As the sun begins to recede over the Brooklyn Bridge and temperatures plummet on a late November evening, I make my way to the grand opening of Rough Trade, Williamsburg’s newest record shop—the largest in New York City. Inside, I find Hector sifting through the endless rows of albums with N.W.A’s Straight Outta Compton already in hand. Towering over my short stature, Desolat’s rising star greets me with a warm smile and firm handshake. The location is almost too perfect—we both agree there couldn’t be a better place to discuss all things music. Almost immediately, Hector vibrantly guides me through his life history, from his native Mexico and his stint handing out flyers in Ibiza to eventually gracing some of the music industry’s premier stages around the globe. Genuine, effervescent and unassumingly debonair, Hector both delighted and inspired us during our hour-long chat. This week, NYC fans can catch Hector at Pacha on Saturday, November 30 as part of his ongoing HecTour. Guestlist FREE before midnight here, advanced tickets available here.

As he tells inthemix, Italian techno star Joseph Capriati is enjoying “the best year of my life and career so far”. He’s wrapped up a successful series of appearances in Ibiza alongside Marco Carola at his Music On residency at Amnesia, as well as performing regularly alongside Swedish titan Adam Beyer at his Drumcode parties around the world. His new album, Self Portrait, is also released this week on Beyer’s hallowed label.

This Thanksgiving Eve, Capriati is locked for a party that he told inthemix is his most anticipated yet for the whole of 2013. He’ll be playing a rare gig at Pacha in New York City alongside enduring icon Danny Tenaglia. The two DJs struck up a strong friendship a year ago, and they’ll be putting it to work behind the decks at Pacha where they’ll both be performing ‘all night long’, DJing alongside each other as well as back-to-back.

An Interview with MURK

Posted by on February 27, 2012 at 1:11 pm


Via Defected

Together, Oscar Gaetan and long-time friend and production partner Ralph Falcon form Murk, one of the most celebrated and accomplished production outfits ever to grace house music. With infrequent output and fastidious attention to detail, a Murk record is a rare thing, but this year under the guise of Intruder they delivered one of the year’s most unequivocal dancefloor anthems in ‘Amame’.
