Iamsu! and DJ Mustard: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 4 2014

The Bay Area is like a black hole for rappers — lots of talented ones never escape the strong gravity of their home region, and even some of the boldest voices are content to remain big nugs in the region's small sack of weed. Iamsu! is not one of them. With Sincerely Yours, his proper debut out last month, the grinning Richmond 24-year-old aims to set off dancefloors on both coasts. The same easygoing charm from his features on E-40's "Function" and Sage the Gemini's "Gas Pedal" courses through songs like the coming-to-fame tale "No Secret" and vivid love story "Girls," proving that Iamsu! is really good at feeling good. Expect positive vibes and ghostly funk beats to come bursting out of Mezzanine when Iamsu! takes a hometown victory lap this weekend.

    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.'"
