AUDIO: Dorm Sessions, Volume 4 (Heavy Rotation, 2007)
Berklee's student-run label Heavy Rotation Records released Dorm Sessions Volume 4 at a CD release concert in 2007, featuring several talented and innovative groups-all of which are led by either Berklee students or alumni. The collection provides evidence of HRR's continuing ability to provide listeners with discs exhibiting cutting-edge creativity and cohesive diversity.
Among the artists featured on Dorm Sessions Volume 4 (all groups include Berklee students or alumni), including seven-piece ska-punk band Big D and the Kids Table, veterans of the Warped Tour; Madi Diaz, who was featured in the 2005 documentary film Rock School; Spiritual Rez, who have opened for the Skatalites, Israel Vibration, and Gogol Bordello; the Teenage Symphonies, who played with the Click Five at Avalon; and up-and-coming Boston-based artists Kid:Nap:Kin, September Twilight, and Thick as Thieves.
Heavy Rotation Records is dedicated to discovering, recording, and promoting a selection of Berklee's unique and aspiring artists. Its very existence and excellent output is due in part to the progressive vision of Berklee leaders and the continuous support and recognition of the music community.
