TNGHT: Show Preview

With the launch of TNGHT, young beatsmiths Hudson Mohawke and Lunice forged the Glasgow-Montreal connection you've always longed for. The rising electronic musicians first became acquainted through MySpace circa 2008, but it wasn't until around 2012 that they began teaming up. After Lunice (a Canadian) caught a remix of Gucci Mane's "Party Animals" from Mohawke (a Scot), he became interested in collaborating with Mohakwe on a project driven by big-budget, Maybach Music Group-style theatrics. The resulting TNGHT, the duo's 2012 debut EP, delivers on the promise of spectacle. TNGHT's 16 minutes contain shattering glass, faded 8-bit melodies, huge and hypnotizing drums, too many heavily altered vocal samples to corral, and heaps of other nutty touches. These are bangers better fit for carnivals than clubs.

  • 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.'"
