Dubstep? ...Yes, Please!

Dub Dorado has rapidly become my favorite night among all nights to go out and enjoy myself.

In the view of some, I probably enjoy myself entirely too much at El Dorado every 2nd and 4thWednesday of the month.  My response is simply: “How can I not”?

I have to be honest and say that I didn’t know an incredible amount about the “dub- step scene” before jumping into my first Wednesday of “Dub Dorado”.  I deeply felt whatever the hell was inside this form of electronic music (the breakdowns, the transitions, etc.) and that is something I simply couldn’t deny.  I can’t begin to explain to you how incredibly hard I dance in unison with an entire crowd to this phenomenon that has seemingly taken over the nights in San Diego.  You’ll just have to witness.

We would love to see you out at the next Dub Dorado.  You should come expecting the usual suspects.  Head$hake (Mintphonic), Austin Speed, Mr. Biggs (Turntable Lab), and as always a very promising headlining talent will take you to another dimension of sound and pleasure that you never knew existed.

Without a doubt, after a few nights of Dub Dorado, it rapidly became my favorite among all nights to go out and literally let go of every single inhibition.  Make it yours as well. Don't believe me? We captured all of them so far: 

Dub Dorado

Dub Dorado II

Dub Dorado III

Dub Dorado IV

Dub Dorado V

I may even get naked with you next time this Wednesday September 8th, right there on the dance floor.  Stranger things have happened!

We are in the age of consent...

Anytime the majority of a female crowd decides to wear more bracelets than clothing while jumping, in unison, to music that makes you feel as euphoric as the dru... glow sticks? You can count me in. Nothing short of completely “non-drug” induced euphoria was flowing though the system thanks to beats from the likes of BassFreakz, Headshake, Myron Eugene, and of course Pornscore. The reason we were all there was in celebration of Pornscore’s new CD release, and we weren’t leaving until satisfied. If you didn’t make it you weren’t breathing, but luckily, Turbo.FM has you covered.  We’ve got video and photos. We simply love to relive and can’t get enough of the Sugar – Pornscore CD Release Party. I’m new here.
What is the legal age of consent in California, again?
It doesn’t matter.  Give me your bracelet anyway, and make sure you do it with a very smooth, fluid motion.

New Format (AGAIN!) - and the biggest changes yet!

Photo By Tim KingAs promised in our last feature, we told you to keep a look out on the site for some changes. Well here it is:

As most of you already know this is a one man show, I shoot and edit everything on the site. Now I have contributors and guest editors from time to time and I am very thankful to those who have supported me in growing my photography into a site and format that keeps you coming back for more. I would especially like to thank Joey "Headshake" Maldonado, Nicole Novak and all the models, designers and DJs that have helped me in the past and will continue to help me.

I have found out two things about my current format: A: two weeks is too long between posts, and B: Two weeks is too soon between posts. On the former, I feel like I'm constantly posting new imagery but the feature is going unnoticed after the first time its read. On the latter, I am finding that scheduling a Writer, Model, Designer, MUA, DJ/Band and Location has proven to be a challenging endeavor to say the least, sometimes it takes weeks just to find a schedule that works. 

So, what does this mean? 

Well, from this post on I want to center on the events, music artists, designers, models, places and people I come across while on assignment. I have gotten very positive feedback for the new site and for the most part it wont change, ESPECIALLY the exclusive content. For example, I shot Fare Soldi earlier this year and I would have loved to do a more intimate feature on them including the photos I shot at my studio that night. But because I had committed to a format it fell by the wayside. So I will continue to do features like I have been on a much more unstructured timeframe, but NOW you will hopefully get more content and a more enriching experience from the site. 

Well, Without further adeu, my first post:

What a Week!

Memorial week could quite possibly have been the most booked I have been in months! With Riviera magazine keeping me busy during some of the days. I think I had 9 gigs in 5 days! I am just now recovering from the weekend. 

Coming off a week of Celebrity Golf Tournament in Rancho Sante Fe, where I had an opportunity to shoot Drew Brees, Trent Dilfer, Rollie Fingers and Scott Erickson to name a few, I fell right into Memorial Day Weekend completely unprepared. And I'm usually prepared for anything!

DubDorado and My birthday week were amazing and I just cant express the excitement I have for the coming months on that project. Coming into the weekend I, quite frankly, had tunnel vision for only one show... Deadmau5 at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. The Intervention parties are usually not the crowd I would choose to hang out in but for this show I couldnt resist it when my contacts at the marketing department for the hotel contacted me to shoot for them. 

Joel Zimmerman is not a DJ... he is a musician. I would love to write about his music and how it has revolutionized the House Music Scene and how music is delivered from the web, but honestly, I'd rather talk about his presence back stage. Deadmau5 is debatably, next to Oakenfold, the biggest name the Intervention Party has ever seen. His fans, that kept security busy, were definitly an indication of this. Joel had just come off of a 24 hour sleepless trip to SD, his manager and him both looked as if sun was the last thing they wanted to see. Those of you who are familiar with Deadmau5, know that "Pool parties" are not really their bag.


From his attitude when his manager was "Choking" him for a fan photo (above left). To his reaction to the photo I requested of him and I (above right), all the way to the actual show you could tell that as the sun [redbull, champagne] took effect that they caught their second (or fifth) wind.

The show was everything you would think it would be. All the tracks mixed fresh for you live, along with some new stuff you haven't heard. He even through in his own version of Rage Against The Machine's "Killing in the Name"

As a contrast to Deadmau5's logarithmic increase in attitude thoughout the day, Setup man AFROJACK was absolutely rested, calm and ULTRA COOL

As cool as the (extremely tall) Afrojack was while local Jon Dadon was on the decks prior to him, this did not reflect on his set at all. He got the crowd going while still keeping that cool vibe that has made him so famous.

I really tried to capture an Intimate look into this show with my photos. These here are just the tip of the Iceburg, see the rest in the full gallery.


On memorial day I tried to relax by getting together with some friends for a great BBQ before I started right back up again the next day. The Slip-n-Slide was a nice touch though!

Wednesday morning I get a text from the Owner of U31, saying "you better be coming tonight with your camera!" "Coming Where?" I thought, I hadn't been booked officially and I had heard a rumor about something going down by Seth Combs from City Beat. Come to find out that Bone-Thuggs-n-Harmony were to play a secret set at the "U" after their HOB show. I hadn't heard of them since I worked in a record store in 1995, and the "Post Easy-E" E. 1999 Eternal album came out! Well, the show was brief to say the least... but to grab a few shots before a crowd of maybe 200 was a treat. 

I bearly had a chance to download the cards from Wednesday when I realized that Thursday was Buddy Akai, a band I have done significant work with, first full length CD release party at the Casbah. I did the two inside photos of their new CD so I wanted to see my work for the first time and congratulate them.

Bryan Stratman & Michael Cooper's Hyena Project set things up, let me be very clear: these guys put out a ton of good music for a duo! They are a very good fit on any bill with the likes of Buddy Akai and will do very good things in the future. I can understand now why Coop wanted to concentrate on the Hyena project.

Ironically this is the smallest stage I have ever shot my friends from Buddy Akai, I have shot them at the [click for galleries] Flame, U31, and Voyeur (Twice). I'll tell you one thing, this time was a blast. You really could witness the pride Memo, Rotney, Alvaro and Waly had about the new album. Nite Vision residents/promoters Gabe Vega and Adam Salter both made an effort to attend and show their support before heading back Downtown. I have never seen Waly so into the show before, he was right there, almost in the crowd! I heard a few new tracks that had not been performed before and I like what I heard.

The weekend brought me back in touch with Lee Schneider (aka Groundfloor) we used to work quite a bit together and he also was instrumental in getting me gigs that I still have to this day. I always have fun when I work for Lee and this one was no different. Thee Mike B headlined things this weekend and it seemed like Deja Vu. You see, Mike B was here a week ago with his other, admittedly better, project: Camo UFOs at El Dorado's new Dubstep Night Dub Dorado. 

After the beats at U31, I was called by one of the promoters to stop by Reset SD at the Sports Arena. Ok, you don't have to ask me twice. While I was only there for about an hour, I did get a chance to see Flying Lotus and BSOD half Steve Duda. I had seen Lotus before and this set was just as good if not better than his other shows. The Real McCoy was Steve Duda, after seeing Deadmau5 (the other half of BSOD) just six days prior it was amazing to see the contrasting styles of two electronic musicians separate from their project. My only wish is that I would have known I was going to shoot this event and I would have brought some of my specialty lenses, oh well, I got some amazing shots.

All in all I think it was a great week to start this new format... please leave your comments below and leave your good and bad feedback! And don't forget, see more of all the events above in the photos section of Turbo.fm!!
