London, United Kingdom
In Mexico City I co-founded the Alcachofa Sound Arts Collective and the Parador Análogo Sound System. I created sound installations based on vinyl records & magnetic tapes, and organised, curated and promoted independent music festivals and underground club nights.
I was behind now-legendary nights such as Igloo (El Marro, Salón México) Selecta' and Profunda (Parador Análogo, La Perla) and Indietronic Melancholics (Non Solo Jazz) amongst many others. I was a musical adviser for the Mexico City Arts Festival, which also co-organised the Mexico City Love Parade amongst other major events.
Between 2006 and 2012 I did several Sofa Sessions & Sonido Chipotle nights in London, where I've DJed old-school Latin (Cuban son; bugalú, cumbia, New York salsa), jazz, funk, dub, rare groove & deep house in venues including Shunt, Notting Hill Arts Club, Salmon & Compass, Sevilla Mía, Camino, Passing Clouds & various gastropubs across the capital.
I currently just play records at home.
