About this artist

DJ Python’s innovative “deep reggaeton” sound blends smooth, spacious synth pads with broken, dembow-inspired rhythms. The New York-based producer’s releases, including 2017′s Dulce Compañia and 2022′s Club Sentimientos, Vol. 2, have been showered with praise from the underground dance music community. He has also released music with Ela Minus (2022 EP Corazón) and with Florentino and Kelman Duran as the group Sangre Nueva.
Based in the Ridgewood neighborhood of Queens, Brian Piñeyro released music under several different monikers before moving forward with the DJ Python project. He recorded an extremely limited single with Circuit des Yeux in 2014, then issued a lo-fi house 12” as DJ Wey in 2015. The first DJ Python EP, ¡Estéreo Bomba! Vol. 1, came out on Anthony Naples’ Proibito imprint in 2016. Additional EPs as DJ Wey, Luis, and Deejay Xanax followed throughout the rest of the year, blending deep house, breaks, and electro. His first full-length as DJ Python, Dulce Compañia, was the debut release from Naples’ Incienso label in 2017. A deeper refinement of the first Python EP’s sound, the album was an immediate success, establishing Piñeyro as one of the most forward-thinking producers of his time. A slightly more club-tooled EP, Derretirse, arrived on Dutch label Dekmantel in 2019. Python appeared on Ghostly International’s Ghostly Swim 3 compilation and remixed songs by Klein Zage and Carmen Villain before his second full-length, the continuously mixed Mas Amable, arrived on Incienso in 2020.
Sangre Nueva, Piñeyro’s trio with Kelman Duran and Florentino, made their debut with the 2021 EP Goteo. The three-track Club Sentimientos, Vol. 2 appeared in 2022. DJ Python and Anthony Naples curated the ambient compilation Air Texture VIII. Corazón, an EP with Ela Minus, was released by Smugglers Way, and the Luis EP 057 (Schwyn) appeared on AD 93. Additionally, Sangre Nueva resurfaced with the single “Moskito”/“Tu Forma.” ~ Paul Simpson
