Let’s Get Together

via casstastic

So for the past month or two, my really good friend and supreme advice giver, Chris aka C Dubs, has been up to his eyelids in work putting together a festival within Boston in conjunction with some of Boston’s best venues, producers, promoters, DJ’s, and generally, some of the best people around the East Coast. As one of the founding members of the Bassic night in the Bean, Chris has been dealing with one of Bostons first ever week long electronic music festivals to grace this side of the country. (and oh boy are you guys in for a treat!)

Okay so what exactly IS Together Festival about?
Together: The New England Electronic Music Festival is a multi-venue, multi-party, multi-panel super event uniting not simply genres of music, but entire scenes once thought to be disparate. The city of Boston provides a unique platform as well, with its enormous student population, numerous technology centers and differing types of venues.

Together Boston will reach thousands of personalities within the mixing generation. As The New England Electronic Music Festival we will touch on not just dance music, but the emerging technologies of electronic music production. By involving different groups—from the most senior avant-garde lovers to the youngest members of this new sound, this is the genesis of a new era of collaboration and innovation for the New England arts, technology and music communities.”

If you have a love of dance music, or are even just a tad interested in the emerging new sounds that have been so heavily changing the music industry, you wont want to miss the events of this week long party. So dust your dancing shoes off and brace yourself…

This time they teamed up with Major Lazer to produce a 40 min mix, with artists including: Major Lazers, Switch & Crookers, Leftside, Ninjasonik & even an Ace of Base remix! You can download the mix here and also, purchase the Keep Watch Vol. X: Major Laser T-Shirt here!

The second mix I wanted to share with you, is “Human Nature” mixed by our good friend and prior host of the Live @ LAB radio show- DJ C-Dubz. The mix is about 100 mins long and includes tracks by: RamadanMan. Clouds, EL B, Scuba and more. You can download the full mix for free here.

L.A. Fetish with Lana

During my most recent trip to L.A. I visited the Bordello club which was hosting a sexy, fetish Burlesque show featuring the lovely Emily Marilyn in a full latex ensemble. Also, on stage was Pyra Sutra who set the stage, and quite literally her nipples on fire.  The Petrojvic Blasting Company was the opening band before the show, and in my opinion was the real talent of the night. If you ever get the chance to see them you should definatly check them out. These guys sang, and played multiple instruments…. even playing the drums with their heels. What?!  Speaking of heels, I discovered this amazing Insa piece on the exterior wall of a tattoo shop in Venice.  Love those legs!
