DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have spent almost 20 years igniting dance floors with cutting edge music not limited by borders or language. They host the longest-running Bhangra and Bollywood party in the world (Andaz est. 2002) and co-founded the Pacific Northwest’s first Global Bass dance party (Atlas 2003-2013.) In 2013 Anjali and The Kid initiated TROPITAAL! A Desi Latino Soundclash, which they host monthly at The Goodfoot (pre pandemic.) They host 2 weekly radio shows CHOR BAZAAR (XRAY.FM) & Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Kush (KBOO.FM)

Few DJs can be said to have changed the sound of their city but that is exactly what DJ Anjali and The Incredible Kid have accomplished since they first introduced Portland, Oregon nightclub audiences to the many varied sounds of Global Bass at a raucous New Year’s Eve debut in 2000. They are most known for incinerating dance floors with the heavy dance floor artillery of South Asia, but the duo scour the globe for any hard-hitting music that combines local music traditions with window-rattling production.

In addition to hosting their own club nights, Anjali and The Kid regularly perform at festivals. They have appeared at Sasquatch! Music Festival, Decibel, What The Festival?!, MusicfestNW, Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration, Beloved, Matatu (Oakland), Photosynthesis, Soul’d Out, Portland International Film Festival, Indian Summer Festival (Vancouver, B.C.), Kaleidoscope and Vancouver Queer Film Festival to name a few. They have guested at the legendary Basement Bhangra (NYC) numerous times as well as Non Stop Bhangra (SF), iBomba (NYC) and Bhangrateque (Chicago.)

After making a name for themselves in their hometown’s raucous house party circuit, DJ Anjali & The Incredible Kid introduced the Portland, Oregon nightclub scene to the sounds of Bhangra, Bollywood and Global Bass on New Year’s Eve 2000. A series of residencies followed, beginning with a night at the legendary Blackbird, and the duo began hosting their ANDAZ dance parties in July of 2002. The party’s focus on hardcore Panjabi Bhangra and the latest electronic confections from the Bollywood film industry continue to pack the dance floor after 16 years. While ANDAZ was still in the bloom of youth, Anjali and The Kid founded the revolutionary dance night ATLAS (with co-host/DJ E3) at Holocene in November of 2003 to introduce Portland to Global Bass sounds such as: Balkan Beats, Reggaeton, Funk Carioca, 3Ball Guarachero, Digital Cumbia, Urban Desi, French and Arabic Hip-Hop, Rai N B, Reggada, Dembow, Dubstep, Kuduro, Merengue Urbano and a host of other local and diasporic future musics. ATLAS was a vital party in Portland nightlife and the Global Bass scene internationally for more than nine years.

They have supported artists as diverse as A Tribe Called Red, Bomba Estéreo, Tigerstyle, Balkan Beat Box, Major Lazer, Skrillex, Flying Lotus, Saini Surinder, Digable Planets, Delhi 2 Dublin, Sleigh Bells, Glitch Mob, Dengue Fever, Blockhead, Uproot Andy, Hindi Zahra, Toy Selectah, Quantic, Opiuo, Bonobo, Gold Panda, Maga Bo, Poirier, Plastician, Kultur Shock, Ghostland Observatory, State of Bengal, Karsh Kale, DJ Rekha, DJ Spooky, CeU, Antibalas, Nickodemus & Joro-Boro.
