Lazer Sword, the DJ/producer duo that was once based in our fine city, is now an East and West Coast outfit split between San Francisco and New York. The group's two members, Lando Kal and Low Limit , take things to the international level with the release of a split EP on Glasgow's Numbers label. Released yesterday, The Golden Handshake EP contains six tracks (three from each member), and runs the gamut of glitched-out, electronic hip-hop and crunchy dance beats that Lazer Sword is known to drop on the masses.

A quick trip to the Lazer Sword Myspace page reveals two songs from the brand new EP. Lando Kal's "Fuzzy Ankles" is a slow-moving banger full of spacey elements and wonky bass melodies that sounds inspired by Mr. Oizo. "Trapperkeeper," by Low Limit, has a filthier swagger to it. LL's bouncing hip-hop beat carries chopped-and-screwed vocal samples, wobbling basslines, and, like his partner in crime's single, all sorts of weird noises.

For those of you who are SXSW-bound, The Golden Handshake EP is out just in time for Lazer Sword's DJ set tomorrow night at Iron Gate in Austin, TX.

  • 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.'"
