“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 while maintaining the party’s tradition of featuring a special guest every month. This month we feature:
DJ EXPO (M.O.M. / ROOTDOWN): DJ Expo got his start at the ripe old age of 13, when he was blessed with his first set of turntables. Eventually, DJ Dusk, the man behind the nationally renowned Root Down Soundsystem, took Expo under his wing, becoming a major mentor to the young DJ and encouraging him to expand his musical taste into many genres. Expo also has been a resident at the monday party in Silverlake called "Mowtown on Mondays" as well as the legendary Root Down party in LA since 2005 and has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such luminaries as Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash, Big Daddy Kane, Z-Trip, the Beat Junkies, Cut Chemist, The Breakestra, 45 King, DJ Nu-Mark, Madlib, and many more. Expo has rocked across the country from Hawaii, to Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Phoenix, Las Vegas, St Louis, New York, and more. Be sure not to miss Expo igniting the dance floor at the next #UptempoLA!
