Together Festival Closing Party at Middlesex Lounge on May 21, 2017

Together Festival Closing Party Presents Leon Vynehall, Beautiful Swimmers, Gary Carlow & more!

Together is a week long festival taking place across Boston and Cambridge celebrating Music, Art and Technology.

Leon Vynehall
Leon Vynehall has already proved himself to be that rare thing – an artist with his own agenda rather than a producer aping the sound of the day. To date his off kilter sounds have come in the form of EPs on labels like 3024, Rush Hour and Running Back, and have been carefully crafted things, layered with musicality whilst never straying too far from a infectious groove. “I like chords, I like atmosphere and some sort of emotion in music. Rather than it being just about the dance floor, I like it being a bit of both. I like to take a sound and change it, manipulating things so they sound a bit dusty. With drums, I like to make them sound more human. I prefer dance music that isn’t quantized, regimented, and super mixed down to the nano-perfect spot. I’m a believer in the fact that music doesn’t have to sound professional to sound great. Mastering engineers hate me.” His DJ style is eclectic, considered and always surprising, and has been expertly reflected in his popular mixes, with comments like “quite possibly raised more questions than it answered.”

Beautiful Swimmers
If you’re ever feeling down on dance music, go to a Beautiful Swimmers gig. Andrew Field-Pickering (AKA Max D) and Ari Goldman have been going back-to-back since the late ’00s, and they’re among the most animated DJs in the game, hammering home the fun and physicality of their selections by dancing and wearing ear-to-ear smiles. They’re also serious record collectors—when they’re not traveling, Goldman and Field-Pickering work in record stores, and their time spent in the bins shows in their sets. Over the years, the duo have used house music as a foundation to explore Baltimore club, jungle, post-punk and other unclassifiable delights. Goldman and Field-Pickering also both run labels.

Gary Carlow
Gary Carlow never gets caught up in genres. his sound incorporates different genres woven together to take the dance-floor on a musical journey. He considers himself to be an “event appropriate” DJ, you won’t hear him play the same thing at a club gig that you will hear at an after-hours event. His sound is not commercial. There is so much great music out there that you would never hear on the radio or in a mainstream club. Music has always been his passion and he has been a DJ for 26 years and still gets excited every time he steps into the booth! Enjoy!
