Living in Los Angeles really transformed my life path. One of those major spaces for transformation was at the infamous reggae night, Dub Club. You always knew Wednesdays was the place to get dubbed out with your friends on a consistent basis.
Subsuelo is deep for me on another level, because it’s a party born out of the coming together of friends during the time period of 2008 – 2010. It’s been dope to see the collective get bigger and better, continuing to create space for global bass.
So you KNOW I’m super psyched that Los Rakas will be playing tomorrow as part of the Dub Club vs. Subsuelo party. The circles, the cycles!
Check this piece in Hoy Los Angeles about Raka Rich and Raka Dun: “Los Rakas: El nuevo sabor del rap.” On their song “Africana” – my personal favorite off their album “El Negrito Dun Dun & Ricardo“ – they told Hoy:
“Decidimos que necesitábamos hacerle una canción a nuestras abuelas, nuestras mamás y nuestras tías.” (Translation: We decided that we need to make a song for our grandmothers, mothers and aunts.)
And to make matters even more dubbed out, Cypress Hill’s B-Real will be interviewing the guys LIVE on his BReal.TV at 4 PM PST. Tune-in!
