Club Chai

The creators of Night Forms are back with an eclectic, new dance party.


To the disappointment of many, DJs 8ulentina and Foozool recently discontinued their genre-bending, multi-cultural monthly dance party, Night Forms, at The Rock Steady. But not to worry: The duo is back with another event, Club Chai, which makes its debut at Alena Studios in West Oakland on January 15. Foozool and 8ulentina will spin multifaceted mixes that combine international club genres, hip-hop, and strains of various types of traditional Middle Eastern music that allude to their respective Armenian and Turkish heritages. Turbo Sonidero Futuristico, a producer from San Jose (by way of Mexico) who specializes in distorted and surreal Cumbia, will perform at the event. Philadelphia’s DJ Haram and Oakland’s Jasmine Infiniti and Neto 187 also share the bill. The party will go until late, and chai will be served. Listen to 8ulentina’s new mix, “Rosewater,” on SoundCloud to get a sense of the party’s eclectic vibes ahead of time.
