Beats without Borders and Frenetic Edge are at it again! This time we
bring you incredible beats and world class, hard hitting dance from
all over the world!
El Papachango from Argentina moved to the states as a young adult and
brought with him a love of music from South America that he blended
with West Coast underground beats to create a groove that is unique
and infectious to dance floors everywhere. Sexy, soulful and funky
sounds come out of him even when he’s fast asleep. El Papachango is
also one of the core creators of the legendary El Circo, one of San
Francisco’s most prominent avant-garde performance groups that has
been delivering music with a grip of very talented artists on massive
systems across the planet, like Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, Freq
Masty, Dj Laura, Antennae and many others. His latin fusion and hip
hop influence leaves audiences stunned – with a sense of the mystical
rooted in a very tangible dance floor experience.
Originally hailing from Montreal, Sweet Anomaly came west in the late
90s. He soon became involved in the local Vancouver scene and began to
build his reputation for sweet down tempo morning sets and marathon
dance parties. For many years he has been touring the west coast
festival circuit. Sharing the stage with countless talented local and
international artists. His take on dance music is in constant flux,
always new flavours are being added to the mix, no genre is off
limits, his sets are journeys through his current tastes. The aim is
to create timeless experiences wherein the newest sounds may
intermingle with those of the past. The result is an eclectic,
emotional and memorable dance party! VIVA!
Amar's taste cuts a path through an abundance of musical selections
and leads dancefloors into a hypnotic sway like snakes before the
charmer. Whether it's breaks, bhangra house, drum & bass or downtempo,
the global nature of Amar's sets bridges a multi-culti span from the
world to the Bay Area and beyond!
Unmata (Amy and Kari)

the globe, tribal fusion powerhouse UNMATAs high energy brand of dance
has packed the house and electrified audiences at venues of all sizes.
Whether using fire, swords, or just the sweat off their own bodies
UNMATA always satisfies. UNMATA are out to blow the doors off Tribal
"Dahlia's dancing defies categories. She is neither Egyptian or
Tribal, Fusion or Gypsy, but she is all of these rolled into one. She
does not just interpret the music; she oozes it. Whether it is Middle
Eastern, Jazz, Balinese or Japanese, music is part of her being. This
is what you see when you watch Dahlia dance: the essence of music in
physical form." - Leila of Cairo
Most known for her musicality and ability to connect with the
audience, Calamity Sam is not afraid to ham it up and show her sense
of humor on stage. She has been a featured performer and instructor in
France, Holland, Spain, England, and across the U.S. Sam is based in
Oakland, CA where she teaches Unmata/Hot Pot I.T.S., co-produces
Taverna Nights with Tatyana Balte, and the Tribal Fest Afterparty with
DJ Amar. You’ll find her regularly in Los Angeles performing at Zulu
Lounge, and producing an Improv night in L.A. called Eclectic Ensemble
with DJ Amar.
