SXSW Music Review: De La Soul/Black Pumas/Leikeli47
“Bulldozer, make room.” Those three words from Leikeli47’s “Tic Boom” served as a mandate. Get out of the way because this self-proclaimed “rockstar mixed with a ghetto chick” is about to blow. Clad in a sweatsuit, fur coat, and face mask, the Brooklyn rapper proved an absolute force of nature on “No Reload” and “Attitude.”

SXSW Music Review: Jazz Re:Freshed Showcase
Another thrilling Jazz Re:Freshed showcase of young Londoners followed in the footsteps of two previous SXSW showcases on Wednesday at the old Emo’s, now the Main.

SXSW Music Review: Byrke Lou
Algorhythmist Byrke Lou sparks live code into audio at interfacing crossroads that remained a visual mystery.

Germany Music Night host Christopher Schrag thus implored the audience to “feel the code.”
