Pacheko’s New Weird Summer Mix

By 04 December, 2012

It’s most definitely not summer anymore, at least in England anyway, but Pacheko‘s mix from earlier this year for NWLA couldn’t be any more relevant. Pacheko, along with fellow Venezuelan Pocz, is one of the men currently responsible for putting changa tuki, a Venezuelan dance music and culture, on the world map.

Pacheko is a DJ and producer from Venezuela. While fascinated by dance music from around the globe, Pacheko’s recent work has seen him come closer to home, working with DJs such as DJ Baba and DJ Yirvin, responsible for distinctly Venezuelan hybrids of dance music such as raptor house and changa tuki. Pacheko’s most recent release was the Changa Letal EP for Enchufada Records, where he and Pocz collaborated with DJ Yirvin, Cardopusher and Buraka Som Sistema on essentially a changa tuki primer.

To find out more about Pacheko you can read Amaya Garcia’s interview with Pocz and Pacheko here and you can also read our guide to changa tuki here.
