Your Mix Fix: Papi Pérez

Read more
The word mixtape has plenty of different interpretations. It used to be that mixtapes were actually DJ sets recorded on cassette tapes, but with the coming of the digital music age, the name remained the same, but the definition expanded. Nowadays, people call mixtapes many different things, some of which are not necessarily mixed and most of which were never taped. Here we try to cover them all. In this column, Juan Data gives you a worthy one every week.

MIXTAPE: Mimimix 3rd Aniversario Fiestas Pirata

If you’re visiting D.F. and you wanna hang out with the cool kids, you should consider dropping by Fiestas Pirata. Since 2010, this party has been the go-to spot for the newest trends in urban Latin beats, from ñu-cumbia to dubstep and moombahton.

At the steering wheel of this pirate ship you have Papi Pérez, who just put together this short mix to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the party. In just 12 minutes he managed to compress hours of dance-floor madness, covering all the wide range of styles and tempos they play at the party with perfectly smooth transitions.

A short mix like this one deserves nothing but an equally short review, so yeah, this is it for now. See you next week, amigos!
