XAVIER DE ENCISO
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 Código, Spanish word for “Code” and is collaborating with other LA artists and is set to release music later this year. 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.
One half of Los Angeles techno duo PONYBOY, and the man behind deep-house moniker ‘Charles Scott’, Findley has been involved in the underground music scene as a producer and DJ for over 15 years, during which time, has released music on seminal imprints Nordic Trax, Robsoul, Fiji, and Iron Box, and has been remixed by dance music heavyweights like Steve Bug, and Souldoubt.
Re-surfacing recently from an extended hiatus, and with a new-found passion and drive, 2011 is shaping up to be a good year for Findley, with several forthcoming EPs and remixes as Charles Scott, and the birth of techno project PONYBOY, alongside LA ambassador of tech, Xavier De Enciso. For Findley, the name of the game is, and has always been: chunky, deep, and groovy techno/house, With a style and sensibility all his own.
