Pole and Kode 9 Invade San Francisco
Stefan Betke (a.k.a. Pole) is one of the most respected producers in the history of dub-tech, responsible for not only mastering with the Basic Channel/Rhythm & Sound camp, but also for founding the ~scape imprint (Jan Jelinek, Deadbeat).
San Francisco sound-nerds and old techno heads will be thrilled that a yet-to-be announced location is hosting one of the most anticipated electronic events (at least to us) of 2007–Pole’s live invasion of the city.
In addition to Pole’s live bombast South London-based dubstep icon Kode 9 (founder of the Hyperdub label) will be at the DJ decks with his infamously massive bass power. Also set to perform is XLR8R columnist/raga-breakcore-dancehall masher Kid Kameleon. Organs are bound to rupture.
In the great rave tradition, full details will be announced on the day of the show. Check back with XLR8R’s Top Stories for more info.
