4 Amazing Shows Ahead


Here at Mmmmaven, our Co-Founder and Executive Director Alex Maniatis, in league with our Managing Director Polina Starobinets, put on the Make It New weekly party in addition to running the school. Of course, our ridiculous supporting staff is always worth a thanks, high-five, or fist-bump!

But for over thirteen years, the award-winning weekly at the Middlesex Lounge in Central Square, brings in guests from around the world to show off the latest in music technology, beat-making, and general fun-having.

For our students, they get the chance to watch a legend do their thing, and for the wider audience, it’s a chance to see some huge global names in an intimate space with amazing sound.

And in the weeks ahead, 4 opportunities abound.

1) 11/30: Make It New with Patrice Baumel + Pat Fontes

2) 12/7: Make It New with Moscoman + Rebolledo

3) 12/10: Sunday Social Club #1 (New Day Party!) w/ Roman Flugel, Axel Bowman, and Matt Foley

4) 12/14: Make It New with Martyn (Residency), and Avalon Emerson

See you on the dancefloor!

A Night w/ Patrice Baumel At #MakeitNew

Sonic Agenda’s Elan Rochbert, a classically-trained musician, came to Make It New on March 31st to see Patrice Baumel. Suffice it to say, he was impressed.

Make it New has stood strong against the storm of commercial EDM for years, showcasing phenomenal up-incoming talent and hosting some of the most influential names in underground music.

Patrice Bäumel brought us on a voyage through planes of existence. One moment the music was a throbbing heartbeat of percussion, compelling my feet and hips to move. The next moment it would shift, lifting the overwhelming drums and replacing them with harmonies like velvet.

For more in-depth coverage of the evening–including high praise for our resident DJs Coralcola and Baltimoroder–click through to Sonic Agenda. Follow Elan on Twitter: @ERochbert.

Patrice was on tour celebrating his newest mix for the Balance series. More info on that here.

#MakeItNew with Patrice Baumel [3/31]

First it was “Roar,” a completely mangling and brutal track from the minimal days. Sounding as if a broken weed whacker had been thrown into the middle of the club–the snarling, bass-free corker got the attention of the entire worldwide underground.

Baumel never looked back.

He eventually became a huge player and resident at Trouw which, after Berghain, might have been #2 in the “world’s greatest clubs” listicle. (RIP)

It would be a tremendous waste of space to list all the labels he’s released with but think of your favorite modern music label: Yep. That one.

Bäumel infuses his productions and dj sets with lots of energy and a sense of adventure, creating a sound that is satisfies the mind as well as the body.

This is a special edition of #MakeItNew as it is an official previews of his mix CD for the mighty Balance series.

Among the artists featured are Plastikman, Throwing Snow, Jon Hopkins, Underworld (remixed by Bäumel for one of the mix’s exclusive tracks), M83 and Nils Frahm. Check out a preview of the mix below.

See you there.

Come early for a special opening set from Coralcola.

Baumel never looked back.

He eventually became a huge player and resident at Trouw which, after Berghain, might have been #2 in the “world’s greatest clubs” listicle. (RIP) Around the world he continues to shake up clubs, with mixes like this intense, and dark masterpiece DJ set, recorded live at Burning Man.

It would be a tremendous waste of space to list all the labels he’s released with but think of your favorite modern dance music label: Yep. That one.
