Beat Research – Jan 08

I’m not so good about keeping this page updated, which is why I link to the Beat Research site over on the sidebar there>>

At any rate, we’ve got some great guests lined up for the next month. Here they are, descriptions snipped&chopped from the BR website

Jan 14 :: DJ Paul Dailey and Wayne’s Harvard Extension Class

A veteran of the dance music scene in New England and beyond, Paul Dailey has been rocking dancefloors for more than two decades. Hailing from Boston, Paul has traveled extensively and performed in some of the top venues and cities in the world (including the WMC in Miami and the Movement/DEMF in Detroit.) Paul regularly plays at RISE and Avalon in Boston, Metronome in Burlington, and Sullivan Room in New York City. He has played at some of the best parties and festivals in North America, alongside many of the best techno DJs in the world including Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Marco Bailey, Adam Beyer, Christian Smith and Chris Liebing. Paul also hosts a weekly show called Hardwired (www.hardwiredradio.com), which is the only international techno mix show broadcast across North America on XM Satellite Radio (channel 80) as well as weekly broadcasts for Orion 1 Radio, iParty.com, and he is a monthly resident (along with Timo Maas, Loco Dice, Adam Freeland and John Aquaviva) on Master Dub, an FM mix show syndicated across Italy.

Wayne’s “electro class” at Harvard Extension School will be presenting their production projects from the Fall semester. Ranging from hip-hop & dancehall to house & techno to dubstep & jungle to remixes & mashups, expect a broad interpretation of “electronic music” from a talented group of students.

Jan 21 :: Dev/Null

A self-proclaimed “Music Nerd” Dev/Null has played shows all over the world including; Japan, Belgium, the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria & The US

Though better known for his breakcore productions on the German label Cock Rock Disco, Allston-based producer Dev/Null is also a serious collector and DJ of oldschool jungle and breakbeat hardcore vinyl from 1991-1995. Come listen to him spin some of his favorite records from labels like Suburban Base, Reinforced and Moving
Shadow, plus plenty of lesser known tunes and white labels.

Jan 28 :: DJ Yamin

DJ Yamin aka Ben Epstein has been DJing and producing for over 12 years. His love for hip-hop spawned his quest to find the source of all the samples that were being used in the songs he loved. Digging through the dusty record bins he discovered such artists such as Bill Withers, P-Funk and The Meters. He put his knowledge to use and started a radio show called “The Grooveyard” on WMFO which lasted for over 7 years.

His first release as a producer was in 1994 with a breakbeat beat record called “5 Finger Breaks” produced alongside Moosaka. He has DJ’d with several Hip-Hop groups such as P.O.E. and III Kings and has opened up for such acts as Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Crown City Rockers and The Violent Femmes. He is the founder of Beats Not Bombs, a political organization that gathers artists and activists together to raise money and awareness for such groups as Amnesty International and Campaign to Ban Landmines.
