Tropical Futurism - Bumbac Joe dj set

Welcoming summer time, State Line Distillery features an evening of tropical inspired cocktails and music sourced from "all natural" tropics around the world with a futuristic twist. Afrobeat, Latin Soul, Global Bass, Boogaloo, Cumbia, Heavy Salsa, Afroperuvian Grooves, Brazilian funk and Descarga.

Bumbac Joe is a venezuelan-peruvian-american dj/producer based in Chicago whose beats and grooves summon listeners into the fire of Latin American dance. Chicago Reader's choice "Best Local Dance producer 2016" winner, has released records with labes like Sonorama Records (Chicago) and Gozadera Records (NY) among others. Taking his sampling, looping and remixing into the studio, this beatmaker transforms folkloric rhythms into topical beats and brings marginalized music onto the contemporary dance floor.
