Yaxteq is proud to announce the digital release of the Ritmos EP. Los Angeles via Honduras producer Roberto Espinosa has channeled years of experience as a DJ, promoter and music producer into this latest project. The Ritmos EP features the magic touch of Detroit keyboardist Jon Dixon on “Finding Who You Are”. The second track “Starseed” takes us on an abstract journey where polyrhythms and moody chords collide. “Words of Fire” finds the legendary Lee “Scratch” Perry contributing vocals to a primal body mover with it’s fusion of original dub riddims and style over a 4/4 floor filler. Finally, Yaxteq’s own Nomadico strips down “Words of Fire” for a retro-futuristic Dub Techno remix.
Yaxteq is also proud to welcome the visual talents of Alex “Isimo!” Schroeder to the label. His hyperrealistic illustration of Lee “Scratch” Perry perfectly visualizes the music found on the release.
The digital release is now available in the Yaxteq digital shop here!
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!!

This Saturday night April 14, 2012 I’ll be DJing along side one of my hometown heroes; the legendary DJ Barry Weaver!! I can honestly say I learned a lot listening to Barry DJ back in the SoCal Rave days of the 1990’s.
For proof of Barry’s range and skill check this classic mix from 1997 on Barry’s SoundCloud page:
