Hector To Launch His Own VL Label At The BPM Festival 2016!

One year from his unforgettable Vatos Locos showcase, we’re excited to share that Mexico’s own Hector is launching his brand new label VL at The BPM Festival 2016. Hector and the guys are ready to take it to the next level with another unforgettable night of no frills music on Sunday, January 17 at Canibal Royal with Chad Andrew, David Gtronic, Hito, Javier Carballo, Pinto, Randall M and Sece! Get in the #BPM2016 mindset with Hector’s official podcast for The BPM Festival which just premiered on Mixmag.

With his name getting nods from all corners of the underground, Hector’s VL label will shine a light on his own music and that of favorite DJ/producers and Vatos Locos crew members such as Chad Andrew, David Gtronic, Javier Carballo, Hanfry Martinez, Randall M, Pinto and Sece.

Hector tells Mixmag, "Working at Phonica in my early years and coming from vinyl background, the most important thing for me in this industry is to be able to get the music heard in the way I feel most comfortable with. To have your own label and have total control over this is paramount for me. This is something that started organically and has developed naturally thanks to having a good crew who are all in it for the right reasons, no egos, just quality music and events. These guys are refreshingly talented and we all share the same vision, and I cannot wait for you to all hear the first release."

Kenny Glasgow’s “In Too Deep” On No. 19 Music

A veteran of The BPM Festival since his first appearance in 2011 as one half of Canadian duo Art Department, #BPM2016 is excited to welcome back Kenny Glasgow who rejoins the fiesta this time as a solo act.

Releasing his first post-Art Department single titled “In Too Deep” just days ago, Kenny Glasgow gives us a taste of what to expect on his upcoming solo album Circus Tales on No. 19 Music. The single, which also features the track “Sexxy” and premiered via THUMP, displays Kenny’s ability to shine as a solo artist, both in the DJ booth and in the studio. “Like sitting in a grassy field (or a tree branch, as the artwork suggests) filled with blue moonlight, the track evokes elements of nature in its diverse palette of sounds,” says THUMP. Sounds good to us!

We can’t wait to catch Kenny Glasgow’s return to Playa as he joins the No. 19 Music crew at their official #BPM2016 showcase. Check out “In Too Deep” here:

New Keinemusik EP – David Mayer ‘Jaded’

The weekend may be over but David Mayer’s track "Jaded" from his new EP (out now) is the perfect way to start the week off. The mission is obvious: take no prisoners on the dance floor. The groovy baselines are just what you'd want to hear at the peak of any night. The Keinemusik crew once again releases another gem and one we can't wait to hear at #BPM2016!

David is one of the founding members of the artist collective and label Keinemusik and fans have been waiting for this release for a long time coming, making it all the sweeter. Keinemusik is not any kind of record label. The Berlin based collective is a DIY-operation, with five releases per year since their inception in 2009. We're happy they'll be returning to Playa del Carmen to host their second showcase at The BPM Festival! Keep watching and our social media channels for day, venue and lineup announcements!

Listen below. Purchase via Beatport.
