Want to make a small ocean of festivallers scream like it's 1964 and the Beatles just rocked The Ed Sullivan Show? If you're Earl Sweatshirt, all you've got to do is play a snippet of Odd Future associate Tyler, the Creator rapping over one of your songs and they'll lose their damned minds roaring for his arrival. Luckily for the countless Supreme-hatted stans gathered at the Gobi tent for the midnight set, the Golf Wang guru strutted straight out to perform his part of Earl's new single "Whoa." And then he stuck around to do just about every other song the two have shared verses on — from the ancient EarlWolf deep cut "Orange Juice" to "Rusty" from Tyler's Wolf, featuring an additional assist from Domo Genesis. Oh, and did we mention that Flying Lotus was Sweatshirt's DJ for the night?
But for all the insanity — Tyler's insatiable need to climb scaffolding; Taco's 15-foot Olympian leap from the stage into the crowd; FlyLo's live remixes of fan favorites; and all of those dark, rawly rapped new tracks — nothing brought the house down like everyone's original introduction to Odd Future: a little song about sex, drugs, and cannibalism from 2010 called "Earl." Our ears are still ringing from a few thousand frothing Wolf Gang fans shout-rapping, "Try talking on a blog with your fucking arms cut off!" Gulp.
