Needle Exchange: A DJ Questionaire with DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid

Years DJing: The Kid started at KWVA radio in Eugene in 1995. Anjali began DJing house parties around Portland in 2000. We made our club debut as a duo on New Year's Eve 2000 and we never turned back.

Genres: Bollywood, bhangra, urban desi, global bass, reggaeton, dembow, moombahton, Latin trap.

Where you can catch me regularly: We've been throwing ANDAZ, our monthly bhangra and Bollywood party since 2002. It goes down every last Saturday of the month at the Analog.

Craziest gig: We played all four nights at Sasquatch in 2011. Every set was crazy, but the first night we headlined the dance tent for almost four hours. Before our set, the tent filled up with thousands of people, and when the Kid went onstage to make sure our DJ setup was sorted, the crowd started screaming. We still run into kids who saw us that weekend. We heard from more than one person that if they were having a bad trip, they would seek out our sound to bring back the good vibes.

My go-to records: Nucleya feat. Avneet Khurmi, "Laung Gawacha"; Tropkillaz, "Mahabbah"; Badshah & Aastha Gill, "Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai"; Alo Wala feat. Jahdan Blakkamoore, "Cityboy"; Soniye, "Chachacha."

Don't ever ask me to play…: There are a lot of awful Bollywood hits we avoid playing, but one we both despise and have managed to never play is "Radha" from the Student of the Year soundtrack.

NEXT GIG: DJ Anjali & the Incredible Kid spin at ANDAZ at the Analog Cafe & Theater, 720 SE Hawthorne Blvd., on Saturday, Sept. 24. 9 pm. $5 before 10 pm, $10 after. 21+.
