Let NAAFI Producer OMAAR Take You On A Ride With His “GTR” Double Single

The Mexico City DJ turned his supercar obsession into the inspiration for his newest single.

December 11, 2015

NAAFI was first born in 2010 as a club night designed to highlight music that was not being heard in their native Mexico City. Almost six years later, they are a thriving collective/label hybrid. Fresh off a Beats 1 residency this fall, they are still busy bigging up their strong roster of Mexican and Chilean artists (including another FADER fave Imaabs).

Their most recent release is a two-track single from OMAAR, a young DJ and producer from the Mexico City suburbs. "While researching super cars on the internet I stumbled upon Nissan's GTR R35, aka Godzilla," OMAAR told The FADER. "I found myself obsessed with the sound of its engine and I decided to sample the sound and make 2 tracks—the first one of the motor starting and a second one of the motor accelerating. Eventually I'll have to buy the car and accelerate the motors until it blows up." OMAAR's "GTR" double single is out today via NAAFI.
