As we have told you, the residency of Palms Trax at Make It New is a super big deal. This week, we are adding to that super big deal the extraordinary legend that is Chicago’s Derrick Carter.
Derrick Carter is widely acknowledged as one of the better DJs in the world.
With innovative productions, flawless technical skills and an effortlessly joyful attitude of rocking a crowd, his influence has infiltrated throughout the spectrum of dance music. Although known as one of the key players of Chicago’s house music wave in the ’90s, Derrick Carter began DJ’ing at the age of nine, spinning disco records at family reunions.
“So many people come up to me and say, ‘Man, I had the worst day. My girlfriend left me, I locked my keys in my car, but you turned me for two hours, and that made me able to get up in the morning.’ That’s the best thing going.”
In 1988 Derrick, fellow DJ Mark Farina, and friend Chris Nazuka released an EP as the group Symbols & Instruments.
Tonight we have a special debut at our weekly party with Bradley Zero. The question you might ask is: Why go out on a Thursday night? Here are three…
1. Bradley Zero is known for his overwhelmingly positive and delightful sets of disco and house vibes.
In case you’re into that sort of thing…
2. You can say “I saw Bradley Zero back when…”
Just like Bob Moses or Flume (or, well, many, many others) …
Bradley helped shape Boiler Room into the world conquering institution that it is today, helping steer it in a multitude of musical directions to shine light on the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Mood Hut, Beautiful Swimmers, Jan Schulte, Nils Frahm, Jay Daniel and countless other underground heroes whose music had yet to reach a wider audience.
3. Thursday nights are for the professionals
Maybe the best feeling we have after 13 years of throwing one of the longest-running weekly parties in the world, is the ride home. Driving/cycling/riding through the almost empty Boston streets, listening to something like opening resident Coralcola, is special.
“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.
