SPECIAL RESIDENT SET BY CALI
Like, El Dia de Muertos that falls just after, at its core, Halloween is a time to connect to the world of spirits that surrounds us. Its a time when a portal to the ancestral realm is open wider than usual and those who lived before congregate with the living to celebrate another harvest and send us into the winter fortified and protected.
Its fitting that this special Halloween edition of thePeople features DJ Cali, someone dedicated to traversing the bridge between the living and the immortal essences with music. For Cali, djing is a way of keeping the the door to the spirit realm wide open, letting timeless sounds bring in power and inspiration from the other side. As part of the Relevant Sound crew rocking parties all around the Bay, Cali has paid dj dues to last him a career. His exquisite mixing, detailed attention to sound, and his insatiable appetite for new music set him apart. You may have discovered Cali rocking alongside Bay legends like Rob Rhythm or at thePeople breaking soulful future classics that left dancers lying in a pool of sweat. And now, more recently, Cali's Tuesday all vinyl sets at Room 389 in Oakland have become a staple for East Bay music lovers.
thePeople is a perfect place for a Halloween celebration because its always been a place to show a side of yourself that you normally keep hidden. And, like halloween, dancing is a way to explore the spirits waiting in the dark to be discovered. But don't be scared, Cali will be your guide through the spirit realm. No matter how deep he takes you, the result will be the feeling that you are more alive than ever.
