About the concept:
Here is the one hundred and seventh instalment of our series “abc plays xyz”.
The idea behind it is to ask some DJs/mixing artists if they have an artist or label in mind that they love and would like to use for a mix.
So the approach of each mix is clear: the choosen DJ/mixing artist makes a selection of tracks produced by one artist (and her/his monikers. or released on a label (and its sublabels. and creates a nice mix from it.

About Illegal Alien Records:
Illegal Alien Records is a Mexican record label of Electronic music focus on Techno, Electronica, Experimental and Ambient. Born in 2007 in Florida, USA, founded by the Mexican Ricardo Garduno. Currently Dig-it, DJ Saint Pierre, Fixeer, Fixon, Mari Mattham and Unkle Fon have joined the project, working alongside with Ricardo in the definition and curating the musical proposal of the label, as well as in its positioning within the worldwide Electronic panorama.
The name ‘Illegal Alien’ was adopted because that was the status granted by the US government to Ricardo Garduno when he lived in the United States. At that time all the immigrants who entered the country illegally were denominated like that. As a result of this, the rights of all illegal immigrants were limited or nulled in many cases. So, awarding this name to the label is a way to remember those immigrants around the world, whose objectives by leaving their countries of origin is to work for a better life and to show that, regardless of the status that other social groups attribute to us, it is possible to reach objectives.

Alexskyspirit About His Choice:
I easily picked illegal Alien Records cause i trully believe that its one of the most open minded techno labels out there. Its also the record label that i have played the most through my sets the last two years.I can find stuff in there from mental hypnotic techno to industrial driving noisy tracks.It would definetely be my choice again & again if it has to do with playing music for an extended dj set. I have never released music there but i think that this one makes my choice even more romantic.
