Here is the complete and continuous recording of the event, with sets by Peter Bailey, Chuck Caseroc, Shannon Shalako, and Randy Deshais.
This is a bonus post to Shannon Shalako – Live in Boston 2011, where you can find my individual set from the night, as well as a full review of the event and the story of how I came to be a resident DJ at the Phoenix Landing.
This is the story of how I came to be a resident DJ at The Phoenix Landing, an unassuming Irish pub across the river from Boston, USA, and of an epic night on the water had by nearly 300 music lovers this past Independence Eve.
In 1996 I was a college student and DJ of underground electronic dance music based in Boston, USA. Though I had at that point achieved some success as a DJ in my short career of 2-3 years, having performed around the country for crowds of thousands, I was feeling that the meaningful experiences the rave scene had provided were coming far less frequently than they had before, and that a more superficial, less music-oriented attitude had become common place amongst promoters and patrons of those events.

Though several promoters had been throwing smaller events in New England for about a year by this time, it was in the first months of 1993 that things really took off for the New England scene.
