I spent last week in Austin for SXSW 2017 and it was awesome! I've been attending SXSW for about 5 years now but this was my second year as an official artist and it was definitely one for the books. I got to DJ for the Scope Expo's "ScopeATX" official showcase on Thursday which featured some dope artists like Chaz French, Jay IDK, JID, and Tunji Ige. This is my third year DJing for Scope and it's always a great time. I also got to attend some awesome panels which really taught me a lot about the music business and even got to check out one that featured some of Prince's original band mates which was pretty cool. Another great part about SXSW is getting to catch up with my music friends from around the country who come down to Austin for the week. We had some good food and great times catching up and seeing what's new. I met some new friends along the way as well, which is always a plus! We ended the week on Saturday night with our first ever "Lip Smack SXSW" event at the Nook where we brought together 9 female DJ's from around the country to spin together. This was definitely one of the coolest events I have ever been a part of. It was so great to meet these girls and also to see how many other talented female DJ's there are out there. Look out for more Lip Smack events in the future, in addition to our monthly at Fox Hollow every last Saturday. Overall SXSW was a success, and I can't wait to go back next year.
