Dancing On The Charles is a deliberate reaction to the people’s desire for a return to grassroots nightlife. Big sound system, great DJs, electronic music, BBQ, dancing outdoors and affordable prices. Thanks to the City Of Cambridge, DOTC returns on June 28th as a benefit for the American Legion and the Charles River Watershed Association!

dj kon is on track

We probably shout our dude Kon out way too much, but whatever, he’s a Boston don and he has a blog now that needs to be checked if you love disco dopeness. Just in time for the weekend he posted this mix he did awhile back. Here’s what he said about it.

“Heres another mix I did a while back, I brought a few of these on cd to Europe..sold some, gave some away. Joints from groups like, Visions of Tomorrow, Grandmaster Lover, Thunderbolt, Hi Fidelity, an exclusive mix of Family of Eves I wanna be loved by you..direct from the masters ! Check it out, plenty of treats on this one. The pic was from Bus Palladium in Paris, I didnt play any Disco (the Disco ball is in full e.f.f.e.c.t. tho!)…I ran alllloooot of hip hop that night, Amir played some funk but heads were not to open off that… As you can see from the pic I still turned it out.”
