Born in London and based in Paris, Hugo Mendez is the co-founder of the renowned Sofrito label. Responsible for a huge amount of re-issues, edits and compilations of music from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Bringing together a deep musical knowledge and extensive travels with a sharp ear for dancefloor-rocking tunes, his DJ sets draw on everything from vintage bassline Soukous to dubplate edits of Caribbean Cadence and boogie, passing by DIY electro and forward looking sounds to create a unique balance of hypnotic and percussive rhythms that he regularly showcases at clubs and festivals around the world. With Nouvelle Ambiance, his latest label project on the African Paris diaspora scene of the 1980’s, he continues the work of Sofrito, celebrating cross-cultural collaborations via reissue projects and contemporary productions with a geographically diverse group of musicians.
