DJ Cam 

Revisited By

French hip hop producer Laurent "DJ Cam" Daumail hasn't issued a proper full-length album since his excellent 2003 excursion into future soul, Soulshine. He has tried to satisfy fans with an odds-and-sods compilation (Liquid Hip-Hop), a mix CD (My Playlist), and now a compilation of other artists remixing his tracks. With contributions from Thievery Corporation, DJ Premier, DJ Vadim, and many others, Revisited By should be a stellar release. Instead, the 13 remixes on it vary in quality, and range from Kenny Dope's bass-rattling take on "Success" to Bob Sinclar's flailing reinterpretation of "Espionage." Attica Blues' "Success" mix adds silky vocals from singer Roba El-Essawy; it's a thoughtful reworking of the original. Revisited By is a curious but unessential release, and DJs and hip hop fans unacquainted with DJ Cam should either pick up Soulshine or wait for his next opus.

  • 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.'"
