the guayabera never wrinkles
Notes from elcanyonazo on the last global crew party at M Bar… shoot!!! I like my photos here! kept the tone, feeling, mood of the zombie night… beautiful girls al size and color, hot DJs, fresh tunes:
i was expecting a good party at M bar this Tuesday … me + 3 dope diskjocks, couple drummers, buncha beautiful women and bar owner with nothing to lose, notorious for skirting the rules about when to close + stop serving liquor … yeah i can work with that
but DAMN i didnt know it was gonna be THAT good … i mean like best party of the year. i should be kinda salty cuz i straight up LOST the selector battle against Gozar, Gusto and Bennett. Aight maybe no one lost, but Bennett definitely won. Serious props … I spun after his epic set, and could do nothing but play tha payaso, silly hard jams for a zombie dance pit … I went on at 230am and kept a solid 95% dancefloor retention rate during my hour
—-> go look at Farah Sosa’s photos … they’re amazing
that was 2 fania hats ago
MAKU a badass band. Hard to categorize. Not rootsy, not electronic, not straight dance/drum circle, but not exactly avantgardge jazz either.
Because of a funny crowd crossover, I played some poppy damn music at this party. Nice to have Gato drummin at my left to give it some flavor though.
What a joy DJing alongside Quantic. He’s my fav 21s century musician, and I always look forward to when dude comes thru LA. I had just seen him in Mexico a few weeks prior for Vive Latino, and got to open for Ondatropica when we came with the full band last summer. This was just a solo DJ trip for Mr. Will Holland, but he brought some bangin 7”s as expected. Todd Simon hopped up on the smokey stage for some collabs. I gave him a test pressing of the Subsuelo 7” since the records werent ready yet. I also played some really weird music, if I remember correctly.
i DJ’d this party last year and now we back with the full SUBSUELO crew for round dos.
cool venue in midcity, and playing alongside some of my fav LA compatriots - Las Cafeteras and Ceci Bastida
and yeah Chivas, my fav whiskey. mmmm.
Subsuelo is teaming up with the fine folks at Remezcla for a FREE PARTY in Los Angeles on Saturday May 18th.
Sponsored by Chivas with some fine free drinks, and featuring performance by two more of LA’s best: Las Cafeteras and Ceci Bastida.

tak about pan comido. easiest party of my life. dubclub already brings a crowd, then we had an open bar for the first 2 hours, and then NORTEC + BUYE ? haha yeah i can work with that
played some wacky jams too … supermambo violento, if i remember correctly.
normally backstage/VIP is boring bullshit, but with buye and all our crew, there was jam up there which was just as good as the show on stage.

this party was great. even though i ended up DJing at the same time as Nickodemus, in the other room, and pretty much missed his whole set.
