DJ: Acorde On
MIXTAPE: Los Annales de la Discoteque
Last time we featured Acorde On in this weekly column was almost three years ago (yeah, sometimes I too am amazed that this column has lasted that long), so I felt it’d be appropriate to bring him back. He’s been very active during this time, working on his mashups (or as he calls them, “popurris”), designing zebra masks to help keep his identity secret and tweaking hardware to create his own controllers for his live shows.
In his latest mixtape, Acorde On pays tribute to his disco influences, seamlessly blending the new and the old, the original and the remixed, featuring plenty of über-familiar tunes by the likes of Kinky, Michael Jackson, Daft Punk, and Blondie, with some more underground stuff like Chico Sonido, Disque DJ, and Acorde On himself. Forty minutes total of disco dancing, so bring out your bell bottom pants and platform shoes and hustle on down the dance floor.
