Not sure if I talked about Hau5 of Hakubi already but here’s the skinny of it and excuse me if I get a bit real here. Sometime back in the fall, I expressed some frustration of San Antonio’s current EDM and nightlife scene and decided that I will not let things decay the way it’s doing anymore. Most of last year, I’ve been in the epicenter of shady event companies and drama that indeed goes against the PLUR ideologies that I have grown to learn and practice and it has hurt a lot of the scene. It stopped being about having a good time and more about a bunch of scrubs ruining the quality of the events taking place and the music being played, that’s when I say, “No More!”. I spoke with my wife Ame and let her know that if we are going to effect change, we have to do it ourselves, so as soon as we got back from Florida, we officially started up Hau5 of Hakubi Productions, LLC and did our first ever event, Progression Thursday 001.
I was sifting through my hard drive figuring out Throwback Thursday and found a pretty monumental interview, which never got released until today. This is my never-before seen shoot interview that took place hours before the 2nd Summerscape pre-party in 2012. Here I talk to Josh Newell, who was known as DJ Signs but now is known as JNewell, about who I am, what I am about, and the things that happened in 2012 that ended up shaping my career forever. Interesting enough, this was the day that I first met JNewell and ended up performing together at my first own underground massive, Ultima Nightkid.
