Editors note. Ok we’re back. January is dead in BA so we took some time off, at least at the News desk. But we’re back now, so get ready. Dedicated to bringing you first hand exclusive content on the newest and coolest things in BA here we get the year going with Sucio’s Tropicore Mix.
Sucio (Dirty) from the age of 15 has been bothering each DJ that he comes in contact with in a fierce attempt to touch the mixer. I kid you not, my second DJ gig ever was at Boquitas, I was kind enough to bring the mixer and turntables for my then designer’s new art collective inauguration. That night Diplo showed up (see picture of Sucio messing with the mixer while Wes spits some silly rhymes) and I met Oro11 for the first time and it was also the first time I shared the booth with what would be a smattering of DJs I would later go on to work with. Sucio actually helped me out that afternoon, I was new to DJing and didn’t really have a clue what I was doing. He was nice about it, didn’t have an ego like some DJs do and from that moment on I was a fan of Sucio. Not to mention the music he plays is good. I asked him for a mixtape that day, I guess he finally got around to it (nearly 2 years later).
The second time Sucio bothered me in the booth I was not as happy. This time it was my debut at Zizek. Up there on the stage, alone, nervous, friends trickling in early to show some support. Next thing I know Sucio is on stage with me, touching some nobs on the mixer and telling me something about the mids were too high. This time, from being nervous and on edge, I told him to deja de joder and he and left and later came up to apologize. Sucio means no harm, it’s just his nature.
So the next time Sucio was Djing I decided to get even. I bothered him as much as I could, overdoing it. Though I don’t think it phased him, I think he’s used to it by now.
Anyways, enough personal stories, let’s talk a little about Sucio. After being into minimal and pop house for a while his style has morphed into any core you can invent. Trashsoftcore, chipcore, polkacore duo, bachatacore. He likes “black music” whatever that means, and music from movie soundtracks you see on Channel 9 on Sundays in Argentina. He picks up music on the street and incorporates them into his sets. The Spanish version of the write up is a good indicator of his style: messy, clumsy and hilariously ridiculous. We left it as is for the full effect.
Sucio is very low profile, keeps to himself and only plays when he feels really comfortable. He;s been called to play Zizek and he said yes cause he needs to buy more recordable CDs.
Warning, this mix is not for overly sensitive or anybody with heart conditions. We’re not sure what the Cumbia track has anything to do with the rest of the mix but we liked the way he mixed in a Japanese Breakcore/Raggacore artist on top of it.
