SUDA, Mexico City’s seasonal clash of the underground perreo titans, is back for an action-packed fourth installment, once again inviting revelers from all over the city to join in a safe and hedonistic night of beat-heavy excess. “SUDA is the mixture of bodies, the crashing of hips and a connection to the most alternative sides of urbano music in Mexico City,” reads a press release for the event, announcing the function will take place on November 8 at popular concert venue Bajo Circuito.
The party-festival hybrid was once described as “The Avengers of reggaeton” for its refreshing ethos of nightlife cooperation – born from an effort by organizers behind events such as 01-800-Perreo (Monterrey), CyberWitches (Guadalajara) and Perreo Millennial (Mexico City) – all pooling their resources to bring Spanish dancehall vixen Bad Gyal to Mexico for the first time. The event has since featured hyped performances by King DouDou, Mc Buzzz, La Favi and more, while this year the crew has gone all out by bringing in Chilean trap star Gianluca for his own Mexico debut. Gianluca is riding high after the recent release of his debut LP Yin Yang, including nimble club hits like “Sismo,” “Flotando” and the title track, which features Chilean indie pop goddess Javiera Mena, and will surely make the crowd erupt in euphoric perreo circles.
While Gianluca is no doubt a major get for the party, the rest of the SUDA lineup is all aces. Sets by DJs and producers Chekesito, RanKng and MIND CTRL will bounce between reggaeton, baile funk, trap and club all night, while a performance from rookie reggaetonera Dylan Jesse will turn the sultry vibes all the way up and drive culos all the way down.
Hydration, comfortable shoes and rocking your finest drip are all encouraged.
