Dig beat maker and deejay Bird Peterson for both his party-vibe style and also his songs’ dance-floor feel. It’s headphone music, but you can move to it. Consider both the hip-hop feel of his Ludacris remix, on his MySpace page now, and also his Mstrkrft “Keep It Hood 5000” remix, which is dubstep bass and electro dance interjected with classic soul interludes and rap verse. The tracks have cool production value, but are also danceable, like ’70s grindhouse meets big, Hard L.A.-esque festival beats—which may be too much for Sacto, yeah? Whatever; prove me wrong this Wednesday on The Press Club’s dance floor. With DJ Whores; no cover before 10 p.m. 2030 P Street, www.birdpeterson.com.
