White Visitation: A Spotlight on Mexico City’s Techno Scene

Posted by Palisades BK on June 14th, 2016

 

Online sharing platforms have facilitated a welcome boom within electronic music over the past decade or so, and techno — a genre birthed from a tradition of afro-futurism, queer joy, and cultural resistance — has been one of the most exciting recipients of this resurgence.

Nicolas Guerrero, aka White Visitation, is a Mexico City techno veteran with an international reputation. In addition to releasing on established electronic platforms like L.I.E.S. and RVNG, Guerrero has helped grow his local scene with his party No Sleep, which he launched in 2014 with Frankie Francisco.

Sad Cactus Records: A Creative Oasis In The Hudson Valley

Luckily, Tim Brown, Niccolo Porcello and Spencer Davis, heads of Poughkeepsie NY’s Sad Cactus Records, have supportive community of friends. At a little more than two years old, the label has racked up a musically diverse catalog of releases from artists like the jazz-fusion outfit Vishnu Basement, indie-rocker Abi Reimold, SUPERTEEN, Doubles, Fake Boyfriend and more.
