Seattle’s mecca for underground-electronic music and edgy, queer-centric events, Kremwerk, celebrates its fifth anniversary all weekend. Among this extravaganza’s highlights is Patrick Russell and Beta Librae. The former is a Brooklyn DJ/producer/remixer who records for Bunker New York and Interdimensional Transmissions, two of America’s greatest labels for boundary-pushing techno and electro, respectively. Expect the headiest of hedonistic tracks in those styles. Fellow Brooklynite Beta Librae (aka Bailey Hoffman) has remixed rising star Yaeji’s “One More” and possesses a featherlight touch with abstractly funky jungle, dubstep, and exotic house. Her set should make for a wonderful contrast with Russell’s.
