French techno-trance DJ Charles Tox fell in love with the music of (and a woman from) Colombia a few years ago.
His curiosity piqued, he began scouring local record stores to build an impressive collection of traditional Colombian folk music on vinyl. Don’t get him started… He could talk about it for hours on end!
Now, he is fully focused on making music with local groups, which usually involves reaching out to his favourite artists to offer his services in the form of catchy remixes of material from the new Colombian scene.
He is also the co-founder of Galletas Calientes Records, a French electro-tropical label whose vinyl releases weave Latin American sounds with everything from breakbeat to the music of the Balkans.
