Slam: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 9 2013

When it comes to contemporary dance music, it would be hard to overstate the influence of Glaswegian DJ duo Slam. As co-founders of Scottish dance music label Soma, they've been behind some of the most enduring releases of the past 20 years — not least of which was The New Wave, the EP that introduced the world to Daft Punk. But though their label looms large, it's really the duo's own productions that earned them a reputation as forerunners in the world of techno. Classic tracks like "Positive Education" and "Eterna" sound as fresh today as they did in the early '90s. It's been over a decade since Slam's last appearance in San Francisco, so be sure to catch the duo this Friday when they co-headline Public Works with H-Foundation.

    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.'"
