The tragedy that struck Pulse Nightclub in Orlando last Saturday has rocked the core of queer & trans people of color communities.

In a show of solidarity and to raise funds for the families of the victims – some of New York City’s QTPOC deejays (including members Ushka and Riobamba of Dutty Artz) who foster queer spaces have organized this event and will deejay sets to honor the Latinx and Black queer family who have passed in Orlando.


On May 27th, Raymondstock and Riobamba’s new events/booking platform APOCALIPSIS present LIMBO, a two-floor #reggaetónrave that’s a signal boost to radical futures in Latinx urbano soundscapes. Hosted at Trans-Pecos, LIMBO welcomes the New York City debut of Chilena reina emcee Tomasa del Real.


The Talacha curated May 28th party is the result of chats with Trans-Pecos’ curator Sam(ZS) about the idea of bringing the spirit of sonidero events to the Ridgewood club.

This Friday Dutty Artz is kicking off 2016 with a showcase during the annual APAP festival in New York. (more…)


The new solo album from Branko is called Club Atlas and it’s covers so much new ground. Guest appearances from Princess Nokia, DJ Sliink, Mr MFN eXquire, The Clerk and loads more all round it out to present his very unique perspective on global club culture. The man behind Buraka Som Systema and Enchufada records touches down in NYC to present this new collaborative work and he’s bringing Peru’s Dengue Dengue Dengue and NYC’s Que Bajo to add to the matter.

Dutty Artz has always been into multisensory experiences, especially ones that help us link across and through borders, making conscious links across the globe and celebrating flavors that don’t get enough love. A few years back at Beyond the Block in Sunset Park, we made sure food trucks with Chinese and Mexican food kept people fed. This month we bring it in-house with BRUNCH GOZÓN, the first of a series of daytime (into early evening) music-and-food experiences, kicking off Sunday, August 30th from 12pm-7pm at TBA Brooklyn (395 Wythe Ave on the corner of South 6th Street).
