5.6.21 | cleaned up my setup and wiring, my HD on my 2012 Mac Mini was on its way out so it had to be replaced (Solid State), no throw away computers here. The space in the middle is for the MacBook Pro. Got OBS Studio, audio capture software, and iOS Camera plugin all sorted. Next step is organizing music, and figuring out where the best place to set my iPhone (acting as webcam) will be, then it’s Livestream time...Week or Two tops.

Since I’m asked this sometimes, my event series name does not come from a Daft Punk song...I created this series in 2003...

The Beginnings of Substructure

In and around 1995 or so, two friends of mine in Richmond, VA, while we were attending VCU, came up with the name FUNKREW. Things were already brewing with us, immersed in the underground electronic music culture, always creating, whether music, art, or memorable times through togetherness and excuses to experience the music we loved so much. Under the name Funkrew we put on quite a few house parties and then I did many events under that name for many years into the future.

Fast forward to 2002 when I started my ROBOT ROK event series and was asked to play the legendary BUZZ in DC, I was asked if I had a crew, so as to host the back patio. Rather than use the name Funkrew, I came up with SUBSTRUCTURE, then I gathered a few talented DC dj’s to be with me under Substructure for the night. They accepted, the night happened, and it was amazing (Thankful for that and the opportunity). Since then, I have used Substructure to represent me as a Dj, my ROBOT ROK event series, and other Dj’s, and hope to continue that into the future in any way I can through our beloved underground music.

For me, it has aways been about the music, and the feeling of family we once had, sharing great, memorable times through art and music, as well as the atmosphere...

Peace and stay tuned....
