Take the sultry vibe of the Latin American Tropics, combine with the rhythm of India (“Taal”) and stir into Tropitaal, a Desi/Latino Soundclash where the hottest club sounds from India and Latin America go head to head in an all-night dance-off of epic proportions.

Resident DJs Anjali & The Incredible Kid and guests combine their deep passions and deep crates from across the spectrum of Caribbean, Indian and Latin vibes.

UPROOT ANDY is a Brooklyn based DJ/Producer and co-founder of Que Bajo, the NYC based party that helped pioneer the so called Global Bass movement with its all embracing approach to global electronic music. Originally developing his culture crossing DJ sets at the Mehanata Bulgarian Bar before beginning the Que Bajo parties, Uproot Andy’s unique sound of bass heavy and melodic dance music, first began appearing outside the club on mixtapes such as Guacharaca Migration, called ‘one of the best mixtapes of 2008’ by New York Magazine, as well as on early releases by the Bersa Discos and ZZK record labels. Since then he has toured extensively in Europe and across the Americas appearing in diverse settings from Colombia’s Carnaval de Barranquilla to New York’s Central Park Summerstage to the Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards in London. Andy and Que Bajo co-founder Geko Jones represented their global bass sound at the Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash in NYC and they have recently launched Que Bajo Records to release a steady stream of remixes and club edits that give the now famous party its signature sound.


DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have spent more than a decade igniting dance floors with cutting edge music not limited by borders or language. They host the longest-running Bhangra and Bollywood party on the West Coast, co-founded the Pacific Northwest’s first Global Bass dance party and host two weekly radio shows on XRAY.FM and KBOO.FM.

Few DJs can be said to have changed the sound of their city but that is exactly what DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have accomplished since they first introduced Portland, Oregon nightclub audiences to the many varied sounds of Global Bass at a raucous New Year’s Eve debut in 2000. They are most known for incinerating dance floors with the heavy dance floor artillery of South Asia, but the duo scour the globe for any hard-hitting music that combines local music traditions with window-rattling production. Anjali and The Kid regularly perform at festivals including five sets at the Sasquatch! Music Festival tenth anniversary where they headlined the dance tent opening night. They have performed at festivals such as Decibel, MusicfestNW, Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration, Beloved, Photosynthesis, Fairytale, Kaleidoscope and the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. The duo travel to perform in cities such as New York City, Chicago, Washington DC, San Francisco and Vancouver, BC to headline parties such as Basement Bhangra, iBomba, Bhangrateque, Ottomania and Non Stop Bhangra.

    I want to go because: steamy! And because Uproot Andy is a beast. I go to a lot of shows, but there aren’t enough in town with this sort of global vibe curation. Can’t wait!!!

    I want to go cause it’s my birthday!

    Winning this would be a great contribution to Friends That Dance, a facebook group page I belong to, along with other Portland area vegans and AR activists, that I’ve gone to some wonderful events with that is sadly becoming less active. Winning tickets to this event and sharing them first come with the group could put some life back into it and get people excited about posting dancing events again.

    I’m looking for something to do this weekend and this looks fun! I do enjoy Bollywood dancing!

    Looking forward to the Friday 7/26 event at the Analog. Great cultural experience!!!

    I love to dance!

    I’m very excited for this, I have I think right around a dozen people that I’m making sure go to this on Friday. I once attended the Tropitaal event at Holocene, but was way to tempted to cut it short and run to Sassys. I want to redeem that night and dance my face off this round. :D

    want to go!!

    I’m really excited to finally get someone from QUE BAJO to spin music in Portland, OR. We need more spaces in town to host events such as these and to have djs that can identify with the music culturally and ethnically, suuuuper important. My friends and I are looking to go and have a blast dancing it up with other folks of color, this event is about bringing together two different but similar cultures & música <3

    I want to go to there!

  13. Jennifer July 24, 2014 at 3:11 pm #

    Would love to dance my ass off at this!

  14. Danielle July 24, 2014 at 4:59 pm #

    This sounds like an awesome show.

  15. Cee July 24, 2014 at 6:43 pm #

    Portland without spice & sazón might as well be Whitelandia. That might work 364 days of the year, but not this night! Here’s what I’d bring with me: a mix of Mexican, Ghanaian, and Cuban swag to eat up those jams on the dance floor. NEED I SAY MORE?!

  16. Adam July 24, 2014 at 8:13 pm #

    Sounds absolutely amazing! I would love to take my buddy to this- he’s worked too many hours lately!

  17. Kiran July 25, 2014 at 1:34 am #

    ‘Cause life is too short to not get down to the baddest beats in town this Friday night!

  18. george July 25, 2014 at 8:18 am #
