JUNK + TRUNK: Acapulco's Junkie Kid brings hard-hitting house to the Aura Kitchen & Bar.

The resort town of Acapulco, Mexico, is known for its warm, sunny beaches. But the Acapulco-born producer known as Junkie Kid is not known for crafting tropical bass. Cutting his teeth on techno, trance and Dutch hardstyle, Junkie Kid’s excellent debut full-length merges all of his influences with moody melodies and heavy textures for a style he has called “neo-hard house.” At this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, he rocked the Wasteland Stage with a little help from a full mariachi band, mashing up the triumphant brass tones of traditional Mexican folk music with bowel-rattling sub-bass.
