Serpentine 

An eclectic dance party curated by Jasmine Infiniti and 8ULENTINA.

If a party flier has Jasmine Infiniti and 8ULENTINA’s names on it, you can bet it will include a selection of next-level sounds that will get a crowd moving yet are a far cry from your typical throwback-oriented dance party. The Oakland DJs opt for electronic music subgenres with futuristic aesthetics, high BPMs, and international influences — skillfully mixing disparate subgenres in the process. While Jasmine Infiniti often opts for glitchy house, 8ULENTINA often combines elements of traditional Middle Eastern percussion and vocals with bass-driven club beats. The duo teams up for Serpentine, a dance party at the radical community center Qilombo also featuring Chicago DJ Ariel Zitana, Drusilla, and Foozool — another excellent DJ who is 8ULENTINA’s collaborator on the popular monthly party, Club Chai, at Alena Studios.
