Santiago Salazar started at the top as one of Mike Banks’s soldiers in the fiercely independent Underground Resistance squad, where he played in both Los Hermanos and Galaxy to Galaxy. His spinning as DJ S2, his work under his own name, and his mixes as Ican (with Esteban Adame) are just as solid: Soulful techno that’s at once soaring and hard-hitting. DJ Ou can match Salazar’s depths, as his housey releases on Jus-Ed’s Underground Quality and his own Strength Music prove. With Anthony Parasole and DJ Spinoza.
