Phutureprimitive 

When: Sat., April 5, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $10, $20
Dancing is a natural form of escape, but few DJs embrace electronic dance music’s capacity for catharsis as much as longtime Bay Area producer and songwriter Rain, who performs under the name Phutureprimitive. On his last tour, he encouraged concertgoers to exorcise their fears on the dance floor by writing what they wanted to rid themselves of on a piece of paper, taping it to the bottom of their shoe, and dancing out their “demons.” By mixing down-tempo, glitch hop, dub, breaks, psychedelic rock, and soothing female vocals, Rain creates bass-heavy tracks that are mystical, hypnotic, and, at times, mind-melting. He’ll perform this week at The Uptown Nightclub (1928 Telegraph Ave., Oakland), with Sixis, Bird of Prey, DJ Edi, and VGNX.
