That smooth, sensual, cosmic synthfunk vibe oozes from this local producer-skater's new five-song EP on the Voltaire label. "The instruments used span three decades: from the '80s the Oberheim DX, Akai Ax60, Yamaha TX81z; from the '90s a Roland JX-305; and onto present day software" says the release. It will all seduce you. With Beat Broker, Hotthobo, YR Skull, and epicsauce DJs at the Push the Feeling party.

LAST DEBASER EVER
And lo, after six years, many crowds, and a Best of the Bay award, SF's beloved '90s night is biting the big one. When it started, the thought of a '90s retro night was so unique! Now look at us: riddled with Boyz II Men and Hole tributes. I don't mind it. As for Debaser, DJs Jamie Jams and Emdee will be focusing on their Last Nite party, which is a tribute to the 2000s (www.facebook.com/lastnite00s). Now I will miss the '90s twice over!
Sat/1, 10pm-2am, $5, free with flannel before 11pm. The Knockout, 3223 Mission, SF. www.facebook.com/debaser90s
