Calentura: Global Bassment feat. Dengue Dengue Dengue, Los Rakas, Tropkillaz [video]

Calentura took things to the next level last week, March 12th, when the monthly party by Subsuelo and Late Night Laggers moved further east to the El Rey Theatre. The reason? To celebrate the release of Calentura: Global Bassment on Fania Records, which I wrote about in LA Weekly.

The night included guests Peruvian Dark cumbia duo Dengue Dengue Dengue, Panamanian rudeboys Los Rakas, and Brazilian Trap duo Tropkillaz. Check out the video of each act below. Hella photos coming soon.

Cut Chemist at Calentura

My friends at Subsuelo have, for a little over a year now, switched things up with a new format. Their days at Eastside Luv, sadly, came to a gradual end after they began Calentura at Los Globos thanks to a partnership with the Late Night Laggers crew, Fania Records, and Jack Daniels.

The new(-ish) party still carries that Latino flavor but adds some ratchetero, electro sounds that would’ve been too much for their Boyle Heights’ digs. Calentura has allowed them to expand their variety of guest stars, a feat Subsuelo successfully pulled off in the past with one-off parties at the Bootleg Theatre and other venues. Their first party this year featured Mark De-Clive Lowe, Banginclude, and living legend Cut Chemist (some photos below).

Calentura has already announced another amazing lineup for the year: their March party will be at the El Rey Theatre and feature Los Rakas, Dengue Dengue Dengue (making a full-length set debut after their too-short set at Supersonico last year), and headliners Tropkillaz.

2016 is looking great for Calentura.

Update (02/16): Calentura will host Buraka Som Sistema at The Roxy in April.
