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!
With another week coming to an end, we're here to bring you a new WIRE DJ for our DJ of the week segment. This week's DJ of the week is someone who has taken the extra step to make sure they do all of their shows. We are of course, talking about Etarnaty from On The Fly. Let's see what one of WIRE's most active members has been up to!
Allem Iversom, a Soundcloud account that has recently sprung to some level of recognition, shows the inner workings of one of Pastry Beats' favorites, Harris Cole.This debut project, Without You, shares some incredibly beautiful works made from well-selected sample material. Despite the whole sampling vs non-sampling ordeal, Allem moves past this and contributes to these works with his previously-discovered sound.
Every semester we're presented with some of the most bizarre and interesting shows in WIRE history. This fall, WikiLeeks is no exception. Run by Abby and Matt, these two rascals take the world by storm with their decoding and exploration of the web's biggest encyclopedia; Wikipedia. Are they on a life long mission to prove that Wikipedia is a credible source? Let's find out!
Another week, another opportunity to spotlight one of WIRE's talented DJs. This week we'll be bringing you a veteran that runs a trailblazing hip-hop show, with his eyes set on new horizons in incorporating EDM. Of course, we're talking about the station's rambunctious poster child, Drew Hogg. In this interview we'll be talking about Drew's new show, his favorite artists, and his thoughts on the state of hip-hop music. Let's dig in and see what his show, Vibin', has been all about lately.
With every semester that goes by, a fresh batch of eager DJs step up to run the WIRE controls. These DJs, along with seasoned vets, have returned with unique shows that we can't wait to promote. We'll be selecting shows to be featured on the blog, complimented with a behind the scenes interview of whoever's involved. For our semester's first DJ of the week, we'll be shining a spotlight on everyone's eight-armed game developing bud, Squidly; who runs Radio Free Games.
Enter Tsuruda; an artist whose music I can only describe as an an ensemble of hermits with a god-given talent in using pots and pans to create a cacophony of beats and rhythms. It's eerie and dark; yet filled with soul and a deep understanding of how sounds work together. Luckily for us, Courteous Family's staple has now returned a year later with a 14 track LP. This time he has landed a release on the legendary Noisia's record label, DIVISION recordings. The album is called MOVE, and is shaping up to be one of my favorite releases of the year.
