Line-up /KENNY "DOPE" GONZALEZ (live) (MAW/NYC)
BE BROWN (THE PEOPLE/OAKLAND)
SOM., FRESCO., The People
We've been able to host a range of great guests at SOM. but there was always this one artist that kept coming up in conversation that up until now we haven't been able to secure. That particular individual has been none other than KENNY "DOPE" GONZALEZ.
Along with his Masters At Work partner Lil' Louie Vega, he has been able to fulfill every style of modern dance music. Whether it has been house, hip-hop, disco, techno, latin, dancehall all while scoring underground and mainstream classics. And that ability to charm every genre under his control is why he's thee perfect guest for RITMOS SIN FRONTERAS
Ritmos Sin Fronteras is the concept created by Be Brown (The People) and DJ Hakobo (SOM/FRESCO). A vision where a dance party is simply that an occasion to let loose to dance music without the trapping of having to be genre specific. It's like "One Nation Under A Groove" but with the kick & clap of Detroit, the poly-rhythm of latin music, and the wobbliest of a UK baseline.
