The deal: As college semesters come to a close, the party is just beginning for Massachusetts College of Art and Design’s “Beat Research 2” students. The talented and enthusiastic members of the advanced class, one of two hands-on courses taught by resident DJs Antony Flackett and Pacey Foster, will make a final presentation to prove their skills to the professors. These up-and-comers will be able to display their distinctive styles and incorporate experimental soundscapes, crazy live performances and vocals, and wild videos to end the school year with a bang.


The DJs: DJ Flack and DJ Pace are proud to be joined by students to rock this monthly party.

What you’ll hear: “We try not to limit their styles,” said Flackett. He says attendees can expect to hear exotic beats and a range of genres drawn from the course such as abstract beat-oriented music to classic hip-hop.

Who goes: “One thing the students and I appreciate is the opportunity to present their work outside of school, to their friends, and to the general community. We usually see a diverse crowd,” said Flackett.

The tip: Flackett says people should come with an open mind. “Their beats can be surprising and sometimes they have more interesting work because they are still learning.”
