One of Boston’s finest party starters is taking on the role of closer next week as we wrap up our Electric Summer music series at the W Hotel’s Descent nightclub, a four-night run that found us tearing it up downtown with M|O|D, JASS, and Into The Alpha.
To get us all worked up proper for their live performance September 20, Somerville electro-funk boom-makers SPF 5000 have created an exclusive 40-minute mixtape just for the party, linking up a batch of their own remixed and reloaded dance tracks — from the throbbing sizzle of “White Hot Fantasy” to house banger “Doorknockers” to theie rousing cover of Prince's "Erotic City" — as well as their own bootleg of Jogyo’s “Thundacat,” which will soon get released on Dither Down Records.
It’s a sexier and more tribal turn from the sweaty purveyors of summertime grooves, a perfect beat-driven antidote for the seasonal swing and the right way to close out our Theatre District dance party series.
Download the entire mix at below, or stream is on Soundcloud, then head underground to Descent on Stuart Street as we put a fancy-pants bow on our Electric Summer. RSVP here, if you're into that sort of thing. You suspect you are.
