10. Uproot Andy

Along with QUE BAJO?! party co-founder Geko Jones, Uproot Andy is one of the driving forces behind the melange of African sounds, cumbia, dancehall and electro dubbed “global bass” or “tropical bass.” He’s perhaps best known right now, though, for the Hold Yuh-rhythm-fueled mix of Los Rakas’ “Abrazame” that’s turned that tune into a global phenomenon. He’ll be on the turntables along with NY Tropical colleague Chief Boima at Habana Bar Saturday night.
