Ricardo Cano, better known as DJ Flashback has a long history of music in his family! Hearing stories of his father DJing for neighborhood parties back in the motherland, Mexico, made Flashback become interested in the music scene. He had a great teacher from the very beginning, his dad. At a very early age, he learned to mix music with help from his dad. Since his dad and family were very much into music, he had a plethora of music and genres to develop his taste. Like many of us, he was able to scrounge up enough money to buy his equipment and start playing at local parties.
Flashback wasn’t even old enough to get into the clubs and bars by the time he was DJing in them. He was 17 when he started playing at the local bars around the area. This co-founder of This Bangs (the other being DJ Sol) has a superb drive to better himself and improve every chance he gets. Making sure that the night life in San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, and Orcutt, California is on point keeps him busy, but he still holds down the daily mixshow for WiLD 106.1.
Flashback is a force to be reckoned with, and he’s only 22! I think his power food is tacos de carnitas, which means I will add that to my diet starting today! When he’s not busy taking over the scene in San Luis Obispo, or meeting celebrities like A-Trak, or jamming out to Taylor Swift (his favorite artist right now – he said so himself). He’s running things behinds the scenes at This Bangs and fine-tuning his craft.
Flashback is definitely making moves and doing big things! Make sure to keep up with him on his sites below. Also, be sure to check out his featured mix!
