With Decibel and Chance of Rain on hiatus, secondnature and other local crews have stepped up to fill the late-September electronic-music-fest void with the first annual KremFest. Thankfully, the lineup is varied and full of names not usually seen on festival bills; if past secondnature-sponsored events are indicative, KremFest should be outstanding. Some highlights: house maverick Todd Edwards, who rarely makes it out West; long-time electro deities Ectomorph (and their constituents, Erika and BMG, in solo guise); eclectic French/Dekmantel-affiliated experimentalist Voiski; master of jagged-jump-cut electro Vektroid. And others. Frankly, it’s the others who usually end up impressing you the most.
