Tropitaal A Desi-Latino Soundclash with hosts and resident DJs Anjali and The Incredible Kid and special guest DJ Casual Aztec (Club Culo/Judy on Duty /Black Book Thursdays/Club Destiny/No Control/Bridge Club)

Anjali and The Incredible Kid won BEST DJ in Willamette Week’s Best of Portland Readers’ Poll 2016.

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 combine their deep passions and deep crates from across the spectrum of Latin, Indian and Caribbean vibes. (We are not talking Salsa, but Reggaeton, Moombahton, Digital Cumbia, 3Ball Guarachero, Latin Trap, Dembow and more.)



DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have spent more than fifteen years 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, Soul’d Out, Portland International Film Festival, Fairytale Music Festival, 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.

They have supported artists as diverse as A Tribe Called Red, Tigerstyle, Balkan Beat Box, Major Lazer, Skrillex, Flying Lotus, Saini Surinder, Digable Planets, Delhi 2 Dublin, Sleigh Bells, Glitch Mob, Dengue Fever, Blockhead, Uproot Andy, Hindi Zahra, Toy Selectah, Quantic, Opiuo, Bonobo, Gold Panda, Maga Bo, Poirier, Plastician, Kultur Shock, Ghostland Observatory, State of Bengal, Karsh Kale, DJ Rekha, DJ Spooky, CeU, Antibalas, Nickodemus & Joro-Boro.
