Paint The Whitehouse Black

Well planet Earth, last night history was made. Love has come around at a most critical time. Pride has been restored in the hearts of so many of us who were led astray over eight excruciating years!

Where ever you were when Obama was declared the winner, remember the moment. You’ve witnessed democracy and freedom in its finest hour! We were with close friends in Brookline, MA wishing of course we could be with the crowds in Chicago and wondering which leaders of American house music would be playing a most historic DJ set in the windy city. Incredibly, our girl Beba Knight was at the center of the entire movement last night, at President Elect Obama’s BARBER SHOP of 14 years. Imagine the energy! Check out her story and other Very Deep Thoughts.

So to set things off right, we’re proud to preview some brand new and exclusive music from our good friend Trusme (Prime Numbers, Manchester U.K.). Just because he can’t vote doesn’t mean he can’t contribute to the spirit of the moment! This official remix will be released on Strutt Records in a few weeks.

Amp Fiddler – Paint The Whitehouse Black (Trusme Remix)

Thank you again, to everyone who made this day possible. Remember, together we can make our dreams come true, you just gotta participate! Here’s to four years of positivity and of course GREAT MUSIC!

Pre-WMC Goodies

It’s been way to long since we’ve posted, but that’s because we’ve been busy getting ready for the WMC. What with The Giraffe vinyls arriving, new tunes to finish and a mix of all original material to throw together we haven’t really had much time for posting. We do however, have some articles, interviews and mixes that we’ve been spreading around the planetary interweb the last couple weeks and provide links to below for your enjoyment while we’re busy soaking up some rays, babes, house and techno in the M.I.A.

  • A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of interviewing legendary Detroit musician Amp Fiddler before his performance at the Middle East in Cambridge. The interview was published last week in the Weekly Dig and you can read it online here.
  • We’ve also been getting a ton of great guests through to the Phoenix Landing on Wednesdays, which is great for all electronic music fans in Boston, but also great for everyone anywhere because we often get the chance to interview our guests for the midweektechno blog before they touchdown and then record and post their sets on the midweektechno podcast afterwards. Recent interviews include: Quarion (who’s playing this week), Chris Fortier & Adultnapper and goto the podcast page to hear live mixes from Derek Plaslaiko, Craig Mitchell, Adultnapper and the all the residents, including us 😉
  • You probably heard the recording on the podcast last month, but our dude DJ Gibbz also made a video of our first live performance at the MIT Museum. He did a great job capturing the spirit of the event so check it.

P.S. we’re trying to setup mobile posting so we can send you updates from WMC, but we can’t seem to get it to work. If there are any wordpress experts out there please email me here.
