True Productions wants you to make:

**** A - N E W - Y E A R ' S ****

****** R E Z O L U T I O N ******

at the Asylum - Springfield, MA

// A R E A 1: (main arena)

- FRANKIE BONES (2:45-4:00 AM- techno/ tech house)


(Sonic Groove, East Music Group, Moonshine, System Recordings/ NYC)

Not only at the forefront of a musical revolution, Frankie was at its very inception on both sides of the Atlantic, and he has been an integral part of this culture ever since. He is Considered the Godfather of the American rave scene, Frankie helped shape the hard-edge East Coast sound. It was on his first Transatlantic journey to the UK that dramatically changed his life forever – spinning in front of 25,000 people at "Energy" (an event just out side of London) gave him his inspiration to bring "the gift of dance" to America. From that point on, he came back to the US to lay the groundwork for what became the foundation of "East Coast Techno." Throughout the nineties, Frankie continued to bring music to the masses through his label Sonic Groove Recordings, and his store Sonic Groove Records in Greenwich Village, NYC (which still stands today as one of the best independent techno record shops). His relentless touring schedule has landed him in every corner of the globe through THOUSANDS of different events, which have all played a role in the making of this rave icon. His djing career has seen him playing alongside the likes of his contemporaries Carl Cox, Jeff Mills, and Josh Wink, just to name a few. These are just a few reasons why you know his name! In closing, True Productions is very proud to welcome in this New Year with the man, the myth, the legend.... FRANKIE BONES!

- STEVE PORTER (1:30-2:45 AM- tech house/ techno/ progressive)

(Growroom, Fade, Bedrock, magnified rec, balance promote group/ MA/ NYC)

No one deserves to celebrate the closing of 2002 more than Steve Porter, for this past year has been a year to remember for Steve Porter. He has gone from being a local Western Mass DJ/ Growroom Records employee (1997-2001), to recently co-headlining a global tour as SASHA's opening dj. There is no question that Steve's career has grown tremendously over the last few years. He originally discovered the world of dance music while flipping through the “Techno†section of the local Amherst CD shop in 1996, and it was only months before he was spinning these beats. He later landed himself a retail position in "Growroom Records"in '97. This position expanded his musical palette, and gave him the best access to the music he loved. By the Summer of ’98, Steve’s passion grew beyond just DJing as he began purchasing equipment to make his own tracks. With no musical training, he began to put together tracks purely on observation and study. It wasn't long before 4 demo tracks found their way into Chris Fortier’s hands. Chris immediately recognized Steve's talent, and brought him under his wing. These 4 tracks were polished and released in the summer of 1999 on Fade Records, Steve’s new home. Steve quickly became noticed with top DJs such as Sasha and John Digweed playing the tracks. The second release was titled “Sensor" and “Mindless†and took Steve to another level. To date these two tracks have made their way onto 10 compilations including Anthony Pappa’s NuBreed CD for Global Underground. Riding this wave of success, many labels from around the world began seeking Steve to remix tracks for their labels. He has since created some of the classic remixes of 2001, and he has continued to ride that wave straight through 2002 with hugely successful releases off of labels such as Fade, Bedrock & Magnified Recordings.

Our New Year's Resolution is to no longer take anything for granted, for if we have learned ANYTHING in this past year 2002; we learned that things we hold dearest to out hearts can be taken away at any given moment. As we come to the close of another year, and we watch our places to dance continue to dwindle away more and more as they have been, we at True give thanx to the fact that we have the Asylum to call our home. MOST of all, we would like to thank all of you for partying with us here through the years, for none of this would be possible without you're support. As we head into our fourth year here at the Asylum, we are constantly working to broaden our horizons and yours through the power of music and community. We ask you to put in a little work as well! Share in the same Resolution as us; and that is to NEVER take anything for granted. Step into every party as if it was your LAST! With the ever-looming RAVE Act picking up speed, we may not have a place to dance in the near future! But we can't let that kill us... We must work together now more than EVER before. Contribute more energy than you ever have before! Appreciate your fellow brother and sister more than you ever have before! Dance harder than you have ever danced before!! All we ask is for you to all rise up, be seen, be heard; show them that WE HAVE A SOUL!!, for they can NEVER take that away from us...

Pravda alway's has a great NYE turnout from what I hear. Ive never been there on NYE but heard great things.

I'll be DJing there this year from 10pm to 3am spinning filtered house, tribal, and vocal house. It's 21+, proper dress, doors are 10 - 3am. Not sure what the cover is yet. As soon as I find out i'll post it here. The packages usually including great food, champange, and breakfest late night.

Also, Tantra is hosting a big after hours starting at 3am and going well past noon on Jan 1st. They are booking most of the DJ's who have done the after hours this year. Rick Naples, Taner K, Nailz, Manolo and many more will be there for sure. Again as soon as I get the whole lineup and more detail i'll post it up.
