Recap: FEx & Sound Culture with DJ Brazilia
The FEx collaboration with Sound Culture Chicago last week was great. We hosted Los Angeles-based DJ Brazilia for the evening and pulled out a lot of stops to make this come together right. It was a short notice kind of thing but we pieced together some quality speakers, projected visuals, and nice vibes in a restaurant atmosphere- thanks Taxim!
DJ Sound Culture, though under the weather, started us off with a really fine set of classic & polyrhythmic Latin vibes to get the dance floor in motion, setting the space just right for DJ Newlife’s global selections. By the time Brazilia came on the sonic vibrations were running high and she unloaded a wide range of samba classics & hip hop to funky stuff, and then a closing set of of perfectly mixed breakbeats, much to the happiness of the bboys.
We also welcomed Limba Gal fashions as part of the night, who I think will be joining again for certain, and amazing percussion stylings by FEx newcomer Ruben Jimenez. We were really excited to have Ruben on and he’ll be back for sure so look for FEx to have more soundsystem sets in the future, like here.
Another quick, quick video above from mostly closing of the night footage after the lights came on. One of these days I’ll get some quality, juicy glimpses going.
