► Sofi Tukker’s late night
The New York duo offered an electroclash party, accompanied by dancers dressed in the color of the sunset, kitsch visuals and lots of colored lights. A true duo, where the roles are mobile and where the connection between them and their enjoyment are felt.
Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern took turns at the microphone and walked around an eclectic catalog of danceable songs, from French electro to tropical congas. An electropop party that felt like a late-night club from the golden days of electroindie under the sun of an afternoon in March 2023.

The Last Great Thing of English Trays and Skrillex’s recent right-hand man (and b2b partner) performed solo for the first time in Argentina, not with a rabid dj set but with a live where they joined their virtuosity with the knobs and buttons with their song sensibility. Good taste and melancholy in a walk through British genres from the nineties to here.
The artist expressed his gratitude through plaques written on the screens, using generic typography and without much artifice. And when it comes to playing his instant hit produced with Skrillex, rumble, featured on screens all the guests who lent their voices to the songs, from The xx’s Romy Madley Croft to MC Flowdan.
► Jamie xx, between nostalgia and the future
In a weekend marked by the great international bass figures, Jamie xx is the most elegant and the most experimental. With a minimalist setting of lights, smoke and a mirror ball behind, the English producer and member of The xx offered his first and long awaited dj set in Argentina.
More than a DJ, Jamie XX is a storyteller, and the set with which he closed the second date of Lollapalooza was a walk through the most diverse emotional states. Post dubstep, house, breaks and techno, but also sound valleys, almost shoegaze moments and even brief forays into funk dance. The producer managed to make people dance, make people travel and, in an hour and a half and almost without vocals, never stop moving. Something very unusual for a DJ set that closes a big festival.
The last two tracks of the night were an extended remix of their luminous contemporary classic Goshand the dancehall pop of I Know There’s Gonna Be Good Times. A nod to the connoisseurs of an artist who, more than worrying about making catchy songs, is dedicated to building bridges between nostalgia and the future.
