About a year ago, narc found himself at 8am rounding off a 24 hour dancing marathon on a dusty campground at the Lightning in a Bottle festival in South Orange County. At that moment, hypnotized by back to back sets of tech house and minimal from Do Lab and Burning Man veterans, he decided that it was time to grow up (musically, that is).
Four years prior, he had stumbled upon the burgeoning electro house scene in Los Angeles and had begun his DJing and production career. Over the next few years, he moved from dirty frat houseparties to Westwood’s now infamous BrewCo, playing 2 hour sets of UK bass and dubstep alongside the Uh Oh Disco crew, and then to Hollywood’s sexy Controversy! party at the Standard hotel.
His production track record has spanned everything from hip-hop to UK garage to future bass, but it all comes full circle at that moment at Lightning in a Bottle. After years of bombarding parties with wobbles, buzzsaws and lazer drops, he’s decided to dissolve it down to the bare essentials — interesting sounds, clean production and body moving grooves. This is all apparent in his newly released “Vacation/Lounge Raving” EP which is featured in this mix, alongside styles that range from deep house to big room techno to the strangest and most exciting new iterations of the UK bass sound. The EP was just signed to Buena Onda Records in Paris. Relax and let narc slow things down for Episode 009 of Raw Goodage Radio. Share and subscribe!
