Duke Dumont: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jul 24 2013

In 2012, Duke Dumont stepped out from behind the mixing console with two For Club Play EPs, and he's been in the spotlight ever since. Known for emotionally charged remixes, Dumont compiles disco, tech-house, and U.K. garage influences into harmonious, spiritual sounds. His 2013 chart breakthrough "Need U (100%)" features plucky, Detroit-inspired synth stabs stacked with a detuned bass rumble and insistent vocals. Latest single "Hold On" (featuring frequent co-writer MNEK) is deep, sultry house wrapped in ghostly melodies. Dumont's taste level is as impeccable as his production is tidy, and he should be well complemented this Saturday by opener Cyril Hahn, who submerges R&B edits and moody rhythms into epic, atmospheric baptisms.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    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.'"
