Club preview: Gui Boratto 

Wednesday, Apr 7 2010

São Paulo–based Gui Boratto maps tech-house's valleys of rhythm and peaks of melody. At his best, the DJ and producer pushes his carefully measured percussion into an insistent crease, avoiding distracting friction or overpowering gloss along the furrow. It's a relatively luminous channel he navigates, a steady stream of midtempo anthems with periodic swells of pop-informed euphoria. The set would seem almost cheesy during certain trance-worthy choruses, were it not for the occasional descent into a grainy eddy of minimal techno.

    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
