Keeping Dr. Freecloudâs the store and the Vinyl alive is nothing short of dedication to the scene.
DJ Dement has been in and around the LA underground scene since 1993, DJâing since 1995. From 2000 to 2010 he took a break from the scene but found himself still searching for that underground sound. A trip into Dr. Freeclouds, to buy a CD, led to starting up a vinyl collection again with a new itch to get back out into the scene. Along with his ânewâ vinyl collection he found a new love, Industrial Hardcore. Itâs a generally slower, dark and often grungy style of Gabber. While formating sets, he tends to have an idea of where to go but not have set tracks to play, with a multi subgenre of Hardcore. Hardstyle, Gabber, Industrial and Core âN Bass (also know as crossbread) Recently he has been working with Dr. Freeclouds, Audio Science, Dirty Snare and CDP with hopes to work with many more of the LA area promoters in the near future.
