piña | friday march 9

Heyyy! It’s a PIÑA week! Come boogie with us at El Dorado DTLA this Friday March 9th as we celebrate our talented brother YUKICITO’s birthday!! CHIEF BOIMA of INTL BLK will be on the decks as the special guest deejay in the main room, adding a whole lotta pan-African musical love to the festivities, while my old partner in crime from Ecléctica, DJ REYES (Forró in LA) joins us in the Coco Lounge. Along with the LA JUNTA SOUND SYSTEM, the music is gonna be bananas (and pineapples) all night!

latitude | friday march 2

With last week’s mini vacation in the SoCal mountains, aka Big Bear, I sadly had to skip my February installment of LATITUDE at General Lee’s Cocktail House in LA’s Chinatown district. However, I’ll be back twice in the month of March, with the first getdown this FRIDAY MARCH 2ND! I’m looking forward to steering the ship all night as we once again take a dynamic trek through jazz, hip-hop and global grooves. It starts around 9:30pm (although I publish 10:00) and it’s always FREE. Wake the town and tell the people!
