Esteban Adame aka Frequencia drops the track list for an intergalactic backyard party with the Chicano Boombox EP. Esteban’s music career started as a DJ in L.A.’s East Side backyard party scene, he then stepped up his musical game by collecting gear and studying the piano. His evolution into a professional musician led him to gigs around L.A.’s jazz and salsa scenes. But he never lost his love for DJ culture and electronic music and that led him to join Mad Mike’s Galaxy 2 Galaxy band through his mutual friendships with UR’s Santiago Salazar and Yaxteq’s own DJ Dex. He’s released music on esteemed labels such as Underground Quality, Dolly, Mister Saturday Night, EPM, Jealous God and more. He also collaborates with DJ Dex as El Coyote.
“Rush The Floor” makes you want to do just that with its hypnotic lead synth and a breakdown that will leave the dancefloor wanting more. “Deep Function” flexes musical chops via soulful chords and a perfectly timed solo all riding over a thumping house beat. “Still Here” recalls classic Detroit Techno methodology as a reminder to keep the inspiration flowing. The EP is rounded out with “The Promise” a driving yet euphoric track perfect for watching the sunrise after a long night.
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!
“The Code Switcha” album will be available via all digital platforms including Beatport, Spotify, Apple Music, What People Play and more beginning Friday September 13th, 2019.
As part of this debut we’ve produced a 60 second digital promo for the track “HustLA”. It’s the most aggressive track off the album. The track with the most “UR” influence. So it was appropriate to provide some political imagery from our current times. Check the video below. Big thanks to Naheedence Photographic for the amazing production: https://naheedence.com

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.
