During a recent track hunting expedition, I stumbled upon a gem of an artist that instantly caught my attention. Nate Katz’s unique blend of great vocals and minimal vibes were a perfect fit for my taste, and I knew immediately that I wanted to showcase his talent in this month’s episode.

Nate Katz Profile picture

Born and raised in Santa Cruz, now residing in Los Angeles, Nate is a self-taught DJ and producer with a sound that carries a distinctive European flavor that I’m used to, yet remains truly unique. His latest release, “I’m Happy!,” is a testament to his innovative approach to music production.

The Title track “I’m Happy!” Features an oustanding sample from a track I heard a few years back called “Tailwhip” by Men I trust, check it out here. I immediately noticed the sample as it sports a pretty female vocal on it that you can’t forget.

Setting the stage for Nate’s tunes were BES’s “Black Origami” and MHMD’s minimal dub of “Yalla” – two tracks as unique as they are engaging.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Nate about various things including his go-to software, the Studer A800 Plugin, which he uses to provide punch and seamless mixing between tracks. What’s more impressive is that he told me that it took Him just a few hours to put the release together! Follow Nate at @natekatzdj on Instagram to keep up with his upcoming releases.

Side B

On Side B of this episode, I took listeners on a sonic journey, blending deep house with deep tech and minimal in my signature style. Experimenting with new mixing techniques, I manipulated pacing and energy, starting the mix at around 124 BPM and gradually increasing it to 127 BPM – perfect for those outdoor summer parties.

If you enjoyed this episode, I highly recommend checking out my feature on Jimpster. Like this episode, it offers a powerful Side B and a deep dive into deep house. And for fans of deep house, Jimpster needs no introduction. So, don’t hesitate, hit play, and let the music take you on a journey.
