As it turns out, I’ve been terrible at updating this webpage, so for that I apologize. For more frequent information on gigs, releases, projects, follow the Ushka facebook page, the Dutty Artz blog, or me on twitter @ty_ushka.
It’s been a busy, busy couple of months, but I managed to squeeze in some really fun gigs.
Towards the end of 2014, I had my first international gigs – In October I played the Digital Tropic party as part of X Avant IX Transculturalism and Uma Nota Festival in Toronto, Canada, courtesy of Toronto’s Music Gallery.

And in December, I played in Mexico City with the Liga Mexicana del Bass crew in DF (I even got in the paper in DF!).

As we do every month, Beto and I throw our monthly iBomba party at Bembe. In December we celebrated our 3 year anniversary! For updates on our line-ups for every 2nd thursday of the month at Bembe, go to the iBomba facebook page. We also record all our guest sets, so to relive the party, check out iBomba’s Mixcloud.
Special shout out to Montreal’s Boogat and Brooklyn by way of Brazil Zuzuka Poderosa for special performances at January’s iBomba; with guest djs Soundculture from Chicago and Maracuyeah of D.C.
Other fun gigs in the Fall and end of 2014 to note include the Basement Bhangra vs Que Bajo that I deejayed with DJ Rekha, DJ Petra, and Geko Jones, mashing up desi beats with some of that champeta and cumbia!
Coming up in February 2015, here are some gigs to look out for:
And there’s much more on the horizon including new mixtapes (finally), events, and more. Stay tuned! Xo.
