cakewalk

Growing up and cleaning the house to jazzy, soulful, disco funky stuff (thanks to his parents) while also getting that old school hip hop/R&B influence (thanks to his big bro) is where it all began for James Walker aka cakewalk. Jump ahead many years and musical phases later, after DJing college parties in Boston/NH and attending the MMMMaven DJ & Music Production courses, he quickly found his place in the Boston underground scene.

Since then cakewalk has become a resident with BINARY and Flight 617 which are two of the top underground parties in Boston. He has also shared the stage with electronic music hero’s like Soul Clap, Purple Disco Machine, Way Out West, Little Boots, Chus + Ceballos, No Regular Play, Beckwith, and Ben Silver of Orchard Lounge.

This should give you an idea of the wide range of musical waves that can be present during a cakewalk set. Expect to hear anything from the funky sounds of disco to those deep latin tribal safari ride feels. Being known for playing multiple different parties and being able to catch a vibe while still blending genres is one example of what sets him apart from the basic DJs that are heard too often today.

From playing rooftop parties in NYC to international clubs like Habitat Living Sound, cakewalk is quickly making his name known and funking up dance floors all over the globe.

Sharing our vision of sustainable festivals along with the experience of a lifetime.

WILD THINGS - We can't thank you all enough for sharing in what was surely our favorite Wild Woods to date. Every year our family grows and this year was no exception; from our old friends The Reliquarium, Brainwave Laser & FX, LLC, Sonic Beating, Encore Event Services, LLC and VII Studios, to our new friends Rhizome NYC, Sermon, Hennessey Sound Design, to our amazing performers headed up by Katie Rose and our new staff members, y'all are the most talented group of creators and problem solvers the Northeast has to offer. This was the smoothest year yet all thanks to the synchronicity and flexibility between our crews.

Collectively working ourselves down to our bones is all made worthwhile when we get to look out and see all of your smiling faces in the crowd. Five years have gone by in the blink of an eye and we are amazed by the growth, lessons, and friends we've gained along the way. To simply leave it at "thank you" is perhaps the greatest understatement of all time.

We love you all!

-Ryan, Dan, and Jeff
