I came across this very good mix and thought I should share it, it’s over a year old but who cares, it has some great techno, progressive tracks, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I think you would too:


WOW!Already a new year! and I just noticed I haven’t posted anything in a long while! Please excuse my lack of posting on this blog (I usually post on twitter and facebook) but one new year resolution is to use exterior platforms less and less and to bring my thoughts and experiences to this blog so you can get it straight from the source (me 😉

Alright, two things I have to post before I start posting new stuff last year ended up in a very positive note. I was surrounded by very good friends (who are more like family now) and I felt really good and thankful and that’s why I put together a mix with all the classic porro and cumbia tunes We listen to in the xmas time in Colombia. Here it is:

I also released a new track called ‘Melo Komo’ which is part of the now traditional end of the year compilation of Etoro Records (my label) alongside tracks by Sonido Berzerk ft Mottake, El Traste and Oaklei. Have a listen:

The compilation is available on: itunes, juno, beatport and many more digital music stores.

The video for Melo Komo is coming soon! so keep an eye for it! It’ll be uploaded to the Etoro Records youtube channel.

Let’s this year be an Amazing one for all of you, with loads of music and exciting things and projects.
Big Love!
