MMMMAVEN DJ Alumni in Action

They take a DJ class and then after 2 short months we release them “into the wild”.  The idea behind our DJ classes is to get aspiring artists ready to play in a variety of different settings and to give them the confidence and skills to play any gig of their dreams.

Recently, we checked in with some alums and asked them what were some of their favorite or most memorable gigs since they finished their time here at MMMMAVEN. Here is what they had to say.

“House Of Blues gig for the Big Brother Big Sisters Big Night event back in January. I played for about 1000 people alongside Misterwives, Saint Motel, and Matoma to help raise money for BBBSMB.”

Flow Trigger

“I am super pumped to have played at Dancing on the Charles on Sat 6/9! It was really the event that got me into the Boston music scene in the first place, so will be incredible to experience it from behind the decks”

Azurely

“Royale Nightclub on St. Patty’s Day. It was my first time playing there and by the end of my set it was a full house. People were so engaging and responding to my tunes that it made it feel like a great connection and energy type of thing.”

NOHA

“DJing New Years Eve 2018 at Harborside Lounge in Faneuil Hall”

GUZZALINA

“I have been lucky enough to participate as a musician in many protests that have occurred, especially since the most recent presidential election. I have played in front of thousands on both Boston Common and Cambridge Common as part of BABAM, the Boston Area Brigade of Activist Musicians — the most meaningful being the Women’s Marches, the Marches for Science, and the March for our Lives.”

Naaz Tsb

“DJ’ed the I AM BÉL Editorial Party this past Sunday at Warehouse XI in Somerville.”

Nick Ferrington

“I played my first electric Daisy Carnival last weekend! So much fun!!”

“Most Memorable gig: Women in Music fundraiser at Spotify”

J Daniel Delacruz (Schoolyard)

“Most memorable would be a fundraiser I DJ’d for one of the Boston marathon victims a few years back”

CAKEWALK

My most memorable gig was playing at Villa Camilla in Turks & Caicos. The party was to raise money to get a large shipping crate delivered to the island which was turned into a school! This was post hurricane Irma.”

Spinning an LP to Pieces at 12,500fps

Gav and Dan (aka The SloMo Guys) take 1 piece of vinyl and spin it so fast it becomes about 50,000 pieces of vinyl. The results are obviously captured by a very high speed camera.

We can’t show you how to spin quite that fast(!!), but watch as instructor DJ Rugged One shows off the baby scratch.

#MakeItNew Resident Coralcola on Dublab


“Dying Songs” focuses on melancholic electronic music but isn’t limited to that. Sometimes it gets dark, sometimes I try to mix techno awkwardly, sometimes i get nostalgic… I like stuff that’s dreamy, ghostly, pretty and sad. I’ll try out new productions of my own, as well. I’m keeping it pretty open and we’ll see how it evolves.”

Make It New resident DJ Coralcola turned in a dreamy, droney mix for legendary internet radio station Dublab and its long-time resident DNTEL aka Jimmy Tamborello. It includes a few of his own unreleased tracks alongside some folks who have visited Boston over the year… Tracklist is below.
