Huge thanks to Claude Young and the crew of serious musicians, producers and artists that attended Yaxteq Lab 001. After the initial social hour and dinner, Claude went deep into his creative process. There was discussion on improving the creative work flow, essential software plugins, integrating hardware and software, thinking ‘outside’ the grid and so much more. The second half of the lab was all hands on as Claude helped one of the crew improve the mix of a current project. The lab ended up running an extra hour as there was just so much to be covered. We can’t wait for Yaxteq Lab 002. Check out the photos courtesy of Naheedence Photographic! http://www.naheedence.com
Yaxteq is proud to work with The Black Lodge to bring Claude Young back to Los Angeles on Saturday March 5th, 2016!
Claude will perform an extended 3 hour DJ set at The Hyperion Tavern in Los Angeles for The Black Lodge on Saturday night March 5th, 2016. Check XLR8R and Resident Advisor for all the details.
Earlier that evening Yaxteq will host the first ever “Yaxteq Lab”. The Yaxteq Lab will be a pop-up audio clinic with Claude a few miles from Downtown L.A. Registration is required and only 15 total seats are available. Registration and more information is available here on the Yaxteq site. https://yaxteq.com/product/yaxteq-lab-001

A wild night and great times were had this past Saturday at Hyperion Tavern in Los Angeles. The Black Lodge is a monthly party at The Hyperion Tavern with a mix of local and out of town guests. Vikas and Jason are doing a great job creating an intimate yet rowdy party. The music is varied from Techno bangers to moodier House and vocal cuts. Rumor has it the sets were recorded so I’ll post a recording up here as soon as possible. In other news I’m working on adding e-commerce features to this site. So that means soon you’ll be able to order various DJ Dex and Nomadico vinyl releases directly from my studio here in Los Angeles. I’ve got plans for t-shirts, stickers and other goodies too. Finally there will of course be the option to buy tunes digitally in uncompressed .wav format.
Truly looking forward to returning to NYC this weekend! I’ll be working once again with the ALLGOLD collective led by Kevin Beasley. Myself and Heiroglyphic Being will be dropping a ton of bizarre modern electronic music aka Techno in Long Island City for “Spring Cleaning” at the PS1 Print Shop.

I’m proud to announce that the vinyl test pressings for Yaxteq 001 have been approved. Submerge in Detroit will be the first and exclusive source for white label pre-release copies. These will be available Memorial Day weekend. The full release for vinyl and digital is scheduled for early summer.

I’m pleased to share with you the DJ set from December 14, 2014 at MOMA PS1. Just have a look at the track list to understand why I call it the “UR 101” mix. I’d have to record a much longer mix to get EVERYTHING in there, but this is a good snapshot and it went down well at “ALLGOLD presents: Underground; an indefinite community?”.

Happy 2015 friends. I’m proud to announce the beginning of my new project: Yaxteq. The Yaxteq sound will be the foundation and theme for various experiments all under the Yaxteq concept. Yaxche x Techno = Yaxteq. The first release will be available on vinyl exclusively from Submerge in Detroit for the first few months of 2015. Worldwide distribution will follow shortly via both vinyl and digital outlets.
The video preview features footage from Los Angeles and Detroit. Both cities have profoundly shaped my creativity and view of this crazy world. It was created by the talented Naheedence. Please check out more of her work at naheedence.com
Thank you for listening and watching Yaxteq!!

Check out my latest music chart at Juno Download. I’ve included my remix for Gavrom on the UK’s Bullet:Dodge Recordings. “Chordilias” Nomadico Remix was released Monday December 15th, 2014. The remix sets the theme for the chart with moody, ethereal soundscapes and brooding beats. Enjoy and here’s to the Winter Solstice.
