In light of the LA club promoter’s recent passing, we revisit the time he linked up with the N.A.A.F.I crew for an in-depth conversation.
Earlier this month, Mustache Mondays co-founder Nacho Nava, a beloved figure in LA’s queer community and club scene, passed away. Given his outsized influence and active role in bringing all kinds of people together (both on and off the dancefloor), his death has prompted an outpouring of grief and heartfelt remembrances. Here, we revisit the time that he joined the N.A.A.F.I crew for a special edition of the Customs show in Los Angeles.
Coinciding with the 2017 edition of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival Los Angeles, this episode finds Mexican Jihad, Fausto Bahía and Lao sharing stories and music with Nacho. Going deep on Mustache and its legacy, he reflects on the party’s most fabulous moments and how he has cultivated its radiant energy over a decade of weeknight blowouts. Amidst the memories, he also offers up a selection of Mustache party-starters, and in the episode’s second hour, Nava gives way to back-to-back sets from Mustache resident DJ and co-founder Josh Peace and Nguzunguzu’s Asmara, who both showcase a bit of the magic that makes the club so wonderfully unique.
