Baltimoroder (BOS)

Baltimoroder was born out of necessity. The story begins in Illinois, where Baltimoroder (aka Erik Pearson) abused cheap Yamaha keytars and Fisher-Price turntables. In high school, punk shows, record stores and raw performance spaces filled his time. On to college, Los Angeles and the mighty KXLU radio station, where he absorbed avant-garde sounds, ambient music and experimental artists. The turning point came after a cross-country trek to Boston and a low-key house party. He took the decks, mixing tracks he had never heard into a swell that kick-started a dance floor. From that night on, the floor never stopped growing. DJing to dance fiends night after night is his passion—whether thugged-out Baltimore music or the retro-sexual glam of Giorgio Moroder. Behold Baltimoroder. New residencies started popping up in all different styles, all the way from Balearic dinner music to Dancehall/Hip-Hop to Techno and Electro. Baltimoroder mixes aggressively and flawlessly in any genre put in his path. It was a chance meeting with David Day; a local promoter and European techno aficionado that took him from the bedrooms to the clubs. Their natural talents were a perfect match; Erik the technical party-rocker and Dave the consummate promoter. In search of greater platform for artists and musicians, they opened the art/event space sQuareOne in the Boston Fort Point district showcasing everything from 2d painting, photography, and film/video to music production, live performance, and some amazing dance parties. But it was the Hearthrob parties that set a new standard. A partnership between Red Fox, Morgan Louis & Greg Fourner (CEO), Hearthrob combines a strong visual aesthetic and peerless experience rounded out with guests such as Johnny Love, Jokers of the Scene, Muscles, Krames, D.I.M, Lifelike, Alan Braxe, Sinden, The Teenagers and many more.

"The festival’s seventh year was its best yet… Every day of the week there was at least one—and often several—things to look forward to."

"The core notion of the festival … isn’t just to provide a good time, but to illustrate the fertile mix of art and technology intrinsic to current-day Boston."

"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."
