Armand Tomorrow!

Just wanted to remind all you New England residents that tomorrow there’s a huge outdoor electronic music extravaganza at the Marina Bay Beach Club, just south of Boston. Soul Clap’s opening for all-time house luminaries Junior Sanchez & Armand Van Helden and in honor of this momentous occasion it seemed appropriate to repost some of our favorite Armand moments from the Soul Clap Blog. Listening to these jams again got us fired up for tomorrow and hopefully you will be too, so go get your discount advance tickets now!

After going through these old posts I realize how much more old Armand vinyl must be shared, so expect more treats soon 🙂

8/23 DOTC DJ Sets Are Here!

If they say there’s no such thing as [cough] bad publicity [cough] then it appears we’ve finally arrived. Big shout to the haters for investing time and money into our promotional efforts! Nice doo doo guys, way to keep it clean and classy.

NOW, to all you wonderful folks who came to D.O.T.C. on 8/23: THANK YOU! You’re probably tired of hearing us always say that we can’t do it without you, but it’s so damn true. It makes us so psyched to have these crazy outdoor dance parties (in Boston/Cambridge no less) that we have to keep saying it over and over again so you know how serious we are. Last Saturday couldn’t have been a more beautiful summer night and despite some technical difficulties with the sound (sorry for that) the recordings of the sets finally came out right. Thanks again to all and especially these guys, some of Boston’s best DJs for holding it down just right. Enjoy!

12a-1a – Caseroc rocks, listen for special treats at end of the night!

The FINAL DOTC of 2008 takes place on Saturday, September 20th. Tanner Ross, Soul Clap, Sergio Santos, Randy Deshaies, Matty Dimond and Mr. Techno himself Pat Fontes will all rock a seemingly endless 4 turntable 2 mixer house/techno barrage to keep you moving. Hope to see everyone there and believe: we WILL BE BACK in 2009!

Episode 36: Matty Dimond Sets The VIBE

Every once and a while there comes along a DJ that has SUCH INCREDIBLE PROGRAMING strength, that they leave the rest of the punters staring at their music collection wondering why they hadn’t thought of playing like that years ago. Boston based Matty Dimond is THAT DJ, take a listen to his mix and you’d swear you were listening to Dixon, Trickski, maybe even an old Mark-E mix. Deep, sophisticated, dance music for grown folks!

Matty is also one half of The Bald and The Beautiful outfit along side Tanner Ross. His production appears on labels such as Odori and Utensil.

Tracklist:
Quiet Village “Victoria’s Secret”
Recloose “Deeper Waters”
Soulphiction “Dark Berry”
Nomumbah “Like A Rainbow” Dub
LCD Soundsystem “All My Friends” Harvey Mix
Quiet Village “Can’t Be Beat”
Mark E “Fighter”
Lexx “El Sueno Lucido”
Soulphiction “Prison Song”

Episode 35: Inanna, Goddess Of Love & War

The words I chose for the title of the latest episode of the podcast are either really appropriate or not appropriate at all. I think they really fit the musical stylings of this deep, moody and melodic techno mix that Inanna turned our for us, but after knowing her for so many years I can’t really say that I would use a word that implies violence when describing Jamie’s personality. I guess it’s more her love of electronic music that makes the name Inanna fit so well, because she’s been around long enough to say she played garage and 2-step with me at Runnin’ Fridays and countless other ghetto New England area events. These days she’s busy showcasing her more mature brand of techno on ear catching original tracks, her own label (La Folia Recordings) and of course, right here on The Adventures Of Soul Clap! For more on Inanna make sure to check the interview on Midweek Techno.

Tracklist
Replica – Difuzor – La Folia Recordings
Lost Tape – Trickski – Sonar Kollektiv
Morning Sun – Amtek E Freak – Punk’iD Digital
Cloudy Bay – Martin ButtRich – Poker Flat
Belize – Anja Schnieder – Mobilee
The World Inside – Inanna – La Folia Recordings
Asha – Pantha Du Prince – Dial Records
L Arnuque – Reynold – Persona

minitek/AirDrop Remix Competition

Ever since the announcement in May that the folks who throw the awesome minimoo parties in New York City were organizing a full on electronic music festival, the mothership has been abuzz with excitement for the long overdue birth of the northeast U.S.’s first such event. Now as the date of minitek electronic music and innovation festival fast approaches (8/12-8/14), the festival has teamed up with our good friends over at AirDrop to present a competition to remix AirDrop artist and minitek performer Fase Miusic Sender‘s latest single on the label, Lejano Oeste. Even more exciting? We’re helping judge the competition! We haven’t been that impressed with any of the submissions so far, so all you producers get your versions in by September 3rd and if we like it, your remix will be released on AirDrop.

P.S. minitek is releasing a new exclusive podcast each week leading up to the festival and this is the 6 week one that Fase did.

mixTape Time 15: Adultnapper @ Midweek Techno


Adultnapper is made of wood

After Cnyce revisited that mental DJ Three mix yesterday I figured it would only be fair to make sure Adultnapper gets some shine too. Those of you that follow techno in Boston probably witnessed Mr. Napper’s masterful set at Phoenix Landing on Wednesday, February 20th, but may not have gotten a chance to check out the recording of the mix. Well it’s been up on the Midweek Techno blog for awhile now, but here it is again for you. I also had the chance to do an email interview before the event, sure maybe it’s not as in depth as this one, but there’s alot of good info in there. See you at Radioland.

What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been

Phew. After almost 3 weeks with no updates you’re probably wondering what the heck happened to us, and the answer is Israel. We spent 2 weeks in the motherland, traveling, meeting people and experiencing Tel Aviv’s nightlife firsthand and needless to say it was both rejuvenating and inspiring. Now that we’re finally back we have tons of new music, events and press to share with you. So here goes…

mixTape Time 14: DJ Three @ The Guggenheim, NYC

So in anticipation of DJ THREE’s performance alongside fellow NYC Techno megalith ADULTNAPPER at RADIOLAND, this Friday 8/15/08 @ The Estate, we dug deep into the iTunes library to pull out this programing GEM. If only we could have been at NYC’s Guggenheim back in September of 2006 to see Three and Miles Maeda perform DJ magic. I never heard Maeda’s portion of the night, but DJ Three’s stayed secured in my iPod for almost a year. He starts off with ambience and builds upwards, perhaps in homage to the museums endlessly spiraling interior? Oh, yeah if anyone can ID the tune played about 43 minutes in I would deeply appreciate it!
