Rio de Janeiro's answer to Daft Punk, The Twelves, make their way to SF for a special Live performance! The band was formed by the duo Joao Miguel and Luciano Oliveira back in 2005. Their breakthrough came in July of 2007 when they remixed the track, 'Boyz' from M.I.A's sophomore album, Kala. The reworked track with an added club feel resulted in one of the most talked about remixes of 2007. The duo followed 'Boyz' with equally well received remixes for Asobi Seksu and Erlend Oye, and soon after that their 'Get Lucky' remix by New Young Pony club catapulted The Twelves alongside household names like MSTRKRFT and Who Made Who.
Top that off with with on the hottest up and coming electronic acts, Grum, who's rise to prominence has been one of Justice-style proportions.! Since tracks such as "Heartbeats" first started appearing on blogs like Discodust, Grum's music has been in such demand that HYPE MACHINE recently calculated he was the second most blogged act in the world, behind Radiohead."Grum's super-cool D.I.Y. ethic and taste for electronic music old and new means he's probably our hottest tip since Aeroplane first took off" -Ralph Moore, Mixmag.
