New Year's for the ADD-stricken: dub, soul, booty bass, and ... Billy Squier?

Wednesday, Dec 31 2003
Looks like some of you have realized only just now that you need to dip yourself in debauchery to properly send these past 12 months to history's ash heap. But fear not: For those procrastinators out there who appreciate true, almost incongruent musical variety, there's "Flavor Group and Compression's New Year's Eve Celebration," where your Dionysian destiny will be in the capable hands of a dubmeister, a soul man, a booty maniac, and an up-and-coming rock star.

The dubmeister is local golden boy DJ J. Boogie, whose seven-piece J. Boogie's Dubtronic Science band will flesh out his diverse, bouncing, urban take on traditional reggae dub. The soul man is smooth Philly singer/producer/DJ Vikter Duplaix, who is primed to melt the ladies' hearts with a deep house set accompanied by his own seductive and irresistibly vulnerable vocals. Shoring up those melted hearts will be the booty maniac, Detroit's Disco D, whose outrageous high-speed blend of ass-centered electro and strip-club house has made him a legend in the underground. Few can top off a night of dub, romance, and sex like tomorrow's rock star, the megatalented scratch DJ Z-Trip, who peppers his highly funky three-hour hip hop sets with grooves from unlikely sources such as Rush, Billy Squier, and the Who. Add the other amenities offered up -- including an open bar, tasty Indian appetizers, and a gang of supporting DJs -- and your last-minute NYE option could prove your best-case scenario. Good luck, you animals.

  • 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.'"
