Episode 137: Agents Of Vibe

You know we have a soft spot for our home town. From our annual Dancing On The Charles compilation of Boston producers, to the now 10 year running Dancing On The Charles party that gave the comp its name, to Thanksgiving eve at The Phoenix Landing, we always make sure to stay connected to our roots. So when new a new crew of artists starts making waves we pay attention and make sure to give our full support. Enter Agents Of Vibe.

The Agents Of Vibe originated as a production duo comprised of core members, Wiggz Caro and Zachary (Mr Don) Fochi. They were then joined by Boston producer, multi-instrumentalist and incredible vocalist, Matt Carey and often features friends/musicians from their extended Boston family. Their track Baluum was included on this year’s D.O.T.C. comp and they’re sitting on a vault of unreleased music, but their “live” experience is what you really need to see. Wiggz is a multi-instrumentalist Berklee Graduate and Ableton Live teacher/wizard at MMMMAVEN school in Boston. Zak, holds down the 1’s and 2’s and Matt Carey adds live vocals, synths, percussion and whatever new gadget he’s got his hands on.

This is their “Summer hang-out mix”, recorded live with Zak mixing, Matt Carey on vocals and synth, and Wiggz on guitar and ableton push. Enjoy 🙂

Episode 122: K Civ’s Soul Cast

Last month we dropped a beautiful edit EP from one of our favorite Boston DJs, K Civ. Now we bring you a podcast so you can hear why we love him so much! A nice little smooth out soul cast mix. An eclectic soul tickler mix, full of unreleased edits/mixes along with some serious dance floor grooves.

Here’s a little more from his bio:

For nearly 20 years K Civ (aka DJ KC Hallett) has brought healing, empowerment and joy to many lives through music. K Civ’s passion with music began as a dance enthusiast who traveled hundreds of miles from all over New England and NY frequenting many venues including “The Loft” in Boston and “Shelter” in New York City. However an injury which could have been perceived as a misfortune actually was the opportunity for a transition that allowed him to manifest his love of music by bringing it to others. He started collecting and mixing records to keep him involved with the music he loved. It started with just Deep House music but has branched out into many genres of music. As he stays true to the House music sound he also has a love for Jazz, R&B soul, D&B, Techno, Reggae, Disco Classics, Global Soul, etc.

K Civ moved to Boston from New Hampshire in 1998 and started focusing on his DJ career. To help with his initiation into the craft of being a DJ, K Civ worked in three record stores in Boston (Biscuithead, Boston Beat and Satellite records) and spun at numerous venues from Boston to New York. K Civ is well known for being a resident DJ at Soul Revival, which was Boston’s longest running dance party. Soul Revival was noted by both Rolling Stone and Urb Magazine as one of the hottest dance parties in the US. He has also spun with plenty big name DJs in the business (see shared bookings).

Tracklist
1. Charles Earland “Coming To You Live” (intro)
2. Bosq feat. Nicole Willis “Bad For Me” (late night dub)
3. D’Angelo “Betray My Heart” (k civ mix)
4. Eddie Palmieri “Yoruba Chant” (k civ edit)
