Houston DJs Gracie Chavez, Navó, OG Bobby Trill and Principe Q are spearheading a new digital Latin sound around Texas with Bombón, the ultimate tropical dance party. Their selections are accented by percussionist Ilya Janos and mistress of ceremonies La Comadre Mel.

Established in 2010 (along with Antonio Alucema), Bombón continues to introduce booming tropical beats all the way from South and Central America to the Dirty Dirty and back. From cumbia, moombahton, tropical bass, guarachero, 3ball, baile funk, salsa, mambo to the latest in emerging Latin sounds, Bombón DJs make you want to put on your zapatos and dance el puro pinche party ‘til they hurt!

The Ponderers began as a musical challenge for two Chicago music enthusiasts who were once given the task of providing an all day music set composed solely of female-fronted artists for a women’s empowerment festival. Taking on the challenge and then some, members Stephanie Manriquez (Fanita Banana) and Sandra Trevino (Angelfuk) have pushed forward in their writing and collective DJ sets (and radio hosting in Sandra’s case) to feature female-fronted & Latin-alternative music. The Ponderers are passionate about artists who they feel, at some point in time whether through lyrics, a video or a beat, have supported them as artists and people.
