André Pahl is known for his Safari mixes – pitched down journeys through uncharted seas, forbidden deserts and distant galaxies. Foraying into the psychedelic and sometimes electronic, while percussions drift from remote islands and rise up to touch with tender disco in a cinematic exploration of the slower heart beat rates of danceable music, Pahl carefully defines a new tone and set with each stage. After experiencing Mexico City’s lunatic music scene and co-running the label “Nuevos Ricos”, experiencing Pahl’s sets is like being compelled to push yourself inside a forest even though you know it’ll be dangerous.
He had a rendezvous with Mexico City’s lunatic music scene while living there for several years, co-running the label “Nuevos Ricos” and starting to DJ in bizarre neighborhood street parties, shady night clubs and art happenings inside jammed subway stations. Listening to André Pahl’s sets is like being compelled to push yourself inside a forest even though you know it’ll be dangerous—head first, then the whole body, submerged deep into a strange jungle world, partly solid, partly made of shimmering liquids.
