Subsuelo is a Latinx DJ crew from Los Angeles that brings together a borderless, genre-bending mix of new music from around the world.
Named “Best Dance Party” by LA Weekly, Subsuelo started as a neighborhood house party in 2011 and eventually grew into a 10-member creative collective. Led by Canyon Cody and DJ Ethos, the Subsuelo crew features a diverse squad of instrumentalists, vocalists, dancers, photographers and visual artists united by the love of music.
In 2016, Subsuelo co-founded Calentura along with LNL and iconic salsa label Fania Records. The critically-acclaimed project opened the vaults of Fania’s historic catalog, remixing previously unreleased tracks from Latin music legends Celia Cruz, Hector Lavoe and Willie Colón.
Over the last 10 years, Subsuelo has been featured in Billboard, Spin, ABC News and NPR, and toured across Latin America and the US, performing at Coachella, Boiler Room, Supersónico, Red Bull Music Academy and more.
