The Underground is Massive: A Conversation with Michaelangelo Matos
Join us in a special conversation with noted author and journalist Michaelangelo Matos. April 28 sees the release of his new 400-page book The Underground is Massive: How Electronic Dance Music Conquered America

6pm: Q&A with David Day (Together Boston, DigBoston) and Michaelangelo Matos 
7pm: Book signing and questions in the Happn Recharge Lounge

The richly researched, vividly detailed chronicle that America’s electronic dance culture has long deserved.”
– SIMON REYNOLDS, author of Energy Flash /Generation Ecstasy

“Like seeing a familiar face in your family as if for the first time — to finally appreciate the depth of their genius and the scope of their struggle, and to revel in their triumph.”
— DAN CHARNAS, author of The Big Payback: The History of The Business of Hip-Hop

“For a novice like me, The Underground is Massive provided a necessary, nuanced explanation of a global subculture going mainstream . . . a graceful, nimble writer.” – AMANDA PETRUSICH, author of Do Not Sell at Any Price: The Wild, Obsessive Hunt for the World’s Rarest 78rpm Records

“Anyone who cares even a little about music will love this book . . . Michaelangelo Matos tells these hidden histories with the love, care and joy of a seasoned mage passing down spells to a trusted novice . . . a genuine service to history.”
-JOHN DARNIELLE, the Mountain Goats; author of Wolf in White Van.

About The Underground is Massive:

Joining the ranks of Please Kill Me and Can’t Stop Won’t Stop comes this definitive chronicle of one of the hottest trends in popular culture—electronic dance music—from the noted authority covering the scene.

It is the sound of the millennial generation, the music “defining youth culture of the 2010s” (Rolling Stone). Rooted in American techno/house and ’90s rave culture, electronic dance music has evolved into the biggest moneymaker on the concert circuit. Music journalist Michaelangelo Matos has been covering this beat since its genesis, and in The Underground Is Massive, charts for the first time the birth and rise of this last great outlaw musical subculture.

Drawing on a vast array of resources, including hundreds of interviews and a library of rare artifacts, from rave fanzines to online mailing-list archives, Matos reveals how EDM blossomed in tandem with the nascent Internet—message boards and chat lines connected partiers from town to town. In turn, these ravers, many early technology adopters, helped spearhead the information revolution. As tech was the tool, Ecstasy—(Molly, as it’s know today) an empathic drug that heightens sensory pleasure—was the narcotic fueling this alternative movement.

Full of unique insights, lively details, entertaining stories, dozens of photos, and unforgettable misfits and stars—from early break-in parties to Skrillex and Daft Punk—The Underground Is Massive captures this fascinating trend in American pop culture history, a grassroots movement that would help define the future of music and the modern tech world we live in.

Horse Jumper of Love

Horse Jumper of Love are Jamie, John, and Dimitri, three dudes from Massachusetts who make heady, drone-y, sometimes haunting songs. As a live entity they favor huge guitar swells and schizophrenic dynamics that ride from quiet to loud and back.

New Dog

New Dog is the newest project from longtime Somerville resident Anar Badalov. Formerly of slowcore greats Metal Hearts and Travels, New Dog finds Badalov pursuing a even more sparse and intimate sound. The band is set to release their second record with indie powerhouse Kill Rock Stars, which definitely suggests that this project is his most potent yet.

Strange Mangers

Boston four-piece Strange Mangers craft heavy, dense guitar rock that owes itself equally to slowcore and shoegaze. As a live entity the group replicates their drifting, icy sound with extreme volume, making for a heavy wash of noise that is felt nearly as much as it is heard. As members of Allston’s Disposable America label collective, Strange Mangers are one of leading lights in Boston’s underground rock scene.

Crew Love w/ Soul Clap, Tanner Ross, DJ Kon and special guest Life on Planets

Thursday at The Middle East is going to be funky as hell. Soul Clap and fellow Crew Love label friend Tanner Ross will provide the soulful, funky-smooth tunes while Life on Planets bring the deep house. Life on Planets began in Baltimore and debuted their first full-length live show at the Wolf + Lamb Marcy Hotel, a starting ground for other great deep house artists such as Nicolas Jaar – and also a favorite of Soul Clap. Their mixes are big on the vocals, and provide a deep and sultry introduction to the sound of funk. Expect to dance but also be completely entranced by the deep house electronic hypnosis their music will provide. Judging by recent mixes Life on Planets have been dishing out, they’re big on the smooth transitions and constant slow jams. Life on Planets are two drastically different personalities clashing into an explosion of creativity, their music draws on the duo’s individual tastes and becomes a combination of all the influences they have between the two of them. There’s no hesitation when it comes to trying out newer genres, even sampling the seductively smooth sounds of Rhye in one of their recent deep house mixes.

Tanner Ross honed his talent at Boston’s own Berklee College of Music, and because of this he has a very technical approach to his music. He is as excellent a producer and sound engineer as he is DJ. Having Charlie from Soul Clap as a roommate for a little while definitely had an effect on his sound; while he’s always been a big fan of hip-hop and R&B the Crew Love inductee put him on the path to funk. Tanner Ross is a big name in Boston; and to have him on the same bill as Soul Clap is akin to watching a family reunion. His music is a little more heavy on his personal hip-hop influences so the line-up is a guaranteed perfect mish-mash of funk, soul, and R&B. I couldn’t think of three artists who go better together.

Soul Clap are a big Boston name. Eli from Soul Clap recently found some vinyls in his basement and spun them at The Middlesex and the line went around the block outside (I know – I was waiting in it). Charlie and Eli, aka Elyte and Cynce, play the grooviest sets you’ll hear all week – and a recent collaboration with soul and funk grandmaster George Clinton only proves their worth. Debuting the track “In Da Kar” at the Marcy Hotel they set the tone for the four-track EP we’re all waiting for – and judging by their instagram an even better music video is in the works to go along with it. Expect a high-energy show, and one that has each artists meld perfectly into the next DJ’s set. By the end of the night you’re going to want to dig out your flared jeans from ten years ago and dig through some old funk vinyls.

DJ Kon joins the bill as well, his name is an acronym for “King of Nothing” and that reflects his attitude towards his music. He doesn’t have any hubris when it comes to his productions – Kon has been in the game since the mid-80’s and his knowledge and vast record collection are his greatest strengths. His forays into disco and soul are truly magnificent and his set will blend flawlessly into the other DJ’s on the setlist for this evening. His love for vinyl is reflected through his participation in the NYC collective “I Love Vinyl” which put on vinyl-only parties all across the city.

Soul Clap, Tanner Ross, DJ Kon and Life on Planets play Thursday May 14th at the Middle East Downstairs. To get into all the shows purchase a Together Boston pass today!” To see this show buy tickets here!

Together X Bijou Boston: Sasha

One of Boston’s biggest nightclubs plays host to one of the world’s biggest DJs on Friday 15th May. Alongside East Coast native Tamer Malki, DJ Sasha headlines the Together Festival this year and we are honored to have him. Catch them both at Bijou during the festival and experience two experienced DJs doing what they do best – blowing the minds of anyone in the crowd.

DJ Sasha has been a global institution for almost two decades, it’s almost impossible to just write a short blurb about him considering the amount he has contributed to the music industry and how he has changed the face of electronic music in general. Sasha is one of the originals, playing illegal warehouse raves and clawing his way into the public eye through whatever means there were – his trance/techno hybrids inspired a whole new generation of DJs. Acid house is what it is because of the guy, and even now he is still changing his sound and playing around with new aesthetics. Known as well for his partnership with fellow DJ Digweed, perhaps their most well known collaboration was the “Northern Exposure” sets – an exploration of the concept album through the gaze of electronic music.

Tamer Malki knows Boston as well as the rest of us. A BU graduate turned DJ, Malki gave up the textbooks to focus on studying the art of music. He has influences as far reaching as Pink Floyd; “Steel Breeze” uses the guitar riff from “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” – and it’s not just classic rock he manages to imbue into his music. With a basis in house techno, he utilizes groovy funk and jazz to keep his music unique and interesting. If anyone can play a bill alongside Sasha this guy can do it; Tiesto himself featured Tamer Malki’s cuts on his radio show Club Life during the 2010 Miami Winter Music Conference.

These guys playing together is going to be a night of hypnotic dance music. Thanks to Bijou’s sound system in particular I’m imagining the crowd sort of entranced by the epic nature of Sasha’s music. Spanning over fifteen years of musical evolution, the genres don’t even matter between these two DJs – they can flawlessly flit between house, techno, trance, their sets flow too evenly to get caught up in analyzing the stylistic changes.

A dream come true thanks to Bijou Boston. Sasha at Together.

With remixes for Shy Girls, Oceaán, and Doss. She is currently working on her next full-length, set for 2015.

Ardalan

Like his fellow Dirtybird compatriots Ardalan is known to traffic in plenty of bass across his mixes, remixes, and dubs, but his appeal lies in his ability to effortlessly couch those lower end frequencies in such forward thinking beats. Capable of producing tracks that nod to both to both the grimey basement below and the ritzy dancehall above, it comes as no surprise that he can credit everyone from Claude Von Stroke to A-Trak as fans...

Justin Martin

One of the minds behind the initial success of Dirtybird Records, Justin Martin has been a force on the San Francisco underground scene for over a decade. Along with his Chaos Restored mix series on Buzzin Fly and various works on Freerange and Ministry of Sounds Underground, Martin has amassed an incredble catalogue of music that's afforded him the opportunity to perform all across Europe. He's still a near constant figure at Dirtybird's San... Read More →

Derek Plaslaiko

Raised on Detroit techno as a teen before, Derek Plasaiko quickly rose to prominence in the Midwestern club scene due to his oft-talked about, and technically diverse sets. That he later relocated to New York City and continued to find success made perfect sense, the man has a sound that defies regional scene aesthetics. As in-demand as they come in New York, we’re pleased to see the Sweet Shop team bring him for what will surely be a... Read More →

For anyone familiar with Boston’s music scene, Volvox needs no introduction. Going back to the days of Man Ray, Ariana has been in and around the industrialized techno underground for a decade. Eventually she reached the rank of resident at MAke It New and really never looked back. Volvox has since stormed NYC, playing regularly at a night at the Bossa Nova Civic Club.

BIO:
'The Wizard' Brian Coxx, creator and resident DJ of New York City's staple underground dance party, Soulgasm NYC has taken the music world by storm. Music enthusiasts, party people and dancers from as far as Japan, Switzerland and Spain come to hear 'The Wizard' who still believes in the art of DJing. Growing up on and dance culture, recording the late night mix shows from DJs such as Red Alert, Chuck Chill Out and Tony Humphries, Coxx has always been immersed in music. Fusing Rock, Funk, Soul and House to motivate party people from all walks of life. Coxx's diverse musical background is what sets him apart from the new jack DJs that have flooded the New York market as of late.

Starting out as a dancer at clubs like Sound Factory Bar and Vinyl, Brian was intrigued by the sounds and the way the energy of a dope mix could move the crowd. It was just a matter of time before he started spinning records from his own extensive collection at various New York City clubs such as Pacha and Cielo


Currently, his mixes lean towards The Deep Underground House sound, but his many different influences show up throughout, keeping it authentic to his roots. Coxx has been known to drop the needle on anything from the psychedelic rock of Jimi Hendrix to the dubbed out sounds of Lee Perry, while always working people's minds as well as their bodies. 


Each time he plays, a loyal and talented following come to hear Brian and his style of mixing, reminiscent of the days of clubs like Paradise Garage when the DJ would throw all types of music into their sets. Never afraid of changing tempos, Brian keeps it all relative. Old and new

'The Wizards' diverse and heart pounding sets have led him to play alongside legends such as Louie Vega, Danny Krivit, and Jellybean Benitez. He was also chosen to rock world renowned Club Shelter's main room by DJ Timmy Regisford. It's no wonder that making music would be the next part of the journey. 

Brian's first release, "Soulgasm Sessions - Vol. 1" under The 'Strictly Rhythm' Label was a huge success which led to him doing remixes on international labels such as Vega, Nervous Records,Seamless and Defected. The music and club world were so impressed by his next hit single, 'Gone' featuring Yasmeen on Strictly Rhythm that it allowed him to start his own label, “Soulgasm Music” showcasing talented artist such as Djeff Afrozilla and Sandy Spady.

DJ BRIAN COXX always stays true to his roots and keeps the party people movin, groovin and anticipating what will be played next. Remember how it used to be? IT STILL IS.
