The new year has brought in a stream of delicious tone setting projects, one of which coming from Washington-based producer, Gus Isaacson, better known as Goosetaf. Following up from his phenomenal debut album, 'Elastic Jungle', we're now presented with the 'Oasis' EP-- a wavy four track collection that showcases some of his most eclectic work to date.
That's right, DJ of the week time again. With everyone back at home or on campus enjoying their spring break, we thought, why not highlight a WIRE classic? This week we'll be featuring Rowan from The Huntresses Den, one of the most long lasting and multi-thematic shows throughout WIRE history.
It turns out that finding and sticking to faculty for guest mixes could be a bit challenging. Not to worry though, as we switched it up this week by contacting one of WIRE's most beloved alumni. We are of course, talking about Dave Kreider. Dave graciously put together an essential tunes playlist. Here are his finest selections, along with a few things he had to say about them.
A new semester has started at Wentworth, meaning our live DJs are back and ready for action! We'll be continuing to have a weekly showcase of the hottest and most unique shows, here on the LiveWire blog. Starting off this year's DJ Of The Week madness, we have Jacob Chrissy. Jacob, who often has a co-host, will be talking to us about his bone-crunching heavy-sounding music show, Sounds of Madness.
With the first Pastry Beats showcase having debuted in Boston; very successfully, and some killer episodes of the podcast recorded and coming up soon, it's finally time for some self-reflection. We've curated a beats showcase, made tons of new friends, eaten the most divine pastries, but most importantly, had our ears peered and ready for new music.
This week's WIRE guest mix comes from a faculty member that has a special place in Wentworth student's hearts. Whether it be cramming for a thermodynamics exam, or staying up all night to work on an industrial design project, Marcus has all the bases covered.
This week's spotlight goes out to a DJ that started WIRE at the beginning of the semester, but nevertheless, has rapidly caught the ears of many of our listeners. We are talking about none other than our coffee drinking and wax spinning enigma, Nocturnal Ned, representing his show, Jazz Wax!
Mehdi Benjelloun, also known as Petit Biscuit, has always been a joy to follow and audibly explore. Although, his music is EDM in a general sense, Mehdi's sound is something that only he has mastered painting with. Delving into his new album, 'Presence', I felt an indescribable curiosity. However, coming out of the album, I gained a newfound appreciation for him and his boundary-expanding approach to a genre that's changed my life.
It was only a matter of time before the sounds of jazz crept their way into the DJ of the week showcase. This DJ has been broadcasting and hand-selecting some of the grooviest tunes in the genre for the past two years. So without further ado, meet the expert himself, Andrew Sacco.
You guys asked for it, and we heard you loud and clear! This fall we'll be bringing back the WIRE guest mix series, where we go around asking some of Wentworth's favorite faculty for specially-curated playlists. This week we have Rebecca Ryan, the coordinator of commuter student programs, as well as WIRE's beloved adviser!
