<<<SEE YOU FRIDAY>>>

Learn about music technology from some of the talented women from MMMMAVEN — friends, partners, alumnae, and current students.

This event will feature DJ and live performances, gear demos, Q&As, and general discussions.

Generations of girls have grown up believing technology is not designed for them. Times are a-changing, but for many women that ingrained idea is still true. We want to feature some of our graduates and have them tell you their story and show off their skills.

There will be plenty of awesome music, networking opportunities, refreshments, and fun!

Performances by: Azurely, BEYUN, Dissoule, abco, Guzzalina, Nara DJ, Jayana, Musicisart, C8, DJ Machi

KiNK on the Desperados SoundStage

We’ve always been big fans of KiNK, he’s played #MakeItNew, Together, and whereever else we can get the Bulgarian machine-man on stage. Way beyond DJ, Strahil Velchev melds into his synth machines much like wetware.

So you can rest assured we’re looking forward to this:

Presenting Desperados SoundStage: An interactive musical experiment celebrating the DIY party culture across the globe. Together with KiNK, we created the ultimate live track. #DesperadosDIY #WattTheFrequency

Bonus video! Here’s Sofia’s finest live at Into the Valley:

Make It New Announces 2018 International Residencies

Beautiful Swimmers from DC and British talent Palms Trax land in Boston

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — [Cambridge, MA] — After hosting George Fitzgerald and Martyn for 2017, the Make It New party is announcing two new residencies for 2018: the London-born Berliner Palms Trax and dynamic DC duo Beautiful Swimmers.

The artists will make regular engagements at the Middlesex Lounge throughout the year, bringing their unique perspective on modern music regularly to Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Since his beloved “Cooking with Palms Trax” show on Berlin Community Radio, Jay Donaldson a/k/a Palms Trax has played from South America to Australia. His announcement to settle in Boston for a spell comes with similar engagements in Glasgow and Bordeaux.

Beautiful Swimmers most recently spelled in Boston for Together, holding a record fair in partnership with Martyn and closing the 2017 festival down. Rated 2016’s “Best DJs in the World” by Vice (Thump) Magazine — they earned it by being completely obsessed with finding and releasing, and loving, music. They will be visiting Boston regularly from their home in Washington, DC.

“Make It New already has three great resident DJs,” says Mmmmaven CEO and Make It New booking agent Alexander Maniatis, “but these three really add something totally different.” Having just celebrated 13 years of weekly parties, Make It New is hosted by Polina Starobinets, Managing Director of Mmmmaven (simply pronounced “maven”), the DJ school based up the street in Central Square.

Ari and Andrew (Beautiful Swimmers) are selectors who always… always… play amazing music you’ve never heard before and Jay (Palms Trax) is booked at the world’s best events. We’re are so happy they’ve committed to us for 2018.

The DJs of Make It New, Baltimoroder (Erik Pearson), Coralcola (Mikey Lee), and Mike Swells have recently been highlighted themselves. From the Honey Soundsystem Podcast of DJ Mike Swells to Baltimoroder and Coralcola getting inside international music site Resident Advisor (and gathering 3,500 plays in the process).

It all amounts to a bevy of musical riches to the Greater Boston community.

Palms Trax will begin his sojourn on February 22nd, while the Beautiful Swimmers’ residency launches March 1st, 2018.

As they say: Stay tuned.
