HIPSTEPPIN INTO THE FUTURE

hipstepp2

Ignacio Soltero is a Brooklyn based, born and raised, photographer. He always had an interest in photography since learning of the process at eleven years old at day camp. Two years later, he learned how to operate a manual film camera and develop B&W film in a dark room in Junior HS. At that time, he mostly photographed school events, skateboarding & his bmx biking friends on the weekends. The passion for photography was short lived due to the lack of funds to buy a camera. A few years later, his interest in photography got sparked again while studying Advertising Design in college. He then began to document his mountain bike adventures throughout Brooklyn. With those photos, he then formed a website with friends documenting other mountain bikers in NYC. Since then, he has used his skills from shooting action sports photography and applied them to shooting DJs, dancers and other events. hipstepp3 hipstepp4 hipstepp5 hipstepp6 hipstepp7 hipstepp8 hipstepp9

 

BLAST OFF from PLANET DEFJAM

defjam missy
or should I say the new DEFJAM?
Last night I stopped by the launch party of the new site of one of hip hop’s favorite labels.
From QuestLove to Clinton Sparks the tables stayed lit all night..
SALUTE THE DJS
and the vibe was chill even though it was over 100 degrees outside.
Sponsored by REMY which I saw most drinking out of branded foam cups brought to you by Hiphop Friends and there were some wooden Def Jam iphone cases floating around. I guess nothing for the Galaxy users.. lol
Needless to say….it was great to see old faces, meet some new faces and make new business connects. Even though most I met thought I worked for DefJam I let em know it was all about FemaleFlow! I always find the “vibe” of an event interesting and what makes an event work or not work. Most have no idea what it takes to make an event successful and that goes beyond just a “party”. There is number behind everything. But no matter how good or bad, I always choose to have fun and introduce myself to at least 3 people before I leave.

I had a great night seeing some of my family, friends, aliens & favorite
hiphop acts like the Cold Crush Brothers who did not miss a beat, lyric or dance move
They talked about catching the Cold Crush Ghost… I believed em after that performance.
Melle Mel gave them a spectular show as Hiphops General in his sharp attire…

Night was hosted by the legendary and strong Queen Ms. Roxanne Shante
and giving prizes to the winners of random challenges like
WINDING A CASSETTE TAPE WITH A PENCIL
and see who finishes first
