with you. Enjoy!
“This was my tenth year playing at Bonnaroo Festival and to say that this is an honor is quite an understatement. As I explain clearly in my blog post, this festival is in many ways to credit for my having a career at all. For my tenth year, they had me play six sets over three days and each one was different. I played two sunshine vibe daytime sets, a special 80’s set to celebrate Tears For Fears appearance at the festival, and a late night EDM scorcher on a flaming artcar. For this evening Silent Disco set I wanted to throw out any notion of “newness” or “hipness” and just play my favorite funky party jams and rock bangers for an audience that was waiting (on average) 2 hours to get into the tent. I also wanted to do some major shouting out to Robert Plant, who was in attendance. As it was the place went batshit crazy and I was extremely happy with the result. Often, a good show means a bad recording but I was happy enough about this recording to share it and so honored to have Zach and Armory agree to put it out. Enjoy!” – MoPo
