ANDAZ is the West Coast’s longest-running Bhangra & Bollywood dance party, a transportive experience that has enraptured feverishly dancing Portland crowds for more than 12 years. (Beginning in March ANDAZ will occur the last Saturday of every month at the Analog Theater.)

ANDAZ is such a Portland institution it is mentioned in the travel guides Best Places Portland and the Moon Handbook Portland; fitting recognition for a monthly dance party entering its 13th year.

DJ ANJALI AND THE INCREDIBLE KID

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 onXRAY.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 and 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.

After making a name for themselves in their hometown’s raucous house party circuit, DJ Anjali & The Incredible Kid introduced the Portland, Oregon nightclub scene to the sounds of Bhangra, Bollywood and Global Bass on New Year’s Eve 2000. A series of residencies followed, beginning with a night at the legendary Blackbird, and the duo began hosting their ANDAZ dance parties in July of 2002. The party’s focus on hardcore Panjabi Bhangra and the latest electronic confections from the Bollywood film industry continue to pack the dance floor after 12 years. While ANDAZ was still in the bloom of youth, Anjali and The Kid founded the revolutionary dance night ATLAS (with co-host/DJ E3) at Holocene in November of 2003 to introduce Portland to Global Bass sounds such as: Balkan Beats, Reggaeton, Funk Carioca, 3Ball Guarachero, Digital Cumbia, Urban Desi, French and Arabic Hip-Hop, Rai N B, Reggada, Dembow, Dubstep, Kuduro, Merengue Urbano and a host of other local and diasporic future musics. ATLAS was a vital party in Portland nightlife and the Global Bass scene internationally for more than nine years and remains the longest-running night in Holocene’s history. In 2013 Anjali and The Kid initiated TROPITAAL: A Desi Latino Soundclash, their latest project.

hey have supported artists as diverse as Digable Planets, Balkan Beat Box, Major Lazer, Skrillex, A Tribe Called Red, DJ Spooky, Tigerstyle, Boban i Marco Markovic Orkestar, Delhi 2 Dublin, Sleigh Bells, Glitch Mob, State of Bengal, MSTRKRFT, Karsh Kale, DJ Rekha, CeU, Antibalas, Dengue Fever, Blockhead, Soulico, The Decemberists, Rupa & the April Fishes, Gold Panda, DJ Marcelinho Da Lua, Saini Surinder, Washed Out, Toy Selectah, Pink Martini, Quantic, Opiuo, Bonobo, Extra Golden, Maga Bo, Poirier, Plastician, Flying Lotus, Ming & FS, Joro-Boro, Kultur Shock, Ghostland Observatory, J-Boogie, and Nickodemus from Turntables on the Hudson.

    ???! Why do I want to win? Please. Well, for starters:
    Because it’ll leave more money to pay the babysitter so I can stay loooonger, so I can really drink in the most soul stirring dance music my body has known (well since 2003 when I discovered the magic) ensuring I (and my friends) will survive the time she’s away, which may include, I imagine, my bday! No Bday DJ Anjali dance party for me?!!! Phew, breathing breathing. So excited for Saturday! You know you wanna! xoT
