Over five days, 15 area venues host a bevy of electronic musical acts set against a background of vibrant sets and visual displays. The Cannabinoids featuring Erykah Badu take the vaudeville-era stage of the historic Paramount Theatre on Friday for a collaborative display of hip-hop psychedelia. After the release of her fifth album, New Amerykah Part One (Fourth World War), the enigmatic Badu corralled a medley of DJs and musicians to join her in an improvised musical project punctuated by her raspy soprano. The result is a dynamic mash-up that may showcase gospel chords cascading across a keyboard, dueling record scratches, and sheet music fed into an onstage wood-chipper.

A cornerstone of Seattle's University District for more than 90 years, The Neptune Theatre was an early movie theater that now functions as a modern music venue. On Thursday, Shpongle entrances concert-goers with its signature blend of world music sounds—ranging from Moroccan drums to Turkish operatic singing—polished with modern studio production techniques. The duo is comprised of Simon Posford, a.k.a. Hallucinogen, known for his experimentation with sound through computers, and Raja Ram, a music industry veteran and founding member of the sixties band Quintessence who performs flute solos and designs Shpongle's visual art.
