Pachanka Music Culture & 8track present ELEMENTO, a monthly Latin Global music series that showcases alternative latin dance, hip hop, cumbia and bass music in Chicago. For the first installment of this Latin music series–we welcome DJ, producer and nu-cumbia pioneer El Dusty to downtown Chicago’s Lite Nightclub.
Gozamos has a couple of pairs of VIP tickets to give away. Ready to win them? See below…
El Dusty’s self-taught approach is as collaborative as it is singular, drawing from a crate-digging and turntablist tradition that links Latin classics with the new genera- tion of bass-heavy soundsystem and hip-hop cultures. Critical acclaim has hailed El Dusty as Rolling Stone’s 10 New Artists You Need to Know, Billboard’s New Latin Act to Watch in 2016, and Pandora’s Latin Artists to Watch 2016. El Dusty’s aesthetic is an effortless rendering of his palette for old school sounds thanks to growing up in a home soundtracked by Tejano anthems, Chicano soul music, classic rock, ‘70s Latin soul.
This event will feature local DJ guests Future Rootz DJ’s, Bumbac Joe, and Charlie Glitch (Ghetto Division). Elemento will take place in Chicago’s bustling River North’s popular nightclub Lite Chicago.
