Bisco Day 2
The crowd tried to chill during the heat of day sets by Eliot Lipp, Break Science w/ Chali 2na and Portugal. The Man. However with the New York evening weather and top-tier line up, these concertgoers needed a rest.
Big Boi held up the party and started 40 minutes late. While many were upset, his 20 minute set crammed “Rosa Parks”, “Way You Move”, “Ms. Jackson”, “Shutterbug”, “Wheelz of Steel” and more. The party was definitely started as Lotus continued the funk with their brand of jamtronica.
Shpongle debuted his full band set up at Bisco last year and when Simon Posford announced that he could not make it to Cb11, the promoters did the next best thing. Emancipator performed with a full live band as well. This one featuring Bonobo, Gabe Lehner and Eric Poline of Inspired Flight, Molly Kummerle of Paper Tiger, and Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic on select tracks. The medley of musicians made for a really special set. All of these amazing musicians performing such beautiful music at one time was a great interlude before the night got wild.
Amon Tobin brought his futuristic 3D mapped project to co-headline Saturday night with the biscuits. His 2012 bass odyssey was the most different set of the weekend. While it’s hard to pin point and compare this one-of-a-kind artist, you should go and find out for yourself.
Dada and mim0sa closed out Saturday in the dance tent with music going strong ’til 4am. Dada Life brought out the edm freaks with a heavy dose of electro house and massive blow up champagne bottles. There were a dozen or so home-made banana rage sticks as well. The place was a mad house as the two bald men dropped jewels like “Kick Out The Epic”.
mim0sa started his set with possibly the most played track of the weekend with RL Grime’s remix of Kanye West’s “Mercy”. The place went insane with the 808 trap drop and this would prove to be a trend for the entire festival. While Skrillex, Bassnectar, Minnesota and Dillon Francis would all drop some trap, mim0sa is doing his best to be the king of the new dance/rap hybrid. His self-proclaimed “future trill” style was perfect for the crowd to go wild to in the wee hours of the morning.
