Explore Mexico City's Clubbing Underworld with Buzzy Record Label N.A.A.F.I.

Mexico City isn’t the most obvious metropolitan hotspot within the club music landscape, but something is happening deep within the city’s sweat-drenched nightlife bunkers that’s garnering substantial traction among underground electronic communities all over the globe.

Frustrated by the lack of a proper space where the city’s most avant-minded denizens could congregate and soak up each other’s experimental music and fashion tastes, Oaxaca natives and local DJs Tomás Davó and Alberto Bustamante united forces to launch N.A.A.F.I. (short for “No Ambition And Fuck-all Interest”), a club night-turned-record-label-and-clothing-line that would both dominate and subvert Mexico City’s party scene unlike ever before.

Since its 2010 inception, the collective has expanded to include over 16 members, such as international club set regulars Mexican Jihad, Zakmatic, Lao and Imaabs, with each one harboring a distinct musical style that’s ultimately united by a strong sense of Latin American pride. “It’s pretty much a free for all,” says co-founder Davó. “It’s diverse and non-generic; a mix of chaos is what really makes up the trademark N.A.A.F.I. sound, and it’s always mutating.”
