Seismic Wednesdays @ Goodlife, 2.4.2009

The February edition of Seismic dnb at the Goodlife. Come check out the Statesmen, they've been hard at work in the studio over the course of the past six months and the stuff they're probably going to play will show for it! Dave Assembler will lay down the rare groove and soul early on, then check out Nondeskript from western Mass, one of the best ragga dnb selectors the area has to offer! And the $0 cover on the flyer is not a typo!

Elements 10 Year Anniversary Party- 1.29.09

 

Cheers to the Elements Crew for ten years of drum and bass music in Boston! Party is this thursday, full details below:

It's been 10 years since a mass of dnb and other heads, undeterred by a blinding snowstorm, came to the Phoenix Landing for Elements' opening night. Despite the big turnout and positive vibes that night, noone ever imagined that Elements would continue this way for a decade and become one of the longest running dnb weeklies in the world!

Every year we celebrate not just our anniversary, but the people who have come out every week, kept the night alive, and built Elements' unique family. This is an extra special party, and we plan to celebrate by, among other things, giving the last 10 years of drum n' bass a once-over. See you on the dancefloor!

The agenda:

Lenore & Crook on the decks
VJ Bonk on video
Elements photo retrospective by Leah Cooper
t-shirts by Jasone Arnone aka the Curious Spy
admission gets you a raffle ticket for a set of Sony MDRV700 DJ phones and other prizes
and a pre-party too!!!
stay tuned...

Welcome to Beantown Boogie Down!

Greetings! You're looking at what will hopefully be a neat little future blog site I'm putting together highlighting the dance music scene in the Boston and greater New England area. Once I get things up and running, what I am hoping to accomplish is to make this a place where I can help promote my friends' events around the area, showcase both the production and DJ work of many local artists (including myself), as well as spread the word on some neat resources and sites I find during my ventures on the web. It will take a bit to fully get this place established but there will be a lot of cool content and plenty of updates to keep things interesting. 

Here's the breakdown of what the preliminary sections of this site are going to be:

Main page will be an active billboard of events around the area, both relating to dance music as well as bands that I'm digging, that will include flyers and full info. Any events I check out and take pics of I will definitely be uploading them as separate posts in this section.

Featured Mixes // A spot that will highlight DJ mixes that I have recorded throughout the years, as well as other local DJ's and any cool mixes I find online that I think people need to hear! Mixes will include house, drum & bass, techno, dubstep, garage, hip hop, and everything in between.

9:59 // This section will include videos of me throwing down quick ten-minute mixes of tunes, both new and old, that have been occupying the front of my flight case. Superstar poses and really expensive sunglasses optional.

Crate Exploratory // I'm showcasing old funk, jazz, rock, and hip hop tunes in this section...stuff I've basically found deep in the vaults of the record shops around town that I initially intended to use as source material for sampling. If it isn't obscure it won't be posted in here!

This Old Mixtape // Dedicated entirely to posting and sharing old school tapes from the 1990s of local DJ's from around the area. NO recent MP3 or CD mixes in here.

Beat Box // The focus here is on music production, especially Ableton Live (my main program of choice for beatmaking). I'm still learning a lot myself so there probably won't be too many helpful tutorials from me initially, but will be linking up cool sites, videos, or samples in this area for the taking.

Happenings // Does exactly what it says on the tin. If you want to get out of the house to check out some festivities, here are some places you can check it out. Dance it up!

Sketchpad // I work full time as an imaging artist and spend a great deal of time learning about the Adobe Suite, particularly Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Flash. Helpful videos get posted here, and I'd like to make this spot more-or-less a large wall to post the work of both myself as well as friends/colleagues.

I also plan on adding sections that will include pics and videos as well.

What you're looking at right now is obviously pretty rough and I've got a fair amount of design tweaking and stuff I need to add as I familiarize myself with the squarespace tools but watch this space over the course of the next couple weeks! And if there is any of your work or events you would like me to add please do not hesitate to contact me.
