PERUVIAN TECHNO DJS

September 22, 2009

Peru is famous for its techno. We Peruvians have bass pumping through our veins. Here are some of my favourite albums.

DJ BADAZZ: ALMA DEL PERU

DJ Badazz was one of the pioneers of the Peruvian techno scene. On this album he plays the cowbell at 130bpm.

DJ CHABUCA GRANDA: LA VOZ DEL PERU

Peru’s first muchacha of techno. Her beat making is furious like a ravenous coyote. If you listen to this album backwards your mind will explode.

DJ PERU: SPOONRAKER

DJ Peru makes beats out of spoons. How or why he does it, nobody knows. But it sure sounds good!

GOV’T MULE

September 20, 2009

Check out this band, ‘Gov’t Mule’. Gov’t stands for government. At first I wanted nothing to do with these guys, because I haven’t paid my taxes. Once I was convinced that they weren’t out to steal my pesos, I gave them a listen.

They play bluesy rock. It’s not my cup of slurpee, but they do score points for putting mules on their covers.
