I’m so excited about May’s installment of #FUTUREROOTS. On Thursday, SOB’s will welcome A Tribe Called Red + DJ Javier Estrada – a NYC debut for both (also joining the two is Philly-based DJ Dirty South). A reminder about the series:
#FUTUREROOTS celebrates a New World of sounds we know, rhythms being taken to dizzying new heights and varieties by a generation of DJs and musicians who have had the world at their fingertips (AKA the internet). This “re-discovery” where musicians from Latin America to DJs in the United States and Europe explore their own roots, collaborate with others halfway across the planet, and blend the sounds they know so well like Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electronic and Club music of every variety; this is a series for that New World sound as it continues to grow. Past artists: Pernett, Que Bajo!?, Los Rakas, Dre Skull, Flama, Nomadic Massive, Zuzuka Poderosa, Adeline, House of Waters, Blitz the Ambassador, Munchi, Andrea Balency, Monsieur Periné, Il Abanico, Solo Dame Indie Pop!
This is a line-up that I’ve always envisioned #FUTUREROOTS would be about: supporting amazing artists who collaborate frequently thru the internetz – Remezcla just premiered Part I of a Video Trilogy between them called “Sopranos Azteca” – to explore, re-define, and re-distribute the rhythms and traditions of where they are from, FOR THE WORLD.

In 2008, DJ’s NDN and Bear Witness founded A Tribe Called Red adding two-time Canadian DMC champ, DJ Shub to the crew in 2010. ATCR creates an never before heard sound made up of a wide variety of musical styles ranging from Hip-Hop, Dance Hall, Electronic, and their own mash-up of club and Pow Wow music, known as Pow Wow Step that is quickly gaining respect from all kinds of communities from all around the world.

Mexico’s most exciting new producer, Javier Estrada delivers everything from tribal to moombahton to pre-hispanic dubstep in a unique, fun-loving, high-energy and ever-tropical manner. Javier’s prolific production portfolio is a tour-de-force through the best that Latin America has to offer in this new burgeoning tropicalized electronica scene and a show of all the possibilities that exist within the ever-expanding world of tropical bass.
DIRTY SOUTH JOE (Philadelphia, PA)
Philly DJ/Producer Dirty South Joe’s been grinding for years. He spun his first show at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club (between sets by U.K. shoegaze bands Ride and Lush) in 1990, and has balled in Philly for about 10 years. He played some of the legendary Hollertronix parties at the Ukie back in the day, is currently a Mad Decent Mondays regular and is opening for Diplo at Union Transfer this Thursday. He runs his label, Cool Records and just released “Luvstep,” his collaborative project with Philly’s Flufftronix which is out now!
