Drop the Lime
Releasing the gamut of breakbeat clatter and electro jabber on the Trouble & Bass imprint he co-founded, Drop the Lime (real name Luca Venezia) champions sounds akin to a game of percussive freeze tag, and he'll showcase this rousing mayhem on Wednesday, Feb. 11. 9 p.m., free; call 433-8585 or visit www.vesselsf.com.
Like tequila shots (a love of which inspired his name), New York DJ and producer Drop the Lime's music combines a sense of woozy euphoria with moments of maniacal intensity. On his 2008 EP, Hear Me, unrepentant maws of bass threaten to swallow the listener's senses as dubstep's distending synths hunch with house music's sexualized soul.
