Naka G has been a master and disaster at his craft since 1995. Always having love and interest for the art of the DJ, Naka picked up a set of used Technics 1200s and possibly the worst mixer ever and the rest, as they say, is history.
Never sticking to one type of music, Naka believes in working the crowd with an open format. “I don’t ever show up with a set…” Naka has said. “I just show up with an open mind, feel out the crowd and let the music do the rest.”
Naka is an accomplished resident DJ for the Summer and Winter X Games, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the Burton US Open Snowboard World Championships and the Burton Canadian Open, a resident of the former Jeep King of the Mountain/48STRAIGHT Tour and has also spun for many other action sport events including, The Ski Tour, Crankworx, The Aspen/Snowmass Open, Aspen/Snowmass Spring Jam and ThanksJibbing, KickAspen Big Air, FIS World Cup and The Red Bull SnoCross Big Air.
