Meet Our DJs for This Year's Dance Party!

Scratch & Sniff

Touhou from Scratch (or was it Sniff?) with the earth-shattering kaboom of trap, dubstep, and random anime mashups from Sniff (or was it Scratch?), you’ll be moving all night long. least until they both retreat back to the Batcave.

DJ Chef Nguyen

DJ Chef Nguyen is a circuit club DJ who has been residing at Missie B’s in Kansas City for 9 years. Known for his transitions and mixing arrangements, he never fails to send chills down your spine. During his career, he hosted “Club Soda” as a radio DJ. Two years later, he transformed the 2-hour radio show into an hour-long podcast. This year at Naka-Kon, he plans on focusing his techniques to combine the club vibe with Bemani’s game series. He will continue to honor 20 years of Dance Dance Revolution, as well as serve various tracks from the popular rhythm games Beatmania IIDX, DanceRush, and Sound Voltex. Be prepared for the true club experience straight from the heart of this DJ!

DJ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Debuting this year, DJ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ! DJ Scratch and Sniff have taken many pupils over the years, and now, one has finally risen to take the stage for themselves. His identity is a mystery to all but Scratch and Sniff. What will he have in store for Naka-Kon? He provided only this image to signal his coming. We hope truly that that his skills behind the wheels of steel are greater than his drawing skills. Oh, and Chef helped too.
