I have been a huge remote fan of the Portland based DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid!. I am so excited when today I saw that The Incredible Kid! has the most amazing Desi and Latino mashup mix available on soundcloud. This mix was created in honor of the one-year anniversary of DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid’s Tropitaal Desi Latino Soundclash party.

Who is The Incredible Kid?

Beginning with incorporating Asian Drum and Bass, Reggaeton, and Meren-Rap songs into his late ’90s house party sets, The Incredible Kid built his reputation igniting Portland, Oregon dance floors with the incendiary urban sounds of international dance music. In late 2000 The Kid introduced DJ Anjali to the dancing masses, and the two spearheaded the Bhangra and Bollywood scene in Portland through their Andaz night, still running strong since its debut in July of 2002. Alongside fellow DJ E3, the two initiated the Global Bass scene in Portland when they founded the club night Atlas in November of 2003. In 2013 Anjali and The Kid introduced their newest party: Tropitaal a Desi Latino Soundclash.

Trust -once you listen to this mix, you will be downloading this track to be listening to it constantly this summer. Now, how to get Tropitaal to Los Angeles…?

American contemporary pop artist Ron English (previously featured here) has an ongoing fascination with Guernica (top image), Pablo Picasso's famous 1937 painting depicting the intense suffering and tragedies of war, created in response to the bombing of the village of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.

Ron English has painted his own interpretations of Guernica over 50 times to date. For him the iconic painting serves as a modern template, “just as the Madonna and Child is an ancient template,” he says.

The Huffington Post recently shared an essay by English in which he explained his reasons for continually reimagining Picasso’s masterpiece:

“[Guernica] is a visual shorthand for the overwhelming and gratuitous horror of modern war. But I argue that the cultural takeaway of Guernica is actually the opposite. It transforms incomprehensible tragedy into a cartoon narrative, something we can more easily absorb. This is part of the human process, to distance ourselves from the immediacy of undiluted, overwhelming emotions by overlaying a narrative that simplifies, and in effect, takes us down from three to two dimensions. And this is the underlying concept that I grapple with in all my many versions of Guernica.”

“There are a few things I have witnessed becoming obsolete in the past few years, the first being autographs. I haven’t been asked for an autograph since the invention of the iPhone with a front-facing camera. The only memento ‘kids these days’ want is a selfie. It’s part of the new currency, which seems to be ‘how many followers you have on Instagram.’”

This is it, right? That moment where the modern world stops making sense and I can just get old and lose touch and listen to old vinyl and everyone will leave me alone?
