If any artist or band can claim the word “elusive” as a descriptor, it’s Detroit’s Dopplereffekt. The four-man outfit has been crafting its electronic music since 1995, but members still hide behind their German pseudonyms, rarely perform live, and there are no known interviews with the band (although it does have a MySpace page).

Even so, car company Scion managed to wrangle these mysterious boys out of the shadows and convince them to play a few live dates this month, in conjunction with Volume 24 of the Scion CD Sampler series, which was mixed by the Discobelle crew.

Tonight’s Miami show marks Dopplereffekt’s U.S. debut. Best to RSVP for entry.

The Discobelle DJs will join the band for support. All shows are free with RSVP.
