Austin, Texas is known all over the world for its live music. With new production companies popping up every day, I sat down with one of the founders of Sequence Process to learn more about what his plans are for events in Central Texas.
Hi Daniel, thank you for taking the time to speak with me today. Tell me a little more about Sequence Process.
Sequence Process is a collective started in Dallas, Texas by me, Andrew Gleboff and Aleah Axiom. Since I’ve moved to Austin, we have branched out and I wanted to start something here. We’ve currently formed the Austin Chapter of Sequence Process with Randy Medina and CJ Woods. We are throwing our first event, a pop-up show featuring Dustin Holtsberry at The Venue on August 23rd. This show is to let everyone know we are here. We wanted our start-up party to have a big impact and being on 6th street at the Venue, we feel will be a perfect fit.
You are originally from El Paso and were deeply affected by the senseless violence that took place there a few weeks ago. Your event is free, but you are accepting donations for the El Paso Community Foundation. How will that be set up?
We will have a booth that will be set up for cash donations and we have also posted a link on the event page where you can directly go to the foundation and make your donations.
I’m super excited to check out Dustin Holtsberry, he’s been making a name for himself in the Southwest. Have you worked with him before? What can we expect from his set?
I’ve played with him a couple of times in El Paso. His sets are really energetic, and his tracks have been played by DJs all over the world even by legendary Richie Hawtin. His sets are driving, pounding, bouncy techno. Pretty much all the fun stuff you want out of a Techno set.
Your event on August 23rd runs from 7pm to 2am and is black and white themed, what can we anticipate from your party?
We are hoping people will embrace the idea of minimalism that we are trying to achieve when it comes to the event. We are not about the gimmicks or hype or anything like that. We are bare bones and let the music speak for itself. So, when it comes to the black and white party, it’s just the symbolism of the minimalism of what we want. Everyone is there for the same reason, for the music. As far as the attire, it’s a nice little aesthetic to go along with the event. Of course, we have some ideas planned as far as projections and stage designs but when it comes to our vision its bare bones, underground warehouse feel.
Do you have anything else you would like to add about the future of Sequence Process in Austin?
We are very excited to start this new project. Sequence Process is its own collective starting brand new in Austin, but we have 3 years of experience throwing events in Dallas. Anyone that is into underground music is more than welcome to add Sequence Process on Facebook and my DJ page Prototype, to stay current with our events. More surprises are coming soon!
If you are in the Austin Area, make sure to check out Sequence Process’ first event at The Venue on August 23rd featuring Dustin Holtsberry, Deuce Parks, Prototype, Suspekt In Black, and Sinecure. It’s a free event and they are accepting donations for the victims of the El Paso shooting. Sequence Process has big plans for Austin’s Techno scene so be on the lookout for future events.
