DJ Koolt has been pivotal to the rise of his native Uruguayan scene ever since he started spinning in the 90s.

While peers such as Z@P and Nicolas Lutz left for Europe to further establish themselves, he remained rooted in Montevideo and helped make it one of the most exciting places to hear minimalist dance music. Its spiritual home is Phonotheque, the club he co-founded a decade ago and where he lays down his forward-thinking sounds to a devoted and hardcore fan base.

The scene Godfather goes big for us this week with a two-hour deep dive into his sound. It perfectly showcases his silky transitions and ability to tell stories on the dance floor. Acid, breaks and techno are the foundational sounds but they are embellished in signature style with plenty of spaced-out designs, a sense of gritty industrial futurism and plenty of avant-garde electronics.
