SXSW Stories: Steelo Foreign
Man, you know, I’m from Austin. This is a good time of the year to really get out here and network so you’ll find myself in places like this.
Yeah, you know, I’m an audio engineer and a producer. Audiomack hired me to come out here and run the studio for them.
This year, man, doing a track with Honorable C-Note. Being in the studio with him and being able to record a track for him was definitely a memorable moment.
Finding a way to bridge the unofficial and official showcases and building a relationship between curators and tastemakers that are doing stuff on their own and getting relationships with the actual festival and finding a way to bring the benefits of the festival to the benefits of the culture, you know what I’m saying, because right now there can be a little discourse at times, you know.
It’s kind of cliché but real recognize real. I just made genuine relationships earlier today that I’m confident that aren’t being PC. Everybody greets you, says hi, may dap you up, even if they met you for the first time. But at times you can find yourself building long lasting relationships with people aross the world through this shit. As much as it is a little PC at times, we cut through all the bullshit. I’m not really tripping.
My boy Billy Racks is going to be touring in LA soon doing a 3 show tour. Multiple executive producing on multiple projects with artists all across the country and within the industry. Traveling and pulling up to places and just building, man.
