Oakland, CA, USA Techno Deep House Tech House Electronica

Nackt is a DJ, Producer, Lover, and Gentleman. As a former resident DJ and founding member of the Deep East crew, and co-founder of the Rare Form and Outpost parties, he is committed to bringing excellent talent to Oakland and San Francisco! Nackt grew up in the East Bay in California, 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 productions. Nackt worked the house party circuit and eventually earned a weekly residency at Oakland landmark, Ruby Room. After holding down a Soul and Hip-Hop residency there for many years, he built on his experience helping throw Deep East, a deep house and techno weekly, and continues to DJ and promote in Oakland with the eclectic Rare Form parties, and in San Francisco with the bass-heavy monthly, Outpost.

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, Werd, Bubble, Direct To Earth, the long-running Friends and Family campout, and the legendary ambient party, Chillits. Nackt's original productions and remixes have appeared on Popgang Records, Chillin, and 3AM Devices, and he has shared the bill with artists like Hunee, Thugfucker, Cosmin TRG, 40 Thieves, Splatter, Ethan Miller, Tiari, Mozaic and more.
