Born in San Francisco, Tamara Palmer dreams melodies, breathes beats and responds to bass. She plays the clarinet and the turntables, but not at the same time—though perhaps she should. A former editor at URB during its formative years, Palmer is also the author of Country Fried Soul: Adventures in Dirty South Hip-Hop, the first book on the market to celebrate Southern rap music. Despite this wonderfully digital age, she is a DJ still stubbornly clinging to vinyl. And while she enjoys taking prom-like pictures with rappers, she despises the burgeoning trend of adult prom-themed parties.

This is a link to a DJ mix she has on Odeo. Fireal.

  • 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.'"
