George Fitzgerald and Martyn Announce #MakeItNew Residency

George Fitzgerald via Facebook — A while ago, the first promoters to ever book me in the US were the Make It New (Mmmmaven) guys. Flying into Boston for the first time and playing at a random bar on the other side of the river in Cambridge was all a bit of a leap in the dark for me at first. But there’s a reason why I’ve kept going back and so many other great artists do. From the crowd to the people behind the scenes, the vibe is special. Alex and I have been talking about doing a residency at the party for ages, so I’m happy to say we finally got our act together and made it happen! The first night will be on 27th April and every quarter after that. To say I’m excited would be an understatement.

Make It New Announces Two Int’l Residencies

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — [Cambridge, MA] — Throughout its now 13-year history, Make It New, the weekly party at Central Square’s Middlesex Lounge, has never announced an official partnership with international guests.

Until now.

George Fitzgerald and Martyn are two producers who are quite familiar with Make It New, having both slotted numerous appearances under their respective belts. But now, the musicians are proud to ally themselves officially with the Cambridge institution.

What this means is both will play the venue regularly throughout the year, as much as four times annually, along with curating the experience with their own distinct tastes and musical curation.

“We already have three accomplished regional resident DJs: Baltimoroder, Coralcola, and Mike Swells,” explains Mmmmaven Executive Director Alexander Maniatis, “but adding these two in an official capacity puts our weekly party on a whole new and international level.”

Both Fitzgerald and Martyn have released critically-acclaimed full-length albums, plus play routinely to excited fans around the world. These crowds gather at the world’s top clubs: Fabric, Berghain/Panorama Bar, De School, Nitsa, and The Warehouse Project. Naturally, they both own their own labels as well: Man Make Music and 3024, respectively. Each represents a different type of vibe with the same mission: To keep sound at the forefront, developing and recreating music, with an emphasis on fresh. Of course, this is the very essence of the night called Make It New.

“We’ve worked hard to officially partner with two of them–two very considerable crowd favorites, for sure–and are happy to welcome them with regularity,” says Maniatis. “With these two, most importantly, you never know what to expect.”

Except brilliance.

From BBC Radio 1 to acclaimed collaborations, from chart-topping singles to boundary-bashing LPs, Fitzgerald and Martyn officially add considerable weight to Make It New’s already regular heft.

As they say: Stay tuned.

Make It New with Beautiful Swimmers [12/15]

For the description of week’s #MakeItNew event, we thought we’d just leave it to the wordsmiths at Resident Advisor.

If you’re ever feeling down on dance music, go to a Beautiful Swimmers gig.

Andrew Field-Pickering (AKA Max D) and Ari Goldman have been going back-to-back since the late ’00s, and they’re among the most animated DJs in the game, hammering home the fun and physicality of their selections by dancing and wearing ear-to-ear smiles.

They’re also serious record collectors—when they’re not traveling, Goldman and Field-Pickering work in record stores, and their time spent in the bins shows in their sets. Over the years, the duo have used house music as a foundation to explore Baltimore club, jungle, post-punk and other unclassifiable delights.

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves 😀

Make It New with Leon Vynehall [9/29]

“House music with the heart of a singer/songwriter” — Resident Advisor
“[Rojas] shows how a sweaty, pheromone-filled dance floor can also double as paradise.” — NPR Music
“An artful blend of punchy and plush.” — Pitchfork

The romantic beat of Leon Vynehall’s music has garnered acclaim from a wide variety of sources because his music appeals to more than the feet. And people noticed.

But Vynehall isn’t a DJ, though he does that very well. He isn’t a producer, although that is what he does. And he’s certainly not an “electronic” artist, though how he creates is very techno-savvy.

As he told RBMA: “I don’t see myself as a house musician; I’m just a musician”

Make it New With Martyn [THU 2/25]

MINwMartyn
Apart from being a ravenous hockey fan, prescription you know Martijn as a music producer whose appetite for sound hardly has any borders. Throughout the many layers of his winding 16+ years in electronic music, tadalafil Holland native (now Washington DC resident) Martijn Deijkers, viagra 40mg aka Martyn, has always stood in a genreless scene of his own.

Though his influences are wide-ranging, Martyn’s music is deeply inspired by the futuristic and melodic aspects of Detroit and Chicago. His rhythmically diverse sound floats across D&B, dubstep and various strains of bass music, just as smoothly as it traverses house and techno, and encompasses abstract ambient soundscapes. Based on musicality and energy in equal parts, Martyn’s layered tracks are a rapt exploration of melancholy, futurism and dancefloor hypnotism.

Martyn is a human manifestation of our mission: to constantly revisit the past and mine its inspirations for future sound and thought. By dancing from genre to genre, his productions refuse to be categorized, and his DJ sets, which often feature his vast array of work, carry the same sense of intrigue and exclusivity.

Paired with our own sonic time traveller, Coralcola, this will make for an immense night of new aural extremes and old friends.
