It’s pretty hard to top a sunset cruise around Boston harbor, but FreakquenSea is bound to blow your average cruise out of the water. In order to properly release their new EP entitled Freakquency, The Zebbler Encanti Experience has organized a music-filled cruise alongside LostInSound and Mmmmaven. The Zebbler Encanti Experience will be bringing song their brand new live setup, as well as a giant A/V screen setup that can be seen from the shore. Get your tickets here.
Don’t get any ideas, because the lineup aboard the ship is not one to miss. Jeff Mission, Schlang, and Camp Lamp will all be holding down their respective decks until the party heads ashore to Wonder Bar in Allston. A free bus will take you right to the after party featuring The Human Experience. Tickets are on Eventbrite here.
This isn’t the first time Mmmmaven’s crossed paths with The Zebbler Encanti Experience, in fact our Ableton class curriculum was created by the Berklee alum Encanti.
He also taught several of our first Ableton classes, and Mmmmaven would not be the same without him.
As long as you’ve got $25 and a 21+ ID, there’s nothing holding you back from a beautiful summer night filled with stunning electronic sights and sounds. Get your tickets at Eventbrite and get ready to set sail!
1. Distal is proud to leave genre behind
The 28-year-old Distal has developed a signature style that traverses genres, moods and styles. His sets touch on everything from techno to jungle and break-core, and beyond. A scientific background in the research of Synesthesia adds yet another unique angle to his work.
2. It’s May 6th, but you can still celebrate Star Wars Day
Proud to embrace a bit of geeky heritage, Distal dropped a new Star Wars-themed track on Tuesday that references both Baltimore club music and Episode IV. Give it a listen and be on the lookout for it tonight, as Distal calls it “a fun interlude between the more serious club tracks” in his DJ set.
3. It’s a Music Ecology revival
Music Ecology has long held down the Tuesday night slot at Allston’s Wonder Bar, and its resident DJs Alex Russo and Dabu will keep the tradition alive with opening sets tonight.
All this for an $8 cover? It’s true. Check the Facebook event for more details, and get to Wonderbar at 9pm tonight.
Boston’s own Prism has been out and about on his Biodigital Jazz tour for the past 4 months, but tonight he’s finally back in town for what’s sure to be a killer show at Allston’s Wonder Bar. Eddy M and M Rivera will round out the bill.
Dave Hanson, better known as Prism, is quickly becoming one of Boston’s most notable and unique producers, focused on an unusual nexus of dubstep and jazz. Hanson is an avowed fan of heady jazz fusion, and that background works its way into his work as a DJ and producer. Tonight, for instance, he’ll be accompanied by saxophonist Dennison Blackett at Wonder Bar.
Hanson discussed his background in jazz (and the myriad details of his extensive recent touring activities) with Dubs Alive last month:
I grew up at that perfect age, 12-13 and 16, those ages always stick in musicians heads for some reason. The music we listen to at that time just has more weight to it and can catch you. And that’s when Napster came out. I’d go to my dad’s house on the weekends, and I didn’t know what he was doing at the time, but I told him about the program and about how you can search, listen and download, and he’d have me look up, like, Alan Holdsworth and I’d find some songs and he’d pick out “Metal Fatigue” or whatever, and he was schooling me. I had no idea, and this went on for years. So eventually all the Jazz Fusion and weird stuff he was into, I got into.
Cover is just $5 at Wonder Bar tonight, so be sure not to miss Prism’s triumphant return from tour.

Tonight, Lost in Sound presents a bill to remember at Allston’s Wonder Bar with Supersillyus, Eelko and Subcreature, plus a special appearance from Bilkwon the Chef.
Brooklyn’s Supersillyus will headline the evening with his signature brand of oddball, kaleidoscopic electro-psych, and Bilkwon will join him to flip some pancakes on stage. No metaphor there, pancakes will literally be flipped.
Plus, you’ll want to get there early for Together Boston alum Eelko‘s unique take on glitch and future bass and the “lush rhythmic dub soundscapes” of Subcreature.
It all starts at 9 p.m. at Wonder Bar, and cover is just $7. More details at the Facebook page, but when there’s three innovative artists and some pancakes involved, what more convincing do you need?
