DJ Precolumbian Featured in Mask Magazine

DJ Precolumbian's (Chaska Sophia LTA '13, ACG '11) new mix was featured in Mask Magazine, an online style publication. Mask contributor, Anjum Mubarak Asharia writes, "If you’re in the mood to get lit and dismantle the illusory ideal of inclusivity, Precolumbian’s “A S Y L U M 0 0 1” is the one for you. The Philly-based, Peru-born DJ layers distinct sounds without flattening them out or forcing them to play nice. Featuring producers from across the Americas, South Africa, and elsewhere, Precolumbian has put together the kind of mix that begs for multiple listens (plus special attention to the text of the tracklist, which tells a whole story in itself, if you’re into that kind of thing).

From the biting refrain we were here first in Angel Ho’s “REMOVALS” to the dark humor of Abdul Kadir’s “Phone Bill Way Up,” to the perfect finale “We Have No Allegiance (Digital Dirge)” by E_SCRAAATCH, the mix is part requiem, part warning call, sounding the alarm on the duplicity of empire’s open arms and offering an unromanticized tribute to all those who have suffered therein."
