If there's a local sound system more representative of the "Outernational" sound than Surya Dub, we've yet to hear it. We all knew that sub-bass's depth-delving frequencies could move your rump in interesting ways, but before Surya got surly and stepped up to the plate with their mix of ragga, bhangra, dubstep, electro-hop, and D'n'B, who knew that low-end madness could become the aural equivalent of Esperanto, linking global cultures and uniting people under a steady, thumping groove?

Surya Dub's second anniversary happens from about 10 p.m. until 3 a.m. Saturday at Club Six, and as usual, it's sure to put a hum in your dinger. The downstairs "Sub-Hz Den" features guests 2562 (from the Netherlands!) and the Gaslight Killer (from L.A.!), along with SD residents Maneesh the Twister, Kid Kameleon, MC Daddy Frank, and the Contact VJs; upstairs, "Inna Yard," you'll find guests Lud Dub along with residents Jimmy Love and DJ Amar playing nonstop bhangra, electric vardos, and cosmic vibes. Tix are $15 at the door, but if you click here, you can score presales for just $10.

  • 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.'"
