Must Die, MOTi and Tiësto Killed @Webster Hall Last Weekend

As Webster Hall's weekly Brite Nites and BASSment Saturday's started forming their respective avenue long line on November 9th, rumors filled Twitter that there were to be 2 very special guests at the famed parties. Upon entering the venue, dozens of attendees whispered, "OMG Skrillex is going to show up" for Must Die's set, due to his Tweet hours before, "@MUSTDIEmusic im find you," which has since been taken down from his account. As BASSment Saturdays commenced, Whip Van Wrinkle blew minds with enough bass driven dubstep to satisfy any bass head. As his set went on it became progressively more intense until the up and coming dubstep overlord Must Die donned the decks.


Meanwhile, two floors up, Tyler Sherritt was off to an amazing start, getting the crowd ready for MOTi with his own blend big room electro anthems. Using live vocals is one of the keys to Sherritts recent success and it was certainly a crowd pleaser. The Ballroom seemed almost at capacity by the time MOTi came on. Everything seemed pretty standard in regards to a usual MOTi set until the last half hour, when Tiësto decided that he wanted to perform. Along with Skrillex's hinting tweet, Tiësto had also said, "I can't wait to see @motiofficial tonight at Webster Hall #NewYork," implying that he would also be in attendance. MOTi and Tiësto then went back to back for a half hour, leaving MOTi to close out the rest of his set.


The epic night going on upstairs kind of overshadowed Must Die's amazing performance going on in the BASSment, but he didn't let that get the best of him. Must Die absolutely destroyed the crowd in the Studio and had them begging for more. He played a lot of what he released on his EP, Death & Magic last month through OWSLA and played a lot of other recent releases including one from Knife Party. After this show, I highly suggest that everyone should check out one of his sets. About halfway through BASSment's resident DJ Subset set all hope was lost that Skrillex might show up, but at least social media proved to be reliable at least once that night, right?


So what did we learn last weekend?

  • Don't believe everything you read on social media, no matter how badly you want Skrillex to appear.
  • Tiësto is a good dude.
  • Check out Must Die, A$AP.
