Urulu: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Oct 24 2012

Screaming divas, ethereal pads, and the smooth rush of TR-909 hi-hats — '90s nostalgia is back full-bore, and with it an entirely new wave of retro-futuristic house music. At the forefront is Los Angeles-based DJ/producer Taylor Freels, aka Urulu. A fresh face on the scene, he specializes in an unabashedly nostalgic sound that creatively appropriates aspects of East Coast luminaries like Masters at Work and Kerri Chandler, while staying true to the computer-driven aesthetic of the present. What hasn't changed is the music's sense of intense euphoria, something that can be heard in recent single "1991," as well as in his DJ sets. Catch him as he plays this Friday for Lights Down Low's Halloween Bash.

  • 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.'"
