March 22 at Nokia Theatre Times Square

This big-beat trio, bred out of the British rave scene of the mid-nineties, found a degree of mainstream success that was near unrivaled at the time for an electronic act; their well-received 2005 album, Their Law: Singles, brought them back into the public eye.

As one half of the mellow trip-hop act Kruder & Dorfmeister, Kruder found fame for his groovy reworkings of pop songs; this week, he brings his D.J. skills to one of the best house-music spots in town.
