A wild night and great times were had this past Saturday at Hyperion Tavern in Los Angeles. The Black Lodge is a monthly party at The Hyperion Tavern with a mix of local and out of town guests. Vikas and Jason are doing a great job creating an intimate yet rowdy party. The music is varied from Techno bangers to moodier House and vocal cuts. Rumor has it the sets were recorded so I’ll post a recording up here as soon as possible. In other news I’m working on adding e-commerce features to this site. So that means soon you’ll be able to order various DJ Dex and Nomadico vinyl releases directly from my studio here in Los Angeles. I’ve got plans for t-shirts, stickers and other goodies too. Finally there will of course be the option to buy tunes digitally in uncompressed .wav format.
Truly looking forward to returning to NYC this weekend! I’ll be working once again with the ALLGOLD collective led by Kevin Beasley. Myself and Heiroglyphic Being will be dropping a ton of bizarre modern electronic music aka Techno in Long Island City for “Spring Cleaning” at the PS1 Print Shop.

Happy 2015 friends. I’m proud to announce the beginning of my new project: Yaxteq. The Yaxteq sound will be the foundation and theme for various experiments all under the Yaxteq concept. Yaxche x Techno = Yaxteq. The first release will be available on vinyl exclusively from Submerge in Detroit for the first few months of 2015. Worldwide distribution will follow shortly via both vinyl and digital outlets.
The video preview features footage from Los Angeles and Detroit. Both cities have profoundly shaped my creativity and view of this crazy world. It was created by the talented Naheedence. Please check out more of her work at naheedence.com
Thank you for listening and watching Yaxteq!!
