Here we go with our second FEX installment in Oakland. Shout to Kush Arora for setting things off with us last month. The vibes were definitely right as we branched out far, musically.
This month we have the Bay Area’s own renaissance man, JUAN G. Just back from his trip to Ghana, I know he has mad stories to share with us so come check him out. More on Juan G in this SF Weekly article. There’s definitely a lot of common ground between music, travels and digging between him and me and I’m definitely looking forward to Thursday, May 11th at The Legionnaire – 2272 Telegraph Ave, Oakland. More info on the FB Event page.

To the people of Oakland, FEX (Foreign Exchange) is a collective, music label and party-rocking outfit exploring music culture and highlighting dance music from all over the world.
We took the concept of internationalism and thought to push and explore the music which represents our collective backgrounds. Through music we can break down borders, explore our identities and of course rock the dance floor.
We strive for culturally aware music that explores undercurrents while respecting humanity. Diverse sounds for diverse people. We gets down, we lift up. There’s lots of names for this movement. Let’s be in conversation through music.
