DJ: Scratchface DJ
MIXTAPE: Club Sessions
We sometimes make the mistake of assuming that just because the DJ is Latino, he’ll be spinning Latin music, or add a Latin twist to it. This is definitely not the case for Scratchface who started spinning electro and techno at the early age of 15 back in Mexico City. After moving to the Bay Area, California, a couple years later, he started building a name for himself in the local electro scene and almost now he has quite a following amongst the younger crowd, composed mostly of Mexican and Latino immigrants who rather jump to some hard thumping 130BPM beats than dancing cumbia.
This one is a brand new mixtape he just uploaded to the net that resembles very much his energetic club sets and is presented in a radio/podcast format with a spoken intro and outro by the DJ himself. There’s some Latin house there in the middle, but other than that and his accent, there’s almost no other explicit sign of him being Mexican in his selection.
