Juan Jara

Graphic designer / dj / producer

For this 0.7 Episode of the Rotations radio show series we bring you
Creative Director / Resident DJ at Hidden Roots @JUAN-JARA,
another huge talent and artist we support. A regular on the NYC underground scene, Juan is originally from Medellin, Colombia, but moved to the United States at a young age and developed an intense passion for techno & house music. This exclusive mix gives you a peak into his unique style with a blend of deep dark baselines and melodic sounds. He takes you on a journey keeping a unique groove and rocking deep beats.


Bringing the tunes for week number 11 is none other than our good friend Mr O’Neil! Native of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, O’Neil now resides in New York City where you can find him diggin’ through promos for his newly founded Endless Love Recordings label all the while producing his own. His love for deep house, house & techno is well, ENDLESS, and that’s exactly what he intends to portray with his imprint. This week he’s been called upon to select the soundtrack for your daily commute, workout, chillaxation or what have you; now turn the speakers up and enjoy.


Track list coming soon …

You ask, you get.

Olle, Dollar Mambo & Juan did us proud with some house an stuff.

A superb podcast this week out of London… It’s signed by Manow. A relentless and unstoppable Manow heads into 2013 on the back of his debut EP “D-Thing” at the end of last year on Kote Records. This mix is a sample of Manow’s musical influences. More than a dancefloor expression, here is his own expression of himself, and the result can be quite seductive and captivating. The entire fifty-seven minutes ooze underground house. This mix is diverse and danceable and obviously makes him a man of taste.
