DJ Slippe Drunk Dial member/Resident DJ for Twist Thurdays at Axis-Radius

Wild Times: I definitely remember my birthday party there two years ago with my boy Hot Rod and the Wig Mafia guys. We filmed it and they actually put it up on 50 Cent's website. It was a pretty crazy deal. We had the club packed out, we had an ice luge in there with my logo on it, and I had it set up so two girls could shots at the same time. Drunk Dial opened for Manufactured Superstars there. We filmed our "Fall in Love" video there. So there's a lot of cool memories. Glad we got 'em all on video.

I love Axis-Radius. It's been a legendary club. There's nothing like being on those turntables and [seeing] that cryo coming out of the ceiling, people screaming with their hands in the air, and just looking up along the rails and seeing everybody raging. There's definitely been a highlight of my DJ career in Arizona.

Meeting His Future Wife at Axis-Radius: I was still living in Salt Lake City and DJing full time and I flew in and had a gig at Radius in like 2007 or 2008. I was friends with DJ Circle and so was she. So I met up with him before my gig and she was over at Suede doing Napkin Nights photography. And she met me by taking my picture. I wanted her to take one with me and couple of fat chicks, which she still teases me about. She hung out with me for a minute, took some photos, gave me her business card which had the link to her MySpace. I actually have that business card taped inside my record needle case to this day.
