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!

#MakeItNew Resident Coralcola on Dublab


“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.

Make It New Announces Its Newest Resident DJ: Punisher

Make It New Announces Its Newest Resident DJ: Punisher

To celebrate, the Detroit-bred producer releases an exclusive mix.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — [Cambridge, MA] — Based across the river at Middlesex Lounge, Mmmmaven music night Make It New has put “Boston” on the international map. And now, it is happy to welcome its latest resident DJ: Punisher.

An original gangster of techno, Michelle Herrmann, better known to the masses as Punisher, began her music career back when mix tapes were still popular. She is a Detroit native with over 24 years behind the turntables, synthesizers and drum machines. Michelle was drawn to music and the creative side of life from the beginning. She was fortunate to find her way into the early 90’s Detroit techno scene when the energy was awe inspiring, from that moment Punisher emerged.

As a record aficionado, her preference behind the decks is playing vinyl and her knowledge of records is vast. Her studio tracks are devoted to hardware, analog gear and spontaneous live mix downs.

As a resident of Make It New, expect Herrmann to appear regularly at the Middlesex Lounge. A strong understanding of machines and midi programming allows her to perform powerful, dancefloor-igniting, live PA sets that take you on a journey through hypnotic, cerebral soundscapes. Michelle released her first two records in 1997 on Detroit label Matrix and has since appeared on over 40 different releases on internationally recognized labels including Detroit Underground, Synewave and her own imprint Hej Records.

While mainly focused on techno and house, Michelle has the ability to play across multiple genres. Punisher has performed at clubs and festivals all over the globe, alongside world renowned acts such as Richie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, and The Orb. Michelle will continue to travel where the music takes her in pursuit of musical enlightenment.
