Earlier today San Francisco based Dj Joaquin Bartra dropped a winter mix for Palms Out that has been our soundtrack for yet another cold night. From the first track of the mix, a summery miami bass groover by Miguel Campbell on Hot Creations, we knew we could expect something dope to warm us up from one half of Dj duo SOSOSOON. A quick look at the tracklist (peek it after the jump), packed with some of our favourite tracks of 2011 and ’12, got us even more excited so we caught up with Bartra (as a follow up to his Palms Out interview) to find out a little more about what made him tick through the frostiest season.


AO-AO: If you went into hibernation for winter what food/drink would you hoard to wake up to?

Joaquin Bartra: Tequila. Tequila helps you wake up better than coffee. And corn. I fucking love corn.

AO-AO: How do you stay warm in the cold?

JB: Tequila. Tequila helps you stay warm better than a down jacket.

AO-AO: Whats good for us to do in San Fran during winter?

JB: Going to a tequila bar in the Mission, or buying a bottle of tequila and drinking all of it at Dolores Park.

AO-AO: What helped you to get into the mood for this mix?

JB: I was out in New York drinking tequila all night, then came back home around 4am and recorded this.

AO-AO: What are your plans for 2012?

JB: To stay alive while continuing to spread my love for tequila around the world.
