Mmmmaven Project Comes to an End

In early ’19, the educational initiative will draw the curtain

It is with great cause for celebration that we announce that the Mmmmaven Project–a plan to educate hundreds of people–will conclude with resounding success.

Early in 2019, the project, which is located at 614 Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square, Cambridge will close its doors for good.

We’ve done an amazing thing! For almost seven years, we have kept this project growing. With tremendous support from the community and our instructors as well as the dedication of our students, we’ve been able to give hundreds of people new digital tools to create and mix music.

Our events aren’t going anywhere. The weekly Make It New celebration and annual Together Festival–as well as the other events we produce year round–will continue.

While the physical space will close with honor early next year, the next iteration of this new music movement will take a new form. Stay tuned for the next chapter. It’s coming!

There were many times we couldn’t believe what we had all accomplished together and couldn’t be happier with the many, many people who contributed. We are sure whatever and whoever comes next will be even more awesome. In the meantime, any and all correspondence regarding this future should be directed to alex@mmmmaven.com.

Watch this space. The celebrations and collaborations will continue in perpetuity, and, of course, thank you for the six years of support.

Onward with power,

The entire Mmmmaven Project family

PS: This next round of group classes may be the final chance for anyone looking to expand their talented tool belt with music technology. Is it you? Someone you know? Reach out to become one of the last Mmmmaven Project graduates ever.

DJ Knife Creates 50-Song, Hour-Long Mix

Our beloved DJ instructor DJ Knife is certainly a Boston hero. For one, his Fresh Produce clubnight has brought countless of legends to town and for two, his “Strange Brew” mix CD series has lit up eardrums for thousands.

And now DigBoston, the city’s long-standing alternative weekly, has chosen to shine the light on Fresh Produce 6… his newest mix which was released in collaboration with Down the Road Brewing. (Ironically, using a recipe from the now-sober Knife).

It’s like playing a video game over and over again until you beat it and get it perfect. That’s the only way I can describe it. I’ll probably practice that full hour 30 times.

Read about his Down The Road Brewing IPA at DigBoston.

LISTEN to this astonishing mix that includes everything from LCD Soundsystem to A Tribe Called Quest to Fleetwood Mac to Flying Lotus (!!!)

Party this Saturday!

Resolume 6.1.0 Sync to the DJ

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.

We also have a handful of bug fixes. If you’re using multiply a lot, make sure you peek the warning in the full release notes and then hit that download.

Love technology?

Love art?

So do we:

Alummmmni: DJ Slick Vick


One of our favorite success stories, DJ Slick Vick, keeps climbing the ranks!

Meet Trailblazer Victoria Fernandes via Boston Voyager

It was during college when I realized I wanted to pursue DJing. I loved how music united people and wanted to have the power to set the vibes.

On Her Story:

“I discovered the Mmmmaven Project, a Cambridge-based DJ, and music production school and enrolled in DJ courses. I’ve now been DJing publicly for the last 6 years and I’m enjoying every moment. DJing is not only a passion of mine, it’s my artistic expression and connection to the world.”

On Business:

There’s a continuous learning and growing process with the art of DJing, and I’m still blossoming. It’s always great to reflect back to the beginning, and see how far I’ve come.

On Advice:

Try and surround yourself with like-minded, and inspiring people, who share the same interests/passions as you. Go out and support the events that you believe in and introduce yourself to the people.
