Track of the Day: Fresh Espresso

Posted By on Tue, Oct 20, 2009 at 12:52 PM

Nothing like a little Fresh Espresso to wake your ass up--and then keep you in a dreamstate. The Seattle duo's synth- and string-driven hip-hop floats on pastel sci-fi melodies, choruses where robots harmonize with breathy background vocals, and clean beats that are airy and uplifting.

The group comprises producer/composer/rapper P Smoov and emcee Rik Rude, who offer dreamy narratives of semi-reality and drifting away on "Bedroom."

  • 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.'"
