KINGS, RALEIGH

THURDAY, JAN. 28

Footwork maven, former North Carolina resident and expert troll DJ Paypal has enjoyed an exceptional few years. In addition to touring Japan and Australia, he linked up with Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label in November to release Sold Out, his first full-length. An extension of the experiments of late footwork pioneer DJ Rashad, the record injects the form's chopped, high BPM with a variety of unexpected styles, like disco and jazz, resulting in tracks that are unafraid to be cheeky. During "Ahhhhhhh," astral rhythms meet chipmunk soul for stylish, dizzying highs. "Slim Trak" and "Say Goodbye" see Paypal irreverently taking on Afrobeat and J-pop. It's fascinating, forward-thinking stuff from one of the most exciting modern electronic genres—and one of its most exciting young practitioners. Here's hoping the inevitable cease-and-desist doesn't drop anytime soon. An exceptional slate of locals—Eyes Low, Blursome and Chocolate Rice—fills the opening ranks. 9 p.m., $7$10, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, www.kingsbarcade.com. —David Ford Smith
