The Last Party Report of '08

Indeed, the year has come and gone in the blink of an eye. A black President of the United States of America, A shoe-assaulted President of the United States of America, a crumbling economy, and a Jamaican World Record Holder are a handful of the images that will be etched into the 2008 monolith. December 9th was The Party Report's last Radio Show of the year, and featured a live mix from DJ/Producer Oliver Huntemann for the Play! [Live] compilation series. Huntemann is a German DJ who actually used to breakdance back in the day (or so he claims). His style, which could be confused with minimal techno, sounds more like a techno-influenced-minimalized-electrohouse, if that makes sense to anyone. He likes to collaborate with Stephan Bodzin, who apparently enjoys DJing with this touch-screen interface device.

Will we ever see the old Kanye again?

Now, lets not take this post in the wrong light. There's nothing wrong with experimenting. One can't blame artists for being artists who create art. 'Pushing the boundaries' and 're-shaping the game' is not a sin. All things considered, you can't blame the man for being introspective in his latest album, '808's and Heartbreak.'

All I am saying is that I hope when Kanye West is ready to put down the Auto-Tune, he remembers what GOOD music is.

By the by, there will be another 90's Jam on Friday the 19th at Z-Square in Harvard Square. House classics, all vinyl, all pajamas.

Celebrating 50 Years of Bossa Nova

In celebration of half a century of Bossa Nova, one of Brazil's most popular music genres, The Party Report aired a show that featured all of the Bossa Nova classics, as well as other Brazil-inspired tunes both old and new. I was also fortunate enough to be able to interview Celia Bianconi,Tufts' Portuguese professor, alongside one of her students, Juliana. Below is a juuuuicy section of music followed by the interview itself. Vamos lá!

The Party Report: Turkey Techno

Tuesday, November 25th edition of the Party Report. Greetings, fellow partiers.
It has been something of a wait, but it is finally here- my first radio show post. Below is the track listing. This mix has two parts: this week's Seminal Seven (basically my own 'Top Ten Countdown', except there are seven) and my own continuous mix. Enjoy!


Wednesday, October 29

Welcome. Welcome to music. Welcome to the fresh. Welcome to being original instead of trying. Welcome to just having a good time, without knowing the names of the songs, the bands, or the DJs. Welcome to remembering that night when that song sounded different that time. Welcome to belting the choruses out loud until you forget why you had started in the first place. Welcome to bringing it back so that it can bring you back. Welcome to feeling it.

Welcome to The Party Report.

It's a simple concept. I broadcast a live radio show from WMFO 91.5 FM, a freeform radio station in Medford, Massachusetts, and this website (as its main function) archives & documents the broadcasts.

Let me explain in more detail.

My radio show airs on Tuesday mornings from 11am until 1pm EST. If you would like to hear it LIVE, you must:

  1. Tune your FM radio to 91.5 FM while in the Medford/Somerville/Boston Area, or

  2. Go to and click on the Windows Media Player or the iTunes icon at the top of the page.

However, if you would rather hear me DEAD (i.e. pre-recorded), this blog is your best bet.

The Party Report is a place to hear the latest in house, techno, and whichever sub-genres the DJs are filling their crates with at the moment, in addition to a place for local DJs and producers to be heard. That being said, if you would like to be featured on The Party Report, be it guest mix, interview, or to promote an event in the Boston area, don't hesitate to e-mail forcedtripledjs at gmail dot com.
