2. As You Like It presents Ben UFO @ Beatbox

Friday, Dec. 14, 10 p.m. - 4 a.m.

There aren't too many internationally touring DJs out there that solely focus on the craft. Ben UFO is one of those rare players who's only in it for DJing -- quite simply, he doesn't have any original productions under his belt whatsoever. Instead, his reputation is entirely built off the strength of his wildly imaginative sets. Coming from the UK bass/post-dubstep world, he explores a line that stretches from the deep past into the far-flung future. He developed this aesthetic while working as a prolific A&R man for the respected Hessle Audio imprint, a label he co-founded with fellow UK bass music traveller Ramadanman. Listen to his recent mix for Boiler Room and get ready for another quality evening when he headlines As You Like It this Friday.

1. Honey Soundsystem presents Prosumer @ Holy Cow

Sunday, Dec. 16, 9 p.m. - 2 a.m.

Best party in the city? It might be too early to call, but Honey Soundsystem sure makes a good argument for this title. The long-running Sunday-night affair plays host to some of the biggest DJs in the world in an environment that is simply unmatched anywhere else in the city. This Sunday sees Panorama Bar resident DJ Prosumer taking a turn behind the decks -- his first time back since his set there last year with original Ostgut/Panorama Bar resident Boris. As you might imagine, this is shaping up to be a very special evening. Prepare yourself with listen to Prosumer's live mix from Honey Soundsystem last year, and read this recent review of the party's ode to Patrick Cowley.

  • 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.'"
