Squarepusher: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Aug 1 2012

Ufabulum, released in May, is Squarepusher's 15th album in about as many years. Apart from succumbing to the high-concept headwear en vogue among the luminaries of electronic dance music (all of whom owe him a debt of one kind or another), British maxi-instrumentalist and unassuming visionary Tom Jenkinson doesn't appear to have noticed time passing. Ufabulum is one of his best offerings yet, sharp and tuneful and just warm enough that you might not realize there's not a single organic sound on it. To take it on tour, he also created a video synthesizer and LED lightshow — not to be missed, especially if you've always wanted to drop acid at a 4 p.m. screening of Tron.

  • 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.'"
