To celebrate the German-Mexican year, a series of techno events kicked-off with Djs from the Berlin club ://about blank last weekend in Mexico City.
Last Saturday I had the opportunity to go and see what a group of people are doing down in México for the German-Mexican year 2016.
Goethe-Institut Mexiko in collaboration with Rockets Musik and ENSAMBLE are working on a series of events that will offer the most relevant conversations about electronic music and its role in cultural exchange. But what does that tell me about the Mexican night life scene?
I arrived and Daniel Castrejón (Selector/Umor Rex Records) was playing for around 200 people. The venue was as dark as the music. People started drinking and dancing, accompanied by monochromatic visuals by Pulso Transmisor/ of Malamigo.
The club was under an overpass in Mexico City. A perfect venue for an underground techno night. Time moved slow to the rhythm of the vinyls, followed by the versatility of Practice’s live act. The performance took us to the dance floor, accelerating our heart beats, creating the perfect warm up for what was coming.
