Troker @ Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 

Wednesday, Jun 29 2016

Originally formed in Guadalajara in 2004, Troker brings together bass, piano, drums, sax, trumpet, and a DJ to create a unique act that's part jazz, part electronic. The sextet has played prestigious festivals like Glastonbury Festival, SXSW, and Edinburgh International, bringing its sound to over 15 different countries along the way. Vinyl-heavy DJ scratch solos switch off between traditional-leaning horn sections, bridging the jazz club and DJ worlds together to create a sound that's a far cry from your parents' Blue Note records. Traditionalists be damned, Troker's genre blending approach brings a modern sensibility, fire, and ferocity to the scene.

  • 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.'"
