Our man with the photoshop plan,Â Talacha, has been the eye behind the visual identityÂ of Dutty Artz for a few years now (buy his T-Shirts here!). Not content to stick with one medium, Diego has always been lurking in the shadows behind the DJ booth, and unbeknownst to myself, picking up a thing or two from the audio-mixationÂ world along the way!
After playing a couple of sets at our Brunch GozÃ³n daytime party series, the world is now ready for the official recorded mixÂ debut of DJ Talacha!
Here are a few words about the mix from the man himself:
Growing up in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato the Tuesday market is something we always looked forward to. Affordable knockoff designer clothes, bootleg movies, junk piles sprinkled with treasures from a not-so-long-ago golden-era and most importantly the food stands. Tacos, huaraches, pambazos, aguas frescas, tepache and fresh fruit with chili powder and limÃ³n(my personal favorite being tacos de chorizo verde con cecina). The element that unifies this sensory overload is the music. Various stands play loud mixes of cumbia, reggaeton, hip-hop and anything that is on demand at the moment, however personally the magic came when songs merge and mix on their own creating a unique experience. By using traditional and contemporary cumbia(and at times neither), I was looking to recreate that experience in this mix.
We hope you enjoy, and keep a look out for more from DJ/designer Talacha here and on his website Talacha.net.
