Friday, May 15, marks the third Friday of the month and that means it is time for Austin-based Latin DJ collective Peligrosa to take over Empire Control Room & Garage. Austin’s longest running Latin dance party will welcome special guest Murlo to the party as the London-based producer is currently on his first North American tour. While the DJs own the patio, live music will be provided on the Control Room stage inside by Austin-based performers Leticia Rodriguez and Huerta Culture. Puro party y’all.
Although not Latino, Murlo will be an easy fit with the Latin sounds of Peligrosa. His mixes are heavily Caribbean-influenced, remixing grime, dancehall, R&B and more on UK dance floors. His latest release, Jasmine EP, was released in February via Mixpak. The EP features his first, full original vocal release, Irish vocalist Gemma Dunleavy. Be ready to dance to a little Jasmine material as well as some electronic riddims.
Peligrosa crew members who will be in the house Friday include Orion, Manolo Black, DJ Manny, El Dusty and Chorizo Funk. Peligrosa photographer Quito will be taking photos.
Empire Control Room & Garage is located at 606 E. 7th Street. Doors open at 10 p.m. 21+ welcome. $5 Pre-sale Ticket (GA) available here / $8 Day Of Show. Visit the Facebook event page here. In the event of rain, the full show will be moved inside to the Control Room stage.
