NARK (2MR, Mr Intl, Bottom Forty, Get Up)
Purveyor of slithering acid. Community builder. Bottom Forty Label owner. Club veteran. Party politician. Secretive producer. Zealous remixer. Anxiety-ridden intro-extroverted socialite. Totally nice and likes to be pet gently. Requires naps. Spotted hiding on stage with Daniel Avery, Audion, Jacques Renault, Matrixxman, Avalon Emerson, The Black Madonna, Red Axes, Tim Sweeney, Bicep, Honey Soundsystem, Jennifer Cardini, Paramida and many others. Known to make singles with Andy Butler (Hexxy). Forthcoming 2MR artist. Inspired by Sega Genesis techno. Prefers brief sentences and elongated sets. A pusher of American Techno, according to Resident Advisor, Decibel Festival, Vice Magazine, The Advocate and others. Well-traveled gig player, can say “biyee” in several languages.

Nark currently resides at The Eagle in Seattle throwing a kaleidoscope of events most famously Dickslap, a party that started as a political movement, an event that Thump/Vice Magazine says saved Seattle nightlife, and has since turned into a traveling party and internationally recognized brand, as well as running Bottom Forty, a Seattle collective of DJs, record label, podcast and occasional event. Nark also curates an annual alternative pride festival weekend in Seattle which attracts thousands and raises money for the LGBTQ community of Seattle while creating scenarios of radical inclusivity including the Pride is for Everyone movement in Seattle and Vancouver, BC.

"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 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.."

NARK

NARK (2MR, Mr Intl, Get Up Records, Bottom Forty)
Founder of Nark Magazine, and the record label, party and mix series known as Bottom Forty, Nark (aka Kevin Kauer) is devoted to dance music and club culture. Bouncing from city to city with a smile and a bag of tricks, Nark is repeatedly paired in the booth with some of dance music's greatest tastemakers such as The Black Madonna, Daniel Avery, Jacques Renault, Matrixxman, Red Axes, Audion, Tim Sweeney, Bicep and many more. Nark has been seen playing records around the states and in Tokyo, Tel Aviv, Berlin, London, Paris and more, so he knows how to say "excuse me" and ask for water in several languages and can be calmed into a paralytic state simply by being pet.

Nark currently resides at The Eagle in Seattle throwing a kaleidoscope of events most famously Dickslap, a party that started as a political movement, an event that Thump/Vice Magazine says saved Seattle nightlife, and has since turned into a traveling party and internationally recognized brand, as well as running Bottom Forty, a Seattle collective of DJs, record label, podcast and occasional event. Nark also curates an annual alternative pride festival weekend in Seattle which attracts thousands and raises money for the LGBTQ community of Seattle.
