Beat Research – August 07

As per usual (as of this summer), I’ll be holding down residential duties at Beat Research alongside DJ Flack. Here’s our smashing line-up for the month of August. Come and join the experimental party!

Aug 6 :: 5dots

Craig Davis (aka 5dots) began making music because it seemed like a good idea. Early experimental noise projects have given way to a more accessible sound, but his DJ work still reflects his scattershot roots. Dubstep to hiphop, breakcore to indie pop – he doesn’t like to play one genre at a time.

Craig is one half of Serious DJs. His most recent downloadable mix is remarkably eccentric / unorthodox chopped & screwed. Just the way we like it.

Aug 13 :: DJ C

It’s the return of DJ C, the co-creator of Beat Research himself.

Fresh off his European tour and visiting from his new digs in Chicago this home-town hero needs no introduction. After rocking giant festivals of teeming masses he’s looking forward to returning to the concentrated good vibes of the Enormous Room, his humble home away from home.

Expect all kinds of new musical treats collected from abroad, mixed with style and panache and, of course, a little of that ol’ Boston Bounce.

Aug 20 :: KID DD & Os Santos

KDOS is the musical alliance of local multi-intrumentalist Daniel D’Errico with young Brazilian percussion phenom Marcus Santos.

Borrowing in equal parts from traditional and contemporary dance music styles, they are devoted to the syncronizing of raw electronic beats with the bubble and clang of live percussion. A mad blend of dancehall / digi-funk / ongo / hip-hop / electro / axé / reggae / samba / street-beat should be expected. & Guest appearances from the local Brazilian music community are highly likely.

Mexe a bunda gente!

Aug 27 :: DJ Evaready

Watch out for some up-to-the-time booty beat blends from Boston’s own DJ Evaready, who blogs here and posts mixes like this recent melange.
