“Gang Gang Dance started as free-form noiseniks; over the years, they’ve managed to mellow out without moving to the center– evolving into purveyors of pan-cultural body-music, marrying club beats with lyrics about communing with the dead.
Like Arthur Russell before them, they give equal floorspace to the spiritual and the sensual. By those loopy standards, Eye Contact– the group’s latest album– is Gang Gang Dance’s finest, weirdest, and most uplifting statement yet…this is not a pop record, per se, but the stuff of pop records collected, melted down, and then dribbled Jackson Pollock-style onto a canvas.” – Pitchfork, Best New Music
Discos Discos Dance Party info…
Starting with September 2010’s inaugural dance party, Discos Discos has quickly become one of Portland’s savviest vessels of global bass musics. Djs Zac Eno and Rumtrigger are introducing South and Central America’s Cumbia, Baile Funk, Champeta, Reggaeton, Guarachero and African styles such as Kwaito, Shangaan Electro, Soca, and Kuduro to Portland’s busiest and subsequently most diverse dance floors!
However, with new genres come new talents not only showcased by Rumtrigger and Eno, the monthly at Holocene has also introduced new VJ artists mainstays Trance Forever, and brought in the phenomenal electro band, Los Macuanos from Tijuana, Mexico (January). With a devout following already in tow, Discos Discos has moved to the weekend to expand its own culture as rapidly as the genre and world itself.
