groovefire Posted March 18 Report Share Posted March 18 RISE's own residents Groovefire regularly travel about 450 miles south to Washington DC to play arguably that city's premier underground house music night, Pulse Saturdays @ Andalu. This time, though, Pulse comes north to Boston.Joining Groovefire @ RISE on April 1st will be Pulse DC resident DJs J-Punch and Royce Haven. J-Punch is one of the founders and proprietors of Pulse DC. Musically, he draws upon his love for warm ambient sounds, dope disco, funky tribal beats, epic melodies, and tweaked-out human voices. Under â€œJ-Punchâ€ and his alternate production tag â€œHook the Captainâ€, he has original releases out on Global Underground, Climax Recordings, and System Recordings. J-Punch has collaborated with the likes of Trafik, Shelley Harland, Barry Gilbey, Fretwell, and Open Air, and has seen his releases land on Global Underground CD's, and both Balance Record Pool and Billboard Breakout Charts. Royce Haven's music roots date back to his early years in NYC where he grew up listening to the electro pop, synth-driven sounds of the 80's and falling in love with the growing movement of HIP-HOP. It was in 1989 after he moved to DC where he was first introduced to house music. Royce is now a resident at Pulse, Dragonfly and spinning regularly at Glow, Spank, FIVE, all in DC, and plays other parties all along the east coast, dropping a diverse mix of house, breaks, tech-house, trance and techno. Royce also keeps himself busy in his studio working on an EP with collaborations from Samio of Yoshitoshi and J-Punch of Global Underground.
