DJ: Doctor Stereo
MIXTAPE: Exitos En Castellano
Usually when we go back in time on this column, the furthest back we get is the ’70s, maybe the ’60s, sometimes. This week, however, a Doc Brown impersonator invited us on a Delorean ride and set the timer to the ’50s, to the era of mambo and bolero, and from there he took us all over Latin America, searching for some soulful roots in the form of mono LPs.
Doctor Stereo is an Argentine vinyl archeologist, DJ, and producer whose original music and remixes have been released by several prestigious labels including New York’s Names You Can Trust, Germany’s Resense and Sweden’s G.A.M.M. Here we have him doing an impeccable 25-minute mix of pure vinyl that, if you close your eyes, will make you feel like you’re dancing at your grandma’s senior prom. Just don’t make out with her, it’s weird.
