This month’s installment of the Red Bull Sound Select Austin live music series happens tonight at The Parish. The folks from ScoreMore Shows have once again curated an eclectic “must-see” lineup headlined by Washington D.C.-based rapper and singer D’Anthony “GoldLink” Carlos. Wrestlers and Little Wolves round out the bill to make it the best $3 you will spend this month.
Goldlink is one of the hottest up-and-comers in hip-hop today. His appeal lies in his genre-blending, self-dubbed “future bounce” sound that is fluid, danceable and head nodding. Not long after releasing his critically-acclaimed mixtape, The God Complex, in 2014, he was honored as one of the elusive XXL Magazine Freshman 2015. He has toured with the likes of SBTRKT and won over multiple new fans at this year’s South by Southwest. If you missed him then or at JMBLYA, then tonight is your lucky break.
Houston-based electronic act Wrestlers, whom you may have known as Bagheera, are composed of producers Aidan Kennedy and David Elkin. Another hot up-and-comer themselves, their music blends old school disco with modern EDM you can sing along too. Their national breakout came in 2014 when their single “Say Anything,” a dance track featuring Twin Shadow and D’Angelo Lacy, was produced by Red Bull for a 7-inch Record Store Day split. That same year the duo hit the festival circuit with performances at Hangout, CounterPoint and Lollapalooza. While the duo are currently working on a new material for a proper release, you can check out more from Wrestlers here.
LA-based producers Samuel Jacob and Ronnie Watson comprise Little Wolves. Formed in 2010, the group has worked with Andre Anjos, the mastermind behind Remix Artist Collective (RAC) for their singles “Lost My Mind” and “Home.” Unlike the other performers tonight, Little Wolves bring a rock element to their electronic-based style. Listen to their newly released single “Alone” below.
Austin-based DJ Hella Yella will be spinning before and in-between sets to keep the party going.
