Joe Nice: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 26 2011

Last year, Britney Spears collaborated with U.K. dubstep producer Rusko, leading many in the music press to wonder whether his bass-saturated dancefloor genre was officially dead. For promoter Sam Supa, however, that just meant it was time to take things farther down the rabbit hole. Instead of giving up, the Grime City veteran launched a new club series at Underground SF to highlight the music's innovators. Baltimore's Joe Nice fits this bill as an energetic US dubstep ambassador and purist who plays his hefty exclusive tracks off vinyl acetate dubplates. Also featured are Wheel and Deal Recordings' Dean J. "DJG" Grenier playing his own dubby uptempo material, along with Ed "UFO!" Garro, whose new single drops soon on Supa's Brap Dem label. Supa himself, under the moniker Prince Zammy, rounds out a bill that promises more than just dubstep.

    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.'"
