Music

If Destroy Rock & Roll, Mylo's unexpectedly pretty, poppy dance record, kills rock 'n' roll, it kills it softly. His DJ sets, however, damage the dancefloors with a rarely seen thing in DJ'ing these days: skill. His sets, filled with crunchy, electrofied breaks that recall Daft Punk without the kitsch, are filled with perfectly timed drops and crescendos, moving the music and crowd with the aplomb of a master manipulator. He's playing the second Recall Lab with Recall artist Jehro, who makes mild, pleasant, vaguely reggae-ish island music, and APT's DJ Angola, with G.O.V. lending support. Thu @ 9, Maritime Hotel, Hiro Ballroom, 371 W 17th, 212-727-0212


Another turntable technician, Erol Alkan, does what all the iPod DJs and celebrity DJs think they're doing—combining links between rock, pop, and techno. He's got the dexterity to make combinations that seem ridiculous or redundant work (yes, he even dares to pair something so overt as Interpol with Joy Division, and somehow escapes the wrath of Carlos D.). He's playing twice—first at a party co-hosted by Nighttime's Justine D. and Dave P. and Fixed's JDH (all of whom are spinning), Wed @ 10, Don Hill's, 511 Greenwich St, 212-334-1390.The next night he performs with a surprise special guest. Thu @ 10, Tribeca Grand, 2 Sixth Ave, 212-519-6600

    Those fine techno pushers Robots have a May mini–music series. For the second week, they've imported electro-techno artists from the Dutch label Clone: Serge, Alden Tyrell, and Dexter. The label has put out releases from Adult, I-F, and Legowelt—leaning toward the off-kilter and rough-hewn side of the electro revival. Thu @ 10, Love, 40 W 8th, 212-477-5683, musicislove.net
