Boston’s annual Together Festival is in full swing & even though the weather has yet to figure itself out you can at least decide which events to attend this week thanks to another one of @Dan_InAllston’s pristine mixes. (Check his prior exclusive for Vanyaland here.)
Dan begins with a bit of a flashback to a time when the genre of dubstep was unsullied, featuring the bass pressure & meticulous flow crafted by the likes of Pearson Sound as his former alias Ramadanman. You can catch a glimpse of the UK producer this Friday with Jacques Greene (who replaces Martyn) at a Together afterhours event.
The onslaught continues with the song “Just For You” by Untold, a techno/UK Garage feeling tune with remarkable dubstep hints. Untold plays the 5-plus-year running Bassic at Goodlife this Friday.
Local producer, Moldy, is featured in the mix with his impactful “Yo Baby” along with the slick “Poltergeist” producer, Boston-based Prism, who are both playing tonight at Lost in Boston’s showcase event.
Marking the halfway point we have the up & coming Doctor Jeep, a “Badman” indeed. Expect to here more from Vanyaland & him soon. For now, he opens up for the Glasgow native DJ, Jackmaster, & Detroit techno extraordinaire Robert Hood at the Middle East this Wednesday.
Rounding out the half hour we have some outstanding drum & bass from yet another local, Cirrus, with his haunting six-minute track “Looking Away.” There is one more, from the Netherland trio Noisia, with their impressively experimental track “Microorganism.” Their arrival at the long-standing Elements out of Phoenix Landing is much anticipated.
I’d suggest you have a pregame listen or two to this exclusive Together Minimix & hyperloop yourself to as many of these events as you can. Be sure to use this handy interactive Together map as an additional guide (it’s also posted after the Soundcloud and track listing jump).
