Pantropical: tropical party night in Rotterdam with cumbia, latin bass, & more!
On the back of our Pan-Afro futuristic October edition, we turn our focus on chunky Latin American sounds; Cumbia (vintage/nu, Chicha, Sonidera, Villera), Latin Bass, and a pinch of bachata and merengue.
OSCILADOR BASS (MX | latin bass mexico)
This friendly Cumbia-bot has housewives and washing machines alike obsessing over him all across Latin America. Now his mission is to make crowds in the rest of the world follow suit during its upcoming EU / Asia trek. Oscilador Bass is all about creating the hottest Latin Bass, expertly mixing güiro rasps, cowbells and congas with the best spatial sound, all assembled with mucho amor in Mexico!
SONIDO MARTINES (AR)
Sonido Martines is the Argentine figurehead of the South American cumbia scenes. In his dj mixes, Argentine and Colombian Cumbia meet vintage Vallenato and Chicha, and Dub hits upon electronic music. He is a tireless seeker of lost vinyl records and remixer of Cumbia classics, shaking up the dancefloors with a wide selection of tropical music from all over Latin America. His DJ sets feature a wide array of vintage psychedelic cumbia and other tropical beat music, almost doubling as history lessons.
LEBLANC (BE | Rebel Up! / Pantropical)
Last seen & heard in February deconstructing the dancefloor at Pantropical with Pinchado and DØG. LeBlanc is one of the most pleasantly obsessed and knowledgeable purveyors of Non-western, tropical music for the Benelux. Together with Rebel Up! / Nightshop’s Sebcat he’s the co-curator for many great tropical events in Brussels (Recyclart, Beursschouwburg, Les Ateliers Claus, Bonnefooi etc.), and co-hosts the Nightshop radioshow on Radio Campus. Despite the dizzying number of subgenres LeBlanc uses for his DJ mixes, they’re always focused and highly dancable. Tonight’s set will include digital cumbia, dancehall, reggaeton and other global bass.
NO MUNCHI (NL/DO)
Spins his fave vintage Dominican tunes, including Bachata, Merengue, and Palo; reverb and effect drenched, to make things a bit more compatible with the other sounds on offer on this night.
CHRIS BRUINING (NL) & NIQUE QUENTIN (DE) – live percussion
The DJ sets will be spiced up with skilful live percussion played by Rotterdam based percussionists Chris Bruining (Gallowstreet, La Banda Fantastica), and Nique Quentin (Los Paja Brava / Doktor Schnitt). Chris recently played live with Dick El Demasiado at Pantropical in September.
