friday march 8 | piña

La Junta’s ‘PIÑA’ party is back this month on Friday March 8th! Our man Yukicito is out of town for this one, currently making a long awaited trip back home to Osaka, Japan, but we’ve got some fine talent coming through to keep the music just as fresh as ever. In the main room, DJ RAW of LA’s Fuego party makes his debut in front of the dance floor at El Dorado DTLA. In the Stowaway Room, aka our ‘Coco Lounge,’ French label boss DJ SEB KRIMI of Radio Krimi Records (Chamonix, Mont Blanc) returns to LA to rock with our crew for his first time. If you remember the remix of the tune ‘Sou’ by the African band WÜIWA that DJ degruvme and I released in February of 2017, you may remember that it was done on the Radio Krimi Records imprint.

As always, our PIÑA event is free so come through ready to boogie!

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

La Junta crew (incl. yours truly, Glenn Red) here checkin’ in with you during these mad times. The good news is that 2018 is coming to an end and we’re about halfway to having that opportunity to make things right again. The bad news is that we’re still only about halfway there. Nevertheless, it’s that time of year to focus on being with family and friends and to take the time to celebrate life together. With that in mind, we’ve accepted the call to host our second PIÑA NEW YEARS EVE celebration at EL DORADO DTLA!!

Featuring two rooms of music with:
LA JUNTA SOUND SYSTEM (Yukicito, Glenn Red, Degruvme)
AL JACKSON (Soul Children, Juju)
KRISTI LOMAX (KPFK 90.7FM)
&
a live dance performance by:
SAMBA ROYALE
feat. Samba USA Queen 2015 NICOLEA PETTIS
+
complimentary Champagne Toast at midnight!

We had an absolute blast last year and can’t wait to do it with you all again. And let your friends know…we’ll be one of the friendliest (and most affordable) NYE events in town! Make plans to celebrate with us!

9pm-2am | $10 all night

friday november 9 | piña

PIÑA returns to Downtown Los Angeles on the second Friday of November with two special guests gracing the decks! First, in the main room, the main man from LA’s wildly popular tropical bass collective, Late Night Laggers…CHABOI!! Then, in the Coco Lounge, long-time house music connoisseur, BRAD KENT of Melt LA!

And just to keep things fresh but consistent, I’ve also given the flyer a slightly new look with a new background. I’m hoping this also sparks some cool new design ideas as the event continues to morph with the fast-moving musical landscape in LA.

See you on November 9th!

friday september 14 | piña
