I just got back from Mexico City after spending nearly two weeks with some of the best DJ's and record collectors in the country! I am truly lucky, I was shown so much hospitality, friendship and fun. I was also lucky enough to be invited to DJ at three parties in the DF and be the guest on RADIO PAAX's show, BRIGADAS ANTIVICIO which airs tomorrow and will be archived online after (link is below). 

I DJ'ed alongside Carlos Rene and Elisse Locomotion for their wild 60's party, HIPSHAKERS! (seen below), got to join Psych A Go Go's Denepa Panky and OOBA GOOBA's Matt Watson behind the decks at La Chicha and was invited to DJ the party, OH YEAH w/ Moises Chez (of Chez Nobody Records) and BAM BAM & Ritzmonzon (of RADIO PAAX). I also got to check out some pretty stellar parties c/o Psych A Go Go, King Crab's Sound System and really get to see what Mexico City has to offer fans of 50's, 60's and 70's era's of music. There's almost always somewhere to listen to 45 rpm records and dance your ass off!

In addition to some great parties, I made time for lots of fun too... even if it meant impromtu record parties on a boat and at the park in Xochimilco! ;)

You can also tune in to RADIO PAAX 24/7 or to BRIGADAS ANTIVICIO w/ guest DJ Misty on Friday February 26 at 7pm EST via: the web or mobile (and the show will be archived on mixcloud after!)
