Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Everyone from local organizations to the American Cancer Society to the NFL have promoting pink in an effort to raise money and raise awareness for the battle against Breast Cancer. During a time when the dance music scene has been taking a lot of flack for low points among the community, a few key groups are making an effort to change that opinion. Elektrik Entertainment, White Raver Rafting, and Your EDM have teamed up to host a series of four podcasts featuring some of the hottest artists in the industry. For every 1,000 plays the podcasts get they’ll be donating $50 to the American Breast Cancer society. All you have to do to support Project Pink is listen to great music and share it with your friends.
I’m very impressed by not only the strides these groups have taken to make a difference, but also by the lineup of DJs they’ve enlisted. Pierce Fulton wraps up the series with his awesome hour-long guest mix. Having walked the same campus as Pierce at the University of Vermont, where this blog saw its start, it’s always refreshing to hear new material from him – whether in the form of an original track, remix, or DJ set. What I like about Pierce Fulton is he’s not afraid to take chances and that his style can range from Trance to Electro-house to Progressive and even some Bass Music (Trap, Dubstep, Moombah, etc). I always make sure to focus on Pierce Fulton’s mixes because I know they’re going to be exactly my style – hard-hitting drops and melodic breaks, with edits mixed all the way in. This particular mix features tracks by Mord Fustang, Eric Prydz, Norin & Rad, and Mat Zo – all of whom are some of my favorites in the industry. We also get a crushing mashup of Dada Life vs MUST DIE! – Feed The Fever Dream Part 1, which took me completely by surprise. Even a bigger treat was the mashup of Eric Prydz’s “Every Day” with Rustie’s “Slasher” (not listed in the track list, but it’s there!).
Included in the set below are the other three mixes from Chachi (coming to Boston’s Estate Nightclub tonight), Hyperbits, and the Disco Fries. Pierce Fulton also returns to Boston in a few weeks to play Prime Nightclub.
