Drexl Presents a new and exciting night in the booming Downtown Oakland. On First Fridays, The Bounce Exchange is here with Resident Deejays Methods & Dion Decibels + guests. Get your comfortable dancing shoes to shake to as The Bounce Exchange displays a rotation of tastemakers playing varied beats & styles. Staying away from the norm of predictable dj sets, The Bounce Exchange's top priority is to remain eclectic, upbeat, and fresh in its program.

All happening in the cozy Mezzanine of Drexl, while the quality crafted cocktails and ice cold drinks keep the night flowing downstairs.

For the month of July, Bounce Exchange has the honor to present the immaculate Jeremy Sole out of Los Angeles, CA. Sole is on a mission to show how music is a singular universal language, and that each culture’s rhythms and melodies are no more than slang--different accents of the same mother tongue. His DJ sets, remixes and original compositions juxtapose world sounds and experimental beats into a sonic ritual - a celebration of life out loud.

As Co-Founder and resident deejay of "Afro Funké", Sole and his partners drew a loyal crowd every week for 15 years. This was his arena for Afrobeat, Latin, Brazilian, Indian, Jamaican and other authentic and remixed world rhythms. Hundreds of international guests joined them over the years, from deejays Rich Medina and Cut Chemist to impromptu jam sessions with Zap Mama and Stevie Wonder.

Join in for this special evening as Jeremy Sole takes us into his world of soundscapes!
