Here's a classic straight from the archives of Unique Technique with some sounds that you may have never heard before. Back in the day before there were any mp3 formats DeeJays would record the music onto cassette tapes, the original mixtapes. The Mixwell name was a spoof off the Maxell brand cassette tape as well. Since the millennia of the 2000 era record formats has come a long way from cassette tapes and vinyl records so who knows what the future holds for music because its always in constant revolution. As the record spins I hope you enjoy this gem being brought to you by the late Great DJ Mooski himself. UT83 forever!!!!!
The Unique Technique picnic was held at Cerritos Park East this past summer of 2016. We had great stories to share and fun games for the kids to play. The food was delicious and Bom Bom came through with the shave ice speciality. Extra special thanks to everyone who contributed to the affair and a special shout out to Juvy and Joann for organizing the event!!!
Heres a picture of a trip to San Francisco from back in the day where excursions were made to Northern California on a frequent basis just to visit our Bay Area fam. Parties were always on the itinerary while being up North and the atmosphere always gave the warm welcoming vibe. The Hip-Hop experience was extraordinaire and different from the LA scene which gave us a whole new experience to their lifestyle. Much Luv to our Bay Area fam for the Northern Hospitality and all the fond memories they gave Unique Technique!
I would like to give an acknowledgement to the East23rd Family for their love, dedication, hard work, support and perseverance in Hip Hop as a artists, crew and family. To make a long story short East23rd has come a long way from making demos on a 4 track cassette recorder, establishing a Hip Hop shop on 7th street in the East Side Of Long Beach, Ca. called Surah: 19 and slanging furniture out of an apartment to the creation of East23rd Builders, a professional general contracting company. Despite the trials and tribulations East23rd has had to overcome they remained for over 20 years by continuing to struggle for a better way of life. Much Props!!!
Moo, Vince, AL, Ross and Big Tone are a few names to mention when were talking about some of the people who were always on the block. The Block is a place in Carson, Calif. where some of the UT family members resided. There was always camaraderie on the block which gave it a sense of home for every loved one who came through to kick it back in the days. That was a long time ago and times have changed since then so plenty of us have moved on because we all relocated elsewhere to live our own lives and to dwell upon the different things we do now. This is a commemorative blog to those times when we used to kick it on the block with the "Homeboys and Homegirls!"
Heres a blast from the past. I remember the day this showed on television. It was during a time when everything was still in analog and some television sets were made of big wooden boxes with a television tube inside of them. This day was such an awe inspiring moment in Hip Hop for us because we were so hungry to catch any type of media about Hip Hop. I was at the Nuezca residence in Carson, California when this happened. DJ Moo immediately put a blank vhs tape in the recorder to capture the moment. The buzz from this show left us inspired. This was a one of kind experience for those who witnessed the moment and a classic time piece for the ages of Hip Hop.
Eli'gere is an affiliated crew of Unique Technique Productions. The name of the group derives from a latin word that stands for the Elite Three. Joe Nguyen, Joann Nguyen and Anabelle Abayon originated Eli'gere in 2008 as a party promotion crew coming out of Cerritos, California. They have promoted functions at The Reef in Long Beach and other various locations in Cerritos. With the help from a repertoire of local DeeJays and Island/Reggae bands to provide the good vibe music for all the party goers at the Eli'gere events. Be on the look out for anymore events that Eli'gere will be hosting in the near future!
The UT crew entourage has been of utter importance to the history of parties that has ever been done in the past whether it be at a house party, bar or hall etc., The entourage was the main component of helping hands with the crate of records and equipment during the set up of any gig. They also provided security, fun and laughter all the time. Many of the memories in UT's history could not be accomplished without these people we call family. This is an acknowledgement to all who has been there for UT!
