Jesse Rose: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 24 2010

With residencies in his home base of Berlin and his home country of Britain, as well as megaclub/festival gigs galore, DJ and producer Jesse Rose has plenty of opportunities to field-test his signature wonky bass bombs. He's so busy dropping cheeky, chopped-up 4/4 funk that that one wonders how he finds time to release the campy-cool tunes he finds percolating along the way. Yet along with spinning, Rose runs the Made to Play label, which was recently celebrated on the compilation Re:Play — Five Years of Made to Play. Inspired by equal parts hip-house and deep techno, Rose lays slow-burning, organic grooves on rude, pitch-bent basslines. It's a sound also celebrated by San Francisco's own Claude VonStroke, of dirtybird/mothership records, who will join Rose for their first appearance together since 2006.

  • 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.'"
