Label head and founder of the seminal Night Slugs label, Bok Bok (Alex Sushon) draws from a creative pool that has launched some of the best club material of all time. Started in the MySpace era with co-founder L-Vis 1990, Night Slugs has been delivering ground breaking sounds and hosting legendary club nights way before many of his contemporaries. The hallmark of Bok Bok’s career is to curate and foster emerging genres. His ability to transcend music, sounds, and definition, while staying true to his grime and bass heavy roots, has set him and the Night Slugs crew apart by a wide margin. Often imitated, but rarely bested, he has released on some of the best labels around, from Sound Pellegrino, Monkeytown, Brainfeeder, Mixpak, and countless others, yet his true legacy lies with Night Slugs, which brings us to our next esteemed guest…
As one of the founders of the Night Slugs label alongside Bok Bok, L-Vis 1990 defined a fresh approach to club music that acknowledges its history without being burdened by it. His tracks are perfectly balanced, with jacking grooves to get everyone off the wall and the production ingenuity to make the heads freak out. We can’t imagine a better place to host him than the Good Life basement. Get ready to move.

Since he first took to DJing in 2008, local Fens (Matt Rohr) has carved his way through Boston through countless storied club nights and parties. From his early beginnings with Banana Peel Records, where his collaborations with CreateSpace Collab helped launch the Good Life staple, Sweet Shop, to his involvement with the JASS crew, which helped bring several groundbreaking, and now much sought after producers to town for their first Boston performances, Fens has always placed an emphasis on new and fresh, which brings him to his involvement with Shake, where he continues to help bring Boston the best in dance music. Hosting a weekly mix show on local station 90.3FM WZBC, he has been delivering well crafted selections from a wide variety of backgrounds, and you can always expect quality, and diversity, both known and otherwise.
