Straight out of London’s underground dance scene comes TroyBoi, whose trap tracks bring Venue 578 a taste of the purest uncut filth that’s pumping out of the veins of dubstep’s birthplace. Perfect for both the most basic of betches and the glitchiest of tweakers, TroyBoi blends the best of hip-hop and EDM into a homogenized fusion of booming 808s, crackling high hats, popping claps and earth-shuddering breakdowns. The man himself is relatively unknown in the game but he’s recently gained notoriety for tracks he’s collaborated on with Flosstradamus, Diplo and Nina Sky. Though arguably more in tune with the zeitgeist of EDM styles, TroyBoi’s breadth of artistry is evident in his experimental and progressive tracks inspired by melodies derived from African and Middle Eastern influences. Expect pulse-pounding builds peaking at weightless drops that land into grinding grooves accompanied by high-tech LED special effects.

10 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14 | Venue 578, 578 N Orange Ave. | venue578.com | $10-$15
