After a three-month hiatus, avant-bass promoters Surya Dub return for a one-off event featuring DJ and producer Mala of the vaunted South London dubstep crew Digital Mystikz. With opaque tracks like "Bury the Bwoy" and "Miracles," Mala has maintained dubstep's brooding dub side, injecting the songs' atmospheres with evocative ragga vocal samples and adventurous rhythms. As usual, the Surya Dub crew plays it smart, matching Mala with two gifted local DJs: beat mutator Eprom, who terms his extreme-bass funk "psyphy" (psychedelic hyphy; clever, eh?) and veteran reggae don Ross Hogg, who weaves his own tough hip-hop reggae remixes into his always-thumping sets.

  • 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.'"
