As Mochipet, Daly City, Cali's David Y. Wang is a man who wears a purple dinosaur costume on stage, and cranks out his experimental dance music with undeniable passion. Having worked with artists like Spank Rock and Ellen Allien, he's now releasing an album of highly uncategorizable-but-let's-call-it-hip-hop on his own label. And tonight he's joining local artist Lusine, crafter of gorgeous ambient glitch, for Broken Disco's farewell-til-fall soiree. Starting as a collaboration between four ambitious promoters last April, the consistently banging party has never been afraid of odd lineups, opening minds in the process of loosening limbs. Take it from a temporary Central European resident who's tired of hearing Haddaway passed off as techno in the clubs: not every major city has such an exacting finger on dance music's pulse. Seattle's scene is one to be treasured. Whoop it up, and support BD-associated productions until their summer siesta is over.
