Patrice Scott: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 7 2011

With a discography that only dates to 2006, Patrice Scott is one of Detroit's unsung heroes. As a DJ who traces his lineage to such luminaries as Ken Collier, The Electrifying Mojo, and Ron Hardy, the Motor City native has been slinging records in his hometown since the early '80s. Despite this long relationship with Detroit techno, Scott remained relatively obscure until he founded Sistrum Recordings and began producing tracks. Those releases, which include such contemporary classics as "Atmospheric Emotions," "Beyond Deep," and last year's "Analog Dreams," all show off Scott's unique ability to create layered sonic structures that skirt the line between house and techno in a way that's unique to Detroit.

    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.'"
