Playa del Carmen, Mexico -- With 120 to 150 beats per minute, techno blasted throughout both Fusion Beach Club and Blue Parrot during the ENTER events. A techno militia was formed through a solid black circle temporary tattooed on attendees' bodies as identification of their passion for the infamous European-based label.

Electronic influencer, Richie Hawtin, ENTER's mastermind, laid down flawless sets during each event causing fans to jack their bodies to each bump in the bass as synths, keys, drums, and samples filled the room with mechanical melodies.

One of the most precious performances was found through Matador's live set. Patrons huddled close to see the Irish master at work. With little details permeating within the mix, and deep, dark, trippy bumps in the beats, it's no wonder he has been welcomed to the Minus family.

BPM may be over, but that doesn't mean your time in Mexico has to come to an end. Unwind after 10-days of non-stop partying in nearby Tulum. For travel tips, hotel recommendations, and BPM artist-approved places to eat, shop, and explore, head to the last section of our BPM Travel Guide.
