The one called Durkin loves to grab onto pop jams and even memes and work them into his “Dream Club” repertoire. And now he’s done just that with Young Thug‘s “Danny Glover.”
As he told the Globe last year:
“I never stick to one tempo or anything,” the producer explained the next day after a scant few hours sleep “I thought probably calling it ‘Dream Club’ music would allow me to be all over the place in terms of rhythms and tempos. It’s definitely rooted as much in electronic music as the hip-hop stuff I like.”
With that, here’s his version of “Danny Glover”:
Durkin plays a Mmmmaven Showcase at Lost In Boston, Tuesday April 29th.
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?
London producer Swindle will headline tonight’s Lost in Boston show at Allston’s Wonder Bar, alongside Mmmmaven artist Doctor Jeep. Swindle has been making music since he was a mere 8 years old, and in 2014 he’s one of the most in-demand grime and dubstep producers around. Give a listen to his just-released remix of Zara McFarlane’s “Open Heart” if you need further proof of his talents:
Tickets are just $10 at the door, and the bill also boasts Boston’s The MadMauritian. Stop by and elevate your Tuesday night with some local and international talent.
