FRIK N FRAK ( Broken Beat / REUP) Laptop vs Vinyl

Es el dúo formado por Jon Baker y Kid Nasty.
Su sets son un proceso creativo que resulta de la mezcla entre los finos surcos del vinilo versus los códigos binarios de la computadora consiguendo siempre dosis de breaks y dub altamente bailables.

SKRAPEZ: TENSHUN & DETH SHEPARD Live Hip Hop Beats/ Turntablism

dirty hip hop beats and scratching created on the fly, coming out to BB night to perform a special set

DISRUPTOR ( SHARE SD ) Live Electronic

a tru hidden talent in the SD scene, Disrupter has released tracks on Audiocon and Ultramodern records
his live sets are an original mix of hypnotic glitch funk

CUTTY MAN ( Broken Beat) Vinyl

The cuttyman reaches into the vaults of vinyl once again

Total Scence @ Club Montage

[ English ]
Last Friday, I was lucky enough to share the booth with Q-Project from Total Science, doing the visuals for the night. What a night! It's been so long since I been to a drum n' bass event, it is my first love and it's the style of music that motivates me the most to make visuals to, All the local Djs that played where amazing as well, great night!.
I also got to play a little with the Pioneer DVJ turntables, wich I have never used before, although intimidating at first they where pretty easy to figure it out, and fun to use too.
Check back for video footage of the night!

El Viernes pasado, tuve la suerte de compartir cabina con Q-Project de Total Science haciendo visuales durante esa noche. Increible! Hacia tanto que no iba a un buen evento de drum n bass, mi primer amor, y el estilo de musica que mas me motiva para hacer visuales. Todos los Djs fueron increibles, muy buena noche!.
Tambien pude jugar un poco con las Pioneer DVJ turntables, que nunca habia usado antes, al principio me intimidaron un poco pero fueron bastante facil de utilizar, y divertido tambien.
Pronto pondre un video sobre este evento.

UVA Live | Buenos Aires

[ English ]
Here is a little clip I found from the OneDotZero festival that took place in Buenos Aires, featuring United Visual Artists.
As usually top notch, one of the many things I love about UVA is that the content is changing depending on where they are performing, I just noticed a lot of information on the screen that features a lot of local (from Argentina) feeds of random information about television networks / sattelite and news.

[ Castellano ]
Aqui un pequeno clip que encontre sobre la presentacion de United Visual Artists en el festival OneDotZero que se llevo a cabo en Buenos Aires hace poquito. Como es de esperar impecable. Una de las tantas cosas que me gustan de los actos de UVA es como cambian el contenido visual, dependiendo de donde esten llevando a cabo su acto, en las pantallas se puede leer lo que pareciera ser informacion sobre programacion televisiva, noticias varias e informacion satelital.

Starline Theorie | Beauty Bar

[ English ]
Here are some photos from last night's event with Starline Theorie at the Beauty Bar.
Because I was doing the visuals it's always a bit hard to leave my gear and go the front and take pictures, I need to get a clone of myself so I can do both.

Stop Motion Test 01

[ English ]
Here is my first attempt in probably 15 years to stop motion, as a kid I used to make these with my dad's video camera and a bunch of playmobil, Now my set up is a bit better, I use my Canon 300D with Remote Capture then I export as Quicktime video using iPhoto. Nothing fancy, but I been meaning to get back into this for quite some time now, too bad I don't have my playmobils anymore.

[ Castellano ]
Aqui mi primer intento al stop motion despues de por lo menos unos 15 años, Cuando era chico me colgaba a hacer de estos con mis playmobil y la camara de video de mi padre. Ahora mis herramientas estan un poco mas avanzadas, En vez de video, use mi camara de fotos Canon 300D con Remote Capture, luego exporto a Quicktime video con iPhoto, nada especial, pero hacia tiempo que queria empezar a probar esto de nuevo, lastima que no tengo mas playmobil.
