DJ Kraddy, January 28 at the Bluebird

A founding member of the Glitch Mob, producer/DJ Kraddy is no stranger to the electronic-music scene. He's the mind behind "Android Porn," a track sometimes cited as the glitch-hop anthem, and although he began his career with breakbeats back in 2003, Kraddy's been mixing it up ever since, blending heavy hip-hop influences with dubstep and dancehall, splicing the genres in ways that make it difficult to pinpoint exactly what his sound is — and that's a good thing, especially with so many dubstep artists dropping near-identical sets. Kraddy definitely stands out from the crowd. He's recently remixed tracks for Mochipet and Echaskech, and his "Next Level" mash-ups — custom combinations created exclusively for his live sets — are the stuff of legend in the dubstep world. He's sure to take the Bluebird Theater to the next level when he plays there on Friday, January 28.
