ph10, Friday, October 15, at Seven South, will return to the state but not the planet at their first show in the area since relocating to New York City earlier this year. The eclectic duo -- a curious collaboration between former LD-50 members Recone Helmut and Clark ov Saturn -- combines electronica, drum and bass, ambient and even the occasional lounge theme into a musical stew that's as danceable as it is smart. It's a style that's gained the twosome the hard-earned respect of crowds in European and New York clubs, including the infamous Knitting Factory, that bastion of avant-garde and experimental music. With DJ Jackalope on the bill, Friday's show should prove a worthy adventure in turntabalism, with Helmut and ov Saturn as your trusty sonic tour guides. -- Laura Bond
