For our half year anniversary party we have a special theme lined up! UPTEMPO LA will be hosting a NATIVE TONGUES TRIBUTE! Since throwing our first Native Tongues Tribute party 7 years ago in San Francisco, there is no doubt the influence of the NATIVE TONGUES family still remains a strong influence in our lives as DJ's, Producers, and simply fans of music. Uptempo LA residents Kero One + Tsugu will be joined by longtime friend and So-Cal DJ, Plann B. Rocking jams from Tribe, De-la, Jungle Brothers, original samples, to extended family (Dilla, Busta, and D'angelo) this will definately be a night to remember!
Oh yeah, and for those that have kept their "UptempoLA" buttons, you will be granted free entry if you wear it!
Once purchased your name will be available at the guestlist.

"Uptempo's How We Keep It," a successful party from San Francisco is making its debut in Los Angeles. Come join us on the 2nd Thursday of the month as we celebrate the weekday with an eclectic mix of hip-hop, electronic, and soul tunes that will satisfy the music nerds while keeping the dance floor lively.
Started by Bay Area DJ, and musician Kero One with the support of one of San Francisco's most sought after DJ's, King Most, "Uptempo's How We Keep It," introduced a vibe that kept the house packed for years.
Originally, "Uptempo's How We Keeps It," began in 2008, but slowly came to a halt when the careers of the resident DJ's began to reach new heights. Since his move to L.A, Kero One has rocked parties as the DJ from Paris to Seoul, and has performed on stage with his original music along side the likes of Stevie Wonder, Aloe Blacc and Blu & Exile.
Now with the help of Japan's DJ tsUgU, Kero One brings the party to Los Angeles with new name "Uptempo LA", while maintaining the party's tradition of featuring a special guest every month.
This Month's Guest:
DJ Plann B (Shift LA)
PLANN.B has been winning the ears of his audience with sets of seamlessly-blended bangers since the 90s. Plann B has shared the bill with such notables as Mos Def, King Britt, Bugz In The Attic, De La Soul and hundreds of other musical luminaries. Releasing a series of well-received mixtapes, B first made noise with "Places & Spaces" in 2006, which yielded healthy sales in the US and Japan. Soon after, he was handed the task of composing a mix for the MiniGods, a collection of vinyl figures with functional speakers, released by renowned visual artist Marka27 at the New York ComiCon; and recently collaborated with Publish Brand and Tried & True Co. on forthcoming mix projects.
Currently he's kept busy by his Shift residency, now in its fifth year, which also features the sounds of fellow collaborator DJ Rhettmatic of the World Famous Beat Junkies. Over the past decade, PLANN.B has hit the road to share his sound with a number of other cities, from San Francisco to Brooklyn, playing venues of all sizes and dropping DJ sets on a long list of respected radio shows along the way.
