WEPA! Dj YUKICITO & Dj ELIXIR


Celebrate Labor Day weekend with an eclectic night of Latin and Afro-Caribbean rhythms including cumbia, reggaeton, salsa, samba and more—all infused with a healthy dose of bass and old-school hip-hop.

¡Wepa! resident DJ Elixir welcomes special guest DJ Yukicito (a.k.a. Yuki Shimotakahara) to the turntables on this special evening. Yukicito brings a unique vision and style, and has a music library that is as deep as it is varied. You can bet he'll be digging deep in his crates for this special event! Whether he's reworking tracks on the fly or debuting one of his own newly produced tracks, Yukicito never disappoints and always knows how to light the dance floor on fire.

YUKICITO (La Junta Sound System / Piña - LA)
Hailing from Osaka, Japan via Boyle Heights, CA, Yukicito is a diamond that keeps revealing shiny new facets. He first brandished his music production chops, then solid skill behind both the turntables and the soundboard, and again with his hands on a djembe, cuica, pandeiro and Colombian gaita flute. There are even rumors he gets around on a trumpet and trombone. Out on the floor, he dazzles the ladies with fluency in the dance languages--salsa, cumbia, merengue, forró, samba--he's got 'em all! Yuki's broad tastes span across music and, equally, food. He loves the fare from his homeland, but seems just as pleased ogling a dinner plate with anything from street tacos to fried chicken, not to mention an obsession with Cuties tangerines. Yukicito's plan for world domination is to travel all over with his music as the ticket.
