Presented by Resident Advisor x SXSW
Mexican DJ and producer Paulina Rodriguez aka Paurro naturally fell into the embrace of house, UK garage, breakbeat, bass, and techno music she graduated from college.
Paurro found a new home in the dance community which gave her a platform to advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and to elevate other artists’ work, with a big focus on those from her home country.
With an iconic essence grounded in house music, Paulina draws a fine line between her organic and energetic sounds, providing happy and unforgettable sets that leave a mark on the soul. Ranging from deep and minimal to uplifting and melodic sounds, often grazing 90s house, her true aim is to provoke a feeling of true freedom through song and dance.
After a few releases including her remarkable remix of Nuestra Forma by DJs Pareja and Lupe, she has just made her first appearance on Cómeme, considered to be Latin America’s essential dance label. Her new release Galavisión is composed of five dirty floor-fillers, filled with lush psychedelia.
She currently has a residency at Yu Yu and Funk Club in Mexico City which has hosted artists such as Ariel Zetina, Tama Sumo, Lakuti, James Bangura, and Elle Dee.
