Why do you play music?

I got into music in my early teens producing horrid techno in MS DOS & Assembly. I have continued to produce and perform to chase the dream of that little boy… to one day produce a Björk album and receive little to no recognition.

What do you see as your role in the music world going into the future?

My role started out as the guy who would try (and usually fail) to get Seattlites to dance. The days of Northwestern dance-phobia are almost gone so now I have taken it upon myself to bridge the gap between traditional disco and funky house, stopping once in a while to sprinkle some UK bass in the club.

Favorite label or artist from the last year?

Favorite artist in 2013 so far: Opolopo
Favorite label: Black Acre Records

What are you looking forward to most this year?

I am really looking forward to putting my first wax disc out into the world… I keep getting side tracked and we keep pushing it back. Sad face. I have also been running a label called PYT Records and will be releasing some really great tracks & EPs by some extremely talented producers like Fukuyama, Casewag, Future Feelings, Chesto & Levantine.That’s also got me quite excited!

Nark (a.k.a. Kevin Kauer, Editor in Chief of Nark Magazine, Bottom Forty creator and Q Nightclub resident) has been exposing himself at parties around the nation, hip to hip with the finest musicians and record selectors around such as In Flagranti, Jacques Renault, Honey Soundsystem, Tim Sweeney, Horse Meat Disco, Moon Boots, Hunee, Sleazy McQueen, Juanita More, DJ Assault, House of Stank and many more. His constant drive to send a dance floor through space keeps a flowing stream of classic club and post-modern disco at your feet, just waiting to tango." "Kevin Kauer has been an unstoppable force in the Seattle party scene. He was worked with just about every venue imaginable creating an array of events with creativity, passion, and impeccable design, not to mention the hectic DJ schedule that has taken this young man up and down the west coast and solidified him as a key player in the dance world." -Blueyedsoul "Kevin gets his spot in the Seattle Peach 100 for always doing the most and for constantly pushing the envelope in terms of material–his photos and parties are full of drag queens, burlesque dancers and other glamazonia, and he can play a dance set that burns up the floor without resorting to tired top 40 hits." -Seattle Peach "..the beats coming from Stallion Saturdays at Rebel more than made up for all the unyielding musculature in the club. Seattle's DJ Nark had appeared for the evening, sporting fetching neckwear and spinning even more fetching, not-corny-at-all jams from disco greats to more current, creepy-good modern bangers. By the end of the night the place was packed.." -Caitlin Donohue, San Francisco Bay Guardian
