Doug Fir Lounge

[ELECTRO-CRYSTAL] Dropping Gems, Portland’s ambient-electronic label, is branching out with the third Gem Drops, an annual compilation and artist showcase. According to the label, this year’s comp will cover stylistic territory including “gritty forest beat, maximalist shuttle launch, underground lake narrative, late-night loner keyboard, futuristic hip-hop and emo-juke.” For a bunch of artists who have no problem switching between ethereal synths and hard-hitting hip-hop beats, that’s as good a descriptor as any. The show and album include Gems labelmates DJAO, Citymouth and Ghost Feet. Supporting them are three off-label but stylistically similar acts: Portland-based Philip Grass, Boston’s M. Constant and Wires for Salu, a side project of San Francisco-based producer Devonwho, in its first performance. There are only six tracks on this year’s comp, but it is the first to be released on 12-inch vinyl. As we’ve come to expect from Dropping Gems, though few in number, these gems are golden.
