Brooklyn Bass Residents
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.
From the funky abstract bubblings of Falty DL, Seafloor and Soul Clap, to the pure house stylings of Oliver $ and Catz n Dogs, to producers of the moment like Addison Groove, Boddika, and Sepalcure, Nooka touches on all of the various genres and sounds that make up the wide open world club music is enjoying in a post-dubstep moment.
