Tall Paul delivers towering dance floor jams 

Wednesday, Apr 18 2007
At 6 feet 6 inches, Tall Paul is statuesque, but his talent as a DJ (who has performed for more than 20 years) soars above the gimmick of his name. He first developed a following — and continues to hone his skills — at Turnmills, the 1,000-capacity London nightclub owned by his family, where he produces the sort of chugging progressive house that he spins by other artists. He's remixed big names like Duran Duran, New Order, and the Killers, and likely has a few surprises in his duffel bag when he DJs on Friday, April 20, at Ruby Skye at 9 p.m. Admission is $15; call 693-0777 or visit for more info. — Tamara Palmer

Signed to breakbeat label Finger Lickin' Records, England's Nick Slater and Kevin Lancaster are the DrumAttic Twins , producers of bass- and funk-heavy dance tracks. Their logo is a cartoon caricature of the pair sporting octopus tentacles and juggle turntables. Watch the duo as they attempt this feat in person; they'll perform a "dex 'n fx" DJ set, mixing songs and altering them on the fly with sound effects, on Friday, April 20, at Mighty at 10 p.m. Admission is $15; call 626-7001 or visit for more info. — T.P.

  • 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.'"
