Dead Druglords is a one-night party/event involving a dj set, Latin mash-up and live performers with a visual and interactive show. The presentation develops a narco-aesthetic language, heavily influenced by the imaginary of the Latin drug lords of the 80s and 90s in the USA. Live video projections of animated sequences and DJ sets of Salsa and Reggaeton-mashups will entertain and engage the public.
Among other venues, the Dead Druglords have performed live at co-prosperity sphere Chicago, A/V Happy Hour- Experiments In Sound, Light and Video at IU Bloomington, Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts and Boots Contemporary Art Space in St. Louis, MO.
