yeah... well... his livesets are an odd mish-mash of straight pop-songs 
and odd looping stuff. He's definitely doing things to bridge the gap, 
but I dare say that his entire audience doesn't dig his looping stuff.

As an aside: It's an awesome max-patch he's using - or rather: he's 
quite skilled at using it. And that drop where the sub-synthed bassline 
comes in is golden.
