DJ Naka G – Music – Aspen, X-Games, Gatsby, and Grimey


Naka G has been a master and disaster at his craft since 1995. 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.

I imagine that his fingers get sore just typing out a resume like that. On top of all of this he is in Aspen spinning the weekends till the morning. I met Naka when I moved to Aspen years ago. I was working at spots he would play, would attend the events in town, and also hear about his lavish adventures to places to move crowds and crush beats for the mainstream. If you have watched any of the above things on TV or in person, you have heard Naka. He’s the man behind the sound. He’s the beat monster digging in the stacks to make sure you feel the right emotion while Travis Pastrano throws a flip, Shaun White wins the Gold, or the best night out in Aspen. He is genuine and warm hearted. He is steeped in music knowledge and history. But most of all, He is “in-tune” and current with the social scene. Always adapting and never satisfied Naka is making new sounds daily. 

Could you DJ for this crowd at X-games?

He has also started the night of for these memorable artist:
“DJ Z-Trip, Mixmaster Mike, Junkie XL, Swollen Members, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Steel Pulse, Method Man, The Roots, The Pharcyde, Ozomatli, Ice Cube, Blackalicious, The 2Live Crew, The Wailers, Stephen and Damian Marley, Naughty By Nature, Slightly Stoopid, The Hood Internet, Thievery Corporation, DJ Vice, DJ Logic, Pretty Lights, Guru and Jazzmattaz, Common, Nas, Grandmaster Flash, Santogold and Trevor Andrew, The Beatnuts, De La Soul, Faux Punk, Boombox, Rahzel and DJ JS1, Shiny Toy Guns, Trouble Andrew, Kid Koala, Team Canada DJs, Pitbull, and Remix Artist Collective”

What about playing from the Tower at Winter X Games?
He’s more than just the DJ for Aspen. He’s the person to keep an eye on for the next Gatsby event or Grimey party. He’s usually there making it “the spot to be.”
