I’ve uploaded the recording of my set at The Rex Club in Paris on April 1st, 2016. It was an incredible “UR night” with Waajeed, Timeline and Mark Flash all doing amazing sets. It was a pleasure and a privilege to have such a great experience at one of the world’s best night clubs. The set is now available for listening on Mixcloud. Track listing is on Mixcloud and below. Big thanks to P.U.R.E and Manu Casana for hosting us in France and to Cornelius Harris of UR for taking care of business as usual.

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.

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!

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.
“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 firstname.lastname@example.org” – Dan “Dex” Caballero aka Nomadico (Original dublab DJ & Underground Resistance member)
