Broz Rodriguez Reflects On 100 Episodes Of The #TheHappyHourOnAir

 
Today we’re thrilled to be joined by Broz Rodriguez as he celebrates 100 episodes of his radio show #TheHappyHourOnAir! For the past two years, alongside his record label, XDM Records, Broz has been championing the Latin dance music scene. His radio show has uniquely both brought global artists into the regional scene in Latin America and brought talented local producers and their music to the global scene. Read on to learn more about the milestone moment, some of the top artists in Latin America, and their exciting future!
 
Broz, thanks so much for joining us to celebrate 100 episodes of #TheHappyHourOnAir and a massive congrats to you!
Hola familia! Our pleasure to collaborate with people like you guys being the most relevant, realest, and best platform of music discovery out there. 
 
What does the milestone moment of 100 episodes mean to you? 
This milestone means a lot to us, really special. We've been working hard to share, express and transmit the amazing quality of music that exists in the Latin dance community. 
 
 
When you first started the show, what were your goals with it? How have those changed over time, and what do you think the future holds for the next 100 episodes?
Our radio experience started back in Monterrey, México along NRM Comunicaciones: Beat 90.1FM. Since 2012, our goal has always been to premiere the freshest music by delivering an entertaining session of 60 minutes for the audiences to discover new music or cool remixes throughout us. The first half is an in-house mix and the second part of the show is executed by a special guest. We've always been interested in pushing and developing our scene globally. 
 
Nowadays, being part of this new era with our new home DASH Radio, the family has grown and our global reach gets wider every Friday night. Dash Radio is a free premium radio with no commercials. You can find us in over 50 platforms including smart speakers, connected cars, mobile, smart TVs, and more. We celebrate 100 episodes with them.
 
About the future, we are just happy to keep delivering quality content and maturing with time. We've been adding new segments to the show like interviews and the 'Classic of the Week.' 
 
Thinking back, do you have a favorite episode or guest of the show? What made it special?
I'll say Steve Aoki's episode #096 was very special. We've always been a fan of him and his work as an artist, but don't get us wrong! We appreciate all artists that have been part of our story and have supported the Latin dance music movement. 
 
 
You loaded the 100th episode up with ID tracks! What can you share about some of the music in this episode?
Definitely a very special one! We had a good amount of unreleased music from Latin producers / artists. We love to do this and we'll keep doing it. I even dropped a new one upcoming March 19th – spring / summer vibes!
 
We invite you to check all of our episodes on 1001Tracklists here!
 
Talk to us some more about your record label XDM Records. How have you guys adjusted your release strategy over the last year, and what does the future hold in store?
XDM Records is a Latin dance music record label founded during Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) 2018, at the 1st LATAM-focused networking event that ever happened in ADE history.

A record label with more than 30 million total streams and clear vision of delivering entertainment and sharing quality music with very unique sounds to be spread around the world. Check all of the original tracks and official remixes here: bit.ly/DiscographyXDM 
 
The creative and wise use of folkloric Latin American elements is a good idea to make us happy and make us feel even more satisfied. Visit our website here: https://www.xdmrecords.comWith releases from artists such as Luciana, Drake Bell, Landis, Broz Rodriguez, Sinego, Fulanito, Mau Moctezuma, Erick T, Mr. Pig & more, we are proud to share our passion and art to the world.

We've been surfing with the non physical world. We love dancefloor tracks! But during 2020 and this year we have been releasing many chilled and easier listening kinds of music. We love that vibe too, but we will always be a fan of bangers. We just started a new chapter on Twitch. You can pass by anytime and say hi here: www.twitch.com/xdmrecords
 
XDM Records ASIA (@xdmrecords_asia) is happening as well. You'll hear more about it very soon.

 
Can you highlight three artists in Latin America that you think deserve some more attention? What makes them and their music stand out?
Uffff I can definitely mention many more than three artists but in this case I'll say the following: 
 
Mariana Bo: DJMag #44, amazing musician and violinist. One of the most powerful women in the world as said by Forbes Mexico. Great example of a talented Latin artist. 
 
Nitro Fun: He's the only Mexican artist signed to Monstercat. We're about to release music from him in Spanish soon. Millions of streams. 
 
Sinego: Elegant sound, original easy going bolero house. A great blend of Latin dance music. 
 
And as we look ahead for spring, what’s keeping you excited and motivated?
As partners of CAA-GBG agency in Mexico and LATAM, we can't wait for the world to reset and entertainment to come back to life. We miss you.
