The Finale! Dubstep Producer Battle

When: Fri., Jan. 20, 9 p.m. 2012

While dubstep isn't always the most accessible genre in the electronic ecosystem, it can really stir up a dance floor, in the right environment, and with the right producers calling shots. OG Productions and co-presenter Maurice Laflamme III will strive to create that setting in their dubstep producer battle, which will pit three local kingpins against each other in a "Vegas-style" lounge. The contestants -- Taso, Fivel,  KontrolFreqs -- all have a vast cache of tracks available on Soundcloud, ranging from sample-driven "brostep" to glitchy, curveball, computerized stuff. At this competition they'll each play four back to back, while the audience votes by applause. Organizers also promise catwalks, "furry" walls, full bars, and a formidable sound system. It happens at FUEL Lounge (1108 Market St., San Francisco) on Friday, Jan. 20. 9 p.m., $5 before 10 p.m., $10 thereafter. FuelSF.com
