Geko Jones
Brooklyn based DJ Geko Jones is the founding member of both the New York Tropical and Que Bajo party franchises in New York and a partner and co-owner of the Dutty Artz record label with producer Matt Shadetek and DJ /Rupture. His mixes span the tropical hemispheres and collage together hours of globally sonic dancefloor mayhem, while his DJ sets fuse heavy afro-latin percussion mashed up against the hard synth lines and global breaks. In 2013 he collaborated with Atropolis to produce Palenque Records Remixed album, one of the first compilations to adapt the notorious African beats of San Basilio de Palenque, Colombia with contemporary electro beats.

The past six years have found him sharing a booth, stage or collaborating with a long roster of A-list globalistas like Buraka Som Systema, Bomba Estereo, Princess Nokia, Rita Indiana, Jahdan Blakkamoore, Vampire Weekend,
and Mad Decent’s Toy Selectah to name a few. You can catch him bouncing between Brooklyn to Bogota or tearing the roof off at festivals worldwide.

Galletas Calientes
Coming to you from France & Colombia, DJ Galletas Calientes gives us “Freshly baked party music and modern folklore”. Electro, tropical, breakbeat, balkan, klezmer and more.

Born and raised in France, living in Colombia, founder of Galletas Calientes Records, Dj Galletas Calientes aka Charles Tox, produces, mixes and remixes an eclectic blend of european and latin-american folklore with various electronic genres. Having worked with artists as different as Dj Click and Systema Solar, he’s known for his ability to warm up the crowds using a unique mixture of Cumbia, champeta, electroswing, balkan beats, funky breaks, afrobeat and salsa.

Galletas Calientes Records has a family “human relations”- inspired approach to music. Partying, or at least having a drink with all the individuals involved in the various projects, is one of the rules. They promote groovy tunes to dance to, whose genres shift as its owner’s musical taste, and the people he meets, evolve – so it is in constant evolution. It has a local approach, along with a global vision of the music, leading to limitless fusion and creativity.
