While Mixpak is undoubtedly responsible for releasing some of the biggest names in dancehall in recent memory, they also have been turning out a steady stream of forward thinking, bass heavy club music that often touches on, and in turn inspires, the dancehall sound. Jubilee represents one of those artists who have helped establish that signature sound, along with contemporaries such as Dubbel Dutch, Murlo, and others. Hailing from Miami, her DJ style mimics the link between the early origins of hip hop and dancehall culture. Miami bass mixed with Jersey club, meets grime and other bass forward styles, she knows how to keep a party at attention and pumping.
M.BOOTYSPOON (Fractal Fantasy)
Know that the M is short for Martyn. The living, breathing, algorithmic persona M.Bootyspoon has been revered for years through his sleezetastic vocals on label-mate Sinjin Hawke’s sonically cathedrals. His critically acclaimed debut EP on ‘Fractal Fantasy’ propels the idea of stripped-back ghetto house, rave infused club bangers into a contemporary context without trimming the phat. When DJing, he does not shake off this ethos behind the decks. This Montrealer travels with the deepest crates for the hottest of crowds to get up close and personal.
Since he first took to DJing in 2008, local Fens (Matt Rohr) has carved his way through Boston through countless storied club nights and parties. From his early beginnings with Banana Peel Records, where his collaborations with CreateSpace Collab helped launch the Good Life staple, Sweet Shop, to his involvement with the JASS crew, which helped bring several groundbreaking, and now much sought after producers to town for their first Boston performances, Fens has always placed an emphasis on new and fresh, which brings him to his involvement with Shake, where he continues to help bring Boston the best in dance music. Hosting a weekly mix show on local station 90.3FM WZBC, he has been delivering well crafted selections from a wide variety of backgrounds, and you can always expect quality, and diversity, both known and otherwise.
