Rupture and more this weekend!

Unfortunately, I will be at a wedding this weekend, so I won't make what is likely to be one of my favorite shows this year.

DJ /rupture is not only one of the smartest and most provocative bloggers around, but also one of the smartest and most provocative DJs around. Neither of those things preclude the dancfloors under his influence from being absolutely slammin with block-rocking beats.

This cat has put immense energy, intensity and focus into bringing together musics from all over the world and cutting them together on the dancefloor in a way that truly ruptures mental (and political) maps, bleeding borders and languages together and underlining it all with earth-fed bass force.

Add to that dubstep juggernaut Dave Q of NY's mighty Dub War, plus local drumnbass/dubstep fave Miss Haze, and the reggae and hip-hop-soul-funk forces of Dj I-Vier and Coop'D'Ville.. well.. it's beyond masalacized this time. Whatever your favorite dish of a million spices is, this is it in musical form. I'm thinking the Vegetarian combo platter plus tuna special at Finfine ethiopian restaurant, but that's just me...

Tomorrow in Chinatown

Courtesy of the Staypuft DJ, I have been invited to play at his new event The Night Kitchen, alongside Los Angeles' Ricky Def, and Kid Kameleon. The location: the Li Po Lounge, a raw little basement underneath a dive bar in Chinatown. Its a great spot, I've played there before, but you gotta watch your head and your feet, nothing is quite level.

Nastysonix presents: THE NIGHT KITCHEN
Thu 8/14 (10PM) @ Li Po Lounge Cost: $5
916 Grant st. San Francisco, CA 94108 Map

Come out for some musical treats!

out of the mouths of robots

A google search for my dj name brought up a broken link & thumbnail to some kind of spam blog that has mangled something to do with one of my old gigs... i think.. but it also could be my new bio:
