This week’s Evermix Exclusive comes from Naufer, a Miami-based producer from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and the former frontman for the Dominican punk rock band Pericles. Touring the globe with Pericles in 2008, while stuck on long bus rides and endless flights, Cris began experimenting with DAWs and the rest is history.
His melodic techno productions and live sets draw on his longtime skills as a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. His engineering expertise was honed at the ripe young age of 12 when he would accompany his older brother, a DJ himself, to gigs and help set up sound-checks. In this setting, Cris came face to face with the powerful emotion that music can inspire in people.
Under his Naufer alias, Cristóbal has released productions on Alfa Romero Recordings, Phantomdeck Records, Future is Now records, and his own label Nosso. He has shared the decks with the likes of Tale of Us, Victor Calderone, Danny Howells, Bedouin, Oliver Koletzki, Thugfucker, Nick Höppner and many more. Today Cris finds himself living in South Florida, producing and djing, and holding a residency at the iconic Club Space Miami.
