A SKRATCH CREW MADE UP OF 5 MEMBERS FROM THE BAY AREA TO HAWAII.
Mario Vela, better known as Kodac Visualz, is a cut connoisseur when it comes to scratching in a genre known as turntablism.
Kodac Visualz is not your average turntablist/scratch DJ. He is a performer, an artist, a choice cut connoisseur when it comes to selecting premium slabs of precision vinyl laceration. His style is full of charisma, very smooth yet aggressive, able to captivate audiences like a camera captures pictures.
Kodac Visualz approaches the crossfader with a style he has cra ed through years of turntable philosophy – a style he calls Asthmafunk.
This is known as letting the scratch breathe (pause, change in tempo), allowing himself and the listener a chance to take in and feel the natural scratch expression as if they were breathing through an inhaler.
Kodac has garnered much attention with the online release of Asthmafunk Scratch Sessions on his YouTube channel, influencing the next generation of DJ’s and turntablists. Kodac has shared the stage with many artists, locally and nationally, from E-40 to Talib Kweli
Hailing from the streets of central California Jose Orosco, stage name Bakon, was born the 6th of August back in 1984 to parents of Mexican and Native American descent. At an early age he was exposed to the hip hop community and other genera’s of music, like music by the Invisible Scratch Pickles, which have contributed to his unique style of music. He found himself in love with the art and music of the hip hop culture so he decided to not only admire it but contribute to it in any way he possibly could, he took up the turntables. Over the course of 13 years he honed his skills taking part in numerous scratch battles, mixing beats and even taking part of the Battle Ave: Triad Breaks record. His hard work caught the attention of the Asthmafunk Krew and in 2015 he was asked to join. When he is not in the studio or spending time with his family you can find Jose tattooing at the Restless Valley Ink tattoo shop where he specializes in lettering and realism with heavy west coast influence.
