Hey there, bassheads! Current TV has a pretty cool mini-documentary on dubstep in the Bay Area Local DJs tell the story: Mike Bee offers up a lil' history lesson, defining the subgenre as "a very refined evolution" of dancehall reggae, hip-hop, and house music; Sam Supa then discusses how two-step was adopted by SF DJs, who also imported grime from the UK and founded Grime City, the first monthly dubstep party (which has been going for three years now); and Child waxes poetic reminiscing on warehouse parties with "bass so loud, it was messing with your diaphragm." If you need a Hump Day pick-me-up as the morning caffeine starts to subside, look no further.

  • 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.'"
