The Art of the Crossfade, Part 2: Listening Like a Sonidero

A Live Musical Lecture in Collaboration with Toy Selectah

PMP Director Josh Kun is the Santa Monica Museum of Art's first "Resident Collector" for the museum's "Collection of Ideas" series. His residency offers a series of performances/lectures on the art of the "Crossfader" -- the toggle on the DJ mixer that allows you to move between the music on one input and the music on another. It allows you to mix without erasing, combine without destroying, to juggle and sustain difference. The mix is where collaboration and connection live.
Toy Selectah was the DJ behind Control Machete, the trailblazing Monterrey, Mexico hip hop crew. Toy has worked with a long list of artists, groups and friends within the music scene of Latin America and the U.S. including Calle 13, Diplo, Gustavo Cerati, Celso PiƱa, Manu Chao and Molotov. He remains one of the most sought-after remixers and producers in contemporary Latin music.
