Snapshot: Relive SXSW With Treble
Travel alongside our Milk.xyz contributors with Snapshot, our new photo diary series. This week, we head down south with the Treble team to get an inside look at their 2019 SXSW festivities.
Treble, NYC’s underground music community, launched its largest SXSW activation to-date last week, boasting a full roster of over 50 artists across three houses, known as #TheTrebleVillage. The week kicked off with a sold-out show for the official Treble Tuesdays showcase held at the famed Empire Garage on March 12, with drinks courtesy of Jagermeister. Performances included Flipp Dinero, IDK, Kelvyn Colt, Taylor Bennett, Bayli, Olah Bliss, Riz La Vie, Bianca Shaw, and more. Presented by Young Hero and Tay Bennett Ent, the event also featured Treble’s iconic Beat Battle, powered by Splice, with judges Supah Mario (Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, 2 Chainz), Anthony Kilhoffer (Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Rick Ross), and Kashaka (A$AP Ferg, Topaz Jones). Brooklyn-based producer Simen Sez came out on top, landing him the opportunity to collaborate with Supah Mario, IDK, and Taylor Bennett at the Treble Village mixer held on 3/13, and powered by Splice, Amuse, and Young Hero. The track produced from the session will be released via Amuse, next month. Treble ended its week with its House Party on 3/14, hosted at the Tangerine House and featuring spontaneous jams with the Treble Village talent: Moe Moks, Bayli, THOMAS, Nana B Cool, and more, with an impromptu cypher lived streamed by Noisey.
SXSW 2019 was just the first stop for Treble since the announcement of its new digital platform, launching this month, and brought to life with the Treble Village. The team will be hosting its official State of the Union showcase on March 26 at Elsewhere in Brooklyn, and will launch the Chicago and Berlin chapters of Treble Tuesdays in April.
