Romanowski 

Party in My Pants

Despite rolling with Future Primitive Sound (a visible local crew with a Lower Haight music and art boutique that hosts exciting and genre-bending club nights), Romanowski remains one of S.F.'s more underrated DJ talents. There are a number of reasons for this, but chief among them is that Romanowski doesn't pander to fleeting trends, instead preferring to hone his individuality, exploring the connections among rocksteady, rarefied funk grooves, and hip hop. Party in My Pants is his second EP of original productions, though it flows like a lively DJ set. The EP is at its craziest on "ETs Phone Bill," where a computerized voice puts a twist on normal party chants: "Don't stop the Planet Rock/ Mr. Spock has a big, fat ...." Then there's the wicked bounce of the Middle Eastern-flavored closer, which bears the absurdly funny moniker "Taliban Rockers." You never really know what you'll find in the pockets of Romanowski's pants, but chances are it will be something fun.

  • 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.'"
