So, you’ve taken the classes, you bought the equipment, you know your way around the Serato box, you’re ready to be a give a great performance, right?
Wrong. You’ve only fought part of the the battle. The other part of performance is knowing how to read the room. You don’t want to be “that guy” who plays Kygo when the room is ready to turn up, and Skrillex when everyone just wants to chill. It’s important for a DJ to understand his/her audience, and this Friday, Fens can teach you how.
Fens is a Boston resident and Connecticut native who’s been appearing at popular clubs, concert venues, and parties for about four years now. His experience with instrumental music shines through in the musicality of his tracks and the obvious thought he puts into the way everything goes into his music.
[…] his forward thinking bass music and cutting edge techno and house sounds are a perfect companion to head-bobbing and dancing like nobody’s watching.
Fens is the co-founder of Banana Peel Records. He has performed in venues throughout Boston and New York such as Middlesex Lounge, Goodlife, House of Blues, Le Poisson Rouge, and Brighton Music Hall, and has opened for artists like Objekt, Pangea, L-Vis 1990, Christian Martin, Machinedrum, SBTRKT and many more. You can even catch him on Wednesday nights from 7-9p.m. on WZBC 90.3FM.
Get a taste of his music with his first installment of CSC’s new mix series:
This Friday, April 17, at 7pm Fens will be teaching a free workshop at Mmmmaven on Reading the Room: a Lesson in Crowd Literacy. For all you performers out there, you really won’t want to miss it! Reserve your place on eventbrite.
