South Rakkas Crew: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Apr 18 2012

This 4/20, instead of smoking out on Hippie Hill, take a more adventurous trip and submit yourself to the global rhythms of South Rakkas Crew. Jamaica-born, U.S.-based Dennis "D-Rakkas" Shaw and Canadian producer-songwriter Alex Greggs splice together a mishmash of sounds — dancehall, electro, moombahton, reggae, dubstep, even art-rock — into tracks and mixes that rank among the most potent dancefloor-fillers being made anywhere right now. The Crew's "Renegade Rasta" is easily the most addictive ass-shaker on the moombahton compilation released by Diplo's Mad Decent label, so it's no wonder South Rakkas Crew has been racking up accolades from all over the world.

    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.'"
