Julio Bashmore: Show Preview 

Tuesday, Jul 29 2014

Julio Bashmore emerged from Bristol producing impeccably machined throwback house. His bouncy, synth-stabbed and cymbal-driven four-on-the-floor and reverb-washed disco gained early support from San Francisco's own Claude VonStroke and his Dirtybird imprint, followed by tremendous critical and commercial success with single "Au Seve" and production work for house diva Jessie Ware. Bashmore has balanced and updated the influences of jackin' Chicago house, crispy early '90s acid, seductive late-'90s French filter house, elastic '80s funk, and wiggling New Beat. Still finalizing his debut album, Bashmore will road test his hook-friendly, sub-rattling tendencies as roving house-music connoisseurs Lights Down Low and DJ Dials bring him out of the underground and into Mezzanine this Saturday.

  • 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.'"
