DJ Knife Creates 50-Song, Hour-Long Mix

Our beloved DJ instructor DJ Knife is certainly a Boston hero. For one, his Fresh Produce clubnight has brought countless of legends to town and for two, his “Strange Brew” mix CD series has lit up eardrums for thousands.

And now DigBoston, the city’s long-standing alternative weekly, has chosen to shine the light on Fresh Produce 6… his newest mix which was released in collaboration with Down the Road Brewing. (Ironically, using a recipe from the now-sober Knife).

It’s like playing a video game over and over again until you beat it and get it perfect. That’s the only way I can describe it. I’ll probably practice that full hour 30 times.

Read about his Down The Road Brewing IPA at DigBoston.

LISTEN to this astonishing mix that includes everything from LCD Soundsystem to A Tribe Called Quest to Fleetwood Mac to Flying Lotus (!!!)

Party this Saturday!

Why You Should Hire a Musician

via The Undercover Recruiter by Anne Fitzgibbon

“As founder and Executive Director of the Harmony Program, an organization that brings music-making into under-served New York City communities, I have seen hundreds of young people develop not only instrumental facility and music appreciation, but also a broad base of life skills that contribute to their long-term success – academically, socially, and professionally.

Our Tech School on SOONish Podcast

Excited to be sharing with you the latest SOONish Podcast: A tech-and-culture podcast from @hubspokeaudio and journalist Wade Roush. “The future is shaped by technology—but technology is shaped by us.”

“We can’t predict what kind of music people will want to make or hear in the future. But judging from the sounds coming out of today’s studios and clubs, it’s a good bet that the tunes of tomorrow will be heavily mediated by digital technology.

This week’s show asks how software has changed the way composers and performers make music, and how our tools for creating music will evolve in the near future.”

We were psyched to get them in touch with alummmni Biyeun who says:

I spent like 5 or 6 hours in [Tresor] and danced until I didn’t have the energy anymore, and it was therapeutic. The music is so powerful it can take you into a completely different state. My initial reaction was: Why haven’t I heard this before?

Listen to Biyeun wax even more philosophically about how she learned to DJ, her tips to success, Vault Boston, and much more…

Even our Co-Founder David Day gets in on the action:

That is your future of music right there: Everyone is a musician, we’re all making music any time, all the time, and all we hear is new music, and it’s from us.

Thank you SOONish!
