According to the web stats, people still appear to be looking at this blog even though I have left Buenos Aires and cut down on the frequency of posts. Eventually I will get back to posting on a regular basis, but right now things like finding an apartment, visiting friends and family and eating as much Mexican food as possible are taking up way too much of my time.
I have also been busy working on this.
Some of you may have already noticed this party in the "Upcoming DJ Apperances" section of this blog, but allow me to elaborate. The short version is that Oro11 and I are starting up a new record label called Bersa Discos so we can begin giving some of the experimental cumbia sounds of Buenos Aires an official release. Now that we are both back in the United States, we also wanted to launch a monthly party to start sharing (imposing) these sounds on gringo dance floors. We have decided to call the party Tormenta Tropical and the first one is this Friday in San Francisco. All the information is on the above flyers but know that the night will feature a mix of cumbia, hip hop, electro, dancehall, baile funk and a smattering of other sounds, all of which will be highly danceable.
Those of you anywhere near San Francisco are highly encouraged to attend.
