In the late ’90s/early ’00s, Richard Devine reigned as king of the mind-fuckingly complex rhythm & confuse realm of IDM. His beat and texture science was beyond next level—like a more rigorous, less whacky Squarepusher. His releases for Schematic—Lipswitch, Aleamapper, and Asect:Dsect—plotted some of the most labyrinthine rhythmic patterns ever cut. Now immersed in the sound-design world with Native Instruments, Korg, and others, Devine rarely leaves the lab, so this chance to see him live should not be squandered. Raica (Further Records co-owner Chloe Harris) has become one of the city’s most versatile and riveting live performers. Every show differs from the last and they all boast a unique sonic vocabulary that typically leans toward the bizarre and deceptively danceable. Remember how she upstaged Andy Stott at Neumos earlier this year? DAVE SEGAL
