Tropixxx 6 Year Anniversary: A Look Back at D.C.’s Bass Music Haven

This weekend,  Tropixxx – a collective of DJs and party founded by Mathias and The Clown Prince – will celebrate its sixth year of being at the forefront of tropical bass in the District. On Sunday, the crew, which has since included The Lothario and most recently Jackson Kachor, will be back at Velvet Lounge with special guest Trillnatured.

I asked The Clown Prince, aka Marvin Lopez, to reach out to the guest DJs of the past Tropixxx to reflect on the parties. I asked them what they felt was the most memorable part of the night, the song that got the crowd most hype, and to describe Tropixxx as a food. RSVP for the Tropixxx 6 Year Anniversary on Facebook and follow their Soundcloud for speaker-blasting goodness.

Marching Forward – Jessica Jacobo

“Marching Forward” is a new series of guest blogs about the demonstrations, protests, and women’s marches that happened during Inauguration Weekend.

I asked women, and women-identifying people, of color if they felt about the march, whether they felt that the march – which initially lacked representation by women of color in leadership roles – met their expectations, and ways that they think people can use the momentum of the weekend to make changes in their community. If you would like to contribute your experiences, please use this form. #WOCMarchingForward
