Thud Rumble

Wednesday, May 13, 5:30 pm to 6:00 pm in Launch Pad Stage

A company literally built from skratch, Thud Rumble re-imagined what a turntable and a mixer can do and started an entire cultural revolution. In the true essence of the DIY/maker spirit, Richard “DJ QBert” Quitevisand Ritche “Yogafrog” Desuasido helped launch the birth of break records with Dirtstyle Records; designed the modern DJ mixer that eventually became the industry standard; and founded Thud Rumble as an independent innovation hub/distribution network that would serve as a blueprint for many DJ companies to follow. Thru the years, they have worked and consulted with every DJ company in shaping the billion-dollar DJ industry; from Pioneer DJ, Vestax, Monster DJ, Ortofon, Sennheiser to name a few; as well as the most established tech companies of Silicon Valley. Thud Rumble’s Ritche “Yogafrog” Desuasido will close MakerCon Bay Area 2015 with a splash — and a skratch — as they share their art and their wisdom in a special closing keynote presentation.
