SPEAKING IN CODE!
13, April 2009
so i have been waiting for this a couple years now, but finally on april 23rd we all get to see it premier in boston. i’m talking about Speaking In Code, a documentary by Amy Grill that follows several figures in the electronic music scene, from Modeselektor to Ellen Allien to the Kompakt records crew and few people in between including basstownian David Day.

speaking of david day, what an extraordinary dude. i first met him when he wrote for the boston phoenix and he found my mixtape on the counter of Proletariat and gave me my first press ever as a dj. he booked jeff’s and mine old band, the peasantry, at the great scott at a party called basstown a little bit later on. sadly. jeff was hit pretty bad by a car (he is ok now obviously) and the band had to pull out but i ended up playing one of my first club dj gigs. david asked me to join the resident crew at basstown and basically started my career. many great things came from that, including opening up for my hero’s and meeting some of my favorite people who were part of the basstown crew as well as getting to present new local groups to be featured at the saturday night allston party. one of those groups was passion pit, which lead to being asked to join the group 8 months later, which lead to my eventual absence from basstown haha. anyways, i owe a ton to david. and i’m really happy to see the film he worked on so hard (and is featured in) and i hope it helps to get him some of the recognition he deserves for his relent-less and self-less commitment to the boston music scene.
so check it out if you can, i know i will if it isnt sold out already…
