Urban Latino Radio staff visited the Latin Mixx Showcase event July 20th 2010 and experienced history in the making. Performances ensued from Sito Rock,  Mala Reignz, Juganot, Fuego, and more. A lot of upcoming talent got to show off their skills and east coast met some west coast acts (Dont worry there were no fights lol). Among colleagues of the industry that i have known for many years, I learned that over time you can achieve your goals if you have a passion for what you do and you are persistent. They may not know it but these DJs are paving the way for the next generation. I knew these DJs before they blew up and i am proud to still have them in my life today. An incredible set and tribute to Roc Raida by DJ Fatfingaz is on my you tube below ( youtube.com/jackiedamodel ) as well as 3 Major DJs goin in with “Table Manners” – DJ Yonny, DJ Finesse, and DJ Spin One. Each as elite as the next.. enjoy the footage and the pictures. Unfortunately the performance footage wasnt too clear so i couldnt post it, but take a peek on the DJs!

Around the beginning of my clubbing and promoting days I met a special man his name DJ CARL BLAZE, he was close to my good friends in NJ the REDEYE ENT company and close to many DJs in NYC as well as promoters and Radio hosts. The week before he was killed I promised we would hang out and catch a movie or just go out with mutual friends and stuff we even spoke about nightlife as i was just stepping into the scene and learning all the tricks of the trade, he was a down to earth cool guy. I never got that opportunity, the following week the club society lost him at the hands of a murderer. R.I.P. DJ Carl Blaze, our prayers have been answered and you can finally rest in peace. The killer was finally found.

below story via ny times:

The accused gunman charged in a brutal Bronx kidnapping and execution-style murder last month has been identified as a possible suspect in the slaying of one of the city’s most popular hip-hop deejays four years ago, The Post has learned.

Zarnoff Taylor, 23, who is accused of shooting two men — one fatally — and dumping their bodies on a Bronx street, surfaced as a suspected shooter in the slaying of DJ Blaze after being nabbed in a recent roundup of violent drug-gang members and motorcycle thieves in Washington Heights.

Taylor is allegedly part of a gang known for operating along a 10-block stretch of Vermilyea Avenue in Manhattan’s Inwood section — the same area where Blaze was killed on Dec. 7, 2006.

Blaze — whose real name was Carlos Rivera — went by the name Carl Blaze while working for Power 105.1 FM. He was shot 13 times when he stopped in his old neighborhood to visit friends after spinning records in the X-Bar in The Bronx earlier in the night.

When his body was found, his large, $20,000, gold- and diamond-studded chain with the letters “CB” was missing.

Cops believe Blaze was set up by someone who knew he’d be in the neighborhood and sporting pricey jewelry.

On April 16, Jonathan Torres and Juan Quinones were dumped from a 2001 Dodge Caravan on a desolate street in The Bronx.

Torres was dead; Quinones, although badly wounded, survived.

Erick Right (born Erick Rodriguez in Brooklyn, New York) is an R&B/Pop singer of Puerto Rican descent, known for his collaborations with such artist as Alexis y Fido, Wisin y Yandel, DJ Nelson and many others.

Influenced by the many genre’s of music Erick Right was born in Brooklyn, NY & raised in Union City, New Jersey where he began his talent’s in musical theater before moving on to become a recording artist. The transition came when he was introduced to a local DJ who was looking for talent to work with. It was a short lived union, but he proceeded on working with many of the local talent.

By age 17 he was making a name for himself among clubs and venues by performing for promotional recognition. He later gained momentum when he began to work with major reggaeton artist, beginning with his first introductory feature on Alexis y Fido’s 5 letras remix. After that intro to the reggaeton genre he was featured on three studio albums including Wisin y Yandel’s Grammy winning album for Best Latin Urban “Los Extraterrestres”.

He has also been featured on a number of official remix’s and has now better established himself with his now popular collaboration on DJ Nelson’s “Strip Club Remix” which gained radio airplay and production of a music video. He has a strong international following and online underground audience that follows the music he places out there. “I have a lot in store for my upcoming projects and a lot of note worthy collaborations”, says the young well spoken artist, “I’m at the very beginning of it all and I have more to come”. This promising young artist is a Singer/Song writer with all the potentials of a future Superstar.

I had the pleasure of having Erick Right as a friend thru his career and i believe he flourished from a singer to a true icon for RnB artists. He came to La Esquina Radio show on Urban Latino Radio for an interview Feb 6, 2010. We completely support his new singles “Party Girl” and “Don’t Let Go”. He is a sensation here in the US as well as over seas look out for Erick Right he is the future of RnB!

First of all let me say, i did not promote this venue. Second.. i think that this Help Me Howard segment is hilarious, and i will share it with you. To make a long story short Halloween 2009 at Tavern on the Green was supposed to be a night filled with costumes, fun, and excitement. Instead many patrons were left out of the fun and subjected to riots and losing large sums of money. Party Goer’s bought pre paid tickets and reserved bottles only to get there and be told it was at capacity and there was no chance of getting in. All of this has to do with fake tickets that were printed by a third party not the actual owners. On the inside tip i am a club promoter myself and i am happy i wasn’t there!.  They had a pre party right before that spilled over the time crunch limit, go figure. When Help Me Howard went to the address provided he heard the ill excuses “he doeasnt live here”, “go away i have swine flu” wow seriously??.. Check out part 1 & 2 of Help Me Howard segment recorded by yours truly:
