With a motto like "Pop is our tradition," it's no wonder the J-POP SUMMIT is a celebration of Japanese movies, music, and pop culture. One of this year's musical acts is the electronic dance group World Order, which — fun fact — made an appearance on The Amazing Race in 2015. Created by former mixed martial arts champion Genki Sudo, the six-man act performs tightly choreographed robotic dance routines to its own music, while dressed in natty business suits that, Sudo says, are intended to "mock the stereotype of Japanese salarymen who work like robots every day."

  • 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.'"
