About Underdog: Born in Panama, Underdog came to DC at age seven with his mother and set down strong subcultural roots. He sees DJing as a mix of all genre’s and new aesthetics without conformity. His sets traverse the globe and delve in futurism on many levels. Bringing a “New Aesthetic”. His recent acclaim stems from his UNSEEN mixtape series which have expanded his listening audience and placed him outside of any playlist or genre-defined role. He’s shared the stage with artists like Femi Kuti, Bad Brains, Sango, Zap Mama, Common, Black Coffee, Kelela, A Tribe Called Red, Questlove, and Thundercat. From AFROPUNK to almost every major festival in NYC, DJ Underdog is currently holding down residencies with okayafricaDC, electrafriqueNYC.
