Ital: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 19 2012

Daniel Martin-McCormick's musical résumé encompasses a mélange of guises and styles — including post-hardcore freakouts, scorched post-punk dub, and lo-fi disco — and several monikers, including the local band Mi Ami and the more dance-focused output of Ital. His most recent Ital LP, Dream On, concentrates on murky, chopped-up deep house and funky, distressed techno. There's the knotted, white noise-swept "Despot" and "Boi," which transition into the savagely processed "Eat Shit (Waterfalls Mix)" and the sputtering digital detritus of "Enrique." Deep within all of these are subtle melodies and dense, percussive grooves that are sure to fill a drone-receptive dancefloor.

  • 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.'"
