With a partner-in-crime (and Mmmmaven grad!) Manv: “VISCERAL is a dance night that takes the audience on a journey through the sensuous and daring sounds of techno and beyond, to release inner impulses and desires into the void.”
Explore the audiovisual and experiential sides of VISCERAL by including mediums of expression that allow artists and creatives to display their work translated in primitive, raw and impulsive ways.
Anyone who knows our Co-Founders Alex and David know they are massive fans of the legendary DJ, label-owner, and champion aesthete Gilles Peterson. Mr. Peterson has led a movement in the UK and around the world for tasteful and eloquent disco, chill-out, afro-beat, grime and who knows what. His taste exceeds many.
Mr. Peterson, in contrast, is a huge fan of Somerville-based label Cultures of Soul. Their latest 12″ includes, in a full-circle, a red-hot remix from Boston’s own Soul Clap.
So when Cultures of Soul head honcho Deano Sounds (who also happens to be a regular at Soulelujah) needed a studio to record a special Boston installment for Worldwide FM, Peterson’s exceedingly tasteful internet radio show, we were more than happy to oblige. Here is the result: four hours of deep African rock, lost Boston jazz, Japanese disco, Gospel, you name it. For more on Deano, Uchenna, and Andre, and the labyrinthine tracklisting, visit the Worldwide website.

“If the Seaboard is an evolution of the piano, let Blocks be an evolution of the drum.”
Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
British music-hardware startup ROLI has just launched its latest product, Seaboard Block, which the company hopes will help it attract more customers who are mainstream, amateur musicians rather than just professionals.
The new device, a £280 ‘super powered keyboard’, is effectively a hybrid of ROLI’s existing products: the Seaboard keyboard which first launched in early 2014, and the Blocks modular music-making devices that debuted in late 2016.
