Tomorrow night, the Winter White Tour (MASS EDMC, NV Concepts, Big Night Entertainment Group) makes its stop at Boston’s House of Blues featuring the STACKED line-up of Zedd, Alex Metric, Tommie Sunshine, and resident DJ Bamboora (click to check out his exclusive guest mix for us). Most of you are probably familiar with Zedd’s work and for better or worse you either love him or hate him, but you may not be privy to Alex Metric or Tommie Sunshine – neither of whom I’ve seen live but are two DJs I’m very excited to check out for the first time.
Tommie Sunshine is a legendary producer and DJ hailing from the original home of House music – Chicago. He has a very distinct look and has been very outspoken in the world of dance music over the past couple years. Most recently he received some attention when he was kicked off the decks at New York City’s W.i.P. (read why HERE), but I can assure you he is an act you want to see if you’re even a mild fan of House music. Check out his Growth EP in case you missed it. Also make sure to check out his very insightful interview with Zedd.
Alex Metric is in a class of his own. The British producer and DJ has managed to stay out of the mainstream limelight, but if you’re really following good dance music (or if you read our blog), then you already know what I’m talking about. Alex Metric’s “Rave Weapon” may be one of my favorite House tracks of all time, combining both a funky beat, catchy sample, and syncopation that makes it a true crowd-hyper. His most recent EP Ammunition Pt. 2 is fantastic and his mixes are always on point.
The Winter White Tour is in its second year and is showing no signs of slowing down. This year they’re doing it bigger and better, and stopping at one of Boston’s premier concert destinations shows us exactly that. If you’re going to the show please remember to wear your winter whites, as it is a themed party. And if you don’t have plans yet to go, make sure to grab a ticket ASAP because limited tickets are available and it WILL sell out. You can also go HERE for the Facebook event. Hope to see you there!
