DJ HURRICANE TRIBUTE
Legend DJ Hurricane who is considered by many as one of Tucson's Godfathers of DJ-ing passed away today. My prayers go out to his family and his closest friends. The man was a humble person and a DJ legend. Everywhere he went he was reppin' Tucson's & Arizona's DJ scene. We even went to the same College, ASU! Go SUN DEVILS!!
I always referred to him as "Legend DJ Hurricane" when I saw him. He will be missed. There is a void in the local DJ scene now. LDJ Hurricane has been on his grind since he first started and many other DJs (including myself) learned from watching him.
He would bring many DJs from different genres/generations/locations from mobile, digger, EDM, club, skratch, battle, hobbyist, (ect) together and we all had that one thing in commom beside being a dj was that we knew of him and shared that bond. (DJ Herm stated that with more detail).
It was a honor to do a BTC (Behind The Crossfadar Podcast) interview with Legend DJ Hurricane and DJ Phat Soul as the 2 hosts and I being the guest DJ. In an interview, He referred to me as a "Battle DJ" which in itself was a honor because I didn't know that he knew I was out there taking titles and entering DJ battles in other cities as opposed to some "kid" that just entered DJ competitions.
This man leaves behind a wife, children, family, close friends, DJ friends, Party/ Club Friends, Fans & a Tucson Culture that he help create. His love for vinyl and old school was his specialty and getting together people, including different styles of DJs was a gift that he had.
This was a human being that left our Earth way too early.
His cause of death has not yet been confirmed in public, nor do I want to ask nor do I care. He is already gone with the Gods. Although it was related to a medical condition and complication. His true friends and family know the details as do I.
The important thing is that he changed alot of people's/Artist/DJ's lives and brought positive vibes where ever he went. LDJH never spoke down on others and talked high of other DJs. LDJH along with other old school Tucson DJs paved the way in Tucson, AZ for others (DJs) to come into the local Club/Party scene. He was always willing to gave advice when asked. He bonded many people together that would not normally come together because he was that type of person.
REST IN PARADISE George aka LEGEND DJ Hurricane!
