We love empanadas, probably just as much as electronic music. That's it. Plain and simple. So, why not share our love of music with you?
We know it's been awhile. We apologize! But Papi's Podcast is back. This month we feature a favorite mix of ours from last year from Miami-based Dominican born DJ -- BAEZ -- or Jason Baez. His deep house grooves opening up for Damian Lazarus at Mansion in Miami make you wanna get up and move and get down and dirty... all at the same time! Well done, BAEZ. Well done.
Beki is a beautiful and spunky native of New York, and a personal friend of Papi's Empanadas. A creative spirit who has been especially inspired to express herself through music as of late, we are so happy and proud to feature her mix this month! Crisp and clean funky sounds that make you want to instantly get up and groove is the best way to describe this mix... or "a one-way ticket to groove-town" as Beki would say.
This month we've chosen to get a bit deeper in sounds, and present a mix by San Francisco-based, Atish. It's a very emotional and melodic piece, and his own words really are the only appropriate way to describe it: "This mix matches the ebbs and flows of a river...perhaps a bit bi-polar in its feeling from dark to bright and dark again. I'll admit, at first, I cringed listening through feeling shifts in the mix, especially near the end...but upon reflection, I kept it as is and found myself satisfied...these changes in feelings are human. We are all chaotic, unpredictable, emotional beings to varying degrees...a static being is dead and it's impossible to step in the same river twice...so I'll just stand back and let the music flow as is." Well said, Atish. Papi's Empanadas supports you!
Just because it's officially spring time and yesterday was the Persian New Year (eide hamegi mobarak) we're putting up an extra mix this month. The Sacbe (The Heart of The Jungle) Party from this years BPM Festival in Mexico is still being spoken of as one of the events of the year. In celebration and in remembering this magical event, No.19 Music's Jonny White and Visionquest's Shaun Reeves have put together a mix reminiscent of their set at Sacbe which was one of the highlights of this year's trip to Mexico for many.

This month we feature Berlin-based 26 year old Sven Weisemann. With a name like that, we expect hard dark Berlin techno, but no. We certainly got the unexpected. Sven is filled with all kinds of deep and soulful sounds, bringing us big Chicago house to Detroit techno somehow masterfully crafted all together. Relive your big dance floor Arc dancing days through this one.
No, we did not spell SUOLMATES wrong above. SUOL is an independent Berlin-based record label featuring Daniel Bortz, Till Von Sein, Trickski, and others. Now go on and get down and deep with this funky house mix by the amazing rising star, Daniel Bortz.
