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

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.

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.
