While the change of plans may have disrupted the intended experience, Alain Macklovitch isn’t renowned as one of the world’s best DJs for nothing, turning what might have originally been a more hip-hop oriented set into something fit for the Dayglow ravers. There was still something for everyone there, including his signature routine beat juggling Daft Punk’s “Robot Rock,” as well as “Hot As Hell” from rockabilly/dance producer Drop the Lime. Another highlight of the night was, of course, an extended mix of “Barbra Streisand.” As half of the duo Duck Sauce, Macklovitch made a ubiquitous hit in pretty much every country where dance music is popular, also known as “not America.”
For the record, I don’t count being on Glee as a genuine career-building move, the same way I think about artists who have songs on Twilight soundtracks. It doesn’t build a serious fanbase, it just temporarily lures people in through the association with a popular (but intelligence-insulting) product. As much as I wish artists would take the time to research what they’re allowing their music to be connected with, I also understand that thing called money.
So rough baby baby baby baby baby, so rough Barbra Barbra Barbra Barbra Barbra!
