SouthSide Media was created by Carey C to open outlets for his performance talent, while providing production, promotion and visualizations for his associates: DJs, promoters, and nightclubs in the Las Vegas and So. California areas. As a classically trained percussionist, Carey C has had many years of diverse performance experiences. He started performing nightclub gigs way back in 1996, playing live drums with 'The Funkler' a.k.a. Mike Fuller and Robert Oleysyck at the legendary Club UTOPIA in Las Vegas.
Around that same time, Carey C developed his interest and talent for marketing and promotions, plying his trade for record labels like TVT/Wax Trax (NYC) and the dance culture sites Vegasafter10.com and Eventvibe.com.
Around the year 2001, while at a VegasAfter10.com party, Carey C caught the DJ bug. He began mixing mp3s, burning CDs and starting his wide-ranging DJ vinyl collection. And then there was practice, hours of practice learning the skills of a proper mix. Besides all that practicing, Carey C discovered some VJ software and instantly was hooked on mixing visuals and music. He quickly joined and studied the VJ artist community, and with some consultation with long-time friend and video wizard Doug Jablin, Carey C was off to the races creating custom visuals for his DJ/promoter friends.
Currently SouthSide Media is working on DVD projects, mobile media productions and nightclub media development. It's all for the love, the art, and the music.
