Saturday SXSW Showcases


Berlin Beats

8pm, Plush

Making music in Germany always equates to constantly riding in the throes of creative insurgency, one over the other, ad infinitum. France import rRoxymore (Hermione Frank) sails the choppy currents using escalating textures and melodies. Her earthy brand of futurestep, found on the Precarious/Precious EP, rings atmospheric and unpredictable. Providence, R.I., native DJ Richard blends Euro and Yankee flavors, mixing a meditative coldwave with deep dark bass. His 2015 release, the beat-heavy Grind, works through levels of layered and immersive subtlety. Gaining exposure with electronic outfit Jahcoozi, Robot Koch (Robert Koch) trades in coolly mechanized emotions through textured waves and blips. The sunny and sensual Tsuki, his debut EP for Monkeytown Records, showcases a delicacy and warmth surely attributed to his recording in California.
