BIANCA OBLIVION para RIP
Conocer a Bianca Bracho alias DJ
Cuando está en su tierra natal Culver City, California,
Entonces no es necesario preguntarse por que Bianca nombró a su sello Club Aerobics, que maneja con su comadre Suga Shay. “Quiero hypear a la gente tanto como yo,” dice ella. “Porque aunque este en el booth, ya me veo en la pista, esperando el próximo track que me haga volar.” O como dice la pagina de Soundcloud de Club Aerobics, “we push tracks to make you move.”
Los sets de Bianca aterrizan en el dancehall, reggaeton,
To meet Bianca Bracho alias DJ Bianca Oblivion is to know that she loves doing. On her recent trip to Mexico City she made more friends than Team RIP has in years, thanks to her nonstop energy and drive to meet people.
At home in Culver City, Bianca is substitute teacher and tutor to kindergarten through 12th graders, specializing in Latin and science. After school she goes home, puts on bright blue lipstick, and DJs in LA clubs. Her monthly party Culosangeles, which she throws with DJ Francesca Harding, highlights artists and sounds across the Latinx and Afro-latinx spectrum. She also loves spending time with her family, including her 7 and 25 year old brother and sister. She’s inspiring in a wholesome way — like a beloved aerobics instructor who makes it all seem possible, achievable.
So maybe it’s obvious why she named her music label Club Aerobics, which she runs with fellow LA DJ Suga Shay. “I want the crowd to get as hyped up as I am,” says Bianca. “Because ultimately even though I’m in the booth, I’m still envisioning myself on the dance floor, waiting to hear the next track to make me go off.” Or as Club Aerobics Soundcloud puts it, “we push tracks to make you move.”
Bianca’s sets touch down on dancehall, baile funk, reggaeton, kuduro, grime and Jersey club. As a DJ, her motivation is the party itself. “I think what characterizes my style is not what genres I play, but the atmosphere and feeling I try to create. I’m not interested in playing experimental or esoteric type sets, I just want to get people excited and moving.” Like any good club aerobicist.
