  • Ocote Soul Sounds

It's hard to keep up with all the various offshoots of the Daptone/Antibalas Brooklyn funk nexus, we know--from El Michels Affair to Bronx River Parkway to the Budos Band to Ocote Soul Sounds (who have a new record dropping soon called Coconut Rock on Thievery Corporation's ESL label). What's a groove-lovin' hipster to do? Well, how about take the needle off the vinyl record, put down the mojito, and head over to Mojito May 16, when Ocote Soul Sounds (featuring Antibalas founder and TV on the Radio collaborator Martin Perna) play a rare live set of psychedelic neuva cancion music, along with Senor Oz and Pleasuremaker. If you miss that gig, you've got one more chance to redeem your coolness points, by checking out Ocote the following evening, May 17, at Berkeley's La Pena.

  • 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.'"
