Unheard Rarities is a biweekly post featuring totally exclusive DJ mixes from Boston’s most progressive Electronic & Hip Hop producers.  Each one of these kids listens to and respects one another’s work.  For the most part, they are part of an intermingling community of electronic artists who, while differing greatly in style and taste,  feed off of each other’s progression.

Since first impressions are everything, I had to find somebody who could make a sort of candid ‘big bang’ if you will.  Here is a talented young underground hip-hop producer who is taking things to new levels by blurring stylistic lines & crossing barriers into future-land.  He creates a mural of sounds ranging from eastern instrumental samples to wall-rattling sub bass.

With a virtuous mentality that causes him to take his work very serious, Gossamer’s original pieces are capable of transcending their musical and artistic mediums.  He is an artist who’s work is authentic, therefore it creates authentic tension.  The kind of spine-chill that sticks with you after watching The Godfather.

Paired with his listening taste (which employs some really catchy electronic & hard hitting hip hop stuff), the image he creates with this mix comes together in a roller coaster ride that ends somewhere between South Central and Jupiter.  A religious grandparent may even call it devil’s music, but it makes us feel strangely at home.

Enjoy this exclusive 20 minute mix

    Way to go Future Boston Alliance, the entire rest of the city is watching and talking about TEDx Boston or the big BioTeck conference, and you guy are talking about Hip Hop. Could you be any less out of touch?

      The rest of the city of Boston is who? Follow the leader. Hmmm… Keep being out of touch Future Boston Alliance! Following the pack is what makes Boston limited. We need to know about diverse and creative opportunities and events since they are so few and far between. While everybody’s watching and talking about TEDx Boston or the so-called ‘big Bio Teck conference,’ keep discussing the entrepreneurial and creative things that result in Karmaloop, Facebook, Google and other innovative and creative industries and products – much like BioTeck or is it really Bio Tech. BTW – Nice diversity of music listed, represents some technological creativity and innovation. Thanks for sharing.
