The 2023 REVOLT House at SXSW in Austin, Texas was full of talented up-and-coming hip hop artists like Mother Nature and DJ FLWRSHRK. The two acts took home the biggest honors of the event when they won the open mic and “On Deck” DJ battle, respectively.

Mother Nature, a female Chicago and Houston-based duo, brought their unique old school vibes to the stage and performed their 2021 track “Momentz” for the open mic competition and they ended up winning against a few other artists looking to be the next big thing. The showcase was judged by music executives like REVOLT’s Head of Music Programming Cena Zarin, Trey White from iHeartRadio, and Sweetness Ybern from Vydia.

“WE ARE THE FUTURE. SXSW was nothing short of amazing,” they said of their experience on Instagram. “Thankful, thankful, thankful. not only were we surrounded by tribe, by we hit SEVERAL stages and gained hella fans. huge s/o to @gimajormoves, @onlevibez, @columbiachi, @sulishabazz + @revolttv for allowing us to bless y’all spaces.
