DJ & Dance

Non Stop Bhangra

When: Fri., Aug. 24, 10 p.m. 2012

Seldom does San Francisco's hottest world-music dance party, Non Stop Bhangra, make it across the bridge, so this Saturday's East Bay iteration is certainly a special occasion. And the organizers planned accordingly, booking Om Records producer J-Boogie and DJ Sol Rising, who are both well-reputed in a variety of circles. J-Boogie is known for hip-hop and lounge mixes, but he's also maintained a long residency at Dub Mission, a weekly reggae party at San Francisco's Elbo Room. Similarly, Sol Rising grew up steeped in hip-hop, but ultimately forayed into global fusion -- he now mixes popular rap samples with bass lines that are redolent of dub or reggae. They'll both appear alongside bilingual hip-hop group Bang Data, whose members give traditional Latin styles (ranchera, cumbia, and norteño music) a contemporary spin. At The New Parish (579 18th St., Oakland) on Friday, Aug. 24. 10 p.m., $10.
