Track of the Day: Ring Trick

Posted By on Thu, Oct 22, 2009 at 12:04 PM

San Francisco's Ring Trick is a very goal-oriented artist. For one month the electronic producer/musician plans on uploading one new demo a day to his blog. "The only rule," he writes, "is that it has to be recorded and produced in the span of 24 hours."

Scroll down the page and you can hear a batch of dreamy, soundtracky tunes influenced by the great minimalist, ambient composers and heavy shoegazer idols. With every new song,  Ring Track also posts a video for the artist who has particularly inspired him that day (Stars of the Lid, Broken Social Scene, Aphex Twin, Flaming Lips).

Our pick of the batch so far: "Puddle Jumping," which builds and breaks like little meteor showers of distorted guitar and synth melodies.

  • 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.'"
