Dubspot @ Official SXSW 2011 | Massive Electronic Music & ‘DJ Invasion’!

The Dubspot team is excited for our journey to Austin, Texas this month for the annual SXSW 2011 festival which launches on March 11. For over 25 years South By Southwest (SXSW) has become the go-to event for creative spirited people from around the world with a conference that combines interactive technology, film and music into a 10 day mind-meld of fantastic ideas. The event has always had a heavy emphasis on music (it’s in Austin, go figure) but this year we see more electronic and experimental musicians on the lineup than ever before. Furthermore they have announced a DJ Invasion at the Gear Alley Garage sponsored by Ableton and Serato . Dubspot will be joining this movement with artists performing as well as special events, workshops and parties for you to check out.

This year we are celebrating the launch of Dubspot Online at the Music Trade Show in Gear Alley, on March 17, 18, and 19, with exclusive live DJ sets and performances on March 17th Dubspot Instructor/Austin-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Martín Perna (Ocote Soul Sounds and Antibalas) and on March 19th Dubspot Instructors and DJs Thavius Beck, Matt Shadetek, Shiftee, DJ ObaH, and Ancient Astronauts! Check full details below, plus exclusive Dubspot mixes from the DJs!

DUBSPOT AUSTIN: Ableton Live Session w/ Ocote Soul SoundsMartín Perna & Friends
“Folktronic Funklore” is a word producer/multi-instrumentalist & Austin resident Martin Perna (Dubspot, Antibalas) uses to describe the music of Ocote Soul Sounds. No piece of musical software helps achieve this aesthetic more than Ableton Live. This session will feature brief technical explanations & live musical collaborations between Martín Perna and members of Ocote in collaboration with Thavius Beck, Pat Cupo, and ESL label mates Ancient Astronauts.
