Carpinteria, California-based DJ Magento describes himself as a "funk enthusiast, soul lover, dubwise master, sampling freak, burger blogger, and taco quality control consultant," and this exclusive mix he curated for the XLR8R podcast is as much fun as his title. Heavy on soul, hip-hop, Latin, and tropical sounds, this hour-plus-long mix sees the man born Manny Roldan mashing up different styles of beats, pushing high-energy dancefloor numbers, and supposedly there's a sample from The Price is Right buried somewhere in the music.
In addition to producing, Roldan has held a seven-year residency at the First Friday Super Jam night in Portland and is known to cause ruckus on dancefloors worldwide. Check his releases on labels like Six Degrees, Thirsty Ear, Portland's BSI Records, and One Drop.
