Juan Manuel Cortes, also known as Lunate, for those of you unaware, is one of Bogota’s most promising artists in the field of electronic music. A statement supported by physical releases on 100% Silk, live act performances in Mutek in Montreal and Bogota, and more recently, being chosen to take part in the RBMA in Paris.
We got together in my little studio in Colombia to remix Huxley and S-man’s “Calling”, and the result provides a glimpse into his particular vibe shining through between the cracks. Quite an honor to be able to work with him.
(This post has been updated to include new information about the artist.)

New mix!! About 80 minutes of records I like; new, old and exclusives, all put together for your (and your hips’) enjoyment, presented by the awesome guys at FLUSH, who are doing a great job in the local scene with their podcasts and parties all over the city which champion a left-field take on House music; much needed deed in the formulaic soup the local scene regularly boils into.
“Flushcast 002 – Bogota | 05·05·14
In a city where djs, producers and musicians keep aiming at reproducing well worn trends, where underground music stands small against the tropical top 40 in a scene so confused with its own identity it hardly resembles what it’s trying to portray, Phillip O stands tall as one of the most uncompromising artists to come out of Colombia. Working quietly from the outskirts of Bogotá Phillip has built one of the most interesting catalogs of music we’ve heard recently and we’re pleased to introduce him to whomever doesn’t know him and to reintroduce him to those who forgot.
Mixed by PHILLIP O for the underground rave society”
The guys at MNMLKTCHN kindly asked for a mix to feature on their Ktchn Cast series earlier this year; I recorded it back in July and was released on their site last month where it’s possible to listen and/or download. Check out their other episodes and follow the podcast series.
Because rainy days are always great for starting blogs. Add to that a super painful ache in my stomach and I embark on a super exciting blogging adventure…. *yay*
Seriously though, here is a playlist with all my mixcloud uploads:
