Signal to Noise: Five Deep Cuts Selected by Marcellus Pittman

Posted By on Wed, May 16, 2012 at 8:32 AM


Following closely on the heels of our recent edition with Soul Clap, this week's Signal to Noise takes cues from yet another special guest. Marcellus Pittman is a house DJ and producer from Detroit who is known for his deep crates (the man's a vinyl enthusiast) and raw-edged productions. Pittman was in town last Friday, and, if rumors are to be believed, he killed it at As You Like It's party at BeatBox. We caught up with the Detroiter earlier this week and asked him to select a few of his favorite tunes. Read on, give these a spin, and be sure to check him out the next time he's in San Francisco (or, if you don't feel like waiting, listen to this podcast he just dropped for AYLI).

"The Circle Stops Somewhere," by A Sagittariun

Couldn't resist the name Sagittarian because I'm one. Solid stuff!!

"Export (Charles Webster Remix)," by Peret Mako

Mike Serafini from Gramaphone Records hipped me to this one. Thanks my guy.

"Testimony," by Wolfgang Maus

In the words of Rick Wilhite... Real Rite fool!!!!!

"Halu," by The Cool Notes

This reminds me of one of the greatest jazz station the D ever had, WJZZ.

"Stuck," by Peven Everett

No need for an explanation on why this tune is fresh to def.

  • 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.'"
