North Texas synth-pop trio Felt & Fur create dark danceable energy with eurythmic emotional charge. Alizsha Pennington's pleading lyrics paired with her dramatic guitar riffs offer a solemn counter to the pulsing keyboard melodies, pounding percussion and warm analogue synths of Randall Minick and Jarrod Estes to collectively form the perfect symbiosis of chaos and ritual. In November 2018, Felt & Fur's sophomore album Held made its debut release on Triptych Records and was quickly heralded as 2018 "Album of the Year" in the local press. The album's single, "Pulling a Thread" made "Song of the Day" in Central Track, Dallas' premier culture guide and "Music Video of the Day" in White Light White Heat. Driven by organic spacious keyboards, reverb-laden static, and hissing drones that grow to literally charge the air, Held features hypnotic, driving rhythms, spatial chord progressions and deep, repetitive, trance-inducing scapes of sound. Layered with rich tones, dynamic volume and enormous emotional range, Pennington's agonizing and dramatic vocals serve as guide through the labyrinth of penetrating, enduring synth pulsations generated by Minick and Estes.

Bragglights is the electronic project of Austin producer Jenna Herrington. Her cocktail of sound is inspired by Deep House, Industrial & Techno.

Ten Pixels Tall is a chiptune artist making moves with Gameboys and a PSP with visuals stolen from youtube videos.

The Radio Broadcast is a Houston synthpop duo comprised of Michael and Kristin Heilman. As the house lights go from dim to dark the stage starts to glow and smoke rises. The faint sounds of blips and bleeps grow louder as they sync with the rhythm of a kick and high, met with a clap. A cymbal crashes and a bass beat smashes, the stage light flashes. Vocals drop, swept up into a warm synth line. Its an electro dance party brought to you by The Radio Broadcast.
