With last year’s Shuffle Culture, Questlove attempted to re-create and rethink the experience of scrolling through an iPod live onstage at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. This year, in a program titled Electronium in honor of Raymond Scott’s late-’60s desk-sized synthesizer, the acclaimed drummer, producer, bandleader, shoe designer, and memoirist returns to explore—and once again shuffle through—a half-century of electronic music. Expect to see the likes of indie r&b dude How to Dress Well, beatboxing champ Rahzel, and experimental MPC fiend Jeremy Ellis interpreting the work of artists from Robert Moog to George Clinton in a show that won’t be matched until Questlove returns for 2014.
