Maestro of that muscular quasi-minimal Ibiza sound — and not bad to look at, either — Mr. Dice blew me away last time he touched down, a couple years back. He'll be on the 1015 system this time: All aboard the silver spaceship.

Here's a "flashback" night for ya: Master at Work and Latin house legend. He'll be stretching back into his roots with some Afrobeat, samba, disco, and soul at Mighty. With old school heroes David Harness and Jayvi Velasco.
Fri/20, 10pm-4am, $20 advance. Mighty, 119 Utah, SF. www.mighty119.com
"Join us for wild brass, abandon, and reverberating floors" — you can say that again, as this whirling, stomping Balkan delight returns to its Rickshaw Stop home.
