Go deep with DJ Python’s Face Mix

The NYC-based producer specialises in hypnotic dembow rhythms.

Those who listen to DJ Python’s music tend to really love DJ Python’s music. Alongside Brian Piñeyro’s releases under aliases like Luis, DJ Wey, DeeJay Xanax, as DJ Python he’s crafted his own distinctive style. Gentle synth pads create a pretty sound and a pensive mood, while hypnotic dembow rhythms lure the listener into repetitive, drawn-out grooves.

It’s a sound that people call deep reggaeton”. While he only uses the genre name half-seriously, Piñeyro – who is of Argentinian and Ecuadorian heritage – embraces Latin music with his all productions. Alongside dropping his (very good) second DJ Python album Mas Amble this year, Piñeyro contributed to Discos en 3 – a compilation of Latin artists experimenting with triplet patterns – which was released on Peruvian duo Dengue Dengue Dengue’s label Kebrada.

What’s the vibe and direction of your Face Mix?

I played it at my friend Ezra and Jack’s studio. These are songs from friends and songs I liked. No particular direction or vibe.

What do you miss about touring and DJing in the physical world – and what don’t you miss about it?

I miss seeing friends who live in different places. I miss being inspired by seeing other people play music, but then it’s nice to be inspired by things closer to the self. I feel like it’s a big time to do some world building.

Can you tell us a bit about Dengue Dengue Dengue and their new label Kebrada? What’s their ethos and what do you like about working with them?

Love the Triple D Crew. Inspiring and smart people and a true pleasure to work with :)
