Meat Beat Manifesto has a new recording, new live show

San Francisco-based Meat Beat Manifesto has begun a promotional tour for its 10th album, “Autoimmune,” released this week on Metropolis Records. Led by sound sculptor Jack Dangers, the constantly evolving band continues to pushes boundaries in the world of dubstep and electronica.

Dangers, a premiere remixer, producer and sound designer, has played a huge role in the genre; he’s worked with acts from Public Enemy to David Bowie to Depeche Mode, the Bee Gees and DJ Spooky.

But MBM’s charms aren’t limited to listening. The group’s multimedia live performances have been a called “sensory onslaught.” Dangers says, “The live performance has become an integral component of my sound and production. The question is how to do it better than last time.”

Sound alchemist Raz Mesinai — appearing under the moniker Badawi — opens the show, which starts at 9 p.m. Friday at Slim’s, 333 11th St., San Francisco. Tickets are $21 to $23. Call (415) 255-0333 or visit www.slims-sf.com.
