The duo of Canadians Pat Drastik and Tom Wrecks, THUGLI grew up on a diet and enduring love of Southern music, feeding on the sounds of Memphis, Houston and Atlanta. With a blueprint of running trap and assorted Drake hooks through an EDM filter, their remix career seems to have fulfilled the pair’s early aspirations. But they’ve taken it further on the 2013 Onslaught EP, a stomping effort that caught the effort of the Fool’s Gold and Mad Decent labels, leaders in the crossover world of EDM and hip-hop. On digital workstations and Technic 1200 turntables, the pair bobs around the stale expectations of EDM, putting in beats that could serve the purposes of Three 6 Mafia or Skrillex. In the video for “Run This,” hosted by Vice EDM imprint Thump, a light, oscillating ping takes a turn into darkness as a boy grows up to be a cop whose ideal vision of good police is Denzel Washington in Training Day. With Katabolic, The Phatbois, Trip Pimps. $10, 9pm, Greenhouse, 4553 N Loop 1604, (210) 393-0511 —Matt Stieb
