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, 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.
Excited by the House and Garage revival happening in the UK Bass scene, Nackt became very interested in dance music, and has been DJing funky Deep House, Techno, 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.
