When the beat drops at a Nadastrom, comprised of Dave Nada & Matt Nordstrom, show, you better have your hands up. The D.C.-born, L.A.-based duo of DJ-producers come from different backgrounds, but share a ravenous appetite for extremes. As prime architects of Moombahton the duo have been praised in the pages of Spin and Rolling Stone, pumped on the airwaves ofBBC Radio 1 and NPR, and revered at nightclubs and festivals across the planet. When Nada and Nordstrom came together in 2007, the chemistry was instant and the music was colossal. The group signed to Switch’s, Dubsided, label where their debut EP, “Pussy,” immediately topped the charts on Beatport. Since, Nadastrom has produced tracks for artists like Kid Sister and have done remixes for Kid Cudi, Benny Benassi, Christina Aguilera, Waka Flocka Flame, the Death Set and Alex Clare. In 2010, they relocated to LA and hit the road, performing at the some of the biggest festivals in dance music, including Australia’s Creamfields, Camp Bisco festival, Bass Island, the Mad Decent Block Party, and HARD Summer in LA. Moombahton has become a movement of its own, with Nadastrom serving as the genre’s leading ambassadors. “There are never any rules,” says Nada of the duo’s approach. “And Moombahton helped us realize that even more.”
A versatile solo producer, crowd riling DJ, owner of the revered Frite Nite label (B. Bravo, Eprom, Ana Sia) and key figure in the Friends of Friends collective, Paul Salva knows how to control a room. After dropping one of 2012’s biggest tracks, a collaborative remix of Kanye West’s “Mercy," his work continues to promote complexity through a synthesis of contrasting styles, showcasing dips into house motifs, grooves in smooth boogie funk, and massive roiling bass waves. A Chicago native who developed his craft in San Francisco and currently resides in Los Angeles, Salva has been invited to perform on the world’s biggest stages as a graduate of the Red Bull Music Academy. Aside from his live performances, Salva hones his production talents as one of the cornerstones of the Friends of Friends label alongside Shlohmo, Mexicans With Guns, and Groundislava. His 2011 debut full-length, ‘Complex Housing’ and ‘Yellobone’ EP both received critical acclaim (Pitchfork, FADER, FACT, and others), leading him to exclusive mixes for Mary Anne Hobbs, TheFADER, and XLR8R. As label owner, Salva has seen his Frite Nite imprint emerge as one of North America’s premier sources of West Coast electronic bass music, exploring all corners of the electronic soundscape and harnessing diversity to produce compositions that transcend genre boundaries.
DJ, producer, remixer, label boss… for nearly a decade now Graeme Sinden has stealthily been establishing himself as one of the leaders of UK dance music as we know it. Growing up in Hockley, rural Essex, the first music that really struck a chord with a teenaged Sinden was rap music, but trips to record shops in nearby Southend soon fostered an interest in Jungle, which by his own admission took over his life. Upon meeting Dave Taylor and Joshua Harvey, aka Herve, Sinden would go on to create well-known collaborations such as Overbooked, Red Hot, and release an album On Domino Records. In 2010 he took the leap that many producers hope to do and founded his own label, Grizzly, stating “I want Grizzly to reflect my style of club music which is all-embracing, fun, disparate and twisted up… ‘grey area’ sounds, music you can’t quite put your finger on, stuff that sits between genres and puzzles you at the same time. Grizzly will bring this sense of unexpectedness, flitting between styles – it’s serious music without taking itself too seriously.” Always keen to set new challenges for himself, itchy feet and the need for a change of scene prompted a move to LA last year. “The music scene in LA is at a really interesting crossing point, there are some great parties and some really open minded folk. Dance music is exciting here, plus there is loads of scope for working with new rappers and singers.” Now, in 2013 he has been drafted to produce rapper Mykki Blanco’s Betty Rubble EP, has released EP’s on Fools Gold & Unknown To The Unknown, has launched his new collaborative project - The Crystal System, and is set to release on Boys Noize’s BNR Trax label in October.
