Fans of Electro-Dance Music (EDM) have had few but increasing choices to see electronic dance music in Austin as of late. There is, however, a small but growing community in the “Live Music Capital”. On August 6th, local promoters have organized Summer Vibes featuring seven different DJs from Austin, Fort Worth and Dallas at Karma Lounge. While Examiner has not covered an EDM event since the Project Moonlight, “Full Moon Party” on the Lamar Blvd pedestrian bridge, this one shows promise. Unlike most EDM events in Austin which are usually located outside of town (eg. Future Fest, et al ) Summer Vibes will be located at a downtown Austin venue.
Point your browser to do512.com to hear and see videos from all the performers and “like” the event to let your friends know about it. Examiner has been listening to bastchaak, which is duo, Eric Moore and Rhegan Wallace of Fort Worth. The pair know how to stich together a nice track.
The DJs (click links to hear Soundcloud tracks):
Wes Walz (Houston)
Luis Gonzalez (Dallas)
Ryan Watts (Austin)
DJ Siako (Austin)
Myster E (Austin)
Bastchaak (Fort Worth)
There will be two rooms of music at Karma Lounge at the inaugural event. Tickets are $5 in advance ($10 at the door) and can be purchased here.
