He made his formal debut under his given name with a couple singles released over the past few months, "Sleepy Kids" and "The Gene Sequence," each signaling a shift away from house toward a sound more readily incorporating elements of hip-hop, downtempo and bass music. Now Crenshaw has uploaded a mixtape "inspired by themes of otherworldly exploration and retrofuturism." Heavy on his own tracks and remixes (and one cut featuring The Cool Kids), Transmission 001 also includes tunes from the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, DJ Shadow and Salva.

Event: AYLI pres. Bloom
Venue: Monarch
DJs: Dr. Rubinstein, Erika, Christina Chatfield, Jacob Park
Music: techno, tech-house, electro
Cover: $15-20
As You Like It is premiering a new night, Bloom. The name may seem a bit heavy handed given the theme: all female electronic lineups. While the inimitable Georgia O'Keefe will not be present to show her blooming blowers, Tel Aviv's Dr. Rubinstein will be. The Israeli artist moved to Berlin four years ago and has been impressing crowds at ://about blank and Berghain and she has been moving her selecting to more and more interesting places, including the Organik Festival in Taiwan. Although she is not associated with labels, the word of mouth has been big on this one and although she does not produce, that has seemed unnecessary considering the strength of her mixes. Joining Rubinstein is Detroit techno artist Erika, whose music is ever referencing the history of the hometown of techno and the artist herself. Joining will be AYLI's own Christina Chatfield. (ML)

Event: Skream (open to close)
Venue: Audio
DJs: Skream
Music: dubstep, UK garage
Cover: $10-20
Although still rather young, Skream (neé Ollie Jones) was a huge progenitor of the dubstep genre. Although dubstep has moved away from its island tinged reggae style roots, Skream was at the forefront of the movement as it emerged from the UK garage scene. His early work with Benga around 2005 was a change in the sounds the scene would hear for years to come. Despite his early successes, Jones has continued to make sounds that stem from UK garage and move into new territories. With sets that often comprise garage, grime, and 4/4 beats, Skream is a legend who will certainly be diving deep with this 5 hour set. Don't miss if you're a fan of this sound or a fan of electronic music history. (ML)

When it comes down to all the hype, his name says it all. He is Worthy. With an in-depth knowledge of production, mixing, and performance, Worthy has the insight to play for his audience, cultivating intense positive energy on the dance floor. From salty aired islands to dark club basements, over the past 10 years, Worthy has paid reverence to the traditional form of classic house while tripping off the mark and sinking into the euphoric less-charted territories of booty-clapping bass. As Carl Cox said, "The Worthy sound has always been powerful, rocking, funky, bass-driven music at its best, and for me this is the new wave in house music." He establishes an energetic dance floor camaraderie that makes even the most skeptic hater's booty shake. Playing along Worthy is the dynamic duo Lisbona Sisters - Their musical style varies from house, disco, techno and sweet ass funk have been known to weave their ways in with little surprise visits from 80s pop/electro and 90s R&B. In only a couple years of DJing, they've played alongside some of the industry's finest, including Soul Clap, Mr. C, Crazy P, Climbers and Lee Foss.
