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!

Trust us, Trus’me Is Trustworthy (R&F-017)

If you’re still sleeping on Trus’me, its time to wake up! The man has been called “The most interesting and promising producer in the [UK] right now” by BBC radio’s Giles Peterson and with a mind-blowing catalogue of music released on labels like Prime Numbers (his own), Stilove4music, Fat City and shortly on dance music major Defected, its no surprise why. Trus’me is an amalgam of disco, funk and deep house and in a time when electronic and techy sounds seem to set the trend, Trus’me’s music fills in a much needed soulful void. How soulful is Trus’me? How about an almost entirely analog production studio… Check It! Or how about rumored collaboration projects with Amp Fiddler, Kissy Asplund and Boston’s own King Of Digging, DJ Kon! Now thats SOUL!

Ok, enough of us blabbing… here is a LIVE DJ SET recorded by Redbull Music Academy of Trus’me at home in Manchester, UK as well as an awesome video interview courtesy of On-Point TV.

If you like what you hear (of course you do) Trus’me will be performing for us this Saturday, June 14th from 12-2a @ Redline, 59 JFK St Cambridge, MA. This will be his debut Boston performance. Cover is $5 all night, doors @ 9p, 21+

The second installation of Dancing On The Charles summer event series proudly presents a US debut performance of Trus’me (Defected Records, Prime Numbers, UK). BBC radio’s Giles Peterson is calling him “The most interesting and promising young producer in the country [UK] right now” . Trus’me is a disco edit and deep house king and we’re very excited to hear him turn the party out.

It’s also by birthday BBQ so prepare for shenanigans!
