Nackt is a DJ, Producer, Lover, and Gentleman. As a former resident DJ and founding member of the Deep East crew, and now part of Rare Form, Nackt is committed to bringing excellent DJ talent to Oakland! A native of the East Bay in California, Nackt grew up playing jazz saxophone and collecting Funk and Soul records. After becoming obsessed with Hip-Hop in the 90's, his extensive vinyl collection was put to good use as sample fuel in Downtempo and Hip-Hop production teams. Nackt worked the house party circuit and eventually earned a weekly residency at Oakland landmark, Ruby Room. He built on his experience there with Deep East, a House and Techno weekly at Lounge 3411, and continues to DJ and promote in Oakland with the new Rare Form party.

Excited by the Techno-influenced House and Garage revival happening in the UK Bass scene, Nackt plays Techno, funky Deep House, and Bass-heavy beats from across the globe. Depending on the time-slot, you'll hear anything from mellow, ethereal Jacques Greene productions, banging House tunes from Dusky, left-field bass music from the Hessle Audio label, to jacking Techno like Scuba or Boddika. Nackt's thorough musical knowledge makes for an eclectic set, sure to please the discerning listener with beats heavy enough to get a dance floor shaking.

Nackt has been booked for notable Bay Area parties like As You Like It, Friends and Family, Direct To Earth, and Bubble, sharing the bill with DJs like Maya Jane Coles, Thugfucker, Hunee, Cosmin TRG, 40 Thieves, Splatter, Rob Slac, Homero Espinosa, Ethan Miller, Tiari and many more.
