Oct. 18

Electronic music tends to be coldly analytical. That is not the case with Phutureprimitive. The electronic dance music moniker of Bay Area producer and songwriter Rain, Phutureprimitive finds, nurtures and gives voice to the ghosts in the machines. Though primarily dance music, Rain mines a dark and dense palette of emotional expanses that work as well as body shakers as they do as mind benders. His just-released full-length, “Searching for Beauty in the Darkest Places Pt 2” on Native Harmonix is a cinematic survey of post-millennium, beat-laden tension. The shifting melodic uplifts of “Energy Flow” and “Innocence Lost” are tactically evasive while being immediate. It’s this distinctive push-pull that is the central element of his appeal. Phutureprimitive brings his machine-driven humanizations to the Broadberry on Sunday, Oct. 18. Denver-based EDM duo Bass Physics open. The party kicks in at 9 p.m. $12-$15. thebroadberry.com.
