For the 12th year in a row, director Sean Horton has lined up a world-class bill for Decibel Festival. It's another bountiful smorgasbord of electronic-music and digital visual art, featuring an exciting array of artists working in techno, house, hiphop, ambient, footwork, night bus, R&B, and other genres. Some of the essential performers in its five showcase-packed, conference-intensive days include Autechre, Jlin, Marcel Dettmann, Pharmakon, Shifted, Raica, and the Black Madonna. It pays to be adventurous at Decibel, as some of the most obscure acts end up being the most interesting. DAVE SEGAL
