    La Morena, Bitter Teen, Andy, Father Figure, Fee Lion, Lachane, House of Kenzo, Eris Drew

    ATX sexual health service Kind Clinic hosts Chicago house luminary Eris Drew, whose Smartbar residency put him among genre shapers Derrick Carter and Frankie Knuckles. Musician and trans mystic, he spins with human cubist art forms House of Kenzo, a San Antonio vogue crew serving face and dripping sweat in glitter platforms. Chicago’s Fee Lion imports latex body suits and fog machines to set the tone for her electronic New Wave witchery, and Austin’s Holodeck Records deals Lachane with slow, drudging synths like a barred out Chromatics.

    Chuck Prophet & the Mission Express (11:59, 8:00), Redd Volkaert

    Californian Chuck Prophet knew Austin from an Eighties stint with Green on Red when he co-wrote all the songs on Alejandro Escovedo’s 2008 firestarter, Real Animal. His Bobby Fuller Died for Your Sins last year employed the El Pasoan’s mysterious demise to explore the December of rock in bigger terms. Whether he’s singing about police murders or Connie Britton, Prophet strikes gut-truths with remarkable frequency.

    A$ap Ferg, Denzel Curry

    New York’s A$AP Mob spun off A$AP Rocky and now A$AP Ferg, who bring a certain unconventional charisma that not even his ubiquitous friend can boast. His hustle game includes the all-gold “Shabba” and sage “Hood Pope” on debut Trap Lord (2013), and Nicki Minaj-assisted “Plain Jane” on Still Striving (2017). Floridian Denzel Curry serves braggadocio and rabid energy first.

    DJ Dan, Colette, DJ Heather, Jonene & more

    Brooklyn-born, Chicago-based, Heather Robinson programmed hip-hop, rare grooves, and downtempo electronica in small bars before she could mix. “To me, ‘the Chicago sound’ has always been a combination of musical styles – house, disco, techno, gospel, et al. – and putting those elements together to create your own,” she emails. “What I play is a reflection of that ethos.” As DJ Heather, Robinson found her niche in deep, funky, Chicago house. A resident of the Windy City’s famed Smartbar, she mixed an early compilation for the influential Fabric mix series from the London club of the same name, and toured nonstop on her own and with her friend Colette Marino, a vocalist and fellow Smartbar resident. The pair headline a SXSW-like label showcase with Midwest funky breaks champion DJ Dan. “What happens when [Colette and I] play together is fun,” writes Robinson. “The set times are shorter, so we have to ‘tell our stories’ in a more condensed version. I think it works because we then have to get ‘to the point’ right away, which keeps the dance floor going. Robinson’s known for Apollo Music Group releases of squelchy tech-house, but fans of the lush deep house releases on her own dormant label Blackcherry Recordings are in for a surprise. “My new projects include collaborations with Lauren Flax and Scrubfish amongst others,” she reveals. “Blackcherry will relaunch this very April with an EP from J Fader.” Go, go, go Heather Robinson. “I feel as if I do tour perpetually and for that I am really grateful. I’ve learned to just roll with it.”
