How do I get through hump day Wednesday? I dance. And the music I love dancing to is Global Bass, the border and genre crossing dance music, heavy with tropical rhythms and electronic beats, flavored with sounds from a global musical palette. Here in LA, no one does global bass better than the Subsuelo collective, known for throwing some of the best underground dance parties and LA-native, DJ Gozar, aka Josh Weiss, is one of its maestro taste-makers. Enjoy his latest mix Poly Ritmo 2, which takes you on a musical world journey exploring Afro-Latin rhythms from Brazil, Colombia and Peru, to Angola and Kenya in the motherland of Africa. DJ Gozar has selected fabulous remixes by Daniel Haaksman, Uproot Andy, Captain Planet, Geko Jones and Atropolis and if nearly an hour of non-stop booty-shaking isn’t enough for you, come shake it some more at these upcoming Subsuelo and global bass events in LA:

Born to a Brazilian mother and Indonesian father, raised in Rio de Janeiro, and moved to New York after high school to pursue music, Zuzuka Poderosa is the self-described “new queen warrior of her own special brand of Carioca Bass. Influenced by Funk carioca, originating in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, borrows heavily from Miami bass but with an added sense of urgency and brutal lyrics over Brooklyn Bass.” I’ve seen her twice before in LA and this global bass diva is unstoppable! Check out her new single Seda, an outspoken song about marijuana decriminalization.
