Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta rocks the sounds of pan-Latin American cumbia. Their gritty grassroots approach captures the “golden age” of streamlined, tight-knit ensembles that shook sweatbox dance floors with raw and fierce energy throughout Latin America in the 1970s—honest dance music with no frills and no fear, anchored by piercing guitars, garage organs, and straight-ahead percussive might.

After making their debut in May of 2013, Dos Santos has been steadily making the rounds at Chicago’s premiere live music venues and festivals, bringing the sounds of pan-Latin American cumbia to audiences across the city. The rich and diverse landscape of Chicago live music has seen its share of Latin American dance genres come and go, while others have maintained a strong presence over time. When it comes to cumbia, Dos Santos have made it their goal to provide a much-needed live artistic voice, expanding the listenership, appeal, and general conversation about Latino music throughout Chicagoland.

The group’s five members (Irekani Ferreyra, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Peter Maestro Vale) have their own storied careers in a diversity of styles—from jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa—in addition to a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing. Their visceral sound draws from this sonic, cultural, and political well of influence, and is guaranteed to make you move.

Chorizo Funk, a 2013 Austin Chronicle Best of Austin winner, and the 2012 Lords of Wax champion, embodies the old school definition of a DJ: technical skill with his hands and musical knowledge. In his hometown of Austin he is highly regarded for his love of vinyl, party-rocking ability, and hard work behind the turntables.

A member of Peligrosa, the longest running Latin dance party in Texas, his Latin music mixes have been featured in Remezcla, Sound and Colour and Okayplayer because of his unique blend of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Colombian, and Venezuelan varieties of Cumbia, Salsa, and Tropical Bass. He is comfortable with classic and traditional styles and exploring the new sounds of tropical bass producers from around the world.

DJ Chorizo Funk is also resident DJ and founding member of Body Rock ATX, a monthly first Friday dance party. He founded the party with Riders Against the Storm, award winning Austin hip hop duo.
