The first day of programming will begin with a panel talk on Latin America’s New Wave. With guest speakers Valesuchi (Chile), David Bugueño Zuñiga (Chile) and NAAFI’s Lechuga Zafiro(Uruguay), attendees will be invited to discuss and celebrate some of Chile and Latin America’s most exciting new collectives, their prevailing sounds and the future of Latin music.
One half of the production duo Masters At Work, Kenny Dope, will be on the couch to give an insight on his personal production approach and offer a lesson in his idiosyncratic blend of soul, jazz, hip-hop, house and broken beat.
Closing Wednesday night will be Legowelt with support from Future Times’ DJ Python and Santiago selectors VNZO and Mucho Sueno.
Thursday’s programme will see Honey Dijon open the evening with an intimate lecture. The electronic music icon will discuss her meteoric rise by taking a journey through her most important records, spanning back to her first dubs as an aspiring musician in Chicago and NYC, all the way through to her works as the queen of electronic music’s high fashion altar.
BUDx Boiler Room in Santiago will finish with an almighty closing party featuring a headline set from NYC DJ and Minimal Wave Records Founder, Veronica Vasicka with support by Diagonal boss Powell and local powerhouses Kamila Govorčin and Aurelius98.
