Pump Up The Jam

Latino USA sits down with Guadalupe Rosales of Veteranas and Rucas and Map Pointz, two archival projects focused on the backyard party scene of 80's and 90's Los Angeles, that celebrate big hair, house music and endless nights. Rosales is joined by Eddie Ruvalcaba who photographed the scene with Streetbeat Magazine and attended parties as a teenager. The two speak about the power of documenting youth culture and why those parties still mean so much to them— and everyone else.
