Viper Creek Club

Viperlust is the new remix album from Seattle indie electro duo Viper Creek Club, collecting their takes on such local (mostly hip hop) acts as Blue Scholars, Mad Rad, Hi Life Soundsystem, and others. VCC’s remixes are crisp and clean, gliding from 4/4 drum kicks and boom bap to loping, Neptunes-derived hand percussion, and from piano chords and soft, gauzy pads to elastic, buzzing, zig-zagging synthesizer arpeggios. Tonight, they’ll perform their remixes live with the featured artists, who may also freestyle over some new, unreleased VCC originals. Opening the show are Metal Chocolates, the OC Notes/Rik Rude combo that’s pushing Seattle hip hop in some of the weirdest, most promising directions this side of Shabazz Palaces, and Truckasauras, the town’s analog electro titans. Hashtag: SWAG. With DJ Darwin, DJ 100Proof. ERIC GRANDY
