Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta
Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta
Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta rocks the sounds of popular pan-Latin American dance genres—from cumbia to salsa. Recently voted Chicago's Best Emerging Artist of 2015 by the Deli Magazine's Readers Poll, their gritty, grassroots approach captures the “golden age” of streamlined tight-knit ensembles that shook sweatbox dance floors with raw and fierce energy throughout Latin America in the 1970s and 80s—honest dance music with no frills and no fear, anchored by piercing guitars, garage organs, and spirited percussion.

The group’s five members (Peter Vale, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis) have their own storied careers in a diversity of styles—including jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa, and electronica—in addition to a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing. Their visceral sound draws from this sonic, cultural, and political well of influence, and is guaranteed to make you move.

After making their debut in May of 2013, Dos Santos has been steadily making the rounds at Chicago’s premiere live music venues and festivals. In March of 2015, they released their critically-acclaimed self-titled debut album Dos Santos and subsequently made appearances at SXSW, the Pachanga Latino Music Festival, and the Ruido Fest Latin Alternative Music Festival. Shortly thereafter, they hit the road on their ​"Corre Caballo Tour." ​The band is currently working on an EP with producer Beto Martínez of Grammy Award-winning Grupo Fantasma to be released in Fall 2016.
Vee Dee
Vee Dee
Chicago acid-punk trio Vee Dee started out a decade ago as a straightforward garage band influenced by the likes of DMZ, Crime, and the New York Dolls, but on their new double album, Public Mental Health System, they’ve resuscitated that pre-orthodox punk aesthetic. The tunes average five or six minutes—only the shortest comes in at three—and combine the aggressive rhythmic simplicity of punk with the far-out freedom of 21st-century psychedelia. Singer and guitarist Nick Myers calls it “a non-concept double album about depression,” but the music seems more like a cure for ADHD—a dose of Ritalin for concentration-impaired echo boomers with surgically implanted iPods.
