Nackt is a DJ, Producer, Lover, and Gentleman. As a co-founder of the Rare Form and Outpost parties, as well as a former resident DJ and founding member of the Deep East crew, he is committed to bringing excellent talent to Oakland and San Francisco! Nackt grew up in the East Bay Area 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 with Deep East, a deep house and techno weekly party. He 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 forward-thinking bass music 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, Grime City, Bubble, Direct To Earth, HGMNY, Friends and Family (FNF), Black Magic Disko, Stamina, 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 Maya Jane Coles, Hunee, Thugfucker, Dirt Crew, DJ Hatcha, Cosmin TRG, Martyn, Kit Clayton, 40 Thieves, Jason Kendig, Tiari, Odd Nosdam, Starkey, Jonah Sharp, Brian Bejarano and more.
