Rodrigo Diaz Shows Off His New Juke Move.

Aside from Rodrigo Diaz's new project's penchant for intentional misspelling, there's not much to dislike about Ynfynyt Scroll and Diaz's newfound juke groove. Same goes for the increasingly strong underground electronic scene he's helping to foster at spots like Beauty Bar and, oddly enough, the Texas Theater.

Make no mistake, Diaz is not your typical electronic music producer. Ask him and he'll admit that he prefers the perspective gained from being a little bit on the outside and looking in. But, for all his troubles and seapunk obsessions, his music remains fairly accessible, in large part due to its inherent groove. And, yes, that's a good thing.

Even better? His scene really does seem to be growing. The Track Meet collective DJ and producer has found some worthwhile local live-setting collaborators of late in Shuttle and Killtron, and, together, they've been taking advantage of their collective abilities, building up an audience in a town that has historically shunned outsider electronic in favor of house and dubstep.

But maybe that's starting to change (emphasis on “maybe”). And, hey, if this is what change sounds like, we're on board with it.
