2011 live DJ set at L.A.’s “Bottom Floor”

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.

Enjoy!

Interview with Juan Atkins from January, 2000 now on Dublab.com

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.

http://dublab.com/juan-atkins-live-dublab-dj-set-interview-with-dan-dex-caballero-01-21-00/

“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 cornelius@alteregomgt.com” – Dan “Dex” Caballero aka Nomadico (Original dublab DJ & Underground Resistance member)
