Spring Break has sadly come to an end and I am starting to get back into my normal routine of being a student (but lacking when it comes to my blog). I am stuck reliving the good times I had during that week in my head. SXSW was the best part of my spring break for sure. If you have never been to the festival you’re definitely missing out. Austin is unlike every other part of Texas for sure. Dallas and Denton can compare to it, but Austin surpasses them in all forms of enjoyment. The city is just jam packed with bars restaurants. The number of bars there are in Austin is the equivalent to the number of casinos in Las Vegas. Friday I went to the I Heart Comix! vs Mad Decent party. This party was so sick! From the free Dewars scotch mixed with ginger ale, actually surprisingly tasty, to the music, and everything in between. Simian Mobile Disco played a stellar set that night. A lot better one than I saw them play the following Saturday night. Diplo went off, although it only seemed like for 30 minutes. Luckily I had the chance to meet him after the show. Diplo was an incredibly chill guy, unlike JFK from MSTRKRFT who I met Saturday night and acted like a total douchebag. Saturday was awesome as well. I went to the Scion party at Stubbs BBQ. The vibe there was great. Digitalism played an impressive set followed by one hell of a performance by Chromeo. I can not wait to see Chromeo again at Coachella. Saturday we went to the party at VICE. The DJ sets were mainly hard electro. It was my first time to see the Bloody Beetroots. I was really impressed with their skills and showmanship. I don’t know how these guys play with those spiderman mask on. How are they supposed to smoke and drink? In the end, I would say SXSW was probably one of the funnest music festivals I have been to right next to Coachella.









So yesterday I did a post on who would be better to see at SXSW; MSTRKRFT of Digitalism? However, I was unable to post it on my wordpress site because I was having trouble with the videos. So CLICK HERE to go to my Blogger site to see the post and give your input. Peace & Beats



DJ Tocadisco – The Black Series (Part 2)

Tech-House at its finest. Amazing build up before the bass drops on “Morumbi.”

Deadmau5 – Faxing Berlin [Mau5trap]

Deadmau5 is one of my favorite progressive house djs from last year. With Chris Lake’s take on “Faxing Berlin” I know why. I can’t wait to see Deadmau5 at Coachella this year. I wonder if I will enjoy seeing him early in the afternoon in the blistering heat as much as I would if I saw him at night like at TAO or something. For some reason I don’t think I will.

In honor of MSTRKRFT releasing their spring tour dates and their new kick ass poster I have been listening to MSTRKRFT The Looks today. I remember walking into the front gate of Coachella last year and hearing MSTRKRFT play Daft Punk’s “Rolling & Scratchin.” The bass was so loud and could be heard over all the other stages. Needless to say, my friend and I sprinted over to the stage as fast as we could. Peace & Beats

Top Tracks: “Easy Love” “Paris” “Street Justice” “Neon Nights”
