– The Beautician –
“the hairdresser that makes beats”.
The Beautician aka Jon Paul Bribiesca is a producer from San Diego CA. He also is a hairdresser, makeup artist, fashion designer and photographer, a modern renaissance man. He is very passionate about the music he makes and chooses to play during his performance, you can clearly see this by the expressions on his face and the energy that his body language creates as each track is played. He is also accompanied by his chihuahua and best friend Scrappy Doo, who loves house music so much that he sits on his masters shoulder during the set. Then there are The Beauties, one or two models that get styled, hair and make up done by The Beautician before every show to add a production quality to his show that has long been missing in the club scene. This charismatic and exciting man brings a unique and fresh west coast style to house music. His sound is Bass heavy and dirty (or as he likes to spell it DRRRTY) and heavily influenced by hip hop. He loves to add vocals in his set along with long builds followed by a filthy drop. This a one of a kind act and a definite must see live.
The Beautician is with out a doubt all about beaut…, in the music he makes, the hair and makeup and fashion he creates for his Beauties, what influences he uses, the life style he lives, and the people that he chooses to surround him.
