Mexico City Recap!

A massive cheer to Ali Gua Gua for hosting me and linking me to some wonderful people in Mexico City. I can't even begin to describe all the great things about this place, but certainly the gigs, especially at Pulqería Insurgentes (Courtesy of Ali and the fabulous Terrorista Del Sabor), and at Foro Normandie (big thanks to the Frikstailers and everyone involved, and Pa Kongal for the amazing set), were a high point for me.

What's that sound?

"Dj Ripley gave a great disquisition of hidden gems you've probably never heard! Fascinating how someone can use so many styles and so many artists to create a work of sound art one can both hear and feel."

I also got to meet some of the people involved with LUCHADORAS which is an online TV series focusing on women all over Mexico (and beyond) who are fighting to improve the situation of women. We had a nice talk and a bit of an interview (hope to find a link for that soon), and I am looking forward to building more with them and supporting them in the work they do!

I will be back soon! Can't wait to throw down some heavy bass with Sonido Berzerk, maybe get experimental alongside Tarana on their next tour, and tear up more clubs and other spaces within and beyond Mexico City!

An Interview and the last gig of the tour!

I was privileged to be interviewed for GatoPardo magazine, a respected art magazine in Mexico.
I spoke a lot about the politics of nightlife, and how my academic and musical work inform each other.

I also was able to boost Deli Nights, my last gig in Mexico this time, which is also the first of a new series. check the lineup, RSVP online, and tell all your friends in Mexico City to come out on Saturday!

So excited for Mexico City! This is just a taste, already planning a proper Mexico tour in the future.

Sadly, the Thursday (5/19) gig is cancelled (anyone want to book DJ Ripley for Thursday or Friday in or near Mexico City please get in touch) :(
