Hi again Ott. I'm glad to hear I was imagining that whole thing. It's not that I was expecting you to be brazenly ecstatic, (fist pumping, hollering), I just hadn't experienced a DJ set; both of the other times I saw you (once at the Bottleneck in Lawrence, KS and on the Satellite Stage at Wakarusa 2014) you had more of your equipment with you.

I'm sorry to hear about your monitor issues though, maybe that's where I picked up that vibe and I apologize for misinterpreting that.

You obviously like to do things your own way and that's part of why I love your music so much. Perhaps my perception of an Album Release Tour was backwards as well; I'm not sure where I even conceived expectations of an ART so for that I apologize as well.

Needless to say you played an amazing set, and I did in fact have a blast. Baby Robot has been a favorite of mine and I about lost it when you played it.

Thank you for the clarification, and again I'll see you next May at Red Rocks. Safe travels!

That's ok, we're all projecting ourselves onto situations we encounter. No apology necessary.

I'm using a very similar setup to my old one, except that instead of having to carry a 50lb flight case around with me everywhere, it all fits into a Samsonite bag. That's progress.

So, instead of having to carry a mixer, soundcard, controllers and Kaoss pads around, I have three lightweight controllers and an iPad to do everything.

The net result is very similar, except that now I fly hand-luggage only and never have to watch as it all comes tumbling down a baggage carousel or be told that it has been flown to Vancouver when I'm in Austin, TX.
