Just a few weeks after mixing a dance floor set at his monthly Thursday night event in Echo Park, I’ll once again join my good amigo DJ Manofor a cyberspace excursion on NuTropic Radio on the popular, long-running LA-based platform, dublab.com. Tune in from 4pm to 6pm PDT as we both get warmed up for appearances later that evening as Afro Funké goes off in Venice (see my next post)!
I love hangin’ out at their events whenever I get the chance, but it’s been a minute since I’ve gotten down with DJ’s Mano, Seano & Maple Syrup of the NuTropic crew. The last time I did it was as part of La Junta Sound System back in 2017, hmm…maybe even 2016 as one of their first bookings. This time it goes down this Thursday May 2nd at The Short Stop in Echo Park. Come hit the dance floor (and/or the bar) with us!
Check out the NuTropic 046 Event Page.

We hope that this twelfth month is treating you well so far and that the holidays keep bringing that quality time with the people close to you. With La Junta’s PIÑA monthly coming up on the second Friday of the month–December14–we’re having our good friends come through to do a one night only takeover of the main room! Please come out and greet a couple of our outstanding deejay homies who respectively hold down two of our favorite Latin/World music nights to attend:
MANO (Nu Tropic, LA/OAK/CHI)
FUNKY CARAMELO (Cumbiatón, LA)
La Junta crew will be in Tucson, AZ on this night, scheduled for our own friendly takeover of the awesome El Tambó event, so we’ll be with you in spirit, sharing the music we love on the road. We’re leaving you in highly capable hands, so come out to El Dorado DTLA and dance your pineapples off like you do! We’ll see you again on NYE 😉
