MSTRKRFT. On the Live Stage. Born in 2005 from the ashes of the recently reunited disco-punk duo Death From Above 1979, MSTRKRFT always carried a little bit of latent rock 'n' roll influence in its ass pocket. But the new single, "Beards Again," is obscenely up front about its axe-thrashing ways. It's basically Iron Maiden versus a drum machine. Throw those horns.

The Glitch Mob. At the Tower of Ultra. OK, beat freaks, it's time to dig out another dose of Special K and follow L.A. trio Glitch Mob into the basement. Most likely, though, we won't be getting too much of those classic crackling break beats and steep synthy descents. With its debut slab, Drink the Sea, the Mob has evolved. So instead, expect arty, brooding electronica that's perfect for getting high and contemplating the shape of your hands.

Chemical Brothers. On the Main Stage. In the wake of our slo-mo subterranean freak-out with Glitch Mob, we'll be buried so deep that only the Chemical Brothers' bombastic big-beat anthems might possibly save us. Like some giant divine hand, "Block Rockin' Beats" will rip us right out of that 1,000-foot k-hole. "Setting Sun" will toss us into the ever-roiling rave pit. And "Do It Again" will make us wish this whole out-of-body trip to Ultra Land wasn't over.

Writer is has to be under 21. You write an article and don't reference the two legends on the bill Underworld and The Chemical Brothers. ASOT is not the draw on Sunday its the fact The Chemical Brothers are back in South Florida. It has been over a decade since these legends have played live in South Florida and its going to be insane!

How old is the writer? 16? Dropping all the drug refererences like he's a real cool guy. Hope you OD after your Ketamine/X bender, asshole.

Real responsible, MNT. Check back Monday to see how many kids died (or nearly died) at Ultra this year.

Whiny b@stards.... Let the guy make some drug references. Do you get upset when you read Hunter Thompson? Not that a music guide is comparable...... but seriously... don't be so uptight.

I agree with Jack......even I, who am all for drugs, found it uncomfortable reading this. He must have used the word drugs and high about 100 times! Very sad article.....I hope you were on acid when you wrote this......then maybe I would understand.
