Maayan Nidam: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 4 2012

Originally from Tel Aviv and now based in Berlin, Maayan Nidam established a reputation in the last decade for producing and DJing muggy, dub-haunted minimal house under the name Miss Fitz. In the last few years, however, she has focused her style, and she now lays down more lush, melodic, and groove-oriented deep tech-house. Swede Axel Boman co-headlines Nidam's S.F. show with a similarly anodyne style: He assembles tracks out of murmuring bass, parched percussion and muffled samples that eventually thicken into more beat-forward soundscapes. Both are masters of the slow build, and don't rely on cheap crescendos to please.

  • 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.'"
