DJ: Salón Acapulco
Down for some disco? Guadalajara’s Salón Acapulco takes you back to the shinny disco ball era in this Fandango mix tape full of retro dance beats with subtle tropical modern twists. An elegant set with constant tempo and smooth transitions where they recreate that kitschy atmosphere of a cocaine-induced party in early ’80s Miami with lots of neon lights, fluorescent plastic pink flamingos and all. Oh, and a convertible Ferrari parked right out the door.
Salón Acapulco is the collective name used by DJ/producers Telésforo (who specializes in re-edits of old hits revisited for the current dance floor) and Iñigo (who specializes in funk and Italo disco) spinning in tandem. They are also part of the Mix Le Fun collective, along with other luminaries of the decadent Mexican nightlife like Lost Mapaches and Los Master Plus. If you like this stuff I strongly recommend you visit Mix Le Fun’s blog periodically for lots of free cool stuff.
