Cali-Hustle! 07’08’14

Cali Hustle has been happening for a while, yet I made a stop until recently… tsk tsk tsk.

Hosted by the resident DJ Miss Sunny Z dropping the grown and sexy cuts and resident band QVLN performing live with full band, Cali Hustle can turn The Virgil into a hot California night any time of the year.   I am uncertain if it is due to the flattering looks of Quetzal Guerrero holding it down behind his blue violin, or is it because of Miss Sunny Z’s have body shaker tunes, OR is it thanks to the love that one to another shout out through out the night (damn lovely!) but the majority of the audience is formed by beautiful women dancing the night away… men, you are sleeping.


This party travels to the North and deep down in the South of the continent with sounds of Afrobeat, Samba, Soul, Cumbia, Salsa, Reggaeton, Rock, Hip Hop, Reggae, Funk. QVLN masterfully switches from folk and rock to heavy hip hop bangers with smooth transitions keeping you moving nonstop. This is an experience that needs to be felt live and the opportunity is every 2nd Tuesday of the month.

See QVLN’s new video “Burning Fire” … it is sizzling.

Musica Roots Magazine Presents LOS MASTER PLUS + Niña Dioz, 05’08’14

Musica Roots is a quickly growing latin culture magazine featuring lifestyle, music and art relevant to the latino community.  They took over Los Globos in Silverlake to host a dance party that would make the stiffest person in the room shake inevitably and at the same time, it was a great opportunity to celebrate the preview of  the official release of the printed preview issue of Musica Roots Magazine.  Niña Dioz, now based in Los Angeles brought all her Monterey hip hop firing up the night with extravagant beats, live percussion and her own unique style that even blended a cumbia at the end of her performance.

Once the crowd got warmed up, it was the turn of Los Master Plus, a duo from Guadalajara from whom we know only so much but they claim to be the kings of the party and have proved it with their wild live drum machine and synth beats making covers in Spanish of the clubbiest club songs (think One More Time from Daft Punk with sort of Norteño voice tones… sort of) blended with: Cumbia.   It was pretty fun to witness the fans jumping on stage eager to rub their butts with “sexy” moves in mini skirts against this exotic pair!  You can find even more photos of the night at FARAHSTOP, the music photography archive.

3 de Mayo Moombahton Massive

Moombahton Massive is brought to you by Nadastrom and Sabo. Moombahton Massive is the ultimate moombahton live experience, showcasing the music’s sound and movement.  In this occasion, they brought the party to Los Angeles bringing a crowd eager to dance at Los Globos.  

The night developed with the first floor tended by DJ Sabo, Nadastrom and Jeremy Sole and the second floor with San Francisco’s global-cumbia party Tormenta Tropical lead by Oro11 and DJ Theory and also LA’s global bass ambassadors Subsuelo DJs Gozar, Canyonazo and Gazoo.  As a special treat Brooklyn Shanti (NYC) was in town and hoped on the mic each now and then to keep the crowd getting down!  Yeah, no 5 de Mayo celebration here, an awesome line up for a 3 de Mayo hot extravaganza!  For even more photos of the night please visit FARAHSTOP the music photography archive.
