|I first became familiar with Xavier De Enciso back in my early L.A. rave daze. He was a regular at many events around Southern California. See photo below circa mid-1990’s L.A. Somehow we never met during that time.
I left L.A. in 2002 for Detroit to join the Submerge and Underground Resistance crew, then moved to NYC for quite a while, got married, etc. Fast forward to my return to Los Angeles in 2011 and I ended up at a Lovefix party DJing back to back with Esteban Adame. Lovefix was Xavier’s current project and it was a perfect fit for my more eclectic style. He’s been key to my re-introduction to Los Angeles, so ever since I’ve been keeping up with his events and music production.
|So it’s with a lot of pride and satisfaction that he’s released his Emotional Hunger EP on Yaxteq. Check out the release page linked below, read a bit more about Xavier, listen to this amazing EP and purchase the release if you’re feeling the vibe!
Nomadico aka DJ Dex will be on the virtual airwaves Tuesday May 21st at 9PM EST for Red Bull Radio’s Underground Resistance week! Listeners can expect a special DJ set that sonically connects Detroit and Los Angeles. Click the image below for more details over at Red Bull Radio.
Nomadico will also be working in some custom edits and remixes via his new Korg Electribe sampler. Check the Instagram video below.
Official Yaxteq announcement! The “Code Switcha” album is now being pressed at Archer Record Pressing in Detroit and is expected to start shipping worldwide in November.
If you haven’t already please have a listen via SoundCloud below. Once again huge thanks to our featured visual artists; Howard Davy for his design of the Nomadico mascot (yuru-chara) and Chaz Bojorquez for his amazing rendering of the “Nomadico” lettering in his iconic style.
DJ Dex aka Nomadico has written and produced 10 new unreleased tracks for this double LP “The Code Switcha”.
It features a range of tempos and sonic dynamics; from the slow burns of “RTD 60” and “909 Soto Street” to the full
on energy of “Machine Learning for Homeboy” and “HustLA”. There are also electro funk tracks like “Still Cruisin”,
“Radio 3031323” and “Backyard Trippin”. Meanwhile, the moods and textures of “Introversion”, “Innermission” and
“Staring Problem” are for deep listening. All of these are fused together by atmospheric pads, touches of acid and a
veteran DJ’s sense of rhythm and timing.
