Binary is a record label. We’ve got seven artists. The blog is just an arm thats here for us to interact with you guys. You wouldn’t think we’d be out promoting other people trying to do the same stuff as us. You’re wrong though. When I heard some good kids with dreamwave in their heart were trying to build a scene in Boston, we were nothing but eager to throw them a shout and try and get the word out.
GMGN is short for Good Morning Good Night, a moniker for 3 guys from Boston that do a DJ show with live, customized visuals. They’ve been hard at work putting their show together for quite some time now, and after much patience, they’re releasing the beast they’ve created this Thursday at Harper’s Ferry in Brighton. Are you anywhere within 200 miles of Boston and been dreaming about going to a dreamwave show? Here’s your chance. Pack up and roll out to see these guys throw down the heat.
GMGN is an awesome concept because it represents a lot of what we believe in at Binary. Good Morning is the light, the airy morning breeze. Good night is the sweat, the raunch and the grit. To us this split is where dance music gets interesting, for GMGN its what their music is all about, working both the sunrise and the sunset. Needless to say Im excited for when their productions start seeing the light of day. Fortunately for me, I’ll be in Boston this week while traveling and I’ll be swinging by the show myself to check it out. Here’s to dreamwave sweeping the nation!
If you need more info, head right over to their myspace for all the goodies.
A nice treat today. It turns out the these Boston boys are actually moving in with a good friend of ours, Werewolf By Night, who we’ve posted on a couple times before. We’re like teenage girls when we find out that he’s done a new remix for us to listen to. He MURDERED the Daft Punk remix we commissioned him for, and best of all, it seems like each remix he does gets better and better. Can’t say enough good things about this guy. He’s dreamwave to the bone. When we found out he’d be at the forefront of the dreamwave scene in Boston, it only made sense to give you guys another dose of his music.
Here is his remix for Palm Highway Chase’s song “Invisible Beach”
Like a lot of his remixes, WBNight layers synths over synths over synths creating atmospheres that swirl and evolve as the song moves. Often his songs feel less like they’re arranged and more like they age as you listen through them. They feel alive, which is a pretty badass concept now that I think about it.
This remix is no different, as the drums and bass drop in over the sound of waves lapping on a secluded beach, there are no less than 5 parts swirling around. This number only goes up as the song rolls along.
If you’re going by GMGN’s analogy, then this song would be the Good Morning half of the spectrum for sure. In fact, given the sounds at the beginning of the song, my first thought was that it sounds like waking up on a beach. See, I’ve done this a time or two, and its really one of lifes best pleasures, especially when you’ve got someone to share it with. The beach, a sunrise… it doesn’t get any better. WBNights shiny synths just serve to accentuate the feeling that SOMETHING is happening…. SOMETHING is changing and rising here.
Please take note of the amazing arpeggiated lead line that rolls in after the breakdown. It makes that buildup so buttery smooth that it gives me shivers every time I hear it. Cheers to that. This song is for fantasy land and morning dreams of better places.
Come out on Thursday, see you all in Boston!
