Funkss, Doom Asylum, Nick James, Raphael 

When: Sat., Nov. 8, 10 p.m. 2014
Price: $5

In September, I sat down with Jake Funke, the young musician who goes by the name Funkss, for an afternoon beer to talk about the small but very potent cache of electronic artists he's helped helm in Raleigh. When I asked him when his debut EP might finally arrive, he hesitated: "It was supposed to be out in August. That's the part I don't really know that much about, so I rely on my friends for help." He must be a fast learner: Funkss' six-track release Radon arrives tonight, and it's excellent. Spinning between deep, dodgy dubstep ("Taste") and halcyon handclap-and-piano bliss ("Wheels"), with stops for slow-motion electro and collected footwork along the way, the 22-minute set feels both animated and articulated. It's the work of someone equally accustomed to conducting late-night-out dance floors as a DJ and late-night-in beat-making benders as a producer. With Doom Asylum, Nick James and Raphael. 10 p.m., $5, 14 W. Martin St., 919-833-1091, —Grayson Haver Currin
