Marcel Vogel: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 19 2012

A label like Lumberjacks in Hell seems designed to conjure false associations. Though its name might bring to mind a bunch of bearded metal wizards, in reality this is an obscure disco label that specializes in a raw style of reediting pioneered by house music godfather Ron Hardy. At the helm is Dutchman Marcel Vogel, a dedicated DJ and producer who's extended a transatlantic hand to those artists in Chicago still keeping this art form alive. Pressing up tracks by underground favorites like Jamie 3:26, Rahaan, and Boogie Nite (whose Chaka Khan- and Mickey Mouse-themed "Earth 2 Mickey" has been blowing our minds lately), Vogel has a unique taste that also informs his old-school-indebted DJ sets. Catch his San Francisco debut this weekend.

  • 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.'"
