Dancefloor Carnage from Italy 

Wednesday, Jul 16 2008

From ricotta and Sangiovese to impossibly buttery leather, there are certain arenas where the Italians reign supreme. Add to that list disco-filtered house music and oversexed electro. Bringing sawtooth synths and happy house at a kitten-heels-friendly pace, Italy's the Bloody Beetroots and Congorock load a clip for the ultrahip, assuring their tracks slots beside J.U.S.T.I.C.E., Digitalism, MSTRKRFT, Boys Noize, et al. The dancefloor becomes a crime scene, home to squelchy castoff caused by the concussive force of clenched tones and divebombing bass.

  • 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.'"
