VANCOUVER — Peligro Tropical is one of the most unique global dance parties you’ll ever experience in Vancouver, maybe even the world.

Translated, Peligro Tropical morphs into “Tropical Danger” and features an electric combination of genres from cumbia futuro and dancehall to dem bow, baile funk, moombahton and reggaeton. “Peligro, to me and the team, means a chance at being able to showcase a variety of cultures through global club music,” explains event co-founder and resident DJ Dr. Seiz a.k.a. Mario. “Being born in Guatemala, I’ve always been around very high energy percussions and rhythmic melodies and have been lucky enough to grow up with many different musical influences throughout my childhood.”

Celebrating over two years of tropical parties, the team is excited to be welcoming Peligro’s first out of town guest, Rizzla from the label Fade To Mind. “Rizzla is a producer we’ve looked up to for quite some time now,” Mario shares. “When I heard he was going on tour, I thought it would be a great opportunity to put on a show for our city and showcase an amazing artist who has always pushed the envelope to broaden the musical taste of his listeners. Rizzla’s music is a perfect blend of club sounds mixed Caribbean and Latinx influences.”

Try something different, experience a little tropical danger and celebrate a different side of club music that you might not be familiar with, you may just find out that your new favorite tune created somewhere on the other side of the globe.

Peligro Tropical takes place at Fortune Sound Club’s Special Project Space Friday, January 27th.
