MSTRKRFT

Do thumping club tracks move better when they're being pumped out by a couple of guys donning gold Jason Voorhees masks? Maybe. In the four years that Toronto duo MSTRKRFT has been supplying thick electro-house, the two producers have kept some impressive company. They've famously remixed everyone from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to John Legend to Kylie Minogue to Metric to, most bizarrely, Jesse McCartney.

10 p.m. Wednesday, July 1, at Liv, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $30 in advance from wantickets.com. Age 21 and up. Call 305-674-4680, or click here.

The pair's second full-length, Fist of God, dropped this past March and keeps up the heady pace. The album shoots by with blurry, buzzing rhythms and vocal clips heavy on that repeat-peat-peating effect. And this five-alarm fire of a party doesn't B.S. about any artistic ambitions. The track "Word Up," for example, is built out of snippets of Ghostface Killah intoning "It's all in your fuckin'" and "Do it hard." The only way these guys could get more raw is if they wore Chucky masks instead.
