Together Boston is an annual celebration of music, art and technology, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The festival was first held in February, 2010, with continually broadening scope of musical genres as well as a thorough exploration of the art and technology sectors.

Through a week-long series of educational and professional discussion panels, art installations, film screenings, and musical performances at venues around the Boston/Cambridge area, Together Boston attracts tens of thousands each May. Although historically based in Boston, the festival has found its footing across the Charles River in Central Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts and expects to be working closely with Cambridge City Hall in 2013.

In 2012, Together hosted musical artists such as Photek, RJD2, Mala,Todd Edwards, Dillon Francis, Nero, Phill Niblock, 6th Borough Project and more, while hosting film screenings for the Chemical Brothers movie Don’t Think, as well as the Electric Daisy Carnival documentary.

 

CASHMERE CAT

Uploading bootleg edits of Jeremih and 2 Chainz, and doing an official remix for Lana Del Rey, Cashmere Cat quickly gained thousands of cat-loving listeners online and support from DJ´s like Diplo, A-Trak, Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Brodinski, Baauer, Busy P, Nguzunguzu, Sinden and Kito. The cat´s take on seductive R&B, futuristic hip-hop and bass music also caught the attention of Paris Social Club residents Pelican Fly Records, who released his debut EP “Mirror Maru” in October 2012.

Behind the razor-sharp-but-soft-and-furry paws of Cashmere Cat hides Magnus August Høiberg. The 25-year old Oslo-based producer used to lurk behind the scenes of disco and house-music, previously working with labels like Kitsuné, True Panther and Ninja Tune. As Cashmere Cat, a project that is little over a year old, he embraces his true love – gritty R&B and slow jamz.

JEROME LOL

To raise the new, one must raze the old. For the better part of the past decade, Los Angeles producer/DJ Jerome Potter has utilized his creative efforts toward LOL Boys, a collaborative project that was sparked via an online message board with likeminded DJ Markus Garcia. Undoubtedly a fruitful endeavor, debuting numerous buzzworthy EPs and becoming among the most in-demand DJs in the LA club scene, the LOL Boys recently reached their climax with the release of their most acclaimed record to date, the Changes EP, and have since announced their decision to put the venture on an indefinite hiatus. From the ashes of LOL Boys though, rises Jerome Potter’s newfound solo enterprise, Jerome LOL. And now, with the ability to contribute to the entire greater whole rather than just half, Jerome LOL is set to continue right where LOL Boys left off: further exploring uncharted spectrums in modern dance music while still maintaining the unique, Internet-fueled aesthetic.

ONEMAN

There are DJs that are heavily tied to styles, people who go on to become figures synonymous with a certain sound or a particular approach to mixing; and then there are DJ’s DJs – a different breed of people who manage to make the whole process of blending records from disparate genres look (and sound) seamless. Often, it’s not just about beat matching perfectly, it’s as much about capturing a mood and evolving it through your record selections as it is locking on to a consistent rhythm and that’s something that Streatham bred DJ, Steve Bishop has proven himself to be mightily adept at over the years and his now ample fan base reflects that talent.

As much as his sets under the Oneman moniker may have started turning heads by melding old school UK garage with DMZ style dubstep, he’s proven through his DJ sets and his regular presence on London institution Rinse FM that he can do so much more than just marry classics with current beats. Whether through his famed hip hop & R&B sets for The Boiler Room, the now legendary back to back sets with Jackmaster or opening for dance titans such as SBTRKT and Major Lazer, Oneman has that rare ability to destroy any party and leave you in no doubt who it was you’ve been listening to.

With two varied and acclaimed mix CDs, FABRICLIVE 64 and Rinse 15, to his name already, he’s got plans to release a third mixtape in the New Year and that, combined with his European and US tours that are already in the offing before the end of the first quarter, makes it plain to see that 2013 will be further outlining Oneman’s tireless passion and work ethic.
