CHUCKIE The Dutch purveyor of dirty house has remixed for Michael Jackson and David Guetta, and produced for 50 Cent and Keisha. Of his recent 2014 release, his website says, “Squeaky clean and impossibly infectious, ‘Dirty Funkin Beats’ throws back to a simpler time, when the pitch bends were plentiful and the breaks were spastic.” He appears with Gregori Klosman.

THE KNOCKS As roommates in New York City, Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson annoyed the neighbors with their loud studio set-ups. According to Ruttner, “They’d knock on the walls and bang on the ceiling,” and hence the electronic duo’s name. Their sound combines Patterson’s background in soul and funk and Ruttner’s expertise in trip-hop and hip-hop. They appear with ASTR. June 14, 6 p.m. $15. Brighton Music Hall, 158 Brighton Ave., Allston. www.ticketmaster.com
