Pearson Sound is a local favorite who makes his return to Boston amidst a brief stateside tour this weekend at Goodlife, thanks in part to Shake. Making a trip to our city at least once a year, Pearson Sound has been in the midst of a seemingly endless tour which is partially based off the strength of his Hessle Audio label. Revered for helping launch the career of the likes of fellow producers such as Untold, James Blake and Blawan, this artist has had a significant hand in helping shape post-modern British bass music in recent years.
Also a producer himself with a decade-long resume and multiple aliases, Pearson Sound’s long-awaited debut album released earlier this year and was a very well disciplined effort considering his eclectic (and even unpredictable) taste in music. Partially responsible (alongside Addison Groove) for helping fuse the Chicago footwork sound with formative British bass music over a half-decade ago, in Pearson Sound’s self-titled album we witness a refined sound focusing on not only complex rhythms and unorthodox bass modulations, but the space between the two. With many of its tracks varying in tempo and structure, it’s anything but formulaic. His DJ sets are renowned for being as equally as wild a ride.
Alongside Pearson Sound, Bassic residents C Dubs and Damian Silva are also taking to the decks for an opening tag set, so in the words of the former or the two…expect this one to be “bananas”. In fact, C Dubs also recorded a quick promo mix for the show, which you can check exclusively on the Shake page. It’s loaded with not only new pressure, but also a couple grime classics in the second half!
And as per usual, we’re also doing a ticket giveaway for this one. Just “like” Shake and Beantown Boogiedown on Facebook, and leave your name and email in the comments section below. Drawing is at 12pm this Saturday. Good luck peeps.
