If you dig the new millennium disco fogging up windows in clubs across the country, you'll feel love for the Juan MacLean track "The Simple Life." The song luckily has nothing to do with Paris and her former BFF Nicole. Rather, it's a bit of Star Wars meets Donna Summer, a gorgeous track that beams subtle sonic lasers into your earholes to make sure you're paying attention. The single warms up the dancefloor with a purely (electronic) instrumental sound before getting all Human League with a female/male point/counterpoint on love disappearing into the stars. Check out the original song at Just Press Play or the M Worgull remix here.

  • 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.'"
