Engelwood.

Engelwood.

Madison-based hip-hop producer Engelwood's penchant for breezy funk and playful tropicalia textures have earned him a strong online following. The past year has been especially busy, bringing the release of a mostly instrumental solo project called Hotel Wood, a collaboration with LA-based producer Simon Eng called Jazz Channel, and the unlikely breakout success of one of Engelwood's collaborators, fellow Madisonian Yung Gravy. (Strange that Yung Gravy isn't on this post-Thanksgiving bill himself, given the rapper's penchant for combining sex and food.) Silky, sunny Hotel Wood tracks like "Bayside" and "Good Times" capture the persona and sound Engelwood has carved out (and their vibe is welcome this time of year), but Jazz Channel finds him stretching out into more ambient-influenced territory. At this show, dubbed "Electric Turkey," he'll share the lineup with Minneapolis house DJ Mike Mac and Madison DJ fixtures Wangzoom and Whodie Guthrie. —Scott Gordon
