Saturday SXSW Showcases

Leaving Records

8pm, Empire Control Room

Empire Control Room plays with a stacked deck, hosting an absolutely loaded showcase for Leaving Records, a label co-run by versatile experimentalist Matthewdavid. The producer flipped scripts with an unusual turn at granola-crunchy R&B on second Brainfeeder release In My World. Sun Ra-influenced Ras G re-ups with Koreatown Oddity for another SXSW go, providing hip-hop with a cosmic thump. Seiho Hayakawa of Osaka, Japan, brings fearlessness to his splashy collages, willing to gorge on airy bombast and bounce. Brooklyn-based avant-garde polymath Deantoni Parks heads experimental collective KUDU, but most recently formed Bosnian Rainbows with Omar Rodríguez-López. He released his ambitious debut, Technoself, late last year. Cakedog dedicated his excellent Menace in the Phantom to DJ Rashad as a proper tribute to the footwork movement. Balladeer Trance Farmers (the enigmatic Dayve Samek) may break out via dirty garage/alt-blues. Producer/monome enthusiast Daedelus comes back, styled straight out of a futurist Poe novel.
