All Summer long my Subsuelo homies have been throwing down weekly Sunday soirees at Caña Rum Bar in downtown LA. The spot is tiny, but the place gets packed every week without fail from 3 til 9 (til 2am on bank holidays), and the vibes are always super high! This past weekend was my turn to curate the DJs, and I called upon a super talented list of friends to come through. It was a big success, and I want to extend HUGE thanks to Xandão, Brooklyn Shanti, Ericalandia, Sumohair, and DJ NADI who all killed it! Also biggups to the dancers and party people who make it what it is. In the immediate aftermath I asked Nadi to put together some gems from his set to bless this site once again- including one of his own new mashups which often set off the crowd during my own sets. You can check more pics from the talented Farahstop right here. Without further ado, words from the man himself:
“Nuff Shazam Selectas inna di dancehall…here are a few that could prove a little more difficult to come upon…Martinique dancehall, Soca/Calypso, Qgom, UK Funky, Congolese bass and soul and other assorted goodies”.
