Hear It in SF First: Mapei

Posted By on Tue, Dec 9, 2008 at 12:57 PM

While I was busy judging the Live 105 battle of the bands last night, music director Aaron Axelsen put a bug in my hear about a new favorite act of his, Mapei. She's a rapper from Stockholm of all places, and her grimy beats and tough chick delivery make the tracks on her MySpace page instantly sticky. Mapei's signed to Downtown records (home to Santogold, Art Brut, Gnarls Barkley, and sonic peers Spank Rock) and she makes an initial swing through San Francisco on Thursday -- where she hits Axelsen's club Popscene for a performance. Check out Mapei's shout outs to Miami Vice and her treatise on "Daterape" at her MySpace page here. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
