Today we have a special episode of Open House, featuring exclusive sets by a few of my favorite DJs from south of the border. First up is Aivan… His passion for electronic music led Aivan to promote international artists in the city of Queretaro. This is how I linked up with him – during my travels through Mexico. After surrounding himself with people who share similar taste, Aivan became interested in DJing as well. His sets have techno and house woven throughout, and take listeners on a journey. Strap in…
