Bottom post of the previous page:

Seriously, almost no transitions, many breaks, too much mic work, no empire, no follow me, cutting the check this out almost in the middle... As one of his biggest fans, i am still in shock of such a horrid performance.
Agreed, all of his sets since Ultra have been the same. :/ It's really hypocritical of him since he's one of the big artists pushing people to do something new.

And does it bother anyone else that he lies during his sets to get the crowd pumped? "I've only played this track TWICE before!" He did it last year with Wasted Love and this year with the new ID.

How many times has he played the new ID anyways? 3? 4 max?

Edit: I think that up to Tomorrowland, he had only played it twice.

I was shocked when I saw his set. You can say what you want about A/\I set, but there was energy in the area. Steve had so many breaks and no flow in his set.
Obviously, the TL crowd reacts harder on EDM crap but some artist showed that there is still hope. The start was ok but then it went straight downwards with a small highlight named Payback.

COTW did not worked well in the end, he shouldnt have played it in full length and he needs a mashup for festivals cause the vocal part is too flat imo for big stages.

So, I'm going to tell you guys a thing I think you'll find interesting:

A few months ago I was sitting in the studio with a guy, cant mention names, but he has a few tracks released on size. We talked about music and all that and he mentioned that he will be releasing an album on Size. Of course, I asked to hear a few songs and they are all really really dark/as far from mainstream house you can get.

I reacted pretty strong and asked him why he wanted to release all these songs on size which is an pretty "hard" label. But I was told that Steve wants size to be really really underground again. I believe that he is changing the label continuously - going deeper and deeper! This explains Pelican for example...

Sorry in advance if there are any typos :)

Was my first thought as well :P Thanks for sharing ivan! What about Wild Youth tho? The constant moving of half-promised release dates is so annoying...

No, not Sebjak! This guy is more of a techy kind of guy... Maybe Sebjak is about to release an album on Size too, but I cannot confirm that :(
