Found the Pot of Gold at Lucky 2012 (Reader Submitted)

One of our fans submitted his RECAP of Lucky 2012 show in Seattle. Enjoy!

What do you get when you put a bunch of the world’s top DJs, electrifying sound and visual systems, and thousands of people? You get one of Seattle’s best shows yet! Lucky 2012, held at the WaMu Theater last Friday.

To start out the night we got in at about 9:15pm to watch the young Texas based Crunkstep producer, Crizzly. As soon as we got to the stage the bass was thumping and Crizzly was working the crowd with hit after hit, that included a sweet remix of DMX’s “Get It On The Floor”, and a mash up of “Dance” (A$$) and “Crush On You” (Knife Party Remix).

The crowd went absolutely bonkers when Crizzly dropped his banging remix of “Snap Back Swag”.

After witnessing Crizzly throw down some monster bass we figured it was time to head over to the main stage where one of my favorite producers Hardwell was jamming. I have heard many of Hardwell’s sets and he never disappoints.

As a DJ he reads the crowd well and puts together a flawless set every time. Hardwell did exactly that, dropping massive tunes such as “Zero 76” and “Spaceman” which had the crowd jumping for the roof. One last thing about Hardwell, the man has a perfect ear for doing mash-ups. If you haven’t heard his bootleg and mash-up package, which is a free give away, go out and get it now!

The night continued with another great artist as Porter Robinson took the stage to drop some dirty Electro House on the crowd. Porter put together a great set mixing his tunes alongside classics at a quick pace that kept the crowd jumping the entire time.

He mixed his remix of Spencer and Hill “Less Go” straight into the classic “Illamerica” by Wolfgang Gartner, sending the crowd into a frenzy. This is the third time I have seen Porter and each time has been better than the last.

After Porter Robinson we headed back to the side stage where Flux Pavillion was unleashing the Bass Cannon. This was the second time this year I have got to see Flux and this time it seemed as if his skills behind the decks were a lot better, as his set ran a lot smoother.

He dropped all his major bangers which definitely left a few faces on the floor.

Last but not least we went back to the main stage to witness one of the hottest producers in the game right now and Lucky’s headliner, Calvin Harris.

The crowd was looking a little beat until Calvin got behind the decks and cranked up the energy with his explosive dance floor hits.

He played all his classics like “Feel So Close” and “Flashback” along with his new radio hits, and a lot of the top EDM tracks at the moment. One of the highlights for me was when he mixed Nicky Romero’s “Toulouse” into Firebeatz smash “Where’s Your Head At”, giving the crowd no time to rest.

The coolest part about Calvin’s set was that even though they tried to put on the lights to stop his set, he still “Kicked Out The Epic Motherfucker” and the crowd kept going nuts until he was finally shut down.

If you have never been to a USC event then make it a point to be at the next one. They bring in some of the biggest talent in the electronic world, as well as top notch sound and visual production. As if all the great artists mentioned above weren’t enough to draw you in.

The show also had Leprechauns, Unicorns, and half men half goats walking around and jumping on stage. Yes, you read that last part right. Seattle loves to get weird, crazy and rage all night!
