Navbox emigrated to the States in the 90s from Iran as a classically trained pianist with a deep passion for music. That passion turned him onto electronic music and he picked up a pair of turntables at the turn of the last century. In the early 2000's, he got his start playing in Washington DC before relocating to Boston and studying music engineering. Soon after, he found himself playing the underground circuit in Boston, comfortably tangled up in house & techno yet again.
Returning to the District in '08, he continued to pursue DJ'ing and found that the city was missing an underground dance music scene. He founded Stranger Than Paradise (STP) and began curating events in clubs, bars, warehouses, rooftops and wherever else he could. Navbox mastered his craft playing alongside leading talents like Cassy, Bruno Pronsato, Delano Smith, Jan Krueger and many others.
Fast forward to 2016 and Navbox has been at it for many years. Between DJ'ing and producing, he is booker and resident DJ for Flash in Washington DC, an incredible venue built for house and techno. His love for music is evident in his musical repertoire, spanning from deep house to techno, and his passion leads him to seek music that moves the feet as well as the mind. Navbox portrays the DJ-set as a journey, continually striving to break down static conceptions of house music in ways that inspire listeners beyond the confines of clubs and parties.
Resident Dj Flash DC
Minimal | House | Techno and everything in between!
Throe is the moniker of Washington D.C. based DJ Peter Kaufmann.
A long time dance music aficionado, his skills as a selector are supported by a curiosity and plain passion that ignores rigid genre boundaries. A brief run through of past shows confirms this fact. He has served as both headlining talent and as an opener for a diverse array of respected dance music names including Leon Vynehall, Mathias Kaden, George Fitzgerald, Till Von Sein, Bambounou, Jeremy Underground, Jacques Greene, Norm Talley, Pangaea, and many others. With a knack for moving seamlessly between house, techno, and disco, his sets are additionally characterized by free-flowing energy and an organic combination of classic, current, and progressive sounds. He plays regularly throughout the D.C. area, taking control of the decks at globally recognized venues like Flash, U Street Music Hall, Eighteenth Street Lounge, and the Velvet Lounge. In addition to his years of experience DJing, he is the co-founder of #BODYFEEL -- a monthly showcase that has spotlighted cutting edge local & international dance music talent since its inception in 2014. Throe is currently represented by DC based BFF Bookings.
Taiga will put a smile on your face.
Martín Miguel is A&R and manager of DC-based disco/house wax label Better Listen Records. In addition to managing the imprint, Martín is a resident at some of the District’s finest dance establishments (namely Eighteenth Street Lounge and Flash) and is also closely tied in to the house music blogosphere; having previously managed the now-defunct Dance Party Chronicles and contributing currently to international sites Bolting Bits and Sleazy Beats.
Lovers was an alias used by Tutti & Nessuno to release a commercial Eurodance cover of '7 Seconds' originally sung by Youssou N'Dour and Neneh Cherry in 1994.
Indisputably, the cover was poorly made, with an approximative phonetic reconstitution of the French lyrics sung by N'Dour.
See also Paradise Fall, who also covered the song in the same style.
