clipping. makes party music for the club you wish you hadn’t gone to, the car you don’t remember getting in, and the streets you don’t feel safe on.
clipping. are phantom broadcasts bleeding into Power 106 as you drive out of range.
Are twenty different rappers looking into one broken mirror, talking to themselves all at once. Are classic west coast rap music out of the tradition where sounding different wasn’t cause for fear.
clipping. | Killer
Formed in 2009, initially as a remix project, clipping. acquired a vocalist in 2011 and began pursuing music-making at the intersection of gangster rap, music concrete and harsh noise.
With tracks crafted by experienced minimalist noise artist William Hutson and film soundtrack composer Jonathan Snipes, they are not only capturing this level of threat and agitation, but also the cinematic barrenness of sprawling cement, fields of litter, and endless trees with every branch chopped off and painted black.
clipping. | Loud
Front man Daveed Diggs is not just quick with his words, but incredibly precise. He brings out the rhythm of the seemingly rhythmless. He punctuates melodies made out of negative space. Yes, they know about noise. But this is hip hop.
This event is highly recommended by Digital in Berlin! We are giving away 2 x 2 tickets. Just send a mail to email@example.com with “clipping.” as the subject.
