Machete

Saturday August 13th

Rob Machete began his musical career back in 1991 as DJ Rob G, spinning Hip-Hop at Hollywood afterhours events such as No-Doz, What?, and Caffiend. The Los Angeles underground rave culture was in it’s infancy and Rob was inspired by the techno-breakbeat music emerging out of England via vinyl records played by DJs Raw, Curious, and Oscar da Grouch.
These frantic bass-heavy beats that evolved from old-school breaks layered with HipHop and Reggae samples were intriguing and propelled him in a new direction. Rob, encouraged by his peers, changed his professional name to Machete in 1994 – a title meant to evoke the nature of his mixing and cutting skills in relation to this new Jungle music. As DJ Machete, Rob helped put his crew, Junglist Platoon, on the map with gigs at nearly every Jungle party in the Greater Los Angeles area. A brief residency with Los Angeles mega-promoter Insomniac, plus a noted mention in URB Magazine’s NEXT 100 Issue (1998) garnered much attention. Machete was then featured on various dates of the infamous KungFu-Knowledge Tour of 1999, placing him alongside many of the world’s best talents including DJ Craze, Mampi Swift, and Rob Playford.
