Nark (a.k.a. Kevin Kauer, Editor in Chief of Nark Magazine and Bottom Forty founder) has been exposing himself at parties around the nation, hip to hip with the finest musicians and record selectors around such as Bicep, In Flagranti, Jacques Renault, Tensnake, Honey Soundsystem, Prosumer, Tim Sweeney, Shit Robot, Horse Meat Disco, Moon Boots, Paul Johnson and many more. His constant drive to send a dance floor through space keeps a flowing stream of classic club, techno, acid and post-modern disco at your feet, just waiting to tango.
Nark currently resides at The Eagle in Seattle throwing a kaleidoscope of weekly events including Jack, Beam Me Up, Shade and most famously Dickslap, a party that started as a political movement and has since turned into a travelling event, packing clubs up and down the west coast. Currently he also curates an underground techno after hours referred to as the “Why,” and an annual pride festival weekend which attracts thousands and raises money for the LGBTQ community of Seattle. In the past Nark was the first resident and creative director of Q Nightclub in Seattle, working the countries 7th best soundsystem every Saturday night, and has been showcased by Decibel Festival, Honey Soundsystem, Flammable, Honcho, Beta Nightclub and many other above and underground events and festivals.
