From the southern stretches of Chiapas to corners of the American Southwest (and even parts of Central America), the holiday of Día de Muertos remains a testament to Mexico’s rich cultural history and the diaspora’s ample reach. As we know, Día de Muertos traces back to indigenous traditions of the pre-Columbian era, a celebration of ancestors that has survived centuries of colonial rule and cultural whitewashing.

To mark the occasion, we’re hosting our own Día de Muertos party on November 2, featuring DJ sets from Santa Muerte, Riobamba, and DJ Python, sponsored by Toyota.

Santa Muerte will stake their claim as the patron saints of eerie, spooky club music, while Riobamba’s rave reggaeton and DJ Python’s deep house dembow riddims will take over the Remezcla offices in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Aptly titled “A Feast For the Senses,” the event running from 8 p.m.-12 a.m. is an opportunity to celebrate the revered tradition together as a community.

Come through for Mexican bites and treats, a communal ofrenda to celebrate loved ones, and calavera makeup looks.
