With the days ticking away its about time to get your plans settled for the take over of Austin, TX for this years annual South by Southwest Music Festival//Conference. Now many of you may know right and well that SXSW is the premiere showcase for emerging talent but some of you still might be a page behind. Around this time every year the media industry swoops down on Austin for a week long barrage of the freshest talent in more than just the realm of music. You can spice your time up down there and catch everything from an array of speakrs, comedians, films, and more that are also debuted during their time at SXSW. If this still all sounds a little daunting (which I’m sure it does) then check out SXSW’s first timer’s guide to clear the haze.

SXSW First Timer’s Guide

Though we won’t be able to make the trip down to Texas ourselves this year we are still getting a little hand in on the chaos. If you’re getting down there by March 11th then you have got to swoop a ticket to the Bassick Elements showcase featuring some of our favorite producers in the game right now. The fam over at MusicYouNeed, Level 4 PR, and Dubstep.NET are the main instigators behind this 12 hour showcase that is sure to set a great tone for the rest of your time in Austin. To give you a better idea of what to expect from each of these artists if they happen to come across as unfamiliar,  Nemo Junglist stitched up this fresh mix that features some flavors from a good handful of them.
