Celebrating 7 years of outernational hiphop & global bass, DJ Canyon Cody will be joined by Gnotes, Afro DZ ak, Mandeep Sethi and Brooklyn Shanti for a tropical g-funk bday celebration. Founded in the Boston summer of 2004, the Gnawledge crew will perform live music from their upcoming Bengali boombap proyecto, debut new remixes from their flamenco album Granada Doaba, and bump low-end cumbia re-edits from their monthly East Los Angeles party SUBSUELO.
Need I say more? Readers here should need no intro. Gnawledge be producing. Check the latest —
El Freaky is a renowned DJ/VJ collective hailing from Bogotá. They’re up in these parts on part of a tour which brought them to NYC this past week for the LAMC, where, based on my Twitter feed, it sounds like they tore things up at Que Bajo ?! last night. We’re humbly thrilled, as usual, to be in such striking distance from the Big Apple that we can get a crew like this up to Boston for a night. It’s bound to be a legendary session; do please sweat it out with us if you’re around & down.
To top things off, the evening will have a proper Master of Ceremonies in one MC Zulu, the irrepressible Panamanian-by-way-of-Chicago emcee/deejay who you’ve no doubt heard riding a banging electro-soca-bashment tune or two while walking like a motherfucking champion. I can’t even tell you. We’re gonna party like it’s 1999, which, since the world’s supposed to end next year, seems just about right.
Oh, and just so you how much we care, our flyer swag is on double-time this week (thx, tim) —
