#MusicInTheAir Podcast hosts this week :
NYTO b2b BRODERIC
For today’s Villahangar’s MusicInTheAir we have a return in a new guise and a four-handed Podcast: the DJ and producer born in San Diego, California, raised and living in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico Nyto, and with him, the producer and DJ Broderić, born in San Diego, raised in Tijuana, and now based in San Diego.
Nyto began his DJ career in 2014, after a childhood marked by music, where his father always listened to old school tunes and African / tribe music, with a creative direction that over time has unfolded in a wide variation of sounds, in continuous evolution and transformation, from Electronica / Downtempo to Organic House, passing through Deep Tribal, Deep Shamanic, Afro House, Ethnic House, as well as Deep House and Tech House, with his own personal interpretation of everything that surrounds him and inspires him for the signature of his sound. The 70s and 80s influence him, and when he takes off his DJ headphones, he listens to Latin and reggae. “The artists that influenced me the most are Sabo, Bedouin, Derun, Lemurian and the list goes on…” he says.
Broderić instead began his career in 2018, ranging from deep, down tempo, minimal and house, leading the dance floor in a deep melodic and rhythmic night full of groove. In fact, he says: “My musical Journey began when I was around 12 years old. I was given a guitar and taught myself how to play it by figuring out songs that I used to listen to and still do today. Around 5 years ago I learned how to dj, and produce”.
Regarding the genres of music that influence him the most, Broderić lately finds a lot of inspiration from old R&B Jams and as well as afro latin music, and when he takes off his DJ headphones, his playlist is formed from a wide variety of genres anything from west coast rap Latin R&B, punk rock, synth pop and reggae. He says: “I’ve been trying to figure out my own sound lately, but I was and still am heavily influenced by Deep House from around 2012 from artists Like Art Department, Dj Harvey, & Chaim to name a few”.
Nyto and Broderić are co-founders of Green Gods Records of San Diego CA, a new label created in 2020, together with a friend, Luis Adrian, the one who started the whole movement.
How would you define your musical style today? And are there any differences with the past, an evolution over time?
Broderić: My musical style ranges from deep house to afro, organic. When NYTO & I started to work together there was a bit of a difference in our sound, there still is actually, however we can usually find a common ground or gray area where both of our styles collide, and we’ve had very good responses in our outing playing together. Growing up in Mexico, Latin music has been part of our whole lives, I would definitely say that our sound is much influenced by our Latin roots.
What are your plans for the present and the immediate future? Do you have any new projects coming up?
Nyto: I just finished a new track called “KONOS”. You can listen to the premier on this set, it has a trippy vocal and groove. Currently working on an AfroHouse track.
What can you tell us about your Green Gods project? You have hosted many interesting artists, what are your plans for this?
Green Gods is a lifestyle brand influenced by the interconnection of Cannabis, Music and Fashion. Founded in 2016. This brand promotes all levels of consciousness, environmentally and artistically by crafting quality products inspired by our roots in Mexico with inspiration from the West Coast. Curating music events bringing communities together to connect to our natural environment in order to create a balanced lifestyle. Our next event is on October 2nd, we are brining Kerala Dust for the first time in Tijuana Mexico.
What do you think of the current music scene of the country where you live? What do you think are the differences with Europe?
Broderić: We actually just went to Ibiza for a couple of days last month, I would say there is definitely a difference in sound and all around vibe, It feels like electronic music is a part of the culture in Europe.
How is your summer? Do you have dj sets planned at the moment for the present and the future? Do you have residences? How is it going?
Nyto: So far my summer it’s been pretty good, I had the opportunity to play in Europe for the first time. I had a blast. I don’t have a residency anywhere at the moment, but I’ve been having a lot of DJ gigs in San Diego and Tijuana MX.
What could you say about your Podcast, sound and inspiration?
Broderić and I recorded a very special set for you guys. We tried to play a little bit of everything and show you all our taste in music. We hope you guys will enjoy it.
