Choose from James Murphy’s of LCD Soundsystem electro DJ set to nu disco delights with this week’s best parties in San Francisco.
Thursday, Oct 16th: James Murphy DJ set at Public Works
James Murphy remains busy in the wake of LCD Soundsystem with regular DJ gigs and remixes of acts like DFA, Colette, and YSL and film soundtrack work. He’s back at Public works to start the weekend early with Conor (No Way Back), Bells & Whistles (AYLI / Four Sweaters), Tyrel Williams (Secret Studio / Housepitality) and Mike Bee (Vinyl Dreams).
Friday, Oct 17th: Curses at Audio Discotech
An alumnus of Parisian label Instibubes, Curses was mostly off the radar for dance music fans from 2008 until re-emerging in spring 2013 with a series of Brooklyn after-hours parties that inspired him to return to the studio. The result, his first single in years “So Good,” a return to the stage at Miami Winter Conference and a tour supporting Tensnake. Expect a deep and heavy house set for this intimate party.
Friday, Oct 17th: Snakehips + STWO at 1015
The UK’s Snakehips have generated a buzz with remixes of popular songs like The Weeknd’s “Wanderlust” and Banks’ “Warm Water” accompanied by their own tracks, such as “On and On” and “Days With You.” Their chillwave sound with generous servings of R&B flavor will be supported by the Wormhole Crew, Teeko live, DJ Dials and DJ Bluz.
Saturday, Oct 18th: Perception at Supperclub SF
Perception brings nu disco and deep house to Supperclub with the heady goal of achieving “altered states of consciousness through music in order to encounter and interact with the spirit world and channel transcendental energies into this world.” It’s almost Halloween, so why not? Headliner Deep Jesus will lead the journey with bass heavy deep house beats accompanied by Jimmy Bell, Alastair and Miguel Alvarado.
Saturday, Oct 18th: Goldfish at Mezzanine
Goldfish offers a genre-bending sound from Cape Town, South Africa, that mixes live instrumentation with programed beats and samples. Armed with a double bass, a saxophone, synths and a sunny beach vibe the duo’s 2006 debut Caught In The Loop helped launch them onto the international stage.
