Glitch Mob: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 22 2011

L.A. laptop trio the Glitch Mob has risen fast in its five-year existence, from small clubs to ballrooms, from underground mixtapes to remixing the White Stripes and Daft Punk. Ed Ma, Justin Boreta, and Josh Mayer deserve props for explicitly pursuing future sounds at a time when other indie artists are caught in retro orbits. That includes performing live with Lemur controllers, touchpad devices connected to computers that generate beats, bass notes, and their trademark enormous electro-synths. The Glitch Mob isn't subtle; it takes an adrenaline-charged approach to post-hip-hop instrumental electronic music.

  • 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.'"
