Three Reasons to Make It New Tonight

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.

See you tonight!

The Canadian Jackmaster: Seb Diamond

sebdiamond

Seb Diamond will open for Pearson Sound and Jacques Green this year at Together’s secret location show on 5/16. Sub|division, a crew of DJs, producers, dancers & enthusiasts based in Victoria, BC, had nothing but good things to say about Diamond.

Seb has been instrumental in nurturing the amazing environment that has allowed such a diverse and developed scene to spring forth from Quebec’s cultural nerve centre.

Seb Diamond has grown a lot in the last couple years. He started working with Montreal based management company Sofa King Raw earlier this year and became the Canadian rep for Boiler Room. On top of that he has grown as a DJ.

If anything I’ve just gotten a bit more mature in my taste and can contain diverse genres inside focused sets as opposed to the “anything and everything” approach I used to have.

Diamond takes a lot of inspiration from DJs like Jackmaster (also playing at Together), Jacques Greene, and Floating Points. He likes the variety in their sets, mixing the classics and current hits with their own touches.

I really admire DJs that are expressing their personal style and not the (2013 Megamix) of new fabricated genres and fetishized past.

His mix for Sub|division covers his more recent inspirations, which he said have come a lot from American house like Joey Beltram, Spencer Parker and DJ Sneak. He says it’s “a good indicator of what I’d want to be playing in a grimy NY loft.”

Braille at Make it New

Braille

Our man Braille is bringing his driving funky beats to Make it New Thursday, December 5th. No slouch behind the decks Braille puts on quite the show, constantly tweaking and rearranging elements of his live set. Of course his balance between tweaking everything and letting the music talk is very important. His performance on Boiler Room TV is a perfect example of this balance.

This guy has such a great control of dynamics, slowly transitioning from louder more intense movements to softer more chilled out movements. All seamlessly executed.

If you want to learn more about Braille then check out his Resident Advisor profile here.

You can also hit up his facebook page.

And most importantly don’t forget to come to Make it New at Middlesex (located at 315 Mass ave. Cambridge MA). The show goes from 9pm-2am and tickets are $10. Here is the facebook event page. See you there!
