Top Austin Electronica for SXSW

10. Ssleeperhold
Blending classical music samples with dark industrial beats, Ssleeperhold is a one-man act that achieves an intense audio sound and has the ability to build tension in his beats and allay it just as fast. It sounds as if the Chemical Brothers, Crystal Castles, and Kraftwerk were fused into one man who can only express himself through a playground of synths, drum machines, and mixers. Ssleeperhold has shared bills with Xander Harris, Missions, SURVIVE, and Silent Diane, making him another vital part of the Austin vessel of dark electronica artists that will be on display at SXSW.
