Starkey+Chrissy Murderbot


Tonight’s headliners share a love for electronica’s most obstreperous subtypes, and seminal-IDM-label turned juke-curators Planet Mu have rewarded them for it. Philadelphia laptop battler Starkey calls his mélange of grim, dubstep, breakcore, and hip-hop “street bass.” Chicago’s Chrissy Murderbot spent a year establishing himself as a true scholar of dance music by releasing a mixtape a day, each in a different subgenre, from freestyle to bashment to ghetto house; last year’s footwork-inspired Women’s Studies proved he can put that knowledge into practice. With RAJA (aka Chester Anand, aka InfinitiRock).
