Fedde Le Grand 

Wednesday, Dec 9 2009

Though Dutch-born, Fedde Le Grand made his name with "Put Your Hands Up for Detroit," a 2006 funky electrohouse anthem. Admittedly, anyone who knows electronic music knows that track isn't even remotely related to Detroit's techno heritage, save for some juddering bleeps perhaps. Instead, it's a peak-hour banger fit for rocking superclubs in London or Ibiza. Building on that — and Le Grand is all about buildups — he plays big-room dirty house, mixing vocal Europop and filter workouts with massive bass drops and riff-heavy stretches to bring on the rush.

  • 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.'"
