Buyepongo means “to cause a ruckus” – which certainly describes the scene on the dance floors of Los Angeles whenever the band launches into its dizzyingly energetic, instantly infectious rhythms. But it also describes Buyepongo’s riotous mash-up of influences, which absorbs hip-hop, punk, funk, and jazz sounds into a delirious tropical blend of styles from across the Latin American diaspora. Like its name, the band is part hybrid, part invention, something untranslatable that nevertheless perfectly captures its uniquely vibrant spirit.


Subsuelo is a global bass crew based in Los Angeles that experiments with futuristic dance parties and old-school tropical music.

Last year, Subsuelo hit the road, performing on Boiler Room at the MoMA in New York City, at the Manana & Musicabana Festivals in Cuba, Supersonico in Los Angeles, Genius Loci in Mexico, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Northern Nights, Woogie Weekend, Boogaloo and other festivals.

Subsuelo started as a house party in Boyle Heights back in 2011 and evolved into a monthly performance at Eastside Luv where friends get down to cumbia, hip-hop, salsa, house, reggaeton, dancehall, baile funk, kuduro and all kinds of new weird global bass variations. Along with the DJs, Subsuelo also features a live flamenco band that performs traditional cante jondo and experiments with genre-bending fusions and collaborations.

Louie Vega, Cut Chemist, Ana Tijoux, Quantic, Nortec Collective, Dam-Funk, Novalima, Mexican Institute of Sound, Nickodemus, Money Mark, Toy Selectah, Chancha Via Circuito, Nu-Mark, Tittsworth, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Jeremy Sole, Mochilla, Sabo, Garth Trinidad, Buyepongo, Paul Devro, Anthony Valadez, Aceyalone, Boogaloo Assassins, Buraka Som Sistema and many more.
