  • Steve Mizek & Savile stand in the ranks of a resurgent underground in American dance music. The pair co-manage Argot and Tasteful Nudes, the former of which focuses on North American-based artists, while Nudes’ roster explores more international talent. As DJs, they cover a breadth of genres and moods, priding themselves on an open-ended approach to selection that flouts expectation. Endlessly challenging one another to push beyond their comfort zones, you might hear a ballroom classic flirting with 90’s Synewave, or a sly pop hit nestled against a Chicago jack track. In 2016, they crisscrossed the United States, from LA to New York and between, and were invited to Europe for the first time to debut at the legendary Panorama Bar. As label managers, they are tireless champions of the budding voices behind their releases. Reinforced by Mizek’s longstanding search for the best electronic music has to offer as editor-in-chief of Little White Earbuds, Argot and Tasteful Nudes have showcased many important voices since their inception, including the Black Madonna, Royer, Amir Alexander, and Gunnar Haslam.
