Our listeners have fallen in love with the artist of the Shake Collective out of Cuenca, Ecuador. We’ve already featured Nicolas Lopez and Christian Cooper aka Repook this year and fans keep asking us for more from these guys. Luckily, Nicolas Lopez introduced us to Daniel Jaramillo aka Jaramillo who gave us this fantastic mix right away and also promises that we’ll have something in the near future from final Shake Collective member Santiago Ordóñez to complete the series. We couldn’t be more pleased. For now, sit back and enjoy the groovy deep house sounds of Jaramillo for our 50th installment of The CONDUIT. - Sean-Michael Yoder

Cuenca sounds like a great scene with local talent and big name artists passing through, Cooper has been a great ambassador for his home and has gotten our attention. Like all great music from South America, this mix is made with passion and love. - Sean-Michael Yoder

Not like an ussual DJ in his country, Christian experiments with all kinds of weird sounds that comes up his mind. Tired of all the typical electronic music that was going on in the world, his productions are Deep and also futuristic; and he goes through the dark side of the music, always going experimental and twisted. His productions are part of labels like Uranobeat and Footprint Muzik (Colombia) and also of the well known London based label Apparel Music. A lot of good things have happended to Christian in 2011, like sharing the DJ Booth with almost all the well recognized talents of his country, and also a couple of international DJ’s. This 2012 will be a promising year for Christian, he’s got a lot of personal projects that must be completed.
Nicolas Lopez hails from Cuenca, Ecuador and contacted us via Facebook to tell us about his FutureDreams mix series under the artist name Soundless. He calls it a Futuristic Vintage Vibe. The sound is wide ranging and daring, we love the chances he takes in a mix and are proud to have him onboard with a CONDUIT mix.. - Sean-Michael Yoder
