What is Que Bajo?!……What does it mean ?????
Que Bajo?! is an outlet for Rare, Unreleased, Obscure Deep Tropical Bass Dance music w/ influences of traditional Afro Latin heat that is fused with the Rhythms and Urban/Electronic Contemporary sounds of Africa and Europe such as Dubstep, Electronica & Kuduro that won’t be heard for another couple of years from now.
Que Bajo?! is also renowned for Uproot Andy’s and Geko Jones’ Original Afro Latin Electronic Productions & Remixes.
Que Bajo?! literally means many things….if u said Que Bajo?! in Puerto Rico, you might be saying whats up. But it can also mean “how low ??? ” as in how low of a person can u be ???? Or it can also mean “how low can u get on the dancefloor” because you will get down and dirty at a Que Bajo?! Party. However, my favorite is “what Bass ?” as in you’ll never know what type of Bass Que Bajo?! will be cooking up (from which country) as they will make you shake.
Geko Jones (Pronounced gue-cojones in spanish) originally from Puerto Rico/Colombia via Brooklyn and Uproot Andy originally from Toronto via Brooklyn never realized how similar their taste were since coming from very different backgrounds.
They both met at one of Geko Jones‘ NY Tropical Parties in Brooklyn and realized they were to be destined to start a movement they are now labeling as Tropical Bass. From Funana to Funky (from London) to Digital Cumbia to Dubstep to Mambo Violento to Garifuna to Kuduro.
When Geko Jones met Uproot Andy, they knew coming together would be a great thing, not just for New York, but for the worldwide Latin and non-Latin club scene.
Combined they have been spurring lots of buzz throughout the East Coast and the West Coast for their explosive Original DJ Sets ranging in fans from true-blue hipsters from Brooklyn to Hardcore Salsa dancers from Washington Heights to Straigh Kwaito Heads from Africa to CEOs to Hood Rats. They have been breaking barriers and ground by Criss-Crossing scenes ….from hip hop heads to electro heads to salsa and cumbia heads to traditional african music heads all in the same room dancing !!!!!!!!!!
They have garnered the attention of Today’s Top Producers and Artists such as Diplo, Toy Selectah, Aterciopelados, Los Amigos Invisibles, Vampire Weekend, Paul Devro, Maluca, BLK JKS, Pacha Massive, Sidestepper, Radioclit, El Guincho, Nguzunguzu, Danger Mouse, Sabo, Nickodemus, Turntable Lab, The Mad Decent Family, Choc Quib Town and the list goes on and on.
