So this internet thing might achieve the impossibility of simultaneously being amongst hundreds of so-called friends while still being entirely alone. Thus the joy of personal connection combined with intimately shared musical taste is an experience so delightful it is only matched by the afterthought that this is partly a frustrating illusion created by the world wide web, and that in fact this connection is being made thousands of miles away from me, this time, in Boston.
Max Pearl, aka DJ Kat Fyte is our newest progenitor of the “nu whirled music” vision, coming in correct alongside other Mass. reps like Dancehall Diva Rizzla and the mother/father of the “nu whirled” Wayne Marshall, of Beat Research and Wayne & Wax.Today marks the introduction of DJ Kat Fyte the DJ and genre-destroyer, but also DJ Kat Fyte the promoter and curator.
Kat Fyte is involved in hosting touchstone DJ’s of the transnational bass movement at this year’s Boston Electronic Music Festival “Together”, taking place between February 8th and February 14th. Kat Fyte’s invites include Trash Menagerie short-list favorites DJ/Rupture, Kingdom, Kat Fyte himself, and the homie Taliesin of Dutty Artz, all corralling to put truth to power in the superhuman command of heavy bass music from the depths of the globe’s party basement.
To kick-off Together and originally mixed for Boston-based blog On A Friday, DJ Kat Fyte offers a very persuasive argument for the intersection of Dancehall rudeness and underground club music. I look forward to hearing more from this kid, as I’ll be even more thoroughly delighted to share a physical stage with him, rather than this lonely alternative.
