Academik Records SXSW 2012 Event

On March 17, 2012, from 3pm-2am, Academik Records presents its second annual SXSW event, at Lanai Rooftop Lounge in Austin, Texas. Overlooking the action - at the corner of 5th and Congress, in the heart of the downtown club district - the Academik event will include performances from both emerging and established electronic artists.

The spotlight of the event will be the worldwide debut of legendary electronica/progressive act, Andain. This live performance will showcase Andain's classic hits, like "Beautiful Things" and "Summer Calling" - as well as their newest tracks, "Promises" and "Much Too Much".

In addition to the debut of Andain, the party will include DJ sets from Francis Prève, Jan van Lier, The Chaotic Good, and SecretPandaSociety - covering a broad range of EDM genres, from tech house to breaks.

Throughout the event, Academik's sponsors (listed below) will be giving away the latest electronic music production tools and software, including free copies of Ableton Live, Dave Smith Instruments' fully analog Mopho keyboard, Propellerhead Balance with Reason Essentials, as well as products from KorgiZotopeCreate Digital Music, and Bleeplabs.

White-hot EDM blog, LessThan3 - and the timeless and essential Keyboard Magazine - will also be co-sponsoring the event, bringing great vibes and some nifty giveaways as well.
