DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have been igniting dance floors with Global Bass since 2000. They host the longest-running Bhangra and Bollywood party in the world (ANDAZ est. 2002.) They co-founded the Pacific Northwest’s first Global Bass dance party (ATLAS at Holocene 2003-2013 with E3) and host 2 weekly radio shows (CHOR BAZAAR on XRAY.FM & Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Kush on KBOO.FM.)
TROPITAAL! A Desi Latino Soundclash (est. 2013) is their latest project. Few DJs can be said to have changed the sound of their city but that is exactly what DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have accomplished since they first introduced Portland, Oregon nightclub audiences to the many varied sounds of Global Bass at a raucous New Year’s Eve debut in 2000.
They are most known for incinerating dance floors with the heavy dance floor artillery of South Asia, but the duo scour the globe for any hard-hitting music that combines local music traditions with window-rattling production.
Anjali and The Kid regularly perform at festivals including Sasquatch! Music Festival, Decibel, MusicfestNW, Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration, Beloved, Photosynthesis, Soul’d Out, Indian Summer Festival, Matatu, Kaleidoscope, Vancouver Queer Film Festival & Portland International Film Festival. They have guested at Basement Bhangra (NYC), Non Stop Bhangra (SF), iBomba (NYC) and Bhangrateque (Chicago.) “Anjali is the premier Portland dance DJ.” ElevenPdx 4/8/19
