TOGETHER FESTIVAL: FACT SHOWCASE w/ MUMDANCE
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.
London based producer Mr. Mitch is at the forefront of the burgeoning instrumental grime movement, with a list of releases under his belt from labels such as Big Dada, Fools Gold, Butterz, Mixpak and his own imprint Gobstopper Records, he successfully manages to push the grime sound in new and interesting directions. He is also one of the four members that run Boxed, a club night that has acted as a hub for the emerging scene of producers and DJ’s currently developing this new sound.
Mitch released his album ‘Parallel Memories’ on Planet Mu at the back end of 2014 to critical acclaim, being named FACT Mags second best album of 2014.
The name Star Eyes is synonymous with raw underground bass music. A founding member of the world-renowned Trouble & Bass crew, this NYC bat girl causes mayhem around the world with DJ sets and original tracks that swiftly connect the dots between regional American bass sounds and the hardcore continuum—though her style moves across eras and genres, her aesthetic is continually inspired by jungle, old-skool hardcore, and the warehouse parties in which she was raised. Star Eyes is based in Brooklyn, New York, where she runs Chaos Clan—a record label and monthly party. She is also an alumni of Red Bull Music Academy, a radio host on RBMA Radio, and a noted music journalist and curator whose work has appeared in XLR8R, VICE, Spin, and beyond. She has played at EDC, Sonar, Fabric, Rinse FM, and at music festivals from Camp Bisco to Burning Man. With world-class skills and a troublemaker’s attitude to match, Star Eyes has definitely earned the title ‘Brooklyn’s queen of heavy bass.”
