Thank you 2010! Now bring on 2011. I can't wait!

2010 was a very interesting year with lots of fun to be had. Just a quick overview of my year...

Mezclasonic tour w/ Camilo Lara (M.I.S.), Marcelo, Javier Romero, and the kids of D'Marquesina. The tour lasted a whole year bringing us to Chicago, Miami, NY, and LA. We had a lot of fun!

PARKED and Oktoberfest @ Governors Island w/ MeanRed Productions in Sept and Oct. These two massive events had thousands in attendance and a whole lot of organized chaos. I had a blast working on these projects even though it took a week to recover from each of these large scale events!

Remezcla Musica launch party @ Broadway East. This was an amazing production w/ Remezcla.com and some of the best up and coming Latin alternative performers. Nina Dioz, Zuzuka Poderosa, Sunsplash, and some great Djs as well. I wanted this production to go extra well and I think everyone was very happy.

CMJ Blood n' Bones international showcase @ Fontana's. This was a personal project I created during CMJ and it turned out to be a great success! The line up was a melting pot of international bands Hard Nips from Japan, Outernational from NY, R-Tronika from all over, and Les Handclaps from Montreal. I got to even sing the song "Barbarella Pop Club" I wrote in Spanish w/ Les Handclaps!!

There are so many other awesome projects and events I worked on this past year that I can't even list them all, but I'd like to say THANK YOU to everyone!!

I welcome 2011 with open arms and look forward to many more awesome things to come. I'm ringing in my new year with MeanRed Productions and The Rub @ Public Assembly. Should be a grand fiesta w/ lots of dancing and craziness....

MUSIC VIDEO: Powerpop princesa Denise Murz "Cuánto?"

I've been following the lovely powerpop princesa from Argentina Denise Murz for at least two years now. She's collaborated w/ a favorite of mine; the famous travesti La Prohibida from Spain. Her tracks are fun, sexy, and glitter w/ studio 54-style beats.

I included her song "Pretenciosa" in my Chula Pop Crush DJ mix a while back. You can hear more of her songs on her website and watch her new music video for the song "Cuánto?". In the 2008 Denise debuted her full ablum “Pretenciosa”.

Shhh, there's talks that she's coming to NYC soon;-)

I first discovered Zuzuka back in 2006 when I bought the Nossa Records compilation at Lower East Side store The Reed Space. I automatically fell in love w/ her song “Ai Voce Gosta” and have been following her music career ever since.

I'm happy I've been able to work w/ her on various events including Nacotheque, the Remezcla Musica launch party, and Que Bajo?!

She's a snazzy dresser, an energetic pixie w/ tons of life, an awesome live performer.

If you haven't already please vote for Zuzuka Poderosa TODAY on the MTV Iggy show!!

ZP grew up loving the raw Miami bass-inspired dance music Brazil calls funk and started throwing reggae and funk parties with members of the Nossa Crew when she moved to New York ten years ago. Eventually, the emcee and DJ started chatting in Portuguese on the mic and in studio — to the immediate and visceral delight of everyone within ear shot. She tells her origin story in greater detail in this great video interview.

Not only is she bringing her own brand of the hot Brazilian underground sound to the rest of the world, but from her international vantage point she operates like a provocatively rhyming hurricane, sucking up global riddims from ghettotech to dancehall and flinging them back out at gale-force speeds.

The funk Carioca spitfire regularly works and performs with cutting-edge DJs, rappers, and funk heavyweights on both sides of the equator. She recently did a guest turn on Iggy fave Sub Swara’s new album Triggers.

We predict that she is going to be very much in demand worldwide within the next twelve months.

The sultry vocalist is a must-hear for anyone who loves Maluca, feels the pain of Bonde do Rolé’s recent quiet, and who can’t wait for Marina Gasolina’s solo debut.

Zuzuka is currently working on her debut album and aims to make it an international affair with many producers in the mix. Maybe she’ll team up with Ms. Gasolina for a track or two! Dream collab!

Taste the funk in the video for her Eurythmics-sampling track “Ai Voce Gosta”:

I haven't posted a blog in a while due to an amazing amount of months of awesome events, ridiculous amounts of travel, and hard work that I needed to sleep off. BUT, I'm back baby and it feels good!

I was a weird kid...Obama you think you coulda helped the taunting?

I was bullied and made fun of for being different all through grade school. It was the worst feeling in the world and I definitely suffered from all the taunting and poking fun mentally and physically for many years. Since moving to NYC at 17 I have since realized how awesome it is to be unique. [Photo to the left is me at 15yrs dressed up a Drag Queen after wathcing the movie Priscilla Queen of the Desert] More fun pictures below...

If I could say one thing to the kids who harassed me almost everyday in school it would be "F*CK YOU, YOU F*CKNG FUCKS!! You didn't get the best of me!!!" Hopefully Obama's efforts w/ his "IT GETS BETTER" project will help some kids not have to go through the torture I did. Crossing fingers...

www.whitehouse.gov: Recently, several young people have taken their own lives after being bullied for being gay – or perceived as being gay – by their peers. Their deaths are shocking and heartbreaking tragedies. No one should have to endure relentless harassment or tormenting. No one should ever feel so alone or desperate that they feel they have nowhere to turn. We each share a responsibility to protect our young people. And we also have an obligation to set an example of respect and kindness, regardless of our differences.

This is personal to me. When I was a young adult, I faced the jokes and taunting that too many of our youth face today, and I considered suicide as a way out. But I was fortunate. One of my co-workers recognized that I was hurting, and I soon confided in her. She cared enough to push me to seek help. She saved my life. I will always be grateful for her compassion and support – the same compassion and support that so many kids need today.

In the wake of these terrible tragedies, thousands of Americans have come together to share their stories of hope and encouragement for LGBT youth who are struggling as part of the It Gets Better Project. Their messages are simple: no matter how difficult or hopeless life may seem when you’re a young person who’s been tormented by your peers or feels like you don’t fit in: life will get better.

President Obama is committed to ending bullying, harassment and discrimination in all its forms in our schools and communities. That’s why he recorded this message.

Last year, the Departments of Education and Health and Human Services joined forces with four other departments to create a federal task force on bullying. In August 2010, the task force staged the first-ever National Bullying Summit, bringing together 150 top state, local, civic, and corporate leaders to begin mapping out a national plan to end bullying. The task force also launched a new website, www.bullyinginfo.org, which brings all the federal resources on bullying together in one place for the first time ever.

My 2010 Halloween Mix is ready to make you spooky!!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I always love having an excuse to wear costumes...and glitter, eat candy, and listen to halloweeny songs!

Last year I created a Halloween mix w/ all music in Spanish just for fun and it was quite popular. I decided to make another one but I mixed it up w/ English and Spanish-sung music, some dance remixes of classics, and even a couple of horror movie sound clips:)

The mix is called "Amor y Sangre" and I think it's pretty entertaining. I hope you enjoy it and listen to it while you get all dolled up in your Halloween costume this year!

Thank you to Vogue Paris magazine for the promo image that inspired the name of this mix. I somehow find Love and Blood to go well together...like sex and chocolate?!? xoxo

Yea!!! Spanish Punk Legends SKA-P @ Irving Plaza

SKA-P, the iconic ska-punk rock outfit from Madrid, Spain, will be playing a rare, one-night-only concert at New York's Irving Plaza on Saturday, November 11th. Tickets are $34.50 and are available at LiveNation.com.

Ska-P's songs feature an infectious and energic vibe, with the rockers mostly singing about non-conformity and individuality, criticizing capitalism and racism, and defending equal justice for all people. Throughout their career, Ska-P has backed up their words with actions, taking part in various multicultural, alternative and anti-globalization festivals and protests. After wildly successful tours throughout Europe and South America in the 90's and early 00's, Ska-P took a hiatus, much to the chagrin of their fans, to pursue side projects, and personal endeavors. The band reformed in 2008 and toured South America and Europe, before releasing Lágrimas y Gozos. New York was not a stop on that tour however, but now for the first time in years, Ska-P will perform at the legendary home of rock & roll in New York City, Irving Plaza.

Historias Breves (VI) por mi amigo Gonzalo Navas Medina

Historias Breves (VI) por mi amigo Gonzalo Navas Medina

18-Finalmente, después de haber imaginado ese momento mil veces en los últimos meses, no se dijeron nada, estaban sentados frente a frente, con las piernas cruzadas y tomándose las manos, esperando a que la megafonía anunciara su vuelo. Pudo pasar una hora, pero se les hizo como tres segundos, tres segundos para recordar, tres segundos para decir adiós a demasiadas cosas que habrían dado para hablar una vida entera, pero que se pronunciaron en un silencio que sólo admitía una mirada, una mirada de despedida, de agradecimiento y de dolorosa felicidad. En la mente de ambos imágenes del futuro, de un futuro que la lógica y el sentido común gritaban que no sería tal, ¿qué le iban a hacer? eran demasiado jóvenes como para saber cómo son las cosas, pero demasiado jóvenes como para no permitirse soñar.

Aquello era un adiós a las personas que habían sido al conocerse y compartir sus vidas ese breve espacio de tiempo, probablemente lo recordarían siempre, esos momentos ya tenían sus propias canciones que lo habían grabado todo mejor que cualquier foto.

Luego abrazos, lágrimas y un tímido "adiós" a dúo. Pero nada de aquello fue la auténtica despedida. Vino después, después de separarse definitivamente. Ella pasó la línea de seguridad que separaba la zona de embarco, y justo antes de perderse por el pasillo se detuvo un momento, y como poseída por un pánico repentino echó una última mirada atrás, buscando entre la gente, y le encontró, sonriendole de vuelta una última vez.

Una Poema: The Broken Muñeca

The Broken Muñeca
1 year ago an unexpected surprise arrived
1 year ago she fell into a well
1 year ago she broke the bones in her body
1 year ago she almost died
1 year ago the world fell apart

1 year ago she collected her broken limbs and ran away to hide
1 year ago she sat on the floor day after day and glued herself back together

1 year ago today she stands in front of a mirror to see herself put back together again

One of my favorite types of music is PUNK and some of my favorite places punk comes from (besides UK and America) is Latin America, Spain, etc so I was very pleased to see my friend Robert Rose launched his new record label PUNK OUTLAW Records!!

The digital record label will initially focus on 360 degree partnerships importing music from emerging punk & independent artists. Now that's something I wanna dig my teeth into, yummy!!!


- Emerging Label Signs Two Latin American Punk Bands, “Rudos Wild” & “Los Suziox” -

The AIM Tell-A-Vision® Group (AIM TV) announced today the launch of “Punk Outlaw Records” as part of their “Punk Outlaw® Productions content banner. The digital record label will initially focus on 360 degree partnerships importing music from emerging punk & independent artists.

AIM TV Founder, Robert G. Rose, formed Punk Outlaw Records when traveling abroad gathering material for his documentary “Punktology…The Worldwide Influence of Punk”. Rose witnessed firsthand that the DIY (Do It Yourself) spirit of punk music was very much alive and thriving in places where artists sacrificed tremendously to make music in the face of incredibly challenging circumstances.

The new record label’s roster of recently signed artists include “Rudos Wild” (Rough and Wild), a raucous, in your face punk and punkabilly band from Montevideo, Uruguay that has been performing since 2003. Rudos Wild plays straight up classic punk rock heavily influenced by rockabilly, psychobilly and artists such as Social Distortion, The Misfits, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Stray Cats, The Clash, Tiger Army, The Living End and Reverend Horton Heat to name a few. Rudos Wild has independently recorded two full length CDs and toured extensively in Uruguay, Argentina and Chile.

Punk Outlaw Records also recently signed “Los Suziox” (The Dirty) a talented punk band hailing from the working class barrios of Medellin, Colombia. Los Suziox (LSZX) has independently recorded several tracks with a large repertoire of socially conscious songs that has garnered them legions of loyal fans in their native Colombia and throughout Latin America. LSZX’s musical influences are diverse and include bands like Stiff Little Fingers, Klamydia, The Addicts, The Clash, Konflikt, Ramones, Minor Threat, The Meteors & Stray Cats to name a few.

“Latin America is a hotbed of punk music and culture. Rudos Wild and Los Suziox represent the diversity and quality of the music being made there.” states Robert G. Rose, president of Punk Outlaw Records.

“American Latinos having a rich history of contributions and are a powerful force in the punk, psychobilly and rockabilly scenes in the U.S. today. With the changing nature of the music business and the declining influence of major labels, now is the perfect time to start an indie label that will help artists get their music to a wider audience. Our goal is to provide a platform to expose talented artists to a group of fans otherwise not able to experience important music that demands to be heard” Rose continues.

AIM TV Group and Punk Outlaw are wholly owned subsidiaries of Artist and Idea Management, Ltd, the pioneering creators of the long running, English language syndicated television series, American Latino TV and LatiNation which were sold to Los Angeles based LATV Networks in 2008 and are still airing in the U.S. via broadcast syndication and cable today.

VIVA MEXICO CABRONES!!! 2nite Nacotheque celebrates Mexican Independence!

It's days like this that remind me where my blood comes from and makes me proud. Even tho my skin is pale my veins carry spicy Mexican blood from my daddy; Guillermo Meneses (R.I.P.). The foto to the left is of my daddy (the handsome little boy in all white) celebrating his sisters bday in Mexico. The foto below that is of my daddy with his parents and his little sister who looks like a beautiful little Mexican doll!!

I remember sitting at my abuela's dinning room table in Mexico and contently eating sopa con sliced sausage. I was only 4yrs old but I can still remember walking through the market place and smelling freshly cooked street meat, roasted corn on the cob, and corn tortillas, MMMmmmm.

I used to dance in my parents living room to Mexican music and dancing in circles arm in arm with my baby brother (I really don't know what I was listening to, but I can guess it was mostly Nortenas). Hysterically laughing up a storm til my face turned red and my heart beat a million miles per hour.

Oh yes, Mexican runs through my veins and I'm proud of it! So tonight I'm happy to bring you the Nacotheque Mexican Independence party "Viva Mexico Cabrones"!!! I'm bringing spicy Mexican candies for everyone!!

Sick in bed listening to soothing sounds by ARDNAXELA

The month of September has been an incredible adventure of awesome event production by yours truely. I ran my body empty through countless hours of sleepless nights and early wakeup calls.

I'm NOT complaining, but my body finally gave out. After friday night @ the Remezcla Musica launch party I woke up w/ a fever, stuffy nose, and a strong cough. Yuck! I hate being sickies.

Oh well, I guess it's time for watching movies in bed, drinking lots of water, catching up on lots of sleeeeeep, and listening to relaxing music. With that said I open my gmail to find a track sent to me by an indie pop artist from Puerto Rico ARDNAXELA. The track is called "Pelicula" and it's quick lovely along with the rest of a bunch more songs you can preview on her msypace.

Alexandra Rosa, better known as her alter ego ARDNAXELA, is a Mexico City-based singer/songwriter hailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico. After singing in several Indie-Pop bands, she went solo in 2005 and released the album 'Telecine De La Tarde Con Ardnaxela'.

Her musical influences range from Rocio Durcal, Burt Bacharach, Les Rita Mitsouko, The Smiths, Siouxsie and the Banshees to The Pixies, exploring musical territories from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Argentina and Spain. Ardnaxela will release her new EP 'Fantastidate' late 2010.

NEW URSULA 1000 VIDEO for "Rocket"!!

NEW RELEASE ALERT! URSULA 1000 - Out now via i-Tunes and other digital outlets: the ROCKET single culled from the MYSTICS album. It features remixes by Telephunken, Smalltown Romeo and Mike Dextro and a killer animated video by Eric Kilkenny!

ESL Music’s URSULA 1000 is the alter ego of Brooklyn, New York based producer/DJ Alex Gimeno. His albums and mix sessions have taken on a broad scope of retro tinged spy grooves, bumping latin disco funk, hints of post punk electro go go, sleazy glam rock…And he never stops evolving.

You can hear it in his remixes for the likes of Quincy Jones, Felix Da Housecat, The Faint, Fort Knox Five to a slew of television remodels for themes to Seasme Street, The Powerpuff Girls, The Incredibles and Yo Gabba Gabba. Scenes for Sex And The City, Grey’s Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother popped even more with a helping of a little Ursula as have campaigns for Grand Marnier, AT&T, Samsung and Adidas.

Watch the brand new music video animated and directed by Eric Kilkenny from the latest single "Rocket" from album, Mystics. WATCH IT!

His collaborations with Dr.Luke, Shag, Cristina, Los Amigos Invisibles, Misty Roses, Federico Aubele to name a few brought forth sheer magic on the four albums, The Now Sound of Ursula 1000, Kinda’ Kinky, Here Comes Tomorrow and Mystics. All Systems Are Go Go and Ursadelica showed the world his dj skills and ear for the finest in hip shaking groovers. Undressed had it all re-imagined by electronic’s finest-Deekline, Ladytron, Product.01, Malente and more.

You can find him traveling the world dj-ing at places like Fabric, The Big Chill Festival, Shambhala or even at his home residencies at Trophy Bar and The Commodore. For a more obscure selection of songs that make him tick, check out his radio show, Guilty Pleasures on BrooklynRadio.com.

Ursula has just recently set his time machine controls towards primitive garage punk for his new E.P., FUZZ!

Drenched in snarling fuzz guitars, savage drums and spooky organs, this new collection of tracks unleashes his technicolor take on this sound. A pinch of the old and a drop of the new, creating a brand new monster!

Inspired by the classics like Count Five, The Sonics and the Nuggets and Back To The Grave collections to revivalists like The Gruesomes, Gravedigger V and The Dukes of Stratosphear, Ursula 1000 takes in this obsession and flips it for a new generation.

Features the inimitable Fred Schneider from The B-52s on the opening song, "Hey You!". Fred and his band paved the way of mixing b-movie retro trashiness and new wave as does Ursula with his blending vintage grooves with modern electronica, thus making the pairing a no- brainer. This is not pastiche but a re-invention!

Scenes From the 10th Annual Kustom Kills & Hot Rod Thrills Car Show Fotos by Alexander Thompson

I love all sorts of fashion, music, scenes, hair styles, and shoes, but there are a few styles/scenes that I have a sweet spot for in my heart. One of those includes pin-up girls in blood, red lipstick, Betty Page black hair/Lucille Ball red hair/Marilyn Monroe blonde bombshells, pencil thin skirts, boobies, greasers, slicked back pompadours, tight blue jeans w/ a cuff, and white t-shirts w/ cigarette packs rolled up in the sleeve....oOoooohhh so hawt! Grrrrrrrrr. Um, did it just get hot or was it just me?

Anyways, I just wanted to share w/ you some fun fotos by Alexander Thompson for PAPER magazine - Scenes From the 10th Annual Kustom Kills & Hot Rod Thrills Car Show!

This past weekend marked the 10th Annual "Kustom Kills & Hot Rod Thrills" car show for the Rumblers Car Club NYC. This greasy annual hot rod fest, held under the B.Q.E. in Williamsburg, featured a vast array of pre-1964 American hot rods and kustoms -- cars with vintage customizing. The car show has grown immensely popular throughout the years, as people travel from all over the east coast to not only exhibit and see the amazing hot rods on display, but to drink beer, eat burgers and see bands. This year's musical highlights included King Sickabilly, Toothless George & His One-Man Band, Al & The Black Cats, and Those Hated Hearts. The best of the day, however, included the procession of cars peeling out of the parking lot at the end of the day, revving up their engines and burning rubber down Metropolitan. Long live The Rumblers!

Un Poema: Wasting Her Time

Running around wasting her time...

Impatiently waiting to say what she is thinking
Eating poison tarts

Hidding her heart from cheshire cats
Kissing poison frogs

Falling down rabbit holes
Dancing with decks of cards

Running around wasting her time...

Something to make your feel goooood..."Good Morning Baby" mix!

Good morning mundo!! I went to sleep early in order to go to the beach today. I found myself waking up at 5am...too excited for fun in the sun? Sure:)

I woke up with a morning song in my head and remembered a Happy Morning mix I made back in December. The songs are guilty pleasures that make my heart feel warm and my mind at ease. It's kind of a toe tapper too, haha. (P.S. This mix is dedicated to my mommy; Karyn Louise Meneses. Te amo mamacita!)

I decided to make this mix downloadable so I could share it with the rest of the world. My mom loves listening to it in the car on her way to work. I love listening to it while getting ready to face the day...especially the very stressful ones.

Hope my "Good Morning Baby" mix brightens your day just a little bit more!

40% Yéyétronic, 20% R'n'R, 10% Punkrock, 3% electronic effects, 4% French 60ies beat, 7% genious dilettantism, 1,5% Cosmonaute, 10% really old synthesizers, 10% 8-bit Amiga-sampling, 10% transistor amplifier, 1% really expansive and advanced instruments, a minimalist production, meaning a home- made- trash- garage- sound crossed with underground, authentic as well as amateurish, ironic as well as effective, pop as well as political.

STEREO TOTAL released a vinyl 7" on Elefant Records in Spain called "Plástico" [features a spanish version of the song "Plastic" and three coverversions of Spanish songs] and a special Stereo Total- best-of: "Grandes Èxitos" will soon be out on Silicon Carne Records in Mexico.

LE ONE NIGHT STAND parties were an extraordinary experience in 2005 – 2007 where producers Amylu Meneses, Andy Shaw, Sheila B, and Melody Nelson introduced NYC to the best pop and rock n' roll sung in foreign languages ranging from europop, electropop, eighties, nu wave italo disco, yé-yé, bubblegum, sixties, jpop, and swedish pop. LONS had the privilege to work with; Saint Etiene, Puffy Amiyumi, Bob Stanley, Nouvelle Vague, Timo Ellis (Cibo Matto), Nous Non Plus, Les Handclaps, Josh Styles, Peppermintwist, Jaiko Suzuki, and many more.
