sxsw+2013-1

Much of the inner-Austin area will be shut down this weekend, overrun by industry execs from the film, music, and tech world. That is, essentially, what South by Southwest means to Austinites. It sounds miserable, I know, but at least we can mooch as much as possible from the festival by attending its many free shows, and quite a few of the showcases have amazing artists.

[Mashup Monday] D.VELOPED – Totally Recalled (Flosstradamus Mashup)

After some copyright issues with their original version of “Total Recall,” Flosstradamus gets a mashup remix by North Carolina (RAISE UP!) producer D.VELOPED.

There’s samples of Beastie Boys, Lil’ Jon, Outkast, The Gorillaz, and Quad City DJ’s. Hollaaaaa

Flosstradamus | “Total Recall”

Chicago duo Flosstradamus seem to have left behind their mash-ups and pop tracks to move into some more electronic/house flair, and it’s sounding pretty good, thus far. “Total Recall” is supposed to be a showcase of the new direction they’re heading in. At 3 and 1/2 minutes, the song hits hard and pulsates with a grinding beat and infinite hand claps. The song has already hit #1 on the Hype Machine lists. RAGE.

Flosstradamus @ Republic Live 10/7

Some of our favorite DJs, Flosstradamus, are coming back to the ATX next week as part of the Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit Tour! And IT’S FREE (w/ RSVP)!

For those of you who don’t know these guys, they’ve done insane mashups like Lil Jon vs. Zombie Nation and Twista vs. Sigur Ros. And their live set is a giant dance party, so be there or be lame.
