Sakro represents the new wave mexican house, his home country. He draws from his house influences, jazz, soul and hip-hop through the currents of the cities of Detroit and Chicago. His productions have been honored as much in digital as on vinyl, on labels such as Karlovak, La Vie En Rose, Housewax, Fathers and Sons Productions, Amam, Lake Placid, Houseworx, Street Knowledge, soon Raum…Musik and now Bon Vivant, his own imprint with his pal the parisian talent Andrade.
He has seen his compositions be played by big names, from Ricardo Villalobos, Raresh, Dorian Paic, Thomas Melchior, Richie Hawtin, Hold Youth, Shaun Reeves, Ryan Crosson, Dyed Soundorom, Dewalta, Ray Okpara to ZIP – co-founder of Perlon Recordings label – who included his production ‘Jazz in the Forest’ in his latest FABRIC 67 compilation. His talent led him to perform at a Boiler Room in Mexico City in 2014, and talent, well Sakro has a lot more where that came from.
