Local hip-hop producer Unagi is one slippery fella. His warm California beats and cool jazz grooves are smoother than cocoa butter left in the sunshine. He's been not so quietly releasing albums that play on his eely moniker for a while now, and as he preps for the latest batch of up-beats and velvety rhymes, Reinventing the Eel, you can sample a couple tight tracks from his Web site. "Grown Man Flowin" featuring Motion Man, is a particularly great track-- it's pure summer anthem material, mixing golden funk with permission to party.

  • 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.'"
