Pantha du Prince: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Oct 31 2012

Berlin-based producer Hendrik Weber, best known for his work as Pantha du Prince, makes the melodic tech-house equivalent of a time-lapse nature documentary. Weber's studies in resonance unfurl delicately, deliberately, on an innate schedule where every tone adds to the ecosystem. The ambiance is autumnal and subdued; there are no harsh, glaring elements. Soft, static-fringed bass lines and breezy synth pads form an environment nourished by bell tones, chimes, xylophones, and other percussive instruments. Live, Weber detunes his bass into more of a growl and thickens his skittering percussion, but he still delights in exploring blissed-out, crystalline melodies.

    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.'"
