Tuesday SXSW Showcases

First night hangs – showcases!


Parkgolf

RADIO Jack

Elysium

Online producer/DJ showcase Radio Jack presents a night of international dance mixes. Tokyo's Texiyama specializes in mixes fast and frenetic, while Virginia DJ DZZ shows an affinity for J-pop, and UK import Sega Bodega demonstrates a more universal preference. Hokkaido's Parkgolf also paints in J-pop via last year's debut Par. Austin, meanwhile, gives up young DJ collective Destiny Bond, which casts a wide net for each mix. Louisiana's Nightcorey prefers his cuts sped up for maximum silly fun. Norway's Rytmeklubben creates its dance pop using actual instruments on last year's Girlfriend EP, but North Carolina's Grrl goes back to mixes, often with an Asian slant. Young Japanese collective Pa's Lam System emphasizes pop à la its online single "I'm Coming." Countryman DJ Wildparty brings breakcore to the masses with Mogra Mix Vol. 1. Finally, Tokyo's Tomad – founder of Maltine Records, home to many of these spinners – closes back at J-pop.
