It's Grammy Weekend, and LA's Subsuelo is the Party To Be At

Toy believes that this, mixed in with biculturalism and bilingualism from both Mexicans in the US and Mexicans in Mexico, has given birth to a new generation were everything is legit: "Take the boys from 3ball for example, it's a generation composed of mash-ups. They bring in emo with say, nationalist ideals and dembow. Plus they have two realities: the cyber one composed of social media and then the real reality. All of this is in their brain. They are wired like that," he says.

Nice pants.

When I ask him if he has abandoned the underground music scene and gone mainstream he smirks and says: "I am not afraid to go out there and find new sounds, discover interesting rhythms. Just like Diplo, him and I are a representation of contemporary music. We didn't go mainstream. Mainstream came to us."

James Eysenbach from Boston attempts -and fails- to play his mini harmonica after the party. When asked what he thought about Subsuelo he replies, "It's a different scene than what I'm used to..." He probably belongs more in an Abercrombie ad.
