Gerald Casterlow was, and always will be, an inspirational person on and off the dance floor.

On the dance floor he inspired people on a global scale with his innovative moves and combinations which lead to winning countless crew and solo competitions across the planet. Gerald’s first competition with Rock Force Crew in San Francisco brought them to the final battle; Rock Force Crew vs Style Elements – a battle which echoed like a cannon blast heard around the world. People outside of California quickly caught wind of this battle and began to take interest. Gerald was one of the first b-boys in California to master the air-flare and quickly added it to his already vast arsenal of moves which aided in two of his most memorable accomplishments in the dance world: 1st place at Battle of the Year in Germany with Rock Force Crew, and 1st place in the 1 on 1 competition at Rock Steady anniversary in New York.

On December 23rd 1998, shortly after winning Rock Steady anniversary, Gerald was in a car waiting for a friend when he received a near fatal injury by a stray bullet to the head, a victim to being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The gunshot nearly took his life but wouldn’t hold this warrior down. He came back and regained majority of his moves and continued to tour and dance with Climax Soul Control while teaching classes at the SCMX Dance Academy in Fresno, Ca.

Outside of his personal career Gerald was a selfless and giving person who loved to share his craft with the community and was never selfish with his knowledge of the art form. A true gift of Gerald was how he could translate his grasp on the concepts behind movement in a manner others could easily comprehend. While teaching others new moves he could analyze them and easily pinpoint what was missing and what could compliment the movement. He would spend hours on end helping others learn new moves while always maintaining a patient and positive energy while teaching.

On December 23rd 2012, 14 years to the day after suffering from the gunshot to the head Gerald suffered a seizure and suffered brain trauma. After two hospitals confirmed the lack of brain activity and Gerald was removed from life support on the afternoon of December 30th and stopped breathing that evening.

Gerald we will miss you dearly and thank you for the Legacy you left the community.

DJ Neil Armstrong @ Mighty

Long before he was Jay Z’s tour DJ for all of 2008 and 2009, or a Global Brand Ambassador for Adidas for 2010, Neil Armstrong was a humble, fan of music. And he has never changed.

Acknowledged as the founding father of the DJ Collective the “5th Platoon”, Neil was born and breed in NYC, cutting his teeth in the early 90’s during the era of backpack Hip-Hop and the art of Turntablism. His time spent in the trenches battling and ma…stering the art of spinning allowed him to rock shows alongside artists across the Hip-Hop spectrum – from De La Soul, The Roots, Company Flow and Biz Markie, to Kanye West, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes and Wyclef Jean; he was also a member of the critically acclaimed 2 time Grammy -Nominated jazz band – Russell Gunn and Ethnomusicology, playing alongside iconic musicians Kenny Garrett (a member of Miles Davis’ band) and Brandford Marsalis.

Over the last 9 years, he has made an indelible mark in the sub-genre of Hip-Hop known as “Mixtape Culture.” Neil’s highly-regarded mixtapes represent his eclectic music taste and have generated considerable press, most-notably in Rolling Stone, Vibe, MTV.com, Theme, URB and Complex.

Neil has traveled the globe for an array of club appearances and events. He has been the NBA’s DJ of choice for their Rookie Shootout since 2006 and he has performed in Stockholm, Finland, Norway, Ireland, Holland, Poland, Belgium, Iceland, Nigeria, Germany, Vancouver, Toronto, the Phillipines, China, Singapore, Taiwan, and Tokyo, just to name a few spots.

From rocking in front of over 100,000 fans at the Glastonbury Festival, to anchoring a performance on the Letterman Show, to pumping with ice-cold veins at Madison Square Garden (three consecutive shows no less), DJ Neil Armstrong is now in the highest strata of DJ existence.

And even though he can now been seen in videos with Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige, has spun for adidas at the Olympic Games in Beijing, has shared the stage with Rihanna, Beyonce, Kanye West, Young Jeezy, Swiss Beats, Puff Daddy, Timbaland, Bun B, Memphis Bleek, EPMD, and Method Man, or performed alongside Slayer, Interpol, The Cool Kids, Common, Neil Young, Mark Ronson, Coldplay, NERD, and Linkin Park, Neil is as humble and focused as ever.
