It wasn’t until Richard Rodriguez turned 18 that his parents got him a pair of Technics 1200 turntables, but he has definitely made up for lost time since then. Transformed into DJ InDJnous, a homage to his indigenous Mexican and Guatemalan roots, he’s now OC’s foremost turntablist. Hip-hop-heads catch him spinning on the regular at the Observatory. The Anaheim resident is the official DJ for Cookbook, Concrete Saints and Ras Kass, all while still holding it down for local OC artists. And DJ InDJnous’ scratches on rapper Endz’s “714” opens up every episode of our OC Speakly podcast, making him a hometown hero for life.
