Rodrigo Díaz, better known on the finest dance floors as Ynfynyt Scroll, makes music that will leave you in nothing but a puddle of sweat. Ever since bursting onto the scene, Díaz has given us mixtapes full of irresistible mashups, remixes, and original tracks, featuring artists both popular and obscure, urban and pop, and Latino and international. Through his Track Meet label, he has kept the club fresh and inspired, dealing danceable club tracks with a political edge.
Background: Hails from Dallas, but has since relocated to Brooklyn.
Sounds like: The only place where Avril Lavigne, Popcaan, Paul Marmota, Plan B, and The Weeknd can get together and get lit. Dembow beats meet pop vocal samples, often aided by heady electronics. Díaz’s selections range from surefire bangers to the stuff that will make warehouse parties unforgettable.
Why you should see his showcase: The man knows what a party needs, and will surely deliver some of the sweatiest and more ecstatic moments of SXSW. From the raunchiest reggaeton samples to hazy atmospherics and melodic ballads, Ynfynyt Scroll will guarantee a turn up unlike anything else SXSW has to offer.
