Banana Split 2 Year: Experience the Banana

Sunday November 2nd, we celebrated the 2 year anniversary of Banana Split. It was pretty fucking amazing. Easily one of the best nights we've ever had and it was crazy crowded!

Everyone there had a great time, but for those of you who weren't... you can basically re-live the night through this post, as the entire night was recorded!

I kicked off the night with some tasty jams and then AM joined in and we went 1 for 1 for the second half of my set. Thats when things started getting crazy on the dancefloor, as we trying to out bomb drop each other:

Then AM took over for a little while, joined later by JFK(MSTRKRFT), and then they went 1 for 1 for a bit. At this point we're deep in total dancefloor madness.

Then it was time for our guest of honor, the one and only DJ Falcon. He played an amazing set and the crowd response was unbelievable, I was definitely fanning out. He really took the ableton dj style to the max, doing ill live remixing and adding drums here and there. I LOVE THIS MIX!

After that, our secret special guest Busy P took over and dropped bomb after bomb on em. New tracks from Tiga, Soulwax, Armand Van Helden, Crookers, Mr Oizo and the like... even some Vampire Weekend thrown in for good measure.

First off, anyone have a track list for what JFK played that night?

Second, other than the M-Audio Trigger Finger and the Laptop (with Ableton), what epuipment does DJ Falcon use? His set was amazing.

Great Blog Mike
