Mr. Scruff, J-Boogie, DJ Platurn, Motion Potion, DJ Dials 

When: Sat., Aug. 16, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $20
Mr. Scruff is one of a handful of DJs and musicians who, in the early 1990s, developed a uniquely British take on hip-hop. Scruff, alongside compatriots Coldcut, Nightmares on Wax, and others, took the breakbeats of then-current U.K. jungle, slowed them down to American hip-hop tempos, and threw in a bevy of funk, jazz, ambient, acid house, and psychedelic rock influences. Besides his productions, Scruff is known for his everything-but-the-kitchen-sink DJ sets — expect to hear Ninja Tune classics alongside funk, soul, rap, drum 'n' bass, house, and beyond. If you need a break, a stacked lineup of locals (J-Boogie, Motion Potion, Platurn, and DJ Dials) will be holding it down in the Loft.

  • 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.'"
