Best of SXSW ’12

The music at South by Southwest begins this Wednesday. Although sadly none of us will be in Texas this week, we thought would it would still be interesting to sift through the colossal schedule and share some of the most exciting events going on (keep in mind a load will be available to steam live).

1. Shady Records:
Ultimate rap showcase: 50 Cent performing his debut and undoubtedly most accomplished album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ album supported by some of the most notable breakthrough rappers including Big K.R.I.T. and Action Bronson.

2. Young Turks
One of our favourite UK labels presents one of its most successful signings, producer SBTRKT. He teams up with New York rapper A$AP Rocky and what looks like a ‘best of UK DJs’ list: Jackmaster, Oneman, Machinedrum and Sinden.

3. Noisey
Vice’s music channel Noisey has put together a supreme lineup to celebrate its 1st year anniversary. Hopefully Chairlift’s live show will match their latest interactive video.

4. Warner Sound
Over three nights Warner Sound presents some of the most interesting artists of the moment including Theophilus London, XV and Stalley. All three showcases can be steamed live.

5. Warp Records
The debut of the collaboration between Hud Mo and Lunice. Set be be incredible.
