My Space Tuesday: San Serac

If you haven't noticed, here are Manifest Destitute we kinda like to expose you to some sweet electronic music. The scene in Boston has grown enormously over the past 6 years, and it's definitely a scene that continues to solidify and gain mainstream popularity. Because we care and support this scene, we'll try to highlight every Tuesday the players and talents that make our beloved Boston Dance again.

To start this off let us introduce you to San Serac, an artist whose love of Funk and all things drum machine landed him a spot in Trevor Jackson's Cult Label Output. You know the man's got skills when he's lined up in the same roster as Blackstrobe and the legendary Yello. I caught San Serac the first time at Great Scott's two years ago and was amazed by the sound of his one-man army. It was an electrifying performance for a man whose battalion was composed of a synth, a drum machine and enough charisma to keep a party going on. In a time when the fashion is to wear New Era hats and neon shades, San Serac brings to the stage the elegance that most DJ's wish they had. As far as music goes, who said the 80's were dead? Having toured with pals Chromeo and the Junior Boys, San Serac was the one who clearly fit in the big shoes Brian Ferry left to fill. After his single Tyrant was released on Output, San Serac released Professional last year, an album which received much acclaim from the specialized press. Recently San Serac's been filling vocal duties on a new project called Stereo Image with Junior Boys founding member Johnny Dark. Their first release Stereo Image S/T is due this spring as they prepare to tour later this year. Keep on the lookout for this one...his glory days are about to begin.
