A young DJ Juan Data preferred to make mix tapes and rap with his friends than to go outside and play. Later on, his involvement in the underground hip-hop scene in Buenos Aires led him to publish the fist magazine dedicated to the movement, but he was still unable to buy turntables and realize his dream of becoming a DJ. With a move to California and turntables bought, DJ Juan Data was finally born. Along with DJs Dub Snakkr and Diet, the trio created Stronghold Sound. On their first compilation, Audio Refuge, DJ Juan Data was born again as Bondi Blaster, a DJ that mixes all his influences, anything from rap to cumbia to Andean folk and funk.
The luchador masked Bondi Blaster makes his first mark with his upcoming EP, ¡Lo’ Juimo!, out March 6 via Stronghold Sound. The EP includes five tracks as well as other remixes, instrumentals and alternate versions. The album also features Dub Snakkr, Tami, Gabriel Navia, Ephniko, Nes, Michael Parsons and Pablo Freakman.
