Tonight marks the release of the latest recording from Portland producer Rap Class, eight tracks of original sample-based electronic music created between 2006 and 2009, somewhat deceptively titled Greatest Hits. Anyone expecting a hiphop tutorial, or any rap at all, will be sorely disappointed, but fans of experimental soundscapes will find there's a lot here to enjoy. Rap Class is the musical pseudonym of John Kammerle, a member of the local Dropping Gems collective, whose work is distinct from a lot of electronic music, in part due to the sample-chopping he creates on an all-hardware setup. Time Wharp and M. Constant from Boston's Jass collective close out the night. RYAN FEIGH
