Monstercat’s “Uncaged Tour” was a step in the right direction for the URL label. For a community created and grown on the interwebs, moving into the live show realm is the obvious next step.
It wasn’t the first time we’ve seen Monstercat artists out and about, though – Pegboard Nerds, Aero Chord, Haywyre, and more are avid tourers. However, there has always been a little something missing. For the most part, only around two or three Monstercat artists were ever on the same lineup. This year at SXSW is looking to change that.
The Monstercat Showcase at SXSW will feature not two, not three, not four … BUT FIVE Monstercat artists. On stage for the first time ever, together, will be Haywyre, Aero Chord, Grabbitz, Razihel & Au5. This is sure to be one of the top shows of the week in Austin and you would be absolutely foolish not to drop by if you’re going to be there.
For those of you who will not be Austin…
Monstercat has got something special for you, too. Teaming up with the incredible startup Splice, the platform for music creation, collaboration and sharing, Monstercat will host a live stream of Monstercat artists collaborating on a track.
Haywyre’s WIP (Work In Progress) will kick things off and with Splice’s cutting edge platform will be picked up by Aero Chord to add his touches to the track; all of this will be streamed live on live.monstercat.com. Fans will be able to watch minute by minute and get an inside look at the production process in Ableton Live as well as download the WIP to create their very own versions.
This event showcases the tools available for artists through Splice, which eliminate the dreadful hurry-up-and-wait moments of working with fellow artists remotely, and give fans up-close access to the incredible creative ability of Monstercat’s roster. Be sure to tune in to live.monstercat.com 9:00 PM EST/ 8:00 PM CT to witness this incredible exhibition.
That’s right… very soon, you will hear a completed Haywyre x Aero Chord collab. I know, I’m shaking with excitement, too.
