►Last week, I sat down with David Day, who is the co-founder of Mmmmaven, an electronic music school and Together Boston, an annual festival that combines music, technology, and art for an interview at Mass Apparel.
►During our convo, we discuss MMMMaven, Boston’s electronic music scene, the re-emergence of disco, how Together Boston has evolved over the years, the music business, his life long mission of “keeping music as relevant as possible,” and more.
We have always been big fans of Resolume, which, in many ways, is the VJ software component of Serato. Here is their latest update about 6.1.0:
The 6.1.0 release is a major point release, which means we added a big feature. As we announced a few weeks ago, we made it a lot easier to sync a prepared video set to the audio coming from the DJ.
If you work with a DJ that mixes on a Denon setup, you can now line up every video in Resolume to every track on the players. You can read all about the what’s and the how’s in the manual. Suffice to say, this will make banging out those DJ intros and special show moments a piece of cake.
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.
