Klang Mix 002: CRÎTØNÏA Live at El Local en Santurce
Mixed by Nicole Vega Reyes aka CRÎTØNÏA
Words from the artist on this mix:
Hola Hola. My name is Nicole Vega Reyes, also known as Critonia. This mix is for Klang Magazine. It's being recorded right here, right now, at El Local in Santurce, which is a very special place to me and to others. Here we showcase bands, DJs, and art projects from Puerto Rico and around the world. It's been here for quite a while - more than 10 years, if I'm not mistaken. Which brings me to remember, [that] when I started my DJing career, it was 10 years back... I first started doing playlists for my friends here, and on joy rides, I would take them out and put [on] whatever I wanted.
It all started back in the Indie Sleaze era, I started listening to more electronic music, and I [found] a duo named Justice. So one day, I was walking on the street, and when I looked down, I saw a flier, and it was Justice — [they were] going to come here to Puerto Rico. They came and I had the most amazing time and I came to realize that I wanted to be a DJ and producer. So I bought my first equipment, which was a Pioneer DDJ SX and started mixing. I started DJing at El Local, Club 77, La Respuesta, La Placita sometimes, and made my name.
Later on, I started producing music and I became more and more aware that I wanted to do this for the rest of my life. So now I'm gonna present to you the mix that I made with much much love about the songs when I was a young raver. In my raver era, I listened to Club House and Dark Electro House. I hope you'll enjoy it...
