DJ Mix By Cadenza Label's Mendo, Playing the Electric Pickle This Thursday

Electronic music junkies should be more than familiar with Luciano's esteemed

Cadenza imprint. It's the home to such international luminaries as Ricardo

Villalobos, Loco Dice, and Guy Gerber.

Another name on the label's roster: Budding tech-house sensation David Mendo, a prolific Spanish DJ-producer

who's been on the rise since the mid '90s.

And local fans should be proud to learn that Mendo actually got his

start on Miami's own Groove On label with the release of his 2002 smash hit

"Tell Me" featuring Christie K., a number one on DJ

Mag's UK Hype Chart that year.

The rest of the decade would see Mendo make his mark on top labels like Cadenza, Get Physical, and Defected in

the House while cementing his reputation as a world-class DJ.

You can catch Mendo live on Thursday at the Electric Pickle, where he'll

be throwing down with Pacha Ibiza resident DJ Jonathan Cowan and

Miami's Cocodrills.
