Summit Jaffe, as Numatik, offers fresh and timelessly deep musical expressions of interconnected love. Nestled currently in the ancient mountains of Appalachia, Summit has been digging deeper and deeper into his creative outlets in a mission of self-discovery and unfoldment. After experimenting with and learning the foundations of analog electronic music at a young age, he became enthralled in the infinite creative potential of digital composing and producing music. Through his relationship to the eternal rhythms of life, his creative disciplines, and his global travels, Summit has opened into a deeper understanding of his role on Earth. Numatik is a project created to share his vision of the universe as an interconnected and eternal vibration, through intentionally arranged patterns of sound. This music is created as a modern day song of unity, intended to weave together the worlds of the ancient and the present, the darkness and the light. This music is here to transform dance floors into containers for free movement expression of the divinity within us. Numatik enters your ears as deeply connected sonic landscapes, dripping with futuristic textures, emotionally interwoven with acoustic instrumentation from all around the world, and finished off with a special seasoning of the bootybumpin’ dirty south. Numatik sets often feature many different vocalists and musical performers contributing acoustic compliments to his digital music, bringing a truly unique and sincere offering into the world of electronic music.
Numatik has shared the stage with many acts including Tipper, Alex and Allyson Grey, Rising Appalachia, Kalya Scintilla, The Polish Ambassador, Bluetech, Desert Dwellers, Random Rab, Govinda, Thriftworks, and more.
He has collaborated on musical musical projects with artists such as Natalia Clavier (of Thievery Corporation), Bibi McGill (Guitarist for Beyonce), Rising Appalachia, Ganga Giri, Elijah Ray, and Entheo.
He has shared his original music in places like Costa Rica, Amsterdam, California, Colorado, New York, New Hampshire, Connecticut, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Massachusetts.
DJ Manoj arose from the dancefloor and will always be a dancer at heart. He is one of the pioneers in the west coast dance culture emerging circa 1991 both shaping and being shaped by this amazing adventure. Continually moved and changed by the power of music and the many transformational experiences he encounters while dancing and performing, he now dedicates his life to share with others the inspirations that he has received. Understanding and deeply rooted in the legacy of the the most formidable founding dj's, that the power of dance music is unleashed through the ability to take dancers on a journey, he uses the contemporary technologies available with the vast genres of music to weave a limitless musical landscape.
Realizing every opportunity to play music for others is a gift, he does his best to stay open, meet people where they are at and then take them to a more inspiring, lighter and playful space within themselves as the music comes through.
