Just waking up after a long night on the town and what a night! After a day of travel and meetings with the NUVO production crew I cruised around Austin and then found myself at AT&T’s Mobile Movement show featuring Reggie Watts, Sza, Machinedrum and Dj Shadow! The minute I saw these names on the bill I figured how impossible it might be to get in. Got in the badge line which circled around the block and within minutes I was in. That’s when that old SXSW badge magic began to kick in. Reggie Watts always blows me away with his comedic elements and soulful organic vocal made tunes. Top Dawg Entertainment’s latest signee Sza rocked the crowd with her melodic sounds while Machinedrum was impressive sonically! Dj Shadow, well, It’s DJ Shadow!!!

I first caught glimpse of Reggie Watts as part of Maktub. I opened for these guys way back in the early 00’s.  Check out his brilliant ability to remix and recreate our various ways of communication.  Reggie tackles comedy but incorporates music and beatboxing to create a “what am I watching cause I love it” kind of sensation.  Earlier this year I got to sit down with Reggie and talk about the 5 songs that have inspired him over the years as part of KCRW’s Guest Dj Project.  My highlight is when we both beatboxed and recreated Tears For FearsEverybody Wants To Rule The World“.  Listen to it here and check out Reggie’s amazing TED talk.
