La Rumba Buena
La rumba buena means a great party and rumberas are people who love to dance. Expect to hear salsa, boogaloo, cumbia, guaguanco, son, rumba, descargas, mambo, cha-cha-cha, bomba, and plena from resident DJs Blancon and Drumspeak. With a stack of vinyl collected over a decade from across the Americas, they play out the sounds from the Latin diaspora and bring La Rumba Buena to Toronto.

Blancon
Blancon is a lover of music and hopes that emotion is reflected in every set he plays. Born and raised in Toronto, he's had the fortune to dig on multiple continents, and his sets reflect that musical journey. Host of the Skin Tight show on TRP, which ran from the station's inception to its close, he is honoured and humbled to share his love of music (and still doesn't think there are many feelings better than getting a dance floor going).

Drumspeak
The other half of La Rumba Buena, Drumspeak is known for his musical versatility and ability to create an instant vibe in any room or space. He has travelled the world collecting music, new and old, while carefully crafting his playlists that cater to any crowd.
