Chulita Lonely Girl - 1976

 

This mix is me. This is the mix you dance to on a Friday or Saturday night after putting in work all week against the oppressor. This mix is a big F-u to Trump and his fascist government. This is the mix you’re going to bump at the backyard boogie this summer or cruise to in your 72 Impala. It’s the mix you roller skate to with the Tios at Venice Beach. It’s music I imagine playing at a Black and Brown party after a Black Panther Protest at an Oakland Courthouse. Just a warning it’s going to make your hips move and arms sway. The title, 1976, is when my parents crossed to the US from Mexico, an important date for me. This mix includes funk, disco and boogie and my favorite songs to dance to. I hope they hit you in the same way, happy listening.  - DJ Lonely Girl
