Beats without Borders and Frenetic Edge are at it again! This time we bring you incredible beats and world class, hard hitting dance from all over the world!

El Papachango from Argentina moved to the states as a young adult and brought with him a love of music from South America that he blended with West Coast underground beats to create a groove that is unique and infectious to dance floors everywhere. Sexy, soulful and funky sounds come out of him even when he’s fast asleep. El Papachango is also one of the core creators of the legendary El Circo, one of San Francisco’s most prominent avant-garde performance groups that has been delivering music with a grip of very talented artists on massive systems across the planet, like Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, Freq Masty, Dj Laura, Antennae and many others. His latin fusion and hip hop influence leaves audiences stunned – with a sense of the mystical rooted in a very tangible dance floor experience.

Sweet Anomaly:
Originally hailing from Montreal, Sweet Anomaly came west in the late 90s. He soon became involved in the local Vancouver scene and began to build his reputation for sweet down tempo morning sets and marathon dance parties. For many years he has been touring the west coast festival circuit. Sharing the stage with countless talented local and international artists. His take on dance music is in constant flux, always new flavours are being added to the mix, no genre is off limits, his sets are journeys through his current tastes. The aim is to create timeless experiences wherein the newest sounds may intermingle with those of the past. The result is an eclectic, emotional and memorable dance party! VIVA!

Amar Solunamar:
Amar's taste cuts a path through an abundance of musical selections and leads dancefloors into a hypnotic sway like snakes before the charmer. Whether it's breaks, bhangra house, drum & bass or downtempo, the global nature of Amar's sets bridges a multi-culti span from the world to the Bay Area and beyond!

Unmata (Amy and Kari)
Performing at major festivals and events across the country and across the globe, tribal fusion powerhouse UNMATAs high energy brand of dance has packed the house and electrified audiences at venues of all sizes. Whether using fire, swords, or just the sweat off their own bodies UNMATA always satisfies. UNMATA are out to blow the doors off Tribal Fusion Bellydance.

Dahlia Moon
"Dahlia's dancing defies categories. She is neither Egyptian or Tribal, Fusion or Gypsy, but she is all of these rolled into one. She does not just interpret the music; she oozes it. Whether it is Middle Eastern, Jazz, Balinese or Japanese, music is part of her being. This is what you see when you watch Dahlia dance: the essence of music in physical form." - Leila of Cairo

Calamity Sam
Most known for her musicality and ability to connect with the audience, Calamity Sam is not afraid to ham it up and show her sense of humor on stage. She has been a featured performer and instructor in France, Holland, Spain, England, and across the U.S. Sam is based in Oakland, CA where she teaches Unmata/Hot Pot I.T.S., co-produces Taverna Nights with Tatyana Balte, and the Tribal Fest Afterparty with DJ Amar. You’ll find her regularly in Los Angeles performing at Zulu Lounge, and producing an Improv night in L.A. called Eclectic Ensemble with DJ Amar.
