Brooklyn-based, Hoosier-bred Nooka Jones is a DJ rooted in emotion and dancing. No regard for stereotypes or trends, he glides between house, disco, techno and beyond with ease. His parties range in venues, but his vibe never does-- always soulful and introspective, with a heavy lean on the groove. Nooka holds down the residency at Brookyln's eclectic Percussion Lab as well as a newly developed Thursday weekly at Cameo Lounge. While playing with Pearson Sound, Scuba and Francois K are some of Nooka's more notable moments, his late afternoon jaunts in SF's Mission Dolores Park and yearly stints at Boston's Together Festival rank among his favorite gigs.
During a nomadic childhood, Evan Michael experienced an array of music scenes across the nation that inspired his earliest music efforts. A summer abroad in Madrid, however, served as a catalyst for Evan's foray into club culture and electronic music.
After joining Boston's DJ circuit, Evan went on to settle in Brooklyn, where a rich and diverse underground community helped fuel his passion for creating original productions. As a promoter, nightlife curator of Cameo (one of the borough's beloved nightclubs) and editor of Brooklyn Bass, Evan is adept not only at understanding the music industry but also at constructing a proper dance floor gathering, as evidenced in his own sets and original productions.
Inspired by the sounds of retro disco, classic house and funk labels like Tabu, Dance Mania and Prelude, Evan is continuously driven to incorporate small elements of the past and molding them into new and interesting ways in his own work.
