I try my best to keep an eye on what my creative peers are doing, especially when they step outside of what they’re traditionally known for, and I always enjoy it when I see someone start to carve a second or third path for themselves.  Click-Clack has been talented since the day I met him, but over the years I’ve gotten to see aspects of his personality shine that I respect deeply.  As a native Austinite like myself, I know that he cares deeply about the scene and how it’s both represented and presented to the public at large, and it’s brought the influencer vibes out of him in the form of strongly curated and frequently updated playlists, complete with customized artistic thumbnails.  For Austin Rap Current, the roster of Austin-based talent is deep and diverse, including a handful of folks who have received recent shine on this blog.  Check out the playlist, give it a follow, and keep an eye out for other playlists that Click-Clack curates.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ian Orth (of Margin WalkerLearning Secrets and Orthy) since we were both little kids.  I remember us always talking about how we’d both grow up to be musicians and artists, living our dreams and controlling our destinies as me leave our mark on the cultures that influenced us so deeply.  Now, what feels like a generation later, Ian and myself are both members of Austin‘s ever-thriving music scene, and in his case, he is definitely influencing the culture in very tangible ways.  Case in point, his work with Margin Walker has not only allowed him to book numerous bands in town, but it has afforded him the opportunity to showcase songs he loves via the Margin Walker Staff Mix Series on Spotify.  The link is connected to the image above, so click that baby pic and dive in to some wonderful sounds!
