Hey there hipsters! Checking for the latest and greatest in local hippity-hop? You up on 40 Love, son? This multiculti SF-based unit, consisting of emcees G-Off and Haze, producer/emcee Mikos, and producer/DJ the Whooligan have just released their latest album, Bangarang (OmHipHop).

It's a solid entry in the boom bap/true school mold, which nonetheless has some "knocks" and "blaps" on it as well. We're particularly feeling the vaguely Easternish melodies of "Heads Up"--featuring The Jacka--as well as Haze's femme fatale flows and soulful singing (reminiscent, perhaps, of Digable Planets' Ladybug Mecca).

Tonight, you can catch 40Love live at the Haight's premier hip-hop spot, Milk , plus DJ sets by The Whooligan and Sake One. If you're on a budget, admission is $5 before 11 p.m.

  • 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.'"
