  • Together Recap: Day Eight!

    By Anna Cieslik on May 23, 2016
    To be quite honest, I don’t really want to write this recap. And it’s not because day eight of Together was any less amazing than the past seven (spoiler alert: it was actually one of the best days); it’s because with this recap marks the official end of the 2016 Together festivities. All melancholy feelings aside though, day eight was…
  • Together Recap: Day Five!

    By Anna Cieslik on May 20, 2016
    Together day five was a testament to the diversity of genres under the electronic music umbrella. Attendees left with the stamina to bounce around Cambridge yesterday were rewarded with everything from kawaii beats to forward thinking drum and bass, all united by their collective aim to get people dancing. To start things off, the folks at Danger!Awesome helped put on a free interactive…
  • Together Recap: Day Four!

    By Anna Cieslik on May 19, 2016
    If day four of Together proved one thing, it’s that Bostonians don’t always have to turn to far off lands when looking for boundary-pushing approaches to music, art, and technology. Wednesday featured impressive acts, lectures, and installations from at home and abroad, creating. The result? A synthesis of talent right here in Boston.   The day started with a discussion on Reinforcing…
  • The Sound Sculptures of France Jobin And Tim Feeney

    By Anna Cieslik on May 14, 2016
    At the intersection of the fine arts and music reside France Jobin and Tim Feeney. The two artists create sweeping sonic portraits that challenge the way we interact with and perceive both music and art alike. Jobin and Feeney don’t create art that can be easily mounted on the wall of a museum for patrons to wander past; nor do…
  • Making History With Techno Heavyweights Optimo

    By Anna Cieslik on May 13, 2016
    The UK’s techno scene no doubt owes much of its success to Optimo, a duo that has been crafting and fine tuning the sound of techno for almost 20 years now. What started as the convergence of talented DJs JD Twitch and JG Wilkes in 1997 has since grown into a cult following all over the world. Beyond the duo’s…
  • Together App Makes For Stress Free Fest Planning

    By Anna Cieslik on May 10, 2016
    The interconnectedness of social media is a double edged sword; it’s easier than ever before to stay up to date on everything going on in the world, but it can feel extremely cluttered at times as we are perpetually adding new social media sites to our digital arsenal. Every so often, an app comes out that aims to declutter our…
  • Dive into Ben UFO’s Penetrating Soundscapes

    By Anna Cieslik on May 2, 2016
    Ben UFO doesn’t create songs so much as he creates sweeping soundscapes meant to transplant listeners to a dystopian otherworld. Initially influenced by the early UK dubstep scene, he takes those deep, growling elements of the genre and slows them down to an eking crawl. The result sounds like the sonic equivalent of Salvador Dali’s melting clocks, dripping through the…
  • The Black Madonna Is Here To Diversify Dance Music

    By Anna Cieslik on May 2, 2016
    Rising from the masses of DJs and producers still populating Chicago’s famous house music scene, The Black Madonna stands out because she is always looking for a way to challenge the status quo. Frankie Knuckles and the rest of the Warehouse crew might have established Chicago as the birthplace of house back in ‘80s, but The Black Madonna and her crew…
  • The Future Of Drum And Bass, Courtesy of Ivy Lab

    By Anna Cieslik on April 26, 2016
    Since 2013, the UK trio Ivy Lab have been working mercilessly to create a future sounding form of drum and bass. Grounded in the hard dub elements of the genre, with bits of everything from gabber backbeats to R&B rhythms and even some tropical house riffs throughout their tracks, Ivy Lab are anything but easy to pigeonhole. Oftentimes, their sound…

"The sixth edition of Together ... was a reminder of how much Boston still has to offer for the tribes of dance music fans who live here ... Despite its size, Together pulled off an impressive range of sounds from across the electronic spectrum."
