A veteran to the club scene since 2005, it’s no secret as to why Navic has climbed the ranks of the night club circuit to become one of the most sought after DJ’s around. Unlike most in the game, Navic prides himself as an open format purist by incorporating his unique bootlegs. Possessing a style that blends top 40 with new wave hip-hop, Navic brings a nostalgic flare and unique stage presence that is second to none.
Hailing from Chicago, Navic broke onto the scene with his first residency at Moes Cantina in 2005. Over the next several years, his popularity sky-rocketed as he dropped mix after mix, cementing his place in the Midwest DJ scene. In 2010, Navic expanded his reach to the west coast, taking up residency at Wet Republic in Las Vegas, NV. As the crowds grew, so did his notoriety, and Navic sold out virtually every club. It became crystal clear after his West coast tour: This was no hobby or career, but a calling.
After his successful run through the Las Vegas, Navic returned to Chicago in 2012 to focus on the business side of his craft, founding PLAN B PROMO. He grew the business from the ground up to become Chicago’s top 21+ promotion companies, setting a foundation for his future and allowing him return to his love: lighting up a crowd. He began his journey of scorching the night club scene. He never looked back as he quickly became one of the most sought after DJ’s in the Chicagoland area, holding residencies for React Presents at The Mid and Prysm.
These days, Navic barely has time to sleep. With residencies all over the city and gigs across the country, there’s hardly a night where Navic isn’t doing what he loves: igniting crowds and bringing down the house.
Navic is on fire, and he’s never looking back.
DIOX doesn’t just spin beats: he distributes pure auditory amphetamine. You never know what his set will morph into on the next track.
