Ben Gray is The MAN.

We’ve had the privilege of bumping elbows with Ben Gray from the Weekly Dig on a few occasions.  All I can say is that he is not a mere mortal like you or I. His epic words penetrate the darkness of the world of journalism, illuminating it with his delectable metaphors.

Thanks Ben!

WHF ARTWORK FINAL

The man arrives at the village in an old shabby cloak and begins putting up flyers. The children are afraid, and the adults are wary. The aldermen eye him as he walks down the narrow streets, wondering what vice this traveler might be bringing to their peaceful, quiet little hamlet. But he obeys all the laws, and argues with no one, and no one is willing to send him on his way. At least not without quite a lot of drink, and no one is willing to show their drunkenness at this early hour.

Night falls. The line at the man’s tent is filled with the village’s youths. Visibly anxious, uncertain what it is that they will see, except that it will be something that they cannot see in their simple futures as shoe cobblers and farmers. Finally the tent opens, and one by one they pay the man and sit down inside, shifting uncomfortably with their own audacity.

The man appears. He wears a tight outfit in garish red, blue, green, and gold, unlike any of the youths have seen before – and he sports a perfectly groomed mustache and beard, waxed in place like an aristocrats. Then he takes out an instrument the likes of which none of the youths have seen before. They awoke the next morning with little memory of what happened next. But their sore legs and aching eyes suggest that they had been moving. And a few may have picked up a lingering scent of perfume.

But if they did, they put it out of their minds and went back to work.

SPF 5000-WHITE HOT FANTASY EP by SPF 5000

When we first reported on the existence of SPF 5000 a few months ago, we promised you that you would hear of them again. And guess what. You’re hearing of them again. Right now.

SPF 5000 has just dropped their White Hot Fantasy EP, which if you remember, is an awesomelaser-chainsaw-filled song about wanting people, wanting them to want you, and suggesting that you could be their white hot fantasy. If you don’t remember, scroll down a little bit and jog the awesome part of your memory.

The remixes seem like they’re collected with the idea of reminding everyone just how varied the dance music is in this world. One one end of the spectrum you have the electro-housey Team Jaguar remix, complete with analog bass booming and glitched-out vocal samples, on the other end you have the Burial-esque post-dub psychedeli-o-rama that is Boody B, and somewhere not-really-logically-on-this-spectrum-at-all, you have Nycpartyinfo (featuring LOUISAHHH!!!), whose remix sounds (I swear to God) like The Thrill Kill Kult circa 1991 — right down to the faux-piano chords. Anything that sounds like an album called Sexplosion! is just fine with me.

Keep your ears peeled — there are even more SPF goodies to look forward to in the coming months (We know this. Don’t ask us how we know, but there MIGHT just be some Parliament-inspired dance tunes slipping into your life very soon).

SPF is the Memorial Day Weekend Jam in the Boston Phoenix! Whoa.

Anybody who lives in the Metro Boston area knows the The Boston Phoenix is one of the major voices for the local music scene. So we were not only excited, but frankly floored when Michael Marotta named “White Hot Fantasy” as his Memorial Day Weekend Jam.

Beyond thanks Michael!

Check out the piece here – http://thephoenix.com/BLOGS/onthedownload/archive/2011/05/27/memorial-day-weekend-jam-spf-5000-quot-white-hot-fantasy-quot.aspx –  read the quotes below:

[memorial day weekend jam] SPF 5000 “White Hot Fantasy”

So you’re sitting at your desk, looking at the clock. Not even noon. More than five hours before you can ghost-town that drab-ass fluorescent-bulb office, breaking out through the front doors of doom like some pale-faced Boo Radley motherfucker finally allowed to see the light of a beautiful summer day. Shit is staring you in the face — THREE DAY WEEKEND. It’s calling out to you — the BBQs, the patios, the fruity cocktails, the shoulder straps, the bro-sandals, the jorts, the backwards Sox cap, the puppy water bowls, the bug-eye sunglasses, the endless empty bottles of delicious sweet Twisted Tea (well, for some of you)…

But before Memorial Day Weekend french kisses you hard and fast like that older, Bacardi-swigging camp counselor back when you were 13, you need to find some white-hott shit to bump in the car (drop-top down, playa!) as you roll down Commonwealth Avenue, Massachusettes Avenue, and all the other avenues that lead somewhere that isn’t your workplace.

We found it for you. Vocalist Amy Douglass and producer Rob Phillips have come together as SPF 5000 (no relation for former local heroes SPF Alot), a Boston/New York electro/freestyle duo that could make even a crippled man stand up and dance, and today dropped new single “White Hot Fantasy” on iTunes, Beatport, Jono and Amazon. The package also features remixes by DJ Sega, Dances With White Girls, Palms Out Sounds, and others, but we’re feeling the oridge. Peep this.

Remix Buddies Team Jaguar Pen About Us Madly

The Team Jaguar remix of “White Hot Fantasy” is a bouncy, old-school-ravin’ good time and a happy addition to our EP. When they’re not making throbbing beats in the studio, the TJ members also run the EDM blog Penned Madness. The boys were kind enough to give not just us, but ALL of our remixers a shout. Thanks guys!

Check out the story here – http://www.pennedmadness.com/2011/05/spf-5000.html – or read the quotes below:

SPF 5000


From up-and-coming darlings SPF 5000, we have their recently released single “White Hot Fantasy.” From Boston by way of NYC, SPF 5000 are ready to stake their claim on the dancefloor. Amy Douglas and Rob Phillips, those that form the SPF 5000, are no strangers to the topical musical community though.

Amy has been featured on Supra 1’s “Still Believe” and AC Slater’s Rave Super-group 92 Eternal to “Miracle Mile” by the Annex Project for KULT Records. While Rob’s time at the Berklee School of Music’s “Music Synthesis” Department and his love for the NYC dance scene over the years has translated into these dirty dance production skills and refreshing insight into dance culture.

For their first release, “White Hot Fantasy” (out on TOP BILLIN), SPF 5000 collected a slew of remixers and each did something wildly different than the last. DJ SegaCobra KramesDances with White GirlsNYCPARTYINFO (LOUISAHHHH and Steven Bloodbath), Boody B of Palms Out Sounds and Team Jaguar were the small army gathered – each one taking this track and bending it to their individual styles and wills.

Check out their remixes and the original below as well as the entire collection here on Beatport – http://beatport.com/s/r1zMpb
