Thank You to all that came through in February and shared the evening with our special guest DJ ASKARI. He truly rocked the house with his special blend of Funk Tribal mixes indicative of his Central American roots and broad international influences. The family at Ecléctica keeps growing as we seek to showcase local talent amongst this vast creative pool that is a part of this L.A. metropolis. This month we are looking forward to sharing the evening with DJ BENNETT (Amoeba Music).
A lifelong music lover and DJ for over a decade, Bennett has been spinning a wide variety of sounds since he began. Soul, Funk, Hip Hop, House, Cumbia, Afrobeat, Bossa Nova, Baile Funk, Baltimore Club, Brass Band, Bounce, Dubstep, Dancehall, Moombahton, and Salsa have all influenced his selections. His sets combine time honored party rock classics, familiar favorites, tasteful remixes and future sounds from many genres to create a unique and soulful sound all his own. A passion for the craft of mixing has led to opening slots for Charles Bradley, Grupo Fantasma, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Ave, the Skatalites, Mad Professor, Barrington Levy, the B Side Players, Jeremy Sole, Sabo, Benjamin LeBrave, Groundation, DJ Magneto, Kid Gusto, DJ Gozar, Canyon Cody, DJ Gazoo, Brooksie, and many more. You can listen to some of his mixes and live sets at http://soundcloud.com/deejay-bennett or follow the occasional tweet at twitter@DeeJayBennett.
