I’ve started recording video of my practice sessions. This past weekend I spent a couple of hours with the UR and Red Planet catalog. Here’s about 25 minutes from that session. It features all Electro-Techno-Funk tracks from Red Planet, UR, Timeline and Nomadico.
My new release on Undergrond Resistance is now shipping to stores worldwide! Big thanks as always to the Submerge and UR crew; Bridgette, James, Raphael, Marc, Waajeed and of course Mike. You can order the 12″ vinyl from various shops online including Submerge.com, UndergroundGallery.jp, Warp Record’s Bleep.com, WordandSound.de and more coming soon!

This Sunday August 25th, I’ll be DJing at “Burn The Elastic” just outside of Downtown L.A. at Vista Hermosa Natural Park. I’ll be opening for the one and only DJ Steve Loria. Before joining Underground Resistance, before learning anything about an MPC or getting my head around chord inversions, I learned about the craft of DJing from Steve Loria. So, yes, it’s an honor to play with the “West Coast Legend”. He’s been known for playing 8 hour sets and dropping everything from deep vocal house tracks to dark tribal stompers and funky disco cut ups. He’s the first person I ever heard play “Electric Shock” by Dan Bell. His crates are DEEEEP! Check out part of a set of his on Soundcloud at the bottom of this post!!
The park is on First Street west of the 110 (Harbor Freeway) between Beaudry and Glendale Blvd. If you’re in L.A. please stop by and say wassup!
LOVEFIX and The Ninth Gate to Techno present:

Underground Resistance has published a preview of “Yaxteq” on the official Youtube and Facebook pages. I’ve also posted the audio to my Soundcloud page. All feedback is much appreciated!!
The vinyl release should be hitting the shops by end of summer!
Apologies for my slacking on posting to my own blog the past couple of months! I’ve been busy in the studio finishing music for my next Underground Resistance release. Catalog number UR-091, the “Yaxteq EP”, is now being mastered and will be released by the end of this summer!! In the meantime enjoy this recently re-posted mix by my good friends at “Bottom Floor” Los Angeles. It’s a 2 hour set of deeper Techno and House music, including everything from Jeff Mills to Dennis Ferrer, DJ Qu, a Nina Simone remix, Francois Dubois and El Coyote! Mixed on 2 Technics 1200 turntables, 1 CDJ and a Pioneer mixer.
Roots matter and mine go back to El Salvador. So it’s a great pleasure to work with my neighbors from Honduras and release these remixes on True Type Tracks!
Roberto’s original “New Paradigm” takes inspiration from Detroit and Berlin with funky drum patterns and rolling analog synths. I built upon Roberto’s analog synths by adding chords, drum fills, atmospherics and some hi-tech soul for the Nomadico Remix. The Nomadico Dub mix is a funked up journey with a stripped back arrangement for 2013 dancefloors.
Huge thanks to both Roberto and True Type Tracks main man Xpansul!
The release is available today exclusively from Beatport.
Check out dublab.com for an interview I did with Juan Atkins back in January of 2000! Big thanks to www.dublab.com for retrieving this recording from their archives.
“Listening back to this interview 13 years later, I can hear in my own voice how hard I’m trying to keep my cool and not gush over the fact that I’m meeting “Magic” Juan Atkins, the Godfather of Detroit Techno, the Originator! My favorite part is his description of driving in the dark to find his own sound. It’s actually one of the statements that stuck with me over the years. If you’re not searching for the unknown within the realm of what is supposed to be experimental music, then what is the real point? Thanks Juan!
This interview was recorded months before the first Detroit Electronic Music Festival, a full 2 years before I would move to Detroit and join Underground Resistance and nearly 9 years before I would be the opening DJ for Juan at a gig in London in November 2008. As for the DJ set, it’s got what you should expect; Kraftwerk, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Juan’s own productions, a Carl Craig remix, Robert Hood, some UK Techno and cut-up disco house tracks. It’s a multi-dimensional, diverse dancefloor set. I wish I had the complete tracklisting!
These days Juan is actively touring as Model 500 live with Underground Resistance members Mad Mike Banks, DJ Skurge and Mark Taylor forming his band. An intense show that covers early Cybotron, the Metroplex catalog and brand new tunes recently released on R&S Records. For booking Juan Atkins please contact email@example.com” – Dan “Dex” Caballero aka Nomadico (Original dublab DJ & Underground Resistance member)
