Premium DSP Qobuz is returning to South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin for the second annual ‘Qobuz Sessions at SXSW.’

The following was created in collaboration with Qobuz, a company DMN is proud to be partnering with.

This series of intimate live-to-record sessions at KMFA Studios in East Austin offers a promising class of rising indie and experimental artists performing stripped-down sets in front of small audiences. Each set will be recorded with state-of-the-art equipment and will be released exclusively on Qobuz as individual EPs in 24-bit Hi-Res studio quality.

This year’s ‘Qobuz Sessions at SXSW’ will feature London-based jazz-pop multi-instrumentalist Cosmo Pyke playing songs from his upcoming April EP, Low. Also featured are New York cosmic indie-folk artist Allegra Krieger; Sudanese-American, free jazz, krautrock, prog rock, electronica band Sinkane, led by multi-instrumentalist Ahmed Gallab; and UK-based electronic, classical, and jazz artist Maria Chiara Argirò.

The following year, Qobuz hosted its first in-person SXSW event with performances by Circuit des Yeux, Moor Mother, Claire Rousay, and Marina Herlop. This year marks the second ‘Qobuz Sessions at SXSW’ featuring rising artists with an exclusive EP of the recording appearing on its streaming service.
