III Points Festival

James Murphy: "With Dance Music, People Are Being Treated as If They're Really Dumb"

"This is the weirdest scenario."

That's how DFA Records founder and former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy half-laughingly reacted to Bardot Miami's (almost claustrophobic) living room-like setting for his Red Bull Music Academy Couch Session at the inaugural III Points Festival.

There were fans sprawled all over the low-lit hipster hangout. They were perched atop bar stools. They were comfortably slumped into sofas throughout the club. They were clustered on the floor, staring eagerly and wide-eyed, just a few feet from the guru, Mr. Murphy, as he sat cross-legged, clutching his mic.
