The Cathedral City Skatepark celebrated its grand opening on December 12, 2015.

Epidemic Skateshop hosted the event with a best trick contest, live screenprinting and lots of free giveways.

Thanks you to Epidemic Skateshop for inviting me to pley a DJ Set.

We had a great event. Thank you to all skaters, community leaders, skate companies, and supporters that helped make this park a reality.

Last Saturday Full Flexx Media hosted Digital Desert 2011 at The Palm Springs Convention Center. Having grown up in the desert I had never seen an all age event like this in Palm Springs. The event reminded me of when I used to listen to Hard House Music on repeat circa 1998.  The event was cracking and PLUR was in Full effect. Although we had some technical issues, I had fun Pley’n my set. Thank you to everyone for coming out & supporting the movement. It’s awesome to see events like this happing in the valley. Shout out to all the DJs/Artist who performed.  BIG SHOUT to Full Flexx Media, Kill at Will, The Coachella Valley Art Scene and Epidemic Skateshop!

Last weekend The Coachella Valley Art Scene and I hosted our monthly World Famous party at The Ace Hotel Palm Springs. It was my last DJ set in the valley before my performance at Coachella 2011. Epidemic Skateshop was in the house. It was the official release party for the Epidemic x Alf Alpha Sunglass (aka Hater Blockers). It was a awesome night! I had a blast pley’n for all the party people. Thank you to The Ace Staff and Everyone that came out. Shout out to everyone that was getting down on the dance floor. If you missed the night or want to relive the night, you can download the last two and a half hours of my DJ set below.
