Monika Kruse (Day 1)
Crystal Waters – She’s Homeless (Edit)
Terminal M boss Monika Kruse is someone who’s really been enjoying the big stage of late. The German DJ, producer and label owner never fails to bring the heat, such as here where she unleashed this nifty edit of Crystal Water’s iconic house jam, ‘She’s Homeless’. Wrapping a tough tech-house sound around the original’s vocal proved a masterstroke: getting the crowd on stage with two very different vibes. But then Kruse has always been one to mix things up. Now, who can tell us who this edit is by?!
Carl Cox (Day 1)
Adam Beyer, Layton Giordani & Green Velvet – Data Point
Coxy, of course, is a well — probably more than any at EXIT — who knows how to fulfil large crowds. More than any DJ over the course of the 4 days, it was his presence on the stage which brought about the biggest whoops and cheers. Playing to the crowd as he always did, his set was a full-on sound assault, brilliantly summed up with ‘Data Point’, a modern Drumcode classic featuring the work of Adam Beyer, Layton Giordani & Green Velvet. With that trio all involved, it’s hardly surprising this one worked an absolute treat.
