A letter to our fans

Over 2.5 years (June 01 - January 04) Spectrum provided one of the Boston area’s only venues for eclectic dance music. We booked at least one guest performer, just about every week, breaking many new, local talents into the scene. We also played host to a large number of live/electronic performers, and DJs from all around the world, including artists like: Twiglight Circus Dub Sound System (Netherlands), Hrvatski, DJ /rupture (Spain), Zod Records crew (Milwaukee), Broklyn Beats crew (New York City), and over 50 other DJs and performers. The Phoenix Landing, except free drinks, never paid us anything. In return this kept the event free for the public.

We showed up and played every Tuesday because we love the music, and we love the fans of the night who love the music too. We always had a great crowd of friendly people and we will miss that. We would like to thank the Phoenix Landing for providing us with a space in which to do our thing, and for putting up with us when we strayed from the standard club DJ format in order to provide folks with high quality, and incredibly diverse styles of music.

Most of all we want to thank all of our fans. We had an ever-shifting core group of regulars who would be with us every week. To all of you who came and danced your faces off; to all of you who came and just listened the music; to all of you who came to hang with friends and get your drink on; to all the new people we met, we love you.

Spectrum was our home away from home every Tuesday night for over 2.5 years. The new hole in our schedule will allow us to put in more work on some of our other projects. Verbnine will continue to make his visual artwork. DJ Flack has got a bunch of tracks ready to come out on vinyl for all those other DJs out there to play, and he’s always working on new material. DJ C will be pushing his Mashit label into over drive. The 3rd Mashit 12” record is about to come out, and 5 more are currently in the pipeline. The records are selling well worldwide, and he plans to begin touring in support of Mashit in the coming months. C and Flack will be working together on their DuoTone project, making new music, and perfecting their live performance, which they plan to take on the road as well.

We miss our Tuesday night home and friends a lot. Thank you again for all your support.
