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 has always done what he needs to do to get the people UP on their feet to get DOWN and boogie.
Going mobile with his trike and/or trailer at Burning Man, or Pedalpalooza as well as some 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, Manoj, after hearing Diablo play (the old school way, with two iPods) at a mutual friend's Birthday Party, Manoj offered to begin training to help Diablo improve his transitions (that is, learn to beat match) and after many years and much practice Diablo -Dirty Diablo is beginning to take it to the next level . . .
Bitten hard by the community radio bug after getting on air 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 starting a new biweekly late night show: The Sacred Circle "TEMENOS" -Radio Show -
Turn in every other Thursday at Midnight (Technically Friday Morning) Starting July 4th, 2014 at:

Humpty Dumpty fell down that's his hard time
Jack B. Nimble what nimble and he was quick
But Jam Master cut faster Jack's on Jay's dick
Now Little Bo Peep cold lost her sheep
And Rip van Winkle fell the hell asleep
And Alice chillin somewhere in Wonderland
Jack's servin Jill a bucket in his hand
And Jam Master Jay's making out our sound
The turntables might wobble but they don't fall down . . .
. . .And like all fairy tales end
You'll see Jay again my friend!
I've been involved with KBOO for more than half my life - definitely the better half.
Presently doing the 3rd and 5th Wednesday 5:30-7am on Pastures of Plenty.
and THE SINGER/SONGWRITER EDITION of the Monday Sampler on the 1st Mondays of the month 2 - 4pm.
Videographer by Day with my company EMA Video Productions - and Folk Music DJ when ever I can.
Playing mostly contemporary folk music from the 60s and present day.
ITs unfortunate that the great music from the 60s does not get much play anymore. Artists like Tom Paxton,Doc Watson,Pete Seeger,Peter Yarrow, Ian Tyson,Gordon Lightfoot, Donavon and Joni Mitchell (just to name a few) had something to say and said it so well through music.
I feel so fortunate to be able to share my music tastes with the Portland Community here on KBOO.
