Chicago icons, live acts, lo-fi house, and hometown heroes
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — [Cambridge, MA] — Having recently announced its move from spring to the fall, the ninth edition of Together Boston is proving to be a festival roaring back to town.
The Black Madonna and Honey Dijon are two of the brightest names in club music’s continual evolution. Affectionately known as TBM, the Chicago smartbar resident has catapulted to one of the most featured sound selectors in the world. She even was recently animated in the new franchise from Grand Theft Auto: After Hours(!)
Also a Chicago native (the home of house music, after all), Miss Honey Dijon cut her teeth in the superclubs of New York City, especially on the dancefloor of Danny Tenaglia’s mega sets at Twilo. “It’s this combination,” Honey Dijon says, “of Chicago and New York that has helped me develop my signature sound.” Their talents will be on full display in an epic party Saturday, September 29th.
Speaking of Chicago icons, Derrick Carter turned the Midwestern mecca on its head in the early 90s. Joining the previously announced Palms Trax at his residency on Thursday, September 27th, Mr. Carter sets are rooted in house, but he freely travels outside club tastes, “seamlessly incorporating old-school disco, soul, jazz, and whatever else catches his fancy.”
Hometown heroes come back on Monday, September 24th with the Soul Clap Records Revue tour at The Sinclair in Cambridge, MA. Two live bands, Midnight Magic and Underground System, disco pop and afrobeat, respectively, join Bamboozle for their mega-funky return (Bamboozle is a the all-45 spinning DJ project from Eli).
On Friday 9/28, “Winona” producer DJ Boring, with over 3.8M views on YouTube) storms the Create Space Collab party known as Lower Level for a Boston debut.
Finally, Denis Sulta will close out the festival at the day party Sunday, September 9/30. Since his last visit to Cambridge, Sulta has become an international music festival headliner and authored an aptly-named Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1.
Meanwhile, previously announced opening-night guest, Floorplan reposition the euphoric feel of gospel, Jon Hopkins triumphantly returns as “one of the most celebrated musicians of his generation” (New Yorker).
See all of it for $145.00 as 2nd release passes are going fast. For more information or to contact any of the artists in advance of the festival, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
