Dimitri Vegas delivers madness at Amnesia despite Like Mike’s absence
Last night’s House of Madness was an interesting event. The absence of “hype-machine” Like Mike due to an illness may lead you to worry about the lack of the usual punch, but it was not the case. The solid line-up featuring Fedde Le Grand, DVBBS and Yves V definitely made up for it.
Martin Garrix’s 10-minute b2b set with Dimitri Vegas was packed with so much energy that we completely forgot about the absence of Like Mike. Yves V also chipped in and worked the crowd, providing the attendees a refreshing feeling. Though sound system did not impress us (sorry) – the pyrotechnics, the music and the light show (props to Fedde for putting lyrics on the screen) were definitely on point.
Here’s what went down last night:
Fedde Le Grand played a electro house dominated set as opposed to his usual progressive house focused performance. However, he did feature some high-energy progressive tracks that we all love so much; all in all, he delivered a great set with tracks that invited you to lose your mind in the heavy hitting bass while drawing out your rawest emotions.
Dimitri Vegas pretty much replayed his set from last week. He also busted out his usual crowd hyping acts including vodka/champagne showers, passing out free merchandise, and pogo at Tremor. Like Mike‘s absence was a shame, but not as detrimental to the show as you might imagine. Though the crowd energy was not as good as last Sunday, it was certainly not a disappointing show.
DVBBS was not happy with the dull crowd, but still delivered a powerful set. Carnage had a special appearance at their set when they dropped his Waiting For Love remix. Even though their production work is controversial, there is no doubt in DVBBS‘ crowd hyping skills.
Wolfpack kept the crowd dancing until the morning with a few bangers and some interesting mashups. By delivering a great warm-up show last week and putting a perfect ending to House of Madness last night, Wolfpack has impressed us once again.
The House of Madness truly is something else, with the energy and “madness” it draws from its attendees, it has secured its place in throwing one of the best parties in Ibiza.
