The URB contingent has landed in Austin and while our list of acts to see and parties to visit this year is seemingly infinite, we put our heads together to decide on a list of 5 acts that we’re especially looking forward to catching.
TNGHT – It had to happen sometime; heavyweight badman and WARP impresario Hudson Mohawke is set to debut his collaboration with Lunice, one of Montreal’s most prolific producers. Playing later in the week, we at URB honestly don’t know how to handle the excitement; but we know it’ll involve some booming drops and unreleased dubs. In other words, it has to happen ASAP. — MS
TNGHT will premiere at Warp/Brainfeeder’s party on Saturday the 17th.
Jackmaster B2B Oneman – Finally, those of us who haven’t been able to pay up to cross the pond for a Boiler Room session will get to see two of the UK’s finest DJs go back-to-back on American turf during what’s sure to be a highlight of SXSW, finishing off the week on Saturday at a party thrown by Young Turks with SBTRKT, A$AP Rocky, Machinedrum and more. — CM
Jackmaster and Oneman will go back-to-back at the Young Turks party on Saturday the 17th. You can also see them separately at Fader Fort on Thursday.
