You read that right! We’re coming to you from Austin, Texas for our first ever event and our first ever SXSW showcase. We’ve taken a small hiatus for the last year to really focus on internal projects, re-structuring, and of course bringing you fresh content you deserve. This year we’ve linked up with IRL Music based out of NYC to showcase a level of talent and artists that are on the come up.
Boston-bred Ethan Budnick – aka Robokid – has had his hand in a number of collectives through the years such as Peachboiz, Lifted Contingencies, and the more current Moving Castle Collective. However, it wasn’t until recently that his name circulated into the spotlight after his formally unreleased track “23” was selected as the official featured song between all sets during the Coachella live stream.
DJ Shadow has a long-standing reputation as one of the most influential disc jockeys in the instrumental hip-hop genre. His ability to sample various sounds and phrases into his tracks is unmatched, and has led him to become the first producer in the game to have their music described as trip-hop when his “In/Flux” single started circulating the London club scene in 1994.
