RotPG – Xavier De Encisco (01/20/2012)
A longtime fixture of LA’s electronic music scene since 1991, Xavier has DJed at and promoted parties of all sizes, from lofts to sports arenas and everything in between, playing with legends of dance music.
He is currently the resident and architect of LOVEFIX, an LA event promotion collective dedicated to fostering an underground community, creating space, and dance. He’s also recognized as being a DJ/promoter turned scholar of his trade, since completing his Masters degree in Chicano Studies, and writing his thesis on LA’s rave scene during the 1990s from a Chicano perspective.
With a passion for academia and underground nightlife he’s been invited to speak at conferences bringing forth LA’s unique underground dance culture and contributing to Droid Behavior’s D-Node podcast series by interviewing David Alvarado for his DJ set.
Xavier is currently working on his own music production under the alias’s Código, Spanish word for “Code” and Ponyboy. In addition he’s collaborating with other LA artists and is set to release music later in 2012. With over 20 years of DJ experience Xavier’s musical style ranges from acid house to techno, to deep/dub while maintaining that underground sound that has characterized his sets. Known for his programming and seamless mixing skills he’s been fortunate to take his sound to other cities around the U.S and abroad from SF to Miami, Vancouver CA, London UK, Guadalajara MX, and points in between.
