ANDAZ is not only the longest-running Desi party on the West Coast, it is the longest-running Desi party West of the Hudson river.

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 that recently celebrated its 13th anniversary.

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.

    I love Desi music and consider these two DJs to be some of the best in the country. Also I’m a dance till the music stops kind of person. Also my birthday is the 24th!

    I’ve been wanting to catch DJ Anjali and the Kid for years, but when I stumbled onto their show on my beloved X-RAY.fm a couple of months ago, I was like: Self, make this happen! (I don’t have much of a budget for show, but I’d buy tickets and go no matter what.)

    I love trying new venues and this has been on my list since I moved her a few months ago. Now that I finally have a kickass dancing partner that likes to dance till we shut the place down like I do, I’d love to attend this!
