DJ Riddm (aka Gabriel Lautaro) is a veteran of the bay area music
scene. Since he first started buying records in 1990 until now he has
collected thousands of crucial cuts for the ears delight. He has
played in numerous venues around the bay and beyond since age 17. At
that time he was spinning mainly Hip-Hop and Dancehall but through
the years dug deeper into Roots Reggae, Funk, Jazz, Salsa & Afro Beat.
Crate diggers remember him for his shop Funky Riddms Records located
in Berkeley CA from 2000-2005. In 2003 he teamed up with Luv N'
Haight/Ubiquity and compiled the first album documenting early funk
45s from the bay area entitled Bay Area Funk which sold over 20,000
copies worldwide. In 2004 He selected riddims for veteran Dee
Jay/Toaster Ranking Joe at a show in Berkeley and it seemed as though
his love for Roots & Rub A Dub were a good fit with Joes' foundation
style. Since then Ranking Joe along side Riddm on selection have moved
and edutained crowds with their Original Style of Dancehall throughout
northern California including such venues as Club 6 (SF), Shattuck
Down Low (Berkeley) and Jaspers (Sebastopol) to name a few. In the summer
of 08 Riddm put out a mix hosted by Ranking Joe entitled Rub A Dub
(dat a weh we luv). You can hear DJ Riddm mixing up the latest boom
tunes along with some vintage sounds at nights like Skylarking (SF),
Rise Up (SF), King Of Kings (Berkeley) & the brand weekly Wednesdays @
Mercury Lounge (SF).
