Nobody (Elvin Estela): a highest uncommon denominator kind of DJ.
Well, it looks like Elvin Estela Week here at the Weekly. My Sprawl of Sound column includes a review of his and Niki Randa's Blank Blue album on Ubiquity; we run his well-informed list of top albums with references to “blue” or “water” in their titles on Heard Mentality; and now we're tipping you off to his DJ appearance tonight at the long-running Good Foot monthly at Que Sera in Long Beach. (Nobody is Estela's DJ and producer moniker.)
We've seen Estela spin psych rock and hip-hop before, but not funk and soul, which are Good Foot's bread and butter (the night is hosted by the reliable dance-floor-fillers Dennis Owens and Scott Weaver [00 Soul].) So it should be interesting to see if Estela/Nobody can deliver the goods in these styles. My money's on him laying down some deep cuts for maximum mind and body satisfaction.
Que Sera, 1923 E. 7th St., Long Beach, (562) 599-6170; 9 p.m., $5.
