Janelle Bitker, the Sacramento News & Review music and arts writer, joins us for this week’s Sound Advice to share some tips on local bands and emerging artists. Bitker is working on a feature story about emerging electronica artists both locally and nationally and we’ll hear some clips from some of her favorite producers.

Jannelle's first choice: A Walk by Tycho. Tycho is now internationally recognized but got his start playing the Sacramento scene.

The second track is Time Bomb by Sacramento's own Dj Nick Nack more traditional elctronic dance music than Tycho's heavily ambiant track.




Next up, jazz inspired Second Line by Big Joe Daddy from Davis.




Finally Janelle shared a Skrillex remix of Fire Away by two local producers known as Zero Friends.



If you're interested in checking out the local electronic dance music scene Janelle suggests visiting Barfly on Fridays, Badlands has a party on Wednesdays, and you might also check out Press Club, and Starlight Lounge
