|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!
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!
