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.

Beats By Girlz is a non-traditional, creative and educational music technology curriculum and initiative designed by Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music, Erin Barra.

Built in response to a workshop piloted in 2011 and initially developed at The Lower Eastside Girls Club in NYC, Beats By Girlz is designed to empower young women in music technology by providing them with the guidance, access, tools and role-support to develop their interest (and ultimately their ability to pursue career opportunities) in music production, composition, engineering, etc.
