Kode 9 and Spaceape 

Wednesday, Jul 8 2009

Dubstep would've become just another loping beats-and-bass category if not for U.K. DJ and producer Steve Goodman. As head of the vaunted Hyperdub label, he released two atmospheric albums by Burial that transformed the genre into a frenetic street soundtrack. Under the moniker Kode9 for the 2006 album Memories of the Future, he backed the Caribbean-accented existentialist spoken word of the Spaceape with powerfully minimalist beat tracks. Though Goodman frequently visits our dubstep mecca, this will be the S.F. debut of the 'Ape, so get ready for a truly rhythm-driven recital from these dancefloor outliers.

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.'"
