Music: Creatures of Habit - How We Lustre (SOLAR12007)

Photobucket
Creatures of Habit, is the Disco/House brainchild of our good friend DJ/Producer Brenden Wesley. Comprised of a wild collection of guest players, musical virtuosos and analogue gear whores alike, Creatures of Habit debut “Lustre” on Scottish Cosmic label, Solardisco. Lustre's hypnotic, low-slung bass-line, flirtatious instrumentation and studio wizardry takes us into a cosmic trip starting in Boston, and descending in Brooklyn with Remixes by Runaway and Nick Chacona. I have to say that I'm personally really proud of this release. We've had the opportunity to preview these tracks as Demos some time ago. We are ecstatic to say....it's your turn now.

Joining these two artists at Good Life will be some of the finest local djs/producers devoted to underground dance music. Opening duties will fall to local busy boy John Barera, who holds down a day job in the record business when he's not busy dropping sets all over Boston, Berlin, Barcelona, Brooklyn & beyond. Also on supporting duties me, DJ Coatti Mondi. In room two will be local club kids and electronic music aficionados C&G, who hold down multiple residencies across the city and just opened for techno legend Juan Atkins in February.

This new record marks quite an auspicious debut for Creatures of Habit, and this party promises to be one to remember. Better clear your Saturday schedule, because you might want to sleep in a bit!....And like this wasn't enough...The Red Bull Music Academy will be on Location to Record the Set.

Event: FRANKIE BONES @ Rise

Photobucket
It's only April but it seems already like 2010 has been with us for a long long time. From the Craziness of the the Together Festival to the Insanity that was seeing Juan Atkins, to great performances by Omar S and Traxx, Boston keeps on hosting some of the best DJs, Electronic music has to offer. This time around our friends at Rise and the Casual Encounters crew bring you the legendary Frankie Bones!!! We've been hearing corridor rumors about this for months and it's so great to finally see this happening.

Frankie Bones is by many considered the Godfather of the American Rave. In a time when timing meant everything, the buzz of his early works caught the attention of the rapidly growing scenesters during the Summer Of Love in 1988. A year Later Frankie became the first American to DJ at those legendary Raves. "At 5.30am on the 26th August, 1989 Frankie Bones walked on stage in front of 25,000 people. The event was called "Energy", and was to go down in history. Fueled by this experience Frankie took it upon himself to start a scene in his native Brooklyn. These parties exploded, going from just a handful of people to 5,000 people in a warehouse, on September 19th 1992. These parties gave many of todays most revered DJ/producers their first taste: Sven Vath, Adam "X", Josh Wink, Richie Hawtin, Joey Beltram to name just a few".

For those of you new to the scene and for those who are veterans of the "Rave Days", this Friday is yet another chance to rejoice for the good times that passed and those which are yet to come. Expect Boston's best Soundsystem to lead you into the morning. Never been to Rise? It's on the corner of Berkeley and Stuart....You'll see the line, that's a guarantee. Opening Duties by Alan "the whole show" Manzi. James Gerard, Alex from Queens and Dave Weigner for your delight at the Lounge.
