A little while back I enthusiastically endorsed the debut release by San Antonio artist Diego Bernal (back here). Well Exponential Records, the label that his album came out on is sharing a completely free SXSW sampler of Texas based producers for your listening pleasure. It's simply and appropriately titled Texas, and its seventeen tracks offer a window into the Texas electronic scene (not the place you'd normally associate with the genre, but this comp might prove otherwise). Diego shows up here along with an entire roster of diverse artists representing.
With a price tag of zero dollars and zero cents, this is an even better deal than the Prodigy album I told you about. Here are a couple of my favorite cuts, but most certainly head over and pull down the entire compilation. The first, from Rae Davis, is titled Denali and its got some smooth acid-jazz currents and features Ma Bell. Next up is DCMT from Stephen Orsak, which pushes out an ambient aura.
