Christopher Robert Alker is a New York City based DJ, writer, and Registered Architect. Originally from Houston, TX he moved to New York City in 2004. With a passion for art, architecture, and music, he has tapped into the city's creative pulse in order to share his ideas, his writings, and his Damaged-Disco record collection. Unwilling to choose a single medium for his creative output, he operates in the space between architecture, music, & prose. Each informing and expanding the other, he is constantly writing about music and dancing about architecture.
He is responsible for raucous dance parties, countless building projects, is a contributing writer for multiple digital and print publications, has lectured at Yale's prestigious American Studies program, is a former label manager and ambassador of Subtrak Records, is one half of the DJ duo DELUXE, co-hosts an all-vinyl monthly video podcast at Halcyon Record Shop in Brooklyn called Function Factory, and is The Koople's regular event DJ.
