In what's turning out to be a great week for Yay Area rap, we'd also be remiss not to congratulate The Jacka for winning at the Ozone Awards in Houston on Monday night. The Pittsburg-based rapper took home the prize in the "Patiently Waiting: California" category, which means the man is a talent that's been waiting a heck of a long time for people to recognize it. Host Ozone Magazine devotes a portion of its pages each issue to the mini-mag Ozone West, and has quickly established itself as a leader in covering our locals, so we'll try not to be upset that all the other pertinent categories were won by dudes from Southern California. -- Tamara Palmer

  • 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.'"
