The Glitch Mob are a California based electronic outfit merging hip hop and electro that create bass heavy tracks popular with the Burning Man scene. Formed roughly two years ago, the group are noted for “slaying crowds” with their high energy live performances. xlr8r has an interesting piece exploring how the group has appropriated the stage presence of a live band while still manning a Macbook:

“When you have a laptop up there, it can create this wall between the performer and the audience, because you don’t really know what the hell the person is doing up there,” Boreta, the lone member of the group who resides in San Francisco, adds. “We’re trying to approach what we do not from necessarily the traditional DJ angle, but more of a live band angle.”
