Irrevocably Overdriven Break Freakout Megamix

Wednesday, May 25 2005
According to the Entschuldigen Web site, one-man band Hrvatski's new release is a "40-minute 39-second 2-color audio compact disc with black trigger activated disc release mechanism. Each copy [comes] with 1/20 varieties of hand-cut metallic ink cardstock insert [and] laminated 2-color metallic ink sticker." Ha! Give me a fucking break with this prepackaged-art-gallery-artifact routine. Quality packaging is cool and all, but this reads like a preconceived eBay item description. Now, there is nothing more obnoxious, in my humble opinion, than a musician promoting his very own releases like they are ultra-rare and collectible Beanie Babies. (BTW -- Entschuldigen is Hrvatski's label!) Then again, Hrvatski seems like a rather clever dude, and this could be his way of commenting on what it is that's causing me to pull the hair from my head. But, releasing a 41-minute mix of old, worn-out, hyperbreakbeat, glitch-riddled, x-treme techno-whatever in 2004 is not the way to go about it. This music is so, so very late-'90s. File it next to those megastale Kid606 discs everybody dug for, like, a week.

  • 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.'"
