The Incredible Kid
Beginning with incorporating Asian Drum and Bass, Reggaeton, and Meren-Rap songs into his late ’90s house party sets, The Incredible Kid built his reputation igniting Portland, Oregon dance floors with the incendiary urban sounds of international dance music. In late 2000 The Kid introduced DJ Anjali to the dancing masses, and the two spearheaded the Bhangra and Bollywood scene in Portland through their Andaz night, still running strong since its debut in July of 2002. Alongside fellow DJ E3, the two initiated the Global Bass scene in Portland when they founded the club night Atlas in November of 2003. In 2013 Anjali and The Kid introduced their newest party: Tropitaal a Desi Latino Soundclash.
Alongside DJ Anjali the Kid headlined a sold-out night of “Basement Bhangra” in December of 2004 in NYC, headlined the opening night of the 2007 Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration, and the opening party of the 2009 Vancouver Queer Film Festival. In 2010 they played the Beloved and Photosynthesis festivals, and in 2011 they were the only artists to play all four nights of Sasquatch! Festival, including headlining the dance stage opening night. Since January of 2006 The Incredible Kid and DJ Anjali have hosted a cult radio show on KBOO, Portland’s long-running community radio station and have been weekly hosts on Portland’s XRAY.FM since its inception. Other projects have included Bend It Like Bhangra, Bollywood Horror, Booty Call, Dusty, Rocket Rickshaw, Resist Sonic Monoculture, Filmistan and Ghetturista.
