  • S.F.'s Ghosts on Tape makes's Top 100 of 2009 list
If there's one thing the music world loves to do, it's make lists. Best ofs, worst ofs, personal faves, and what-have-you rundowns catch the public eye and add a little personality to whichever publication puts them together. One such list was curated by online electronic music retailer, which made its tastemaking Top 100 Tracks of 2009 available as a huge download for a very limited time--basically through the end of the day.

Bleep's critical track list isn't just a mecca for club DJs and electronic music nerds. The UK-based thinktank peppered its year-end roundup with loads of music for at-home and earphone listening. Among the choice titles for adventurous audio aficionados are Dam-Funk, Flying Lotus, Animal Collective, DOOM, San Francisco-based Ghosts on Tape, Mum, Nosaj Thing, Dirty Projectors, Untold, Glass Candy, and Hudson Mohawke.

Bleep's Top 100 takes last year's greatest songs and turns them into a potential gateway for listeners to discover artists that could otherwise fall under the radar. And at 30 pounds--or about $48--that's not a bad price to pay to stay on top of breaking electronic acts.

  • 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.'"
