Smart bets: BEAT LIFE

Despite its mountaincentric name, the Asheville Beat Tape Collective actually aims to unite far-flung electronic musicians in addition to fulfilling its local networking mission. Founded by DJ and producer Nigel One, the collaborative sphere churns out multiartist compilation CDs and hosts regular performances where local enthusiasts can “cross-pollinate” with performers from across the globe. One such event, BEAT LIFE, will feature performances by local acts Panther God, Emerald Curtain, Musashi Xero and Portugal by Day as well as a set by Toledo, Ohio’s Heavy Color. Headlining the show is Los Angeles-based Mono/Poly who is known, according to his bio, for pairing “face-melting bass” with “dreamy astral soundscapes of glitch-based hip-hop.” BEAT LIFE starts at 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 28, at One Stop. $10.
