GRANITE kickstarts your new year with harder and darker flavors of electronic music.
Front room techno:
Dima [TeknoKitchen], Justin Peoples [who returns to the Bay to finally play some techno], boomBot [Voice of the Machine / Motor City Resurgence], Southpole [restless complainer that Berghain is not in SF, first and probably last chance to catch him in a venue this size] and last but not least j-moody [S/H/A/P/E/S].
Back room power ambient:
If you need a reset from the pummeling the back room will showcase Power Ambient, according to FACT magazine THE sound of 2014 (if you were closely listening): transmissions from a dystopian future that is already there, just not very evenly distributed (but for sure in San Francisco). We have Odi Me [Jacktone] who has mesmerized audiences with his relentless slaughter of vegetables to dark ambient sounds at experimental shows all over SF last year; Jason Polastri and Chris Zaldua of probably the most important new techno crew of the past year, Surface Tension.
