Make It New with Antal [3/16]

Antal isn’t just a DJ’s DJ. He’s a guru’s guru.

Or, if you will: A maven’s maven.

At the beating heart of the Rush Hour empire, a Dutch institution that includes a distribution network and a record label but, first and most importantly, as a record store.

Rush Hour Records was founded with an incontrovertible love of new music, of all genres, and of all types. And now, after booking artist after artist that was inspired by, or signed to, or distributed by, the Rush Hour network we finally get to celebrate with its co-founder and leader. (See his recent feature at Resident Advisor, called “The Art of the DJ“)

We’ve said this before but this time we mean it: Expect the unexpected.

One look at his SoundCloud will show you why: South African Jazz, Brazil, African Cut-Up, Suriname Disco, Turkish Psych…

Make It New with Catz ‘N Dogz [1/26]

It’s nice when the right people find success for the right reasons, and that pretty much sums up the story of Grzegorz and Wojciech.

This tour finds them headlining Igloofest with their friend Eats Everything, playing the Playa Del Carmen with “Friends of Pets” Kim Ann Foxman, Honey Dijon, and TILL VON SEIN. Their RA feature is titled “Friends That Will Carry You Home.”

Do you sense a trend? These two have lots of friends.

Come find out why.

Make It New with Anja Schneider

Starting in 2000 with the Dance Under the Blue Moon, Berlin’s longest-running underground radio show, Anja Schneider has left an indelible and authentic mark on the music capital’s scene. Then with Mobilee, one of its most beloved labels, she made allies with Solomun, H.O.S.H., Pan-Pot and many more.

Labels she’s touched? PIAS, Crosstown Rebels, DIYNAMIC MUSIC,‎ Get Physical Music, etc. The creme de la creme. Need anymore convincing to make it out? Try her landmark Essential Mix of 2014, which crescendoed with the seminal “Computer Love.”

Once famously dubbed a “perpetual motion machine,” Ms. Schneider’s DJ sets, full of originals and remixes you might never get the chance to hear again, will leave you nothing short of

breathless.

Artists Visiting Boston Gain Year-End Acclaim

As we wrap up 2016, we were psyched to see some of our guests rack up the GRAMMYs, even an Oscar or two, but then came the year-end lists, and, suffice it to say, our squad made a lot of waves, starting with The Black Madonna, who was awarded Mixmag’s DJ of the Year.

…if dance music, and society in general, is far from a utopia, to be at the front of a Black Madonna gig is to be transported somewhere far better. Buried among the sweaty, jubilant mass – there’s lots of girls, but guys too – it’s impossible not to feel The Black Madonna loving each and every one of us right back.


When the Resident Advisor polling was complete, we had to get out the whiteboard: 94, 92, 90, 87, 84, 77, 69, 67, 60, 59, 52, 51, 50, 48, 46, 32, 30, 23, 21, 19, 10, 9, 8, 2… 24 out of 100 had come through our neck of the woods.

Previous #CambMA guests also racked up tracks of the year nominations in Avalon Emerson, Floorplan (aka Robert Hood and his daughter Lyric), Project Pablo, and Midland.


Over the years, much of the focus in the new music world has fallen on the “Live” act, and here we’ve also been able to pivot towards giving you that live experience. Of the Top 40, we’re psyched to have had a hand in 10, including #2 (Recondite) and the continually chart-topping #1 KiNK:

Not to be overlooked, Vice’s Thump channel named Beautiful Swimmers–who only played here a few weeks ago–as their “DJs of the year.”

As the B2B becomes an increasingly commodified trope in club culture—utilized broadly to pad out festival lineups with as many names as possible—Beautiful Swimmers also showcase the transformative power collaborative selectors can have when they get it right.
