San Jose DJ Turbo Sonidero Futuristico throws the recurring party Sonido Clash, which is a showcase for electronic music with Latin roots in the South Bay. He also has performed at many East Bay dance parties over the years thanks to his association with the Oakland DJ collective Trill Team 6. Turbo specializes in haunting and surreal cumbia remixes that take the upbeat South American folk genre and transform it with disorienting, hypnotic electronic effects and occasional R&B and hip-hop samples. While most cumbia is bouncy and jovial, Turbo’s productions retain the genre’s danceable feel while inserting dark and unexpected twists. He performs in Oakland at Lounge 3411 in the Laurel District at the free party Well Nourished Rhythms alongside San Francisco disco producer Jessica Hagen.
