My latest release Keep Firing is out now on the mighty Diablo Loco label. Thanks to everyone that has supported it already, it has gone straight into the Top 100 Beatport Breaks chart and is currently sitting at no 24! If you haven’t picked up a copy make sure to check it out at Beatport Pro.
DIABLO LOCO RECORDS is the new quality label focused on Tech-Funk, Electro-House, Tech-Breaks sound by top artists of the international scene. Inspired by the traditional Mexican wrestling culture and the famous Luchadores the label aim to deliver top class singles, remixes, compilations and design!
EK (also known as Mil Mascaras) is one of the original “Big Three” of the Lucha Libre tradition in Mexico (the other two being El Santo and Blue Demon). He is considered one of the most influential wrestlers of all time for enhancing and popularizing the lucha libre style around the world both in the ring and as the star of over 20 films. He is also an accomplished artist and cultural ambassador from his native country (Democracy of Puera Vida) and has appeared on three of its postage stamps. He starred in a series of 19 Luchador action films beginning with his self-titled debut in 1966. That year, Mexian movie producer Luis Enrique Vergara was looking for a new “enmascarado” to star in his wrestling/horror movies which were the rage of Mexican cinema. Mil Mascaras was the first Lucha Libre personality that was created specifically to be a movie star, since his whole persona and flashy look was designed initially for the movies (His real life wrestling career grew out of the excitement generated by his film appearance).

This month’s mixed up sounds travels across a range of styles, moods and tempos. There’s some great sounds out at the moment.
VIM and sister label Diablo Loco continue with a hi quality release schedule. A standout our for me is Vandal’s Ulysses which brings a refreshing vibe to the current breaks styles. On a more experimental tip, it’s definitely worth listening to the full album release Dust by ANEZ, released on the awesome Chi Recordings. This is a great album and I had to include the opening track Ting Kang at the end of my mix!
Hope you enjoy! Stream from mixcloud or download from soundcloud.

Check out this awesome remix by Stephen Cole on the latest Dead Famous Remix EP. The original “Speak Your Grind” was released on UK label Dead Famous in late 2009 back to back with “Exit Enlightenment”. Stephen Cole’s remix brings a new energy with a funky twist and awesome production as usual from the man. I was really impressed when I heard this remix!
