A DJ like Justin Miller really encompasses all the New York house and disco scene has to offer. As the assistant label manager to DFA Records during their biggest years (LCD Soundsystem, The Juan Maclean, Hercules & Love Affair, Still Going, Benoit & Sergio) Justin has made many friends along the way. He now gigs regularly around town, co-headlining nights with the likes of Jacques Renault (Let’s Play House) and Justin Strauss (Whatever/Whatever). He’s now started his own label, Have A Killer Time which will soon see pressings including a debut from himself.
Nooka Jones has quickly become one of NYC’s new guard of DJs. With an extensive knowledge of dance music history and skills honed since the young age of 13, each genre spanning set Nooka throws down is a lesson in soulful, body moving electronic beats. This introspection and dedication towards movement has lead him to play alongside a wide array of sounds: Scuba, SBTRKT, Pearson Sound, Mister Saturday Night, Anthony Naples and two years at Boston’s Together Festival.
