Local record label Bersa Discos offers flights to Latin America for the price of a 7-inch. The cumbia friendly outpost has a new, limited edition tune from a Spanish-speaking discovery up for sale: "Hay Guey" by Tzochitl Soundsystem vs. Toy Selectah. The latter is a Mexico-based producer and remixer who digs international blends, building his beats on a cross-section of Columbian and Caribbean sytles that he dubs "Sonidero Nacional." This particular number would fit well on the Bersa's electro-cumbia club night, Tormenta Tropical, with boomin' bass, chopped up chants, and eclectic percussion samples skittering across the surface.

  • 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.'"
