We put the call out to the ITM contributor massive about who they rate as dance music’s greatest live acts and the response was simply enormous. Here’s the Top 30 dance artists who just kill it live. How does your list match up?
#30 Simian Mobile Disco
Kicking things off is UK duo Simian Mobile Disco. Although they throw down a mean DJ set, it’s live that they really get things going, the pair shining under an epic lighting rig while they play cut and paste with every element of their tunes.
#29 Groove Armada
Showing off their revamped live show at this year’s Big Day Out, Groove Armada obviously impressed fans with their energetic sets, which they’ll be bringing back again for Parklife.
#28 Roni Size Reprazent
The full live line-up of Roni Size Reprazent that took the stage at Good Vibrations 2009 was wish fulfilment for drum & bass heads, and the performances excelled expectations.
#27 Nathan Fake
At the other end of the scale from the bombastic stage shows dominating the list is the musical alchemy of Nathan Fake. The Border Community impresario is not one for cheap thrills, and he’s all the better for it.
New Zealand drum & bass crew Shapeshifter has always been monumental on stage, but with each new album the live show just gets that little bit better.
