CHAD JACK Vs NASTY PIG Are Back And Serving:
GAG ON IT Brings It To The Dancefloor
New Single Mops and Glows
Snatching References from Tribal, Circuit and Ball Culture
If old school is Franklin Fuentes claiming, “I’m Vanessa Williams, Catwoman and Jessica Rabbit rolled into one,” on his classic bitch track, “Work It Girlfriend,” then the new way is Chad Jack Vs Nasty Pig stomping down the aisle of conteporary dance music references to mop ‘n’ mash tribal, circuit and battle beats in to one fierce diva-drop* of a track. Shablam!
The follow-up to the cuntroversial "eZbreeZ" (COVERGIRL: hated it), “Gag On It” brings back the bitch track, 2011 style. Butch enough for the boys and banji enough for the queens, "Gag On It," is the second collaborative effort from NYC-based international DJ and producer Chad Jack and David Lauterstein, CEO of Nasty Pig, a New York fashion brand born on the legendary Sound Factory dancefloor.
"The scene at Sound Factory (530 W. 27 St.) was so unbelievably creative and diverse. You didn't show up without a look–and you didn't know which way to look! There were drag queens partying with leather men partying with Xtravaganzas. It was the ultimate show." says Lauterstein.
He and business partner Fred Kearney met Chad Jack when they were looking for a DJ to partner up with to sell mix tapes at their Chelsea store. "Chad brought me this mix tape and it blew my mind. We both have such a passion for House music. He was learning to produce and I was obsessing over hooks. Chad would send me beats and lyrics would pop into my head. So we made a record! Two, actually. 'eZeebreeZ' and now 'Gag On It.'"

DJ/Producer CHAD JACK | BIO
With the field of house music DJs continuing to expand exponentially, it’s become increasingly difficult for any single talent to stand out. That is, of course, unless you’re Chad Jack.
In what seemed like practically overnight, this extremely gifted young DJ/producer infiltrated New York’s formidable nightlife scene with his brilliant remix work and recurring gigs at three of the city’s most popular nightclubs, Roxy, Avalon (f/k/a Limelight), and Spirit. Undeniably destined for superstar status, Chad’s vigorous live performances and sophisticated studio productions transcend the dance floor, inspiring awe and cultivating a diverse following of revelers around the world. Most recently , Chad has become a staple in the Brazilian Dance scene, with regular gigs in Sao Paulo and Brasilia. He has headlined major parties from Singapore to Rio, Tel Aviv to Toronto, and Mexico to Montreal. He currently holds residencies at underground parties at SFO’s The End-up , Boston’s Rise, and Vancouver’s The World.
Born and raised in Michigan, Chad first discovered his passion for dance music while listening to radio mix shows he tuned in from nearby Chicago. Inspired by industry pioneers like Farley Keith, Fast Eddie, Bad Boy Bill, and the Hot Mix 5, Chad found a creative outlet for his newfound interest behind the turntables. After immersing himself in the hip-hop music scene, he landed his first DJ gig at Electric Avenue in Grand Rapids, and eventually his own radio show on Magic 108 (WMHG) in Muskegon in the early 1990s. After eight years honing his craft as a battle DJ -- performing theatrical tricks using turntables as instruments a la the DMC mixing competitions -- Chad packed up the vinyl in the summer of 1995 and moved to New York City to further his musical education and career.
His focus soon shifted to house music and he began experimenting on his computer creating his own remixes of popular songs. While working at Eight Ball Records, the self-taught DJ and aspiring producer befriended industry legends Victor Calderone, Hex Hector and Danny Tenaglia. Empowered by their advice and encouragement, Chad worked even harder to take his artistry to the next level. Unburdened by the minutiae of daily administrative tasks, the rookie producer focused his attention on mastering the Logic software program, which he uses to create and manipulate music for his live sets. His unreleased mixes of Missy Elliott’s Work It and Whitney Houston’s Fine generated a great deal of buzz around town, but it was the birthday present he made for Junior Vasquez in 2002 that truly set Chad on a direct course for the upper echelon of disco royalty.
When he handed a CD containing restyled versions of Vernessa Mitchell’s “Reap” and Whitney Houston’s “Whatchulookinat” intermingled together to the person guarding the DJ booth at Earth in NYC, he wasn’t sure if Junior would ever see or hear it. But just two hours later, Junior played his mix and the crowd went absolutely wild. Chad has since remixed Chicola’s “Imagetcha”, Purple Kitty’s “Bang On”, Vernessa Mitchell’s “Took My Life” and “Trouble Don’t Last Always”, as well as produced Jason Walker’s “Set It Free”. In 2009 Chad landed his first Billboard Top 10 Dance Single with "Wish U Love", which peaked at number 6 on the Dance Charts. Chad's 2010 single released on Madtizzy Music, "eZbreeZ" , under the moniker Chad Jack Vs Nasty Pig, shaped up to be a smash Summer Global underground hit , garnering the #1 most downloaded song on Masterbeat for the first two weeks on the site. eZbreeZ set the stage for his 2011 release , GAG ON IT, which is quickly becoming a bonafide worldwide hit, and no no doubt an anthem of 2011. It has become a favorite of other DJs like Peter Rauhoffer, Paulo, Isaac Escalente, Hector Fonseca, Phil Romano, and Micky Friedmann.
While his production work is indeed impressive, Chad’s extraordinary talent and showmanship is perhaps best appreciated during his live DJ sets. Clearly influenced by his hip-hop and early Chicago house origins, yet confident playing any genre of dance music, Chad admits, Its more about how I play the records as opposed to which records I play.
While his distinct style and sound will inevitably continue to evolve over the years, the one thing the ambitious DJ/producer plans to make sure never changes is that when someone walks into a party that he’s playing, they shouldn’t have to ask who’s behind the decks -- they’ll immediately know its Chad Jack.
