The tongue-in-cheek funksters Chromeo recently released Fancy Footwork: Deluxe Edition, a repackaged and remixed version of last summer's much-buzzed album from the Montreal-based duo. The group sometimes apes the synth-driven R&B sound of the '80s too much, but the catchiness of its melodies on tracks like "You're So Gangsta" or "100%" safeguards against novelty act status. Chromeo's songs still sound fresh a year later on Deluxe Edition, buoyed by new remixes from hot artists like DFA and Playgroup.

  • 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.'"
