David "DeeCee" Corran has done his best to shake up the local live music and club scene since he started his original Soul Shakedown party at Club Six in 2003. He has presented reggae bands from Chile, Hawaii, New Zealand, and South Africa in addition to top local hip-hop and global music DJs. His events feature international talent, but manage to maintain a friendly Bay Area ambiance. The emphasis is all local at DeeCee's eighth anniversary bash, which boasts three rooms and 25 DJs. Hip-hop acts Jern Eye, Deuce Eclipse, 40Love, and MC Radio Active's ACTIV808 project bring their craft to the Home Grown room, while live reggae groups Jah Wave, Rocker-T, and Winstrong will chant it up in the Bashment Basement. DJs have their say, too, as Jah Warrior Shelter, Broken Silence, Green B, Smoky, Sake One, DJ Kurious, Mr. Lucky, and Beatnok take to the decks with dancehall, remixes, and club classics.

  • 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.'"
