Four Signal acts not to miss

Who: Jason Forrest
From: Berlin
What: Breakcore, mash-up
Where: Local 506
When: Saturday, midnight
Why: When Forrest took Donna Summer as his nom de mouse, producing mash-ups and moving dance floors while teasing heavy metal into rhythmic chunks, he didn't care about copyright. "There are too many people doing too much to stop sampling in any effective way," he says. And of his debaucherous shows, he jokes, "Imagine Iggy Pop with a laptop, and you're getting close ... ha!"


Who: Deepsky

From: Hollywood
What: Progressive, trance
Where: Penang
When: Saturday, 12:30 a.m.
Why: The West Coast duo produces long-form tracks, often including vocals, for the late-night big-club crowd, and have been doing so for over 10 years. They have moved heavily into the remix market in recent years, doing work for Madonna, David Bowie and Paul Oakenfold.


Who: Sleazy McQueen
From: Chapel Hill
What: House, disco
Where: Avalon
When: Friday,
10 p.m.

Why: J.T. "$tinkworx" Stewart calls McQueen his "local house-head friend" and has an upcoming remix of a McQueen tune to be released by the Swiss label Morris Audio. McQueen emerged as a part of the regional Newkular Family collective.


Who: Ja'Maul Redmond
From: Charlotte
What: Detroit-inspired techno
Where: Nightlight
When: Friday, check venue for time
Why: Redmond, often known as Loner9, produces live tracks using abstract elements and the rough format of early techno, a sub-genre usually created with analogue synthesizers and drum machines.
