Our global bass scene in LA is growing. Parties are rising with heavy subwoofers and sounds that by default will make your body move, even if you choose to just sit and watch the crowd dance, you’ll feel like stomping a finger, a hip, something. Subsuelo started at Eastside Luv in Boyle Heights, and even if sporadically it expands to other venues for a show with bigger capacity (Eastside Luv fits 100 people), the best way to have the full flamenco, hip hop, global bass, kuduro, etc Subsuelo experience is by visiting East LA.
This last edition of Subsuelo was rather special; first time having 2 female DJs. Sunny Z and Potira are both fitness gurus therefore they bring this amazing mix of heavy natural endorphins and sweaty beats. We traveled from global bass to baile funk, reggae and tracks that made your humble photographer stop and attempt to get down on the multiple corners that become tight and hot dance floors. To make the night even stronger the mcs, producers, activists Rebel Diaz joined showing us the global power of hip hop. A Subsuelo friend posted in the event invite the day after “That was Magic ❤ “.
Shout outs to Sweet Beats for coming along with her Sweet Beats truck! (is like a taco truck kinda, but with DJ gear and awesome selectors spinning on the street).
