The 2009 HARD Haunted Mansion was bursting at the seams with talent just like every other HARD event I’ve ever been to.  We attended Saturday night and the highlight for me was probably Basement Jaxx.

The act I was most excited to see was MAJOR LAZER, and even though their set was a little underwhelming, they still brought the party.  They are most certainly my favorite new DJ of the year.  Diplo > Everyone.

I think I take for granted how good of a showman Steve Aoki is because I live in LA, his hometown, but on this night I was in awe of this crazy mummy.  He was tearing the inside stage apart and his energy is infectious.

Of course the biggest draw for this HARD event was most likely the official headliners, JUSTICE.  While I do enjoy their music quite a bit, I’m always a bit skeptical of their live performances.  They were good this Halloween, so maybe I’ll finally stop doubting them.

Crookers also had a really amazing set on Halloween.  I was really diggin’ the remix they did of Major Lazer – Pon de Floor.  Diplo and Switch seemed to be pretty happy with it too, along with Meghan the scantily clad girl dancing up a storm.

All in all HARD Haunted Mansion was a raging party.  There were lots of costumes to match all the incredible DJs that came from across the globe to perform.  If you like electronic music even slightly and you have never attended a HARD event, you should definitely check one out.  They rage.
