Derrick Carter: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 29 2011

Chicago DJ and producer Derrick Carter has long been one of America's national house music treasures, a man with a firm grasp on how to create (and mix) tunes that stand in stark opposition to genre clichés, with thoughtful instrumentation, propulsive basslines, and sometimes even his own sensual vocals. Among his latest releases is a mix collection for the legendary London nightclub Fabric, which features a number of his dubs and remixes for other artists. As his overseas profile continues to be in demand, he doesn't get a chance to play in San Francisco quite as much as he used to, but he'll make a rare appearance to headline at "JackHammer Disco."

  • 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.'"
