Another artist that has recently been drawn to my attention is Nacey. His remix of Dance Area's 'AA 24/7' for Discobelle's competition got in at 3rd place and although the first and second were good, I definitely preferred the old school sample sound this track favoured. I was therfore quite pleased to get some original productions from Nacey and his party companion Starks in my mailbox this morning. Here's a bit of info about the duo.

Starks & Nacey are two-thirds of Nouveau Riche, a monthly party in Washington, DC, started in 2006 by fellow DJ Gavin Holland. In 2008, the party was awarded "Best Dance Night" in the City Paper’s "Best of DC" issue, and the two have been described by the Washington Post as “some of the District’s more prolific DJs.” Starks & Nacey are known for their high-energy sets and have shared the stage with the likes of The Count & Sinden, AC Slater, Nadastrom, MSTRKRFT, Blaqstarr, Miami Horror, Scottie B and Eli Escobar to name a few. Their productions have won contests on Discobelle and Mad Decent, and recently appeared on Fool's Gold label head Nick Catchdubs's Australian Tour Mix. Their debut EP keeps things moving with an introduction to the duo’s distinctive styles, and their attitude of having fun in the club."
