Listen to “Acapulco,” a track inspired by “mirrey” culture and the legendary Baby’O nightclub

“Acapulco” was inspired by a legendary nighclub called Baby’O — Quién magazine wrote a great article about the venue last year — and classic mirrey culture, a certain subculture mostly comprised of upper crust Mexicans (think Luis Miguel & Roberto Palazuelos).

I wrote the chunk of “Acapulco” about seven years ago and it’s been sitting in my hard drive ever since. I recently dusted off all the digital dirt from the original demo and added a few new elements, such as a peppy Roland Juno 106 arp and an 808 kick. After tinkering with the mix for a few hours I sent it off to get mastered and now you have this synthpop track at your finger tips.

Have at it, papaloys & lobukis (you can also download it here).

New “Party Girl” music video

Inspired by a scene in Female Trouble where Divine goes shoplifting, “Party Girl” was shot and directed by Maurice De La Falaise in Tijuana, Mexico. The protagonist is none other than Daniel Casillas, aka “La Coloreteada,” a grand, local nightlife personality. Many of the scenes were shot in  La Mi-Ja De La Mezcalera, one of the city’s best bars, during a recent P3CULIAR show.

Special thanks to Carlos Raoul, Sergio Gonzalez, Caballo, and the rest of La Mija’s crew.

Because nobody asked for it, P3CULIAR is finally performing in New York. Special guest ‪#‎theanalogtimes ‬(https://soundcloud.com/theanalogtimes) will be joining me on stage, and Selector Monobichi, AKA Oscar León Bernal, will be the guest DJ (BTW, I will not be touching no virtual turntable that night). A small amount of Role-play vinyl copies will be available for $20 at the show but you can still purchase one here.

I hope to see ya there, kids.
