APW is an evolution of events IHC has done at SXSW since 2006 along with partners Mad Decent (Carniville, Salvation Army Party) and Fool’s Gold (Past Yo Bedtime, a party in an abandoned Mall). In 2012 APW began at Emo’s East and Beauty Ballroom on the east side of Austin, where it was an unofficial event for 2 years. Last year in 2014, APW moved to downtown Austin at Empire Control Room & Garage and partnered with Heard, Embrace and Biz 3 to become an official SXSW event. 2015 re-teams that partnership and adds on Jukely to expand to 2 venues. Check out the recap video’s below.

Rico Love – They Don’t Know (DJ Sliink Remix)[SXSW 14 FREE DOWNLOAD]

DJSLIINKRMX

To those attending SXSW, the Jersey Club King DJ Sliink has released an exclusive remix of Rico Love’s They Don’t Know. This remix came out HOT, I love how it starts off with a soothing melody and shortly a few bars in, those massive heavy kick drums take over the drop. This is the beauty today’s club music, you truly get the best of both worlds. I caught Sliink at the Avalon last Friday, he by far had the most diverse set. From Trap, Hip-Hop, Jersey and House, he transitioned into tracks that acquired R&B breaks, lets be real here, there is nothing wrong with baby making music on a dj set… or is there ?
