Interview with K-lix
How did you get into the electronic dance music scene and Djing?
I started going to parties at a young age, I come from a band background playing guitar at punk bands then just getting into the scene, traded few guitars for a couple of decks n laptop with Ableton and it’s been a roller coaster since then.
Describe the scene in Guatemala. What makes it special and sets it apart?
It’s a small scene it has its up & downs we have seasons in which we have a lot of international come through the city and play and it’s always a Vibe, people are super warm & wild. Throughout the years we also seen the numbers of Djs rise & Producers are getting up there too. We have seen a lack of venues and spaces limiting the growth of it lately which is kinda sad. But we still find a way through to keep the party alive.
Happy New Year! What are your goals for 2018 and beyond?
Got a couple of releases coming up on my label. Aethyr, my EP is coming early 2018 and then I have a few others in April. I am also in the works of breaking out from just playing in the city to tour the world. Our focus are summer fests in Europe and around the states are deff things we are trying to close right now.

Tell us about your mix…
Went through a lot of the new fun edgy tech house I love playing transitioning to deeper techno and old school minimal vibes which I love playing, like my favorite sets is when i have a around 3 hours or more to go through a true journey off all the sub genres of techno & techhouse I enjoy going through to tell a full story.
Love a good smoothie filled w greens like a good vegan but when I’m playing a show nothing beats a Chivas whiskey on the rocks.
