San Diego-based artist Memo Rex has made some major waves in the scene and now he’s taking listeners on a trip with this exclusive mix!
Southern California has become a hotbed for house and techno over the past few years as it continues to surge in popularity and one of the artists helping drive that forward is Memo Rex. First catching our ear back in 2017, he’s been on a massive rise through the ranks ever since with releases on labels including Desert Hearts and Hood Politics while also wooing crowds with sets at Desert Hearts Festival and more.
While we may not be able to see Memo Rex play live in the flesh anytime soon, he’s been busy at work in the studio. For his next release, Ominous, that’s due out on Beatport on May 11 and other streaming platforms on May 25, he dives deep into the techno realm. Featuring nine tracks and a remix from none other than Lee Reynolds, this album is set to be a surefire smash on German label Jannowitz. Ominous also sees him stay true to his San Diego roots with artists like Dylan Andrew, xhrdn, Délos, The Wendigo, and ElezD collaborating on tunes with him.
Additionally, he’s also flexed his mixing muscle with a number of features on livestreams including Desert Hearts Digital Festival and countless others during the quarantine so far. But if you’ve missed those sets you’re in luck because he’s gifted us with a mix today you simply need to listen to if you love underground beats that’s also the perfect one to end your weekend with!
