Mixpak 019 is brought to you by Venezuelan producer and DJ, Pacheko. First catching our eye last year with his remix of Max Romeo for Senseless Records, Pacheko has been producing a string of bass-heavy records and remixes, from Kuduro to Venezuela's hottest genre: Changa Tuki. He also heads up Abstractorrecords, that houses the likes of Cardopusher, Nehuen, Pocz and more. In Pacheko's own words:
I wanted to do something good for heaphone listening but also to get people moving. It goes from 120bpm to 150 in less than an hour, and features some of the music I am feeling at the moment: Some new House from Omar S & Theo Parrish, some oldschool Acid House (Chilly T), and a lot of music from producers related to the Abstractor (my crew / blog / label) people such as: Nehuen (from Argentina), Cardopusher, Dj Yirvin, MPeach, Pocz (all from Venezuela) and myself. It's an original, new ¨Tropical Bass¨ sound that we are pushing together and I feel its growing and evolving nicely! So I then went the guarachero way for a good part of the mix, but only with tracks that I really really like such as Bok Bok's ¨Dance Report¨, an L-Vis 1990 remix and some Erick Rincón & Sheeqo Beat tracks. For the final part of the mix I took the Kuduro way and could´ve stayed there longer but the mix has to end at some point right? Anyways its a mix I really enjoyed recording, did it with Serato, 2 Technics 1200 and a mixer, it was lots of fun!. Hope you like it!
