Nxwxrk - Nadus
Right now, one of the musical subgenres I look to for really good sounds is Jersey Club. It’s gotten pretty popular, so there’s a lot of kids producing and playing it who couldn’t be further from Jersey and the scene that grew the sound. That can be good and that can be bad.
In part of the good, Jersey producer Nadus got picked up by Belgian record label Pelican Fly who released his Broke City EP in May. If you slept on it, that’s OK but I have to say it’s probably the best five tracks in a single release all year.
If you think that Jersey Club is all gunshot and bed squeak samples and so you’ve passed on listening to it — please take a deep breath and hit play on this track, because right away the piano melody will lead you into a bouncy, percussion-driven trip to Newark.
(This isn’t even my favorite track on the EP, but it’s damn good.)
