PROFILE. Valentine’s Day is this weekend, which means one of two things: You’ve either got some sappy romantic plans, or you’re gonna go all out on the town to forget about your love life. As Boston-based DJ and producer Brenden Wesley puts it, “Basically, Valentine’s Day is for the lovers. Sunday is for the Lonely Hearts.”
With that in mind he has assembled a lineup of top DJ talent for a party called Lonely Hearts Klub at Good Life on Sunday, including Chris Devlin of Spank Rock, DJ Knife of Fresh Produce and John Barera of FTW. Wesley, who has held residencies at many of Boston’s hot spots (as well as performed all over the country) and just released a record titled “New Wave Hookers” on Boston label Headtunes, says he specializes in “finding those long-lost gems that time forgot.”
Wesley has a bit of difficulty choosing his go-to jam, but says the dub version of “Feels Good (Carrots & Beets)” by Electra is a sure thing.
“Classic Electro-Boogie from 1982,” he comments on the track, before reconsidering, “or maybe ‘Heat You Up (Melt You Down)’ by Shirley Lites from 1983.”
