Hollywood Debut as Celebrity Podcaster at #BloodRansom Red Carpet 10.28.14

Season 2 |September 2014| Hollywood experienced were memorable with Janet Nepales (Hollywood Journalist) last August 2014 during Season 1 Finale. |Season 2 Premiere| Where Film maker meets The Bookman: amazing interviews with Philip Anthony of Alba Productions (Produced Dr. Tess Show & On Your Marc w/Marc Anthony Nicholas: 3rd Time Emmy Nominated Producer of The Talk). He was pleasant and answered all the questions with inspiring advice to youth. In addition, The Bookman of UCLA was indeed an inspiration interview because Michael Comaduran helped lower income family to invest in education, which is a set of book to educate young individuals from Math to Science courses.Unexpectedly, booking interviews was kinda challenging sometimes. Have to be consistent and persistent in contacting publicists and managers until they will agree on schedule. Luckily, was able to booked in advance for two months ahead of schedule. Imagine just to get a yes for one guest was already a challenge, all the more for the entire season especially prepping for pre and post productions; the questions, topics, and promos indeed. That’s why having correspondents can make a show easier indeed. Thanks to Pearl & Mariebeth for being persistent and hardworking individual. The most memorable interview for the month of September was Jim Paredes, kinda stars struck in a way because love listening to his music growing up as a teen in the Philippines. Can’t tell though over audio recordings. Anyhow, he was gracious enough to answer all questions. A very down-to-earth indeed. Lastly, he even tweeted his interviews over his 700K friends, wow! was in cloud 9. |Historical MIFAA (75 Most Influential Filipino Americans of 2014)| presented by MGR Records & #BlogtalkwithMJRacadio Since October is Fil-Am History Month so it’s appropriate to recognized and honor fellow Fil-Ams. Created this lists of people and did researched for almost two weeks. Originally released 50 but in a later time changed to 75 MIFA. The sole purpose of the lists was to unify Fil-Ams, recognized their contributions to society and community. Empower others. Surprisingly, the response were overwhelming after releasing the 75 MIFA of 2014, inbox from social network were buzzing in from New York to Hollywood. I said “is this really happening, wow! I did something cool to the community and bring them together. |Before making it to Hollywood| was able to interviewed most notable Fil-Ams such as Fritz Friedman (Veteran publicists of Sony Pictures)very down to earth person, inspiring, and really care about the community he said ” If I don’t believe or have confident in any of it, I don’t participate”; Dr. Tess was so humble and refreshing, cannot imagine she is America’s Favorite Dermatologist according to her “When home, I’m just Tess, a mother” Wow! She definitely an awesome good role model to young generation. Lastly, Ted Benito (Executive Director of Apl De Ap Foundation) was very gracious and fellow Manongs, private conversations were amazing and catch up with being Ilocanos, and his favorite food was Pinakbet. Definitely have something in common with Ted not only for the love of fellowmen rather inspire and empower them. Thanking him for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime to launch as celebrity Podcaster in Hollywood during Blood Ransom premiere. October 2014 |Hollywood Debut| One day, contacted a Hollywood MUA Maxitone, the Artist obliged to do an interview and thought its kinda cool to do it. Little did I know this MUA is very popular in Hollywood, credentials included BET, Golden Globes, Grammys and so on. Offered PR services so the MUA agreed and got invited in Hollywood to cover the event at The RedBurry Hotel in the heart of Hollywood. Witnessed the glitz and glamour but behind the scenes was a lot of work. Interviewing influential people in the red carpet was fun and nerve-wracking at the same time. Guess what? was able to re-connect with long time friend Esmeralda now she’s Mrs. Asian Las Vegas. 2014. Imagine never seen her since 2002 back in Vegas, as they say everything happened in Vegas Stays in Vegas definitely  not our friendship though. She was still stunning despite having a kid, wow! So proud of her accomplishments. Another surprise! Janet & Ruben Nepales was at the event, the power couple of Hollywood Foreign Press Association, such a thrill to see them. Also met Hollywood Designer Alan Del Rosario and took selfie with him. Really had a blast mingled with VIP in the heart of Hollywood never in my wildest dream. Two women approached if I’m one of the Basco Brothers I said “no I’m covering the event.” MUA said you look like Hollywood Celebrity, “I said thank you” replied you should try acting, I replied “Really?” . Before The Hollywood Debut as Celebrity Podcaster Got invited by Andy Edralin of Filipino Press Club, a Press Conference of Blood Ransom in Glendale. The place was jam-packed with journalist and celebrities and awesome food. Finally met Ted Benito and offered something to drink so ordered mango juice. What a night of press and good company including Peter Gonzaga (Pacific Rim Video), Sthanlee Mirador (Hollywood Celebrity Photographer) and so on . By the way, was able to asked Anne Curtis (Filipino Super Star) a very cool questions. What can we expect from you in this movie? Anne Curtis “Something that you never seen before because never portrayed a vampire”. |Oh boy! Disaster| Before the Hollywood Premiere of Blood Ransom a lot of things happened. First, booking a hotel before the event was not a good idea. Second, the hotel it’s away from Hollywood. Third, arriving in the hotel was a disaster because the front desk refuse a service so completely canceled the reservation without valid reason. Fourth, dealing with the LA traffic was worst, at same time assistant calling hotel close to sunset blvd. Finally, the hotel was booked but I have only 30 minutes to get ready before checking in to the Hollywood Premiere. Wow! Thought wouldn’t able to make it. Oh boy! Never ever book a hotel again before any event in Los Angeles. What a surprised? to see my name next to Hollywood Red Carpet where all the Celebrity Walks & Interviews.

an insider view as to how the radio industry works. Although, Dan had
the love for radio, his heart belonged behind the scenes. Dan
Mathews realized the music industry was in need of top quality dance
music producers and decided to team up with none other than his brother,
Sam Michaels. KlubJumpers was then formed as a remixing/production team.

Can you please tell us how you and
your brother Sam got into doing
remixes and original productions?
It was back in 1993 when a friend of mine had took us to a recording studio and we were blown away in how they were making music. You know back then they were using analog mixing boards & keyboards Adats machine’s it was so fascinating that it was something we needed to be
doing. From there on we both team up to start KLUBJUMPERS and begin our original productions.

105.9 Rhythm FM Top 40 Hits
105.9 Rhythm FM Top 40 Hits

Heard that you manages several radio stations & also part of DJ
Yes I recently Got hired as Program director for Rhythm 105.9 FM Top 40 mainstream BDS station located in Yuba,Sacramento CA, I am also A DJ Times reporter for the top 25 charts on the magazine.

What is the process like to work in the studio with superstars. Recently, you did work for Fat Joe & Ricky Martin?
Well the process is pretty much simple we get a call from the A&R and usually ask if we would be interested in doing a remix for the artist ,Yes we recently did a remix for Breanna Rubio “Fly Alone” Ft. Fat Joe its already on the billboard top 15 charts, Ricky Martin was a collaboration with our partner DJ CUBANITO known as Alex Carmenates.

What advice can you give to a up & coming DJ?
I would say to just keep true to your sound and don’t try to be like every DJ or remixer out there try to be different come up with new ideas I think that’s what sets KlubJumpers apart from most of the DJ’s and Remixers out there is that we stick to what works for us and not try to copy anyone being original that’s the advice I would give to a new DJ/Producer.

Does technology, particularly the Internet has impact in the music
It really does have a great impact,with the Internet any one can
log on to any radio station from anywhere in the world,So it really plays a major part in the Music industry.

Any upcoming projects, what can we expect from you in 2015?
