DJ Pastek aka Kevin Weldon is an artist based in Montreal, Canada. We’ve stuck some of his stuff up on the blog before.
He contacted me recently to let me know that he’d just finished an album of mash ups of Kuduro & Dubstep and I when I heard this I nearly dropped cause I love Kuduro and Dubstep.
So of course it was a pleasure for me to agree to post the album up here as an exclusive and a bloody good album it is too, I’ve had it on REPEAT play for the past week. There’s great tracks to play out but also some excellent stuff just to listen to. It’s all unofficial of course but I think the idea is a great one and the execution respectful to both genres!
Here’s what he says:
I’m 24, been Djing for the last 3 years and I just moved to Montreal.
I did these Mashups so I could have a couple of Kuduro tracks I could play in a Dubstep set!
I also want to say thanks to Dj Umb and GB for their support.
Artwork was made by my friend Francesco de Gallo the guy behind Hobocult Records.
A man of very few words but heaps load of talent and I think a very bright future as a music producer on the strength of this album.
THANK YOU, DJ PASTEK 😉
