About EL DUSTY:
Raised and rooted in Corpus Christi, Texas, producer/DJ El Dusty translates the Southern Texas border experience into new barrio anthems where the MPC2000 sampler and chopped clips of Latin music history collide. Recently tabbed by Rolling Stone as one of “10 New Artists” to watch in 2015, El Dusty is considered a Cumbia Electronica pioneer who’s been feeding Cumbia into his sound processor and synthesizer since before the turn of the millennium and continues to this day with releases such as K Le Pasa & Trapanera (alongside 3ball MTY’s Erick Rincón).
What Lee Scratch Perry is to Reggae, El Dusty is to Cumbia: the Father of Dub. Composer, arranger and ringmaster, Oliveira reinterprets the principals of the Jamaican sound systems of the 1970s and mashes the grimey, electro bass sounds while always bringing together a panoply of MCs, DJs, musicians & singers as seen with the Master Blaster Soundsystem project, which involves electronic toys, live beats and a full band to push the live show envelope and serve as a bridge between DJ culture, live music performances and the cumbia underground.
A versatile dj, with studies in audio production both in high school and college, as well as radio dj experience, RomaSoul aka Maja Bijedic swears that music chose her. Rhythm is something which comes naturally and building up energy within her set is her specialty. A native to Sarajevo, Bosnia who currently resides in Chicago, she is a profound lover and student of music and many of it’s forms and genres. From live music to dj sets, and everything in-between RomaSoul has had the immense honor of working with some of Chicago’s greatest and most cutting edge artists. Her parties and residencies have spanned the city and she is currently 1/3 of the underground collective Dirty Dish.
