CUMBIA BASS: El Dusty drops the beat at The Ritz this weekend.

Latin Grammy-nominated DJ Dusty’s trap inventions are a tribute to life on the Southern Texas border where Latin music history and the infinity of MPC sampling collide. The producer’s bass-heavy dance music is a tropical soup of Tejano classics, Chicano soul music, classic rock, and hip-hop that beckons to his roots in the coastal city of Corpus Christi, Texas. A pioneer of the cumbia electronica genre, Dusty is all about mixing up samples and people, often collaborating with Latin artists across the globe. In 2015, he was hailed as one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need To Know.”
