    Nora En Pure

    Nora En Pure, born Daniela Niederer, discovered electronic music while studying criminal justice in college nearly a decade ago and fell in love, rocketing into a constellation of stars playing Coachella and Tomorrowland, both last year. Known for soft, springtime synths and warm piano chords in her tech and deep house productions, the South African-Swiss DJ also takes the helm of a new weekly Sirius XM Chill Channel radio show this year called Purified. Austin Chronicle: How has your approach to DJ’ing changed since you started? Nora En Pure: Sometimes, when I check back on old sets of mine, I wonder what the heck I was thinking! In terms of DJ’ing, I have phases. Presently, I’m becoming a bit stricter with my approach, as I used to really try to adapt my set to the audience. Now, I’m pushing a bit more what I want to play and feel really fits. AC: So many DJs and producers grew up going to raves or warehouse parties. Did you have a local scene? NEP: When I was very young, I listened more to rock music, but at home there was also a lot of classical music. I got into electronic music pretty late, but I was hooked to its energy and creative freedom. I enjoy the link between electronic music and classical instruments, so still now I’m really inspired by soundtracks and composers like Hans Zimmer. AC: Has your dedicated following affected or changed your artistic vision at all? NEP: I do keep it in the back of my mind to maintain my signature sound. We try to spread these warm melodies with punchy basslines. Of course it’s tempting to try different things! I like darker music as well. I enjoy groovy, melodic, tech house as well, so it’s nice to experiment in my releases like “Trailblazer.” Keep things fresh, but also keep pushing the sound people know and love.

    The Mavericks, Liz Brasher

    After selling out previous Moody engagements, Nashville’s Tex-Mex all-stars stay over for a second show. Raul Malo remains the Cuban Roy Orbison, crooning and booming in rollicking style on last March’s debut indie release for the band, Brand New Day. Memphis-based Fat Possum singer-songwriter Liz Brasher opens with deep Dominican family roots.

    Roots music iconoclast Ralph White (Bad Livers) and psych punk adventurer Steve Marsh (Evil Triplet, Terminal Mind) share a passion for pushing boundaries on brand-new acid folk opus Two Distinguished Gentlemen.

Lindsey Verrill, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, and Marcus Rubio, plus keyboardist Joe Hendrix and singer-songwriter Chris Catalena, join in the fun.

    Earthkry, Lion Heights

    This lean and mean roots reggae quartet united while attending arts college in Kingston, Jamaica. A Top 10 placement in the 2015 World Reggae Contest then put them on the map. Fusing Bob Marley, Steel Pulse, and the Beatles, Earthkry’s 2017 debut Survival is chock-full of crucial grooves and social consciousness.

    Mirrors for Psychic Warfare, Crawl, Deep Cross, Derelict Satellite

    A spin-off of a spin-off, MFPW grew out of avant-metal supergroup Corrections House (Neurosis’ Scott Kelly, Eyehategod’s Mike IX Williams, Yakuza frontman Bruce Lamont, Chicago metal producer Sanford Parker). The pairing of Kelly and Parker now downplays rhythm in favor of noise and distortion underpinning the former’s droning mutter on their eponymous 2016 LP. Local blackened sludge beast Crawl, avant electronicist Deep Cross, and metal machine musician Derelict Satellite open.
