Second Mixpak's March Residency : 

⭐ Playero DJ : 
DJ Playero, was a key figure in the dissemination of reggaeton during its formative period in the 1990s, he produced a series of mixtapes that synthesized hip-hop and reggae rhythms with Spanish-language freestyling. These tapes circulated around the barrios of San Juan and were highly influential upon the generation that would go on to define reggaeton in the coming decade.

⭐ RIOBAMBA_dj : 
Riobamba is an Ecuadorian-Lithuanian producer, DJ, and cultural activist based in Brooklyn. Riobamba’s rowdy, deeply researched live sets reflect back nightlife’s power as a site of joy and resistance, amplifying connectivetissues between YouTube clips, dembow brujería, bodega soundtracks, and noise hyperreality "suped up with a twisted, industrial gnarl"

⭐ Dre Skull :
