Video & Photos: Okayfuture x Serato at #OKAYHOUSE SXSW 2015

Okayfuture and the good people at Serato made Texas history this year, hosting not one, but two exclusive events, and along with Okayplayer, supporting the globally esteemed Soulection label’s official showcase, during our annual takeover of the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin.  Check out the photos above and watch our video recap below!

Thursday March 19th saw Okayfuture’s official SXSW showcase, powered by Serato, the world-leader in DJ software, at the OKAYHOUSE featuring a stacked line-up of future-minded artists.  Athletixx member Kittens (with her whole squad in tow) opened up our show, then D.C. heavy hitter ENFERNO (a.k.a. one half of E.A.S.Y.) demonstrated an unmatched mastery of what we like to call “performance DJing.” After that, we heard dancefloor-incendiary sets from NYC’s powerhouse DJ/producers Brenmar and eSenTRIK (a.k.a. one half of TWRK).  The night was headlined by none other than big-time, beloved in both hip-hop and dance circles, producer Salva.  And finally, the exalted kween of Jersey Club, UNiiQU3 shut the stage down with her signature body-shaking style. Watch our video recap of the exhilarating night here.

Friday March 20th, the OKAYHOUSE played host to the mighty Soulection massive who made Austin the second stop on their first ever national tour. It’s difficult to avoid words such as “vibes” and “lit” when describing the Soulection experience. The sense of unity between the crew and the crowd of fans is palpable. Abjo got the party started, passing the baton to IAMNOBODI who just arrived from Berlin to the US for his first time. Welcome to Texas, bro! The party featured sets by UK emcee Jay Prince and the DMV’s own, Goldlink. Joe Kay, Esta, and Andrew Power x The Whooligan brought it home. If only the night would never end. Soulection Renaissance is the movement.
