Drop the Lime: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 1 2012

As head of the Trouble and Bass label, Luca "Drop the Lime" Venezia makes punch-drunk, fidgety tracks with the stuttering swing of rockabilly and the wonky, hard-hitting low end of grimy club music. Based out of Brooklyn, Venezia draws from the historical gamut of bowel-churning, hip-swiveling frequencies rather than any one particular influence. His tracks fuse Miami bass, Baltimore club, Detroit ghettotech and South London dubstep with dancehall, U.K. garage, 4x4 house, breakbeat hardcore, and old-fashioned rhythm and blues. The result is a bruising raid of serpentine bass topped with live vocals.

  • 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.'"
