10 Electronic Dance Music Acts to Catch at SXSW by Taryn Haight

ENJOYMUSIC ENJOYLIFE MUSIC T- SHIRTS & CLOTHING IS GOING TO SXSW IN AUSTIN, TX.

We are glad Taryn points outs some cool dance music shows to check out – in addition to the over 2000 indie bands performing.

By Taryn Haight

With Miami festivals WMC and Ultra hogging the electronic music scene this month, Austin isn’t exactly the first place you’d target for a deejayed dance party that can press on til sunrise. It’s a thick scene for the indie rock bands and raspy guitar-strumming folk singers, but nestled between them — in the time separating dinner from breakfast — the DJs, and those hungry to hear them, turn to the tables. Here, the talent known by blogs and Beatport charts, or the talent that has yet to be discovered, serves up everything from booty bass to hyped-up electro, even creating new genres in the musical breeding ground of SXSW.

Leading up to a festival known for showcasing some of the best of the unknowns, there’s a certain buzz already upping the anticipation for DJ sets throughout the week. I’ve had my eyes and ears seduced by a few unique-sounding electronic artists online, but what I’m really seeking are the scratch action heroes who can render my feet useless in the AM. The blogs may all boast the Ableton skills of some teenager cranking out mixes from his basement, but if he can’t close out a party at Barcelona with the staff scrubbing scuff marks off the floor, his hyped-up skills might just get stuck somewhere in the suburbs.

On a less sardonic note, there are those guys I’ve heard raves (no pun intended) about whose sets I’m banking on being wow-ed by. They’ve already caught my attention online, and with the right crowd in attendance and the right dance-inducing set on the lineup, they could easily launch from a B-side cameo or a heavy buzz to a full-blown electronic epidemic.

Baths

Maybe I was just snoozing on this guy for a while, or maybe he likes to surf beneath the radar, or maybe it just took an Austin music festival to bring us together from opposite coasts. I first heard of Baths through working with YAK Films, who have featured a couple of his songs in their videos. I’ve seen the name elsewhere — on music festival lineups or opening for the Cold War Kids at Radio City Music Hall — other places than between the words “Bed” and “Beyond.” The music is mesmerizing, tangible and sometimes uneasy, but every track has the ability to make me feel something.

Gopheller Presents ”Party Opening” (BWU RADIO DEC 2010 – MIX 2) 192Kbps by DJ Olivier Gopheller

Born in 71, he started to mix when he was 16 years old (student party, weddings and so on…) using Technics and vinyls.
The 1st CD he bought was ‘The only way is up (from Yazz)’ in 88.

From 1988 until 1996 his style was oriented ‘Dance Floor’ the cd he most played in 89′ was this famous ‘Ride on Time from Black Box’ and can’t still get tired of it today.

From 1997 until 2002 he used to play many ‘Frech House’ artist like: Bob SInclar (remixing Cerrone), Dimitri from Paris, Daft Punk and many others influenced his style a bit as well as his djing skills.

In 2002 he went in Egypt for holidays and went to a Hed Kandi party. Since that day he ‘felt in love’ with the ‘Beach House’ style, especially because the same year he heard for the 1st time a set from Dj memê, who’s for him THE reference in this style of house music.

The groovy sound of the bass, the heat of the violins, the sound of the Bossa Nova piano keys, and of course the wonderful diva’s voices are all he needs to get on fire and makes you dancing. Gopheller’s personal style is Funky-Disco-Soul, and use to play mainly the following styles for live sets:
- Vocal House
- Soulful House
- Disco House
- Funky House
- Beach House
- Latino House

But loves also to play:
- Progressive House
- Tribal House
- D & B
- Dub House Club

- Dj Memê
- Joey Negro
- Dimitri From Paris
