Dead Seal 

Wednesday, Sep 23 2009

San Francisco's Dead Seal (Derrick Boyd) is a techno producer and a multi-instrumentalist. He plays bass for electro group Landshark, and has been known to rock the guitar and clarinet. His minor-key–looped "Sparks" and "The Breeze," the latter with its deep thump and wolf howls, are visceral and haunting, underpinned by metronomic beats. A number of Dead Seal's labelmates from S.F.'s Auralism Records will join in celebrating the release of his debut full-length, Corpus Animus; admission includes a copy of the CD.

  • 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.'"
