(In this week's Circuits column, David Day profiles the WERS "Revolutions" triumvirate. Addendum: 'ERS honcho Alden Fertig (above, at right) doesn't just let the music play, he also makes some himself.)
Brookline resident Alden Fertig runs Emerson’s radio station WERS, but he's been DJing since he was 14 and is a bit of a techno prodigy. He claims not to listen to much new stuff these days, but his new stuff belies that statement. Getting its worldwide debut on OTD, his most recent track, “Let Go” is a nanotrance prog monster that grows from a mustard seed into a mountain. It recalls the recent output of uberhip labels like Poker Flat and Kompakt, as the numerous arcs dip and dive into beatpools with a Greg Louganis-ish grace. The song is also filled with more melodies than a sunny Sunday afternoon. It's the jim-jam.
