From stealing his parents’ Motown 45s to spin on his Fisher Price Turntable as a young child back in the 70s . . .
. . . to using a splitter with two Walkmans to mix tapes at house parties in the 80s (Then moving to Discmans in the 90s and eventually to iPods in the 2000s)
Diablo will do whatever he has to, to get you to get on up and get down!
Going mobile with his trike and/or trailer at Burning Man, Pedalpalooza or local street fairs and parades, he’d blow minds (and Bubbles) while rocking the spirit with some radical “Time-Based Art” accompanied by a Funky-Ass musical soundtrack.
Taken under-wing by one of his favorite humans, fellow dancer and all around amazing DJ, the only and only Manoj, who began training Diablo to help him improve his transitions, he was subsequently visited and gifted some advanced technology by a mysterious “time-traveler”, so after many years and much practice Diablo is beginning to take it to the next level . . .
Bitten hard by the community radio bug after being gifted an on-air slot on BMIR – Burning Man Information Radio (Black Rock City, Nevada -94.5 FM), he’s carried that passion back to his home town and the local Listener-Powered, Non-Corporate Community Radio Station – KBOO Community Radio, (Portland, Oregon- 90.7 FM) where he is hosts a biweekly late night radio show: The Sacred Circle “TEMENOS” -Radio Show –
One of the few DJs to have played EVERY single “What The Festival” since its inception in 2012, from the original OMG Lounge and the old Equinox Stage to backing up daytime acoustic performances at the Shinto A Go-Go & Rocking the Silent Disco, and for the last two years Diablo has also been hosting a radio broadcast LIVE from WTF?!
So be sure to tune in for another VERY special remote broadcast on KBOO Community Radio by Diablo-Dirty Diablo coming at you LIVE from What The Festival at the scenic Wolf Run Ranch.
One again we’ll be showcasing the musical and visual artists at this year’s festival with interviews, music and interactions with the producers and participants, exploring what make this such a uniquely immersive, entertaining and intimate festival.
Be sure to tune in just before 10pm on Thursday June 15th to catch all the excitement!
