Dispatches From Beyond the Stars
About This Show
Show Info: Star man from the Plaedian star system, I make Middle Eastern Bass music for all my star children. Born + bred in NYC. Narkatta, [Mal Label, Good Looks NY, Long Beach Light Tribe] raised by wolves, picked up the guitar after obsessing over a video of Jimi Hendrix lighting his guitar on fire at Monterey Pop Fest in '67. Idolizing Jimi, he began emulating him by experimenting with amplification and distortion of sounds with an array of guitar pedals. Combining that analog sound with the digital sounds created by his computer, he began to be known for spinning high energy sets that were not limited to any genre, combining Organic Bass Music/IDM, Glitchhop, Ghettofunk, Future Bass, Dub, Deep House, Future House, Swing & Electro House, Trap and Trip Hop. He started playing local NYC parties and has been known for spinning 6+ hour sets. Now performing on both east and west coasts, as well as spinning for Burning Man Decom parties thrown by Disorient, Hudson Project, Great North Music Festival, Camp Bisco, Farm Fest, Harvest Fest NY, and Alex Grey's COSM parties. Some venues he has performed at include Webster Hall, Pacha NYC, Public Assembly, The Delancey, The Electric Warehouse, and Highline Ballroom. Top 5 Nominee for BEST COLLEGE DJ for 2012's Global Spin Awards in NYC. Narkatta either whips the crowd into a rabid bass fueled frenzy, or takes them on a flowing psychedelic journey, spinning for the love of what he does. Modern influences include Chemical Brothers, Aphex Twin, Jay-Dilla, Tipper, Pretty Lights, Mr. Carmack, Thriftworks, and Justin Martin. Classic interest include Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson, Herbie Hancock, and Muddy Waters.
