Deejay Julicio visits Seattle

I went to pick up my friend Deejay Julicio from the Sea-Tac airport around 11am. Since he was only going to be in Seattle for one day we decided to attempt a mountain of travels around the city.

Casual Industrees

Julicio visits Casual Industrees (L to R: Chris Tagge, Julicio, Dan Reid)


First stop was West Seattle and the Casual Industrees house. I wanted to show Julicio what the local art scene is like here in Seattle. The boys at Casual are producing some of Seattle’s most fun and innovative clothing designs out of Dan Reid’s house near Alki. They have a full screenprint operation up and running, with the ability to receive, design, screenprint, and ship all in one location.

Deejay Julicio visits the grave of Jimi Hendrix


Someone at the Casual house told him that Jimi Hendrix was buried nearby in Renton. As a musician you can’t pass through the city without visiting the grave of Jimi Hendrix. According to Julicio, “It’s like visiting Paris and not visiting Jim Morrison’s grave.” Kinda creepy, we both agreed, but we decided to visit for the adventure. Plus I’d never even been there and its a local landmark. It turned out to be a very classy memorial made of marble located at Greenwood Cemetary.

Julicio Pike Place Market

We headed to downtown Seattle so I could take him to my favorite happy hour sushi spot called Umi Sake House. We ate a couple Seattle Rolls, mmmmm, then went to scope the Pike Place Market.

Gum Wall Seattle

Gum Wall Seattle


I showed him the infamous Gum Wall. There is a gumball machine there and by my estimates they have sold well over a million gumballs. There is hardly a spot to put gum anymore, there are so many pieces all over the wall.

We went through the waterfront district and up to the Seattle Center. There is all kinds of cool stuff to do down there like the Science Center, the Seattle Skate Park and the International Fountain. Key Arena was hosting a live taping of the X-Factor TV show and all kinds of people were filing in.

By this time we started to get ready for a set at Ibiza Nightclub where Julicio was opening with MIC T at an album release party for 206 entertainment. After great performances by the two, we headed out to Bellingham to get prepared for Friday’s Summer Hiphop Kickoff party.

MIC T would use the inspiration of music, and being a new father, to strive for more legitimate ways of life while trying to leave darker days of crime and violence behind. After years of just freestyling and Spitting verses now and then, he almost gave up his persuit of a music career, when he ran into an old friend who brought him to Undercaste Studios. It would be beneficial as he was introduced to engineer Randy Ross and found a new home to record music. Less than 9 months after recording his first song he had finished his first EP “Wave to the Haters” and a mixtape “Dig It Out”. Soon to come are mixtapes “Dig It Out Vol. 2” and “Tricks Up My Sleave” while he works on a full length LP. MIC T brings strong lyrical ability with a lot of originality to the hip hop game.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to go film as a representative of the Wildcard crew during Snowboarder Magazine’s Superpark 15 at Mt Bachelor, Oregon. We used the footage to compile an edit for the Superpark Showdown Video Competition where videos go head to head against each other. Right now our video is up against an entry from Bataleon Snowboards, who based their edit off the rap movie CB4, with Chris Rock. While I gotta admit the Bataleon boys have a challenging entry, I think we produced a better edit. We even got the one foot frontside 720 by Scooty Vine.

Stephen Marley in Seattle, WA at the Showbox

Stephen Marley at the Showbox Seattle

Stephen Marley at the Showbox Seattle

Stephen Marley came to Seattle Sunday June 19th at the Showbox Downtown near the Pike Place Market during his Revelation, Pt. 1: The Root of Life – Stephen Marley tour. Stephen was joined by guest Sragga Benz for a 3 hour plus performance that included hits from Mind Control, Revelation, Pt. 1: The Root of Life, and Stephen’s father, the legendary Reggae master from Jamaica, Bob Marley. Its cool to see one of the Marley brothers anytime you can because they give off an aura of good vibes and you can feel somewhat closer to Bob Marley when you hear one of his classics recited by his son. Stephen Marley is joined by Ky-Mani Marley and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley as the singing sons Bob produced through his numerous relations with many women. When its a guy like Bob, it was best to spread his seed as much as possible. We benefit from the many members of the extended Marley family by getting a chance to continue the love and progression brought on by the love for reggae music. All in all in would rate a Stephen Marley concert two thumbs up for great crowd interaction, passionate music, and great drum playing. It amazed me that there was no opener, just hours of Stephen pumping us up with his hits. A highlight was seeing what seemed to be Stephen’s young son out dancing for a few songs, and the two female backup singers, who really get the crowd going.

I would like to introduce my friend Deejay Julicio to the peeps of the World. We met in Santiago, Chile through a mutual friend pro snowboarder Sebastian Camus. I was down there at the end of the South American snowboard season and we decided it would be fun to throw a party celebrating the change of weather to springtime. The party we threw was called Off The Snow to The Beach.

I edited up a bunch of the most recent footy from my collection and we got 1000 of our closest friends together at a club called Subterraneo. Deejay Julicio slayed it on the turntables. Ever since then I’ve wanted him to play a concert in Bellingham to show my friends back home how to party Chilean style. Now I finally have the pleasure of hosting him for the Summer Hiphop Kickoff at the Wild Buffalo on July 1st. Unfortunately we can’t party at the clubs till 8am in Whatcom County, otherwise I’m sure he’d play all night!

I had the privilege of working with the artist Son Duong yesterday. He asked Nick Ennen and I to come down to Seattle and film some behind-the-scenes footage of a couple magazine ad photo shoots he was doing with photographer Dan Manning. Son also had two gorgeous models there to participate in the shoot: Brenna Nickels and Brooke James.

Our first stop was Jewel Box Cafe in the Seattle Northgate Mall area. Its a pretty cool spot to lounge, with a rustic feel. Its a good place to kick back with coffee, tea, smoothies, bubble tea and crepes. The idea was to shoot a photo for an ad for Son of a Gun, the art company Son Duong runs.

The second stop was Acme Tattoo in Kent, Washington. Its a large shop with some cool owners that has a unique feel. We set up near the tattoo station in the middle of an array of art on wakeboards and skateboards. Everyone was discussing what tattoo we would get next and if we would even get one at all. In this location we were trying to establish the Skullcandy feel, and it seems to be the perfect location for it.

We had a great time, everyone got a pair of Skullcandy Headphones, and now there’s plenty of photos and footage to edit. Great work by Manning Shredtography getting those photos captured. Soon we will post our behind the scenes video of this photo shoot, but for now you will just have to enjoy these retrocamera photos from my phone.
