Our tropical friends from Chicago, Itzi Nallah and the CumbiaSazo! crew have been touring westward and covering lots of land far and away from their Pilsen community in the Windy C.  The team’s been properly representing their phenomenal monthly that squeezes in over 800 party people often..and just about every time!  A growing name in the alternative latin and global bass spaces internationally, the CumbiaSazo! crew fundraised (SUPPORT!) and immediately set out on their powered by the people, Connection Tour in order to continue to build with supporting and like-minded collectives across the states.  We are most excited about this particular collaboration happening this Wednesday, September 16th, as CumbiaSazo! joins forces with our Boyle Heights fam SUBSUELO!  Bogart of Whiskey Barons also joins the party and the RSVP list is already hanging out the door at Eastside Luv Bar y Queso.  We took witness and participated in CumbiaSazo!’s party at Chicago’s Double Door and a couple of other events earlier this year and highly suggest this event LA!

After 10 years of hosting the biggest Weekly Afroboogie Ritual the West Coast has ever witnessed at Santa Monica’s Zanzibar, the beloved Afro Funké Soundsystem is moving forward and signing out from the club night that took much responsibility in reviving an entire scene.  Tonight the tribe reunites with past djs, musicians and the community, together, under the roof that we’ve all grooved below once before, one last time.  Beats of All-Nations would like to salute Jeremy Sole, Glenn Red, Rocky Dawuni and Cary Sullivan for staying true to the purpose and providing us with such a service.  Thank You!

Here is one of our favorite moments witnessed at AF, Cut Chemist (who will be in the house tonight), performing “Adidas to Addis” from the Sound of the Police release party live on One-Turntable and a loop pedal:
