SXSW 2013: Guardant / The Del Toros / The Kamals / Josh Sallee

Just Joshin'. And you?


Music

Stephen Carradini
It only took Guardant 30 seconds to win me completely over to its team. The quintet’s hyperactive, quirky dance pop is simply irresistible.

aDD it up

In rapping about the positive, Oklahoma City’s aDDLib has cracked the equation for hip-hop success.


Music

Joshua Boydston
aDDLib hasn't starred in movies, and you probably won't find him in a production of Riverdance anytime soon, but that doesn't mean he's not a triple threat. A talented rapper, studio artist and graphic designer, aDDLib — the moniker of lifelong Oklahoma City resident Dewayne Butler — is quite the total package.

MilitantxMindz — #RIOT


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
It's odd that in this hyperpolitical cross-section of American history, the voices of socially conscious rappers à la Public Enemy or A Tribe Called Quest are being drowned out over the sound of poppin’ bottles, smackin’ booties and the jangle of diamond jewelry.

Breezy Burnz — Product of My Enlightenment


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City's own Breezy Burnz is tough to pin down, but that's half the fun of his latest mixtape, Product of My Enlightenment, a top-to-bottom solid effort that boasts a smattering of hip-hop complete with some of the catchiest hooks the 405 ever has seen.
