DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid won Best DJ in Willamette Week's Best of Portland 2017 and 2016 Readers' Poll.
Take the sultry vibe of the Latin American Tropics, combine with the rhythm of India («Taal») and stir into Tropitaal, a Desi/Latino Soundclash where the hottest club sounds from India and Latin America go head to head in an all-night dance-off of epic proportions. Resident DJs Anjali & The Incredible Kid combine their deep passions and deep crates from across the spectrum of Latin, Indian and Caribbean vibes. (We are not talking Salsa, but Reggaeton, Moombahton, Digital Cumbia, 3Ball Guarachero, Latin Trap, Dembow and more.)
Daniela Karina channels underground diasporic club from around the world to share her vision of a polyrhythmic Pangaea with the dance floor, finding inspiration in emerging transcultural sounds and reinvented ancestral rhythms. She can be found bringing the fringes of global dance to the Pacific Northwest as a resident at Club Culo and Club Tropicana. As a facilitator at S1 and member of No Control Crew, she is dedicated to increasing the visibility of women and nonbinary folks in electronic music—through skill-sharing, equipment shares and creating opportunities via hosted workshops, lectures and curated events.
