Naked Music Recordings was founded in 1998 with a clear mission: Release forward-thinking, urban soul music from a diverse roster of up-and-coming artists. Multiple 12" releases and many albums later, they’ve set a new standard in the electronic music world for captivating song-writing and top-notch production, steadily refining a sophisticated, sexy sound that's distinctly Naked.
Along the way, Naked Music has showcased the Petalpusher (AKA Miguel 'Migs'), Blue 6, the vocal talents of Lisa Shaw and Gaelle as well as introducing Aquanote, Central Living, Speakeasy and many others. Now the Naked sound is coming to Family at Seven on Saturday 2 October with exclusive Naked DeeJay Mauricio Aviles.
Born in El Salvador, Mauricio Aviles immigrated with his parents to San Francisco in 1973. There he was constantly surrounded by the Latin rhythms of the barrio. Acknowledging the urban, afro origins of dance music, with a personal blend of his own Latino roots, and a constant endeavour to break new ground, Mauricio's sound is hauntingly personal, emotional and consistently fresh. Creating a niche within the deep house sound, his style, though ethereal, is undeniably funky and always elicits a great response on the dance floor.
