TUBA is Brooklyn's premier Bass Music and Dubstep label releasing in both 12" vinyl and digital formats. Artists on roster include JKenzo, Compa, Truth, DJG, Moldy, Daega Sound, and RDG. Through its’ roster and Brooklyn based event series, TUBA actively strives to bridge the gap between the N.American and European dubstep scenes.

Lineup: 

-Bakir (TUBA NYC)

Ric Baker, better known as Bakir, has been involved at the forefront of the bass music scene in North America since 2008. With the formation of the San Francisco based live dubstep group The Spit Brothers, his solo productions and the founding of Dubs Alive Records, Bakir has been an influential player as a producer, performer, and label boss. He and The Spit Brothers were named one of S.F. Weekly’s Dubstep Ambassadors and have been featured performers at SXSW. His TUBA NYC imprint established in 2010 has amassed an impressive group of artists on its roster, including J:Kenzo, TRUTH, DJG, Compa, Moldy, Daega Sound, XI, AxH, Antiserum, The Spit Brothers, and Prism. The catalog is defined by its deep, forward thinking sound and its constant quality. Now based in Brooklyn, Bakir’s own productions are defined by his love of sub bass, percussion, and dark atmospherics that are further informed by his background as a jazz trumpet player and composer. He has releases on Interchill, Crux, Dubs Alive, TUBA, Brap Dem, Full Melt, Voltage, and Kush Arora Productions.

Moldy (TUBA / Bassic Boston

Boston based producer Ennis Glendon aka Moldy crafts dark, mind-bending sound system music with an unwavering minimal approach. Amidst an ever-changing electronic music landscape, Moldy has stayed true to his sound, refusing to bargain with the mainstream.

“Moldy’s sound has maintained the same anxious, eerie, perverse sensibility that it always has, which has an impact on people on a dance floor that is hard to describe without witnessing it firsthand.” – Dave Q (Boston Globe, 3/14/13).

A veteran DJ of over fifteen years, Moldy is a resident at the long running Boston party BASSIC, where he is currently conducting experiments with a new strain of deviant, slower rhythms of his own design.

Recognized as a pioneer of the US dubstep movement and fixture at the legendary Dub War parties in New York City, his productions have garnered support from top names in the underground, leading to the formation of his Heavy Pressure Recordings imprint in 2006 and releases on labels including ‘Earwax, Embassy, and TUBA.

-Prism (TUBA NYC)

Boston-based producer Prism (Dave Hanson) has been gaining a lot of notoriety as his career and creative work continues to expand and evolve. Within less than a year he has been awarded two ‘Tune of the Month’ spots in UK Based Mixmag, radio play on BBC Radio 1 by Skream, featured on ITunes’s New & Noteworthy Singles, and received plenty of praise & support from the likes of Mala, Chef, N-Type, Quest, Om Unit, Joe Nice and Appleblim. Already slated for another vinyl release in the fall with remixes by Turkish prodigy Gantz which recently saw play from Vivek at the second Reconstrvct Anniversary, Prism doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. His DJing isn’t to be underplayed in comparison to his production either; playing alongside such notable artists as J:Kenzo, Squarepusher, Mount Kimbie, Silkie, Kahn, Heny G, Razor Rekta, Cessman, Distal & Wheez-ie to name a few. 

Prism is a multifaceted artist. Designing artwork for countless labels, writing & directing music videos for himself and other producers, as well as creating music at a myriad of different genres & tempos, he is certainly one to keep on your radar.

Minimal techno is possibly one of the most difficult styles in the world to pull off.

A Song for Echo
"A Song for Echo" was produced by Brooklyn-based video and performance artist Julie Nymann (http://julienymann.com/) and includes an original soundtrack by Boston-based electronic music composer Ricardo Donoso (http://ricardodonoso.com/). The exhibition is a fully immersive experience, utilizing the entirety of the Museums 57-foot planetarium dome. 

Nymann produces video and performance works which recite the inherent dualities embodied in folklore and present in all people. She emphasizes the acts of self-attraction, repulsion, intimacy, and distance. Boston-based Donoso produces emotional soundscapes that become "a mirror in which the illusions we hide ourselves behind are dissolved." A Song for Echo’s central character embarks on a spiritual journey through earth and water, attempting to discover herself and her relationship to the elements before nightfall.

Chet Faker

Back when electronic music was a new thing, one of the things people complained about was that they thought it didn't have any soul. "Aren't we removing all the human elements, all the emotion, all the sensuality from music by taking away the instruments?" they asked.

Just in case anyone out there is still worried about that, may we present the music of Chet Faker. He is a person who brings enough soul, emotion and sensuality to get even the most skeptical listeners interested in electronic sounds

Human Impacts Boston
In the U.S., there is an urgent need for improved education in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. STEAM education is necessary for our country to remain a leader in the global marketplace, but more importantly, this focused education is imperative to our changing planet. Climate change has already given rise to many devastating alterations to our climate system and will continue to drastically change the world that we all know. In order to mitigate and adapt to climate change, we need to foster leaders and innovators. We need to encourage "big-thinkers" who are well versed in science and technology, who are capable of dreaming big AND designing tangible solutions to issues surrounding energy use, agriculture, sea level rise, and increased extreme weather events.  

The Human Impacts Institute is traveling to Boston, Massachusetts where we will host an evening event dedicated to examining education for a changing climate. Join us for an evening of engaging discussion from a diversity of Boston's community leaders and thinkers and thought-provoking performances from local artists dedicated to shedding some light on environmental and educational issues.

Panelists include:
Deputy Consul General Mathias Kruse Opening remarks
Brian Swett, Chief, Environment & Energy at City of Boston
Susan Israel, The Energy Necklace Project
Hannah Sevian, Associate Professor of Chemistry at U-Mass Boston
Georg Maue, First Secretary of Climate and Energy of the Federal Republic of Germany
Xiao Xiao, Pianist and Technologist of the MIT Media Lab
David Wang, In-house Rocket Scientist at NuVu

Inspirational live performances from:
Xiao Xiao, Pianist and Technologist of the MIT Media Lab
Jimmy M. Hughes, Electronic Musician 
Kemi Alabi, Spoken Word Artist 



This salon is the fifth in a creative communication series in partnership with the Transatlantic Climate Bridge of the German Embassy. As leaders in renewable energy, Germany has a lot of knowledge to share regarding successful energy policies and communication efforts. So far we have held salons in New York City, Atlanta, D.C., and Miami where we have highlighted Germany's efforts in solar technology and politics.

About us:
At the Human Impacts Institute, we inspire action for strong communities and a healthy environment through hands-on, service education, coalition building, and using arts and culture for social good. For more info:http://www.HumanImpactsInstitute.org/


This event wouldn't be possible without the help of our amazing partners: 

The Transatlantic Climate Bridge Program of the German government, which aims to support platforms and partnerships that help Americans and Germans exchange their know-how and to pave the way for joint solutions.

Together BostonThe Together Festival 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.

The Goethe-Institut Boston was the first Goethe-Institut in the United States and founded in 1967. It is located in the historic Back Bay/Beacon Hill area and provides services for the six New England states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. The Goethe-Institut Boston is the contact point for anyone interested in German culture and for those who want to study or teach German. 

At the German Consulate General Boston one can find information on Germany, the consular services we provide in our Visa, Passport, and Legal section, and Germany-related news and events in our area. We offer a wide spectrum of information, including details on traveling, studying, and doing business in Germany.

As a founding member of Low End Theory, you expect a certain amount of non-quantized weirdness out of someone like Gaslamp Killer. You might not expect the kind of world-devouring darkness, shattered-reality sampling, and (occasionally) meditative evolutions that he brings to the game, however. He sounds alternately like a hip-hop cyborg crashing through a large window and like an herbal healer.

Breton w/ Kid Karate and Animal Talk
For a lot of us, the sound of arty, electronic-skewed dance-rock was pretty much defined by LCD Soundsystem, with their groovy melodies and post-ironic lyrics. That world has not dissolved with them, however. Breton takes their angular guitar and synth riffs and combines it with a more directly post-punk aesthetic, shouting all their refrains, and dropping some heavy 2014 bass from time to time for good measure. This year at Together Boston they're at the perfect venue for dance-rock, the Great Scott. Go grab their new album, War Room Stories here, so you can memorize everything you need to yell.

Residing somewhere between old school industrial, post-dubstep, and (with their most recent album, I Am Legion) trap/hip-hop, they've got an aggressive sound that's pretty unlike anything else going.

Rob Swift knows all about evolution and its conceptual cousin, revolution—whether it’s the spontaneous kind that sparks radical change, or the vinyl-based kind that occurs at 33-1/3 revolutions – per – minute (and variations thereof). And for a cat like Swift—who has worked with everyone from Linkin Park to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Mike Patton to Herbie Hancock—truly forward-thinking, revolutionary music just seems to come naturally, and on some occasions, at a cost. DJs must adapt, and in this high-speed information era, that means expanding your scope of vision from beyond your instrument to new expressive vehicles “by any means necessary.”

Or well, that’s one take, anyway. However it seems to you, the guy is going to push boundaries, and make you question your ideas of what electronic music is and should be.

Since he was 17, when his first band was signed to Island Records, Justin has had a career that reads like a Who’s-Who of the music scene, spinning at nearly every dance club that you’d ever want to go to. Starting as DJ at New York’s legendary Mudd Club, he spun his way through The Ritz, Limelight, Area, Tunnel, M.K., Life, Centro Fly and more, pioneering his own distinctive sound, and becoming one of the most sought-after remixers and producers not just in New York, but in the world. He has worked with the gamut of artists - Depeche Mode, Sergio Mendez, Tina Turner, Jimmy Cliff, B-52s, Luther Vandross, Malcolm McClaren, Skinny Puppy, and Goldfrapp, to name a few– and on over 200 records! 

Much of the new dance crowd that goes to hear Justin DJ today, whether at subMercer, The Standard, Highbar, Soho House, or Love, doesn’t necessarily know his history; they simply love his spinning because he always keeps them dancing and surprised, seamlessly mixing between choice classics, delectable rarities and innovative beats. For Justin, no genre or style is off-limits – he can and will mix anything, so long as he can keep the crowd enthralled. His self-proclaimed mission is “connecting the dots” between what might otherwise seem disparate musical periods and styles, while introducing exciting new sounds. He does so with infectious passion, subverting preconceptions about what’s old and new, and inspiring young DJs with his masterful skill and ever-youthful spirit.

But Justin Strauss doesn’t stop there. As half of the production duo, Whatever/Whatever, he continues to produce and mix records, working on remixes for the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Beyonce, La Roux and more. In fact, he doesn’t stop at all. Like the amazing city he’s dedicatedly kept dancing since 1980, Justin just keeps going. 

Supporting cast:


First we have a true legend to the adult industry: Caseroc, star of such movies as Blown in 60 Seconds, Field Of Wet Dreams & Star Whores. When not make trashy flicks, Caseroc enjoys raising money for retired wrestlers, refereeing Mexican cock fights and housing crowds at your favorite clubs in the greater Boston area. You can also catch him near Fenway Park feeding pigeons.

Next we have one of Boston's true main eventers, Brenden Wesley, star of such movies as I Know Who You Did Last Summer and Children of The Porn. When not making sleezy movies, Brenden spends his time going on long walks, weaving baskets, making future underground dance hits and DJing all over the 617, including a residency at Gallery.

Then there's the lady killer, Nick "love me two times" Mineri. When not hiding from jealous husbands, Nick is busy on the silver screen in perverted movies like Assablanca, Twin Cheeks & Throbin Hood. Besides being an avid Dwarf thrower, Mr. Mineri enjoys warm cereal, playing hopscotch at the YMCA and skipping rocks on the Cambridge side of the Charles River.

Also we have up and cummer, Matt Mello, a true renaissance man. When not spending his time on the big screen in filthy movies like Chitty Chitty Gang Bang, When Harry Ate Sally and On Golden Blonde, Matt spends his time sculpting bronze sculptures of over sized women and their pets. He also enjoys painting sunsets and sunrises and rocking the dance floor at his residency at SLIH.

Finally we have Alan Manzi aka The Handsome Half-Breed, star of the Some Like It Hott series. When not MILF hunting or getting drunk at the local playground, you can catch him somewhere in the 617 behind the 1's & 2's making all the ladies shake their hips.

Cashmere Cat, Jerome LOL, DJ Oneman w/ Durkin
Any way you look at it, this is a pretty exciting show, since it has 3 guys who could easily hold down a room all on their own. Cashmere Cat has been pushing the bounds of R&B inflected bass music with his latest EP, Wedding Bells, resulting in some pretty unexpected stuff. Jerome LOL works in a similar sphere, giving his sound more of a glimmering house/proudly silly feel, and just released his EP, Deleted/Fool. DJ Oneman, meanwhile, is purely a DJ, one who throws around bass, hip-hop and whatever else he feels like with exuberance.

I Dream of Wires Documentary Screening and Discussion
On the closing night of our festival, as part of our film program, we'll be screening I Dream of Wires at the Institute of Contemporary Art. Robert Fantinatto's documentary is billed as a “film about the phenomenal resurgence of the modular synthesizer, exploring the passions, obsessions, and dreams of people who have dedicated part of their lives to this esoteric electronic music machine.” And in many regards, it's the perfect cap to our week-long program, largely because if it wasn't for those above referenced obsessives, there wouldn't be a Together. The sound procured from those machines is the closest thing we have to an auditory calling card. To see that in action, look no further than the fact that one of Fantianatto's featured interviewees will be taking up residence at the Lily Pad upon the conclusion of the screening.

After the screening their will be a discussion on modular synthesizers with Joe Paradiso (MIT), Dr. Richard Boulanger of Berklee and modular synth guru Keith Fullerton Whitman.

He exploded after his Dirtybird release and moved around labels after that, landing on Night Slugs, Ten Thousand Yen, and other labels, which should tell you something about his music. He swerves all the way from broken-sounding bass music to straight-up poppy house. His latest release, "Peppermint" is all over the internet right now. You can catch him at Together in The Sinclair this year. It's a big room, but with a name like Julio Bashmore, you can bet it'll be full.
