Me, a Mexican fandango dance and a 10-piece hip-hop brass band all walk into a video game arcade…
Doing CMJ my way, bringing together an unlikely pairing of artists to play with me at experimental video game arcade, Babycastles on W 14th St. in Manhattan.


PitchBlak Brass Band

NYC's 10-piece hip-hop collective of young artists repping sounds from the 80’s to present day. Bandleader and native New Yorker Channell Crinchlow is at the helm of their big soulful sound on sousaphone.



Radio Jarocho

Traditional dance and music from southern Veracruz, Mexico. Son jarocho is a mix of Afro-Caribbean and Mexican sounds performed at a fandango, a community celebration centered around the tarima (a wooden dance platform).

Helado Negro and Xenia Rubinos perform for WNYC Soundcheck

Xenia was featured as guest vocalist on WNYC soundcheck where she performed 3 songs with Helado Negro from his new album Double Youth (Asthmatic Kitty Records).

Currently based in Brooklyn, New York, Helado Negro grew up in South Florida to Ecuadorian parents, and his graciously tumbling electronic music pulls from that heritage by smoothly singing, seamlessly flowing in between English and Spanish.
