THE THIRD ANNUAL NEW ENGLAND JUNGLIST MASSIVE
We started this Junglist Massive back in 2015, so it’s still very much in it’s infancy. Somehow though, it’s manifested into something bigger than I’m sure most of you ever imagined it could be. Since “The idea was and always will be bringing together all Junglists world wide” we wanted to keep that same idea going by inviting MORE Junglists from around the COUNTRY to join in our festivities. We sent out the message from PA to LA and all around the USA for you, the New England Junglist Massive, that have come to dance the night away!! And our new spot, The JohnW. Higgins Armory in Worcester MA is the new home of our event. A venue that has been sought after for hosting events, yet until now has never been used for such a show. But more on that later….
Now I know you have all been waiting patiently.…..
Well wait no more!!!

SHOEBOX – Denver, CO
Shoebox is a name mostly unknown; however, his radio project, record labels, and general passion for electronic music dating back to the demo-scene in the 90’s have led to some great accomplishments that have caught global recognition and allowed him the opportunity to open people’s minds to a unique array of underrated producers and artists.
DnBradio, formed in 2002 from his apartment in a tiny southern U.S. town, not only brought innovation to the pirate radio scene, but also became an effective outlet for fringe electronic music. Artists such as Amit, Fracture, Paradox, Fanu, Evol Intent, Ewun, Phace, and countless others, at that time, went mainly unnoticed by commercial UK radio; but found a common place on DnBradio’s playlists.
“Pirate radio always existed to give fringe music the airtime it deserved.”
As a pirate station, DnBradio prided itself on giving due respect to under-rated artists, and in turn opening people’s minds to something they never knew existed. This unique flavor quickly made the project a top destination for dnb enthusiasts.
Record labels Section 8 Recordings and Plush are the most recent label projects via shoebox — both labels have received continuous chart placements, features, and recognition on a global-scale in dnb/jungle/dubstep genres since 2007. On these labels, you’ll find a wide array of top draw bass engineers like: TRUTH, Stunna, 360joYnt, Quentin Hiatus, Nitri, iBenji, SPL, Megalodon, Baku, Olie Bassweight, and The Neft. On the harder tip — Sick Cycle, Culprate, Unsub, Depone, Current Value, Proton Kid, Hostage… and over 50 other artists.
In 2011, Shoebox took his DnBradio brand and partnered up with Maggie Despise from Recon, a local Denver promoter. The two combined forces to bring that underground flavor of drum & bass back to the city, and by 2013 the crew was awarded title of #1 Drum & Bass Promoter for the region (The Westword 2013).
“This complete journey has afforded me the opportunity to share the stage with some of most exciting producers of the decade including ICICLE, ASC, Ed Rush & Optical, Datsik, LTJ Bukem, Hybris, Sinistarr, and Total Science. I’m very proud.”
Mighty Mike Saga – Philadelphia, PA
Back in 1988, at the age of 11, I first heard Rigor Mortis by A Split Second. Little did I know at the time that a song I heard in my youth on a local Texas college radio station would change my perspective on music forever. Electronic music then became a driving force in my life. From the raves and clubs I religiously attended in my late teenage years to the parties I promoted and organized in my early 20’s, the love of music, and the need to share that love with anyone that would listen led to my inevitable career as a DJ.
Ever diligent to expand my horizons, I began collecting a variety of electronic styles (ebm, darkwave, terror ebm, synthpop, etc.) Patiently I taught myself the art of beat matching and mixing these forms of music into my sets and by 2005 I was offered a residency at SHOCK THERAPY. Attaining a good reputation and the freedom to express myself creatively I began organizing events fusing EDM commonly played at raves with Gothic/Industrial music. The FULL MOON GATHERING and C.H.U.D. events of late 2005 are still fondly remembered by many as a huge success in bringing people from many musical tastes and backgrounds together in harmony.Opening new ears to the Gothic/Industrial sound caught the attention of a number of promoters. To my credit and honor I performed at DRACULA’S BALL, the largest Gothic/Industrial event in Philadelphia and usually play weekly at Philly’s longest running Gothic/Industrial/80’s alternative night NOCTURNE. I am featured in NYC frequently at the SMack! and Byte parties, and went on to play the BLACK SUN FESTIVAL II in New Haven Connecticut.
As a Dj I love what I do, and I am completely self promoted. I’m living my dreams of opening minds, and bringing the music I love to the masses!
