PHILADELPHIA, PA – January 7, 2021 – Entercom announces the addition of Subsuelo member Canyon Cody as host of “Alternalido.” The Latin show, which launched in May 2020, features an expertly curated mix of alternative sounds from Latin artists around the world. The show will also welcome Subsuelo’s DJ Ethos, who will co-host a weekly mix segment. “Alternalido,” now featuring Canyon Cody and DJ Ethos, will be heard Sundays from 10:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. local time on nine Entercom alternative stations, effective January 10.
“Born and raised in Los Angeles, ‘Alternalido’ is fast becoming the leader in breaking, new Latin alternative rock,” said Jeff Federman, Regional President, Entercom. “As we expand across the country, Canyon Cody and DJ Ethos are the natural experts to grow the genre even further.”
“‘Alternalido’ has allowed us to expand our offering to better serve our diverse audiences across the country and we’re excited to add two dynamic talents to our program,” said Mike Kaplan, Alternative Format Captain, Entercom. “Canyon Cody and DJ Ethos are the soul of Subsuelo and we look forward to them bringing their rich Latin music taste to ‘Alternalido’ and add another layer to this widely popular show.”
“We are so excited about ‘Alternalido,’” said Cody. “When we first started Subsuelo, there weren’t many platforms where you could play the sort of music we love – this diverse, open-format mix of genres, languages and generations. ‘Alternalido’ is a perfect fit for Subsuelo because it’s one of those rare shows where we have the freedom to just celebrate all kinds of great music, without being stuck in some narrow box. Everything Subsuelo does is rooted in Latin music, but that’s a big umbrella with a lot of wiggle room. With ‘Alternalido,’ you’ll hear a little bit of everything, and hopefully discover your new favorite song, even if you don’t understand the lyrics. This is a really exciting time in Latin music, with so much innovation and experimentation happening all over, and we’re just grateful for the opportunity to support the scene and help it grow.”
Subsuelo is a Latinx DJ crew from Los Angeles that brings together a borderless, genre-bending mix of new music from around the world. Subsuelo started as a neighborhood house party in 2011 and eventually grew into a 10-member creative collective. Led by Canyon Cody and DJ Ethos, the Subsuelo crew features a diverse squad of instrumentalists, vocalists, dancers, photographers and visual artists united by the love of music. In 2016, Subsuelo co-founded Calentura along with LNL and iconic salsa label Fania Records. The critically-acclaimed project opened the vaults of Fania’s historic catalog, remixing previously unreleased tracks from Latin music legends Celia Cruz, Hector Lavoe and Willie Colón. Over the last 10 years, Subsuelo has toured across Latin America and the United States, performing at Coachella, Boiler Room, Supersónico, Red Bull Music Academy and more.
