Santiago Salazar’s Positive Reflections
Stellar producer Santiago Salazar enthusiastically shares music emerging from his close-knit Los Angeles techno community.
From the moment a young Santiago Salazar peeked over his neighbor’s fence to see booties shaking at a backyard dance party, he knew he wanted to become a DJ. Ever since, he has paid steady dues to become one of the premier producers in Los Angeles’ burgeoning second-wave techno scene. A stint in Detroit working under the tutelage of the Underground Resistance visionaries inspired Salazar to infuse his music with his cultural identity. Salazar’s recent album Chicanismo is an ode to his roots in the form of soulful musical expression. Always one to boost up his community, Santiago Salazar stacks his LAndscape appearance with selections from his Los Angeles music peers.
