We’ve been following Dava Nada and Matt Nordstrom AKA DC started now L.A based outfit Nadastrom since they dropped their first track as pioneers of the moombahton movement. The years have passed and the duo are now finally ready to release their forthcoming debut album February 23rd on Dubsided/Friends of Friends.
We’re very glad to be able to premiere the stream of album track “Headed Home” which basically sounds like late night electronica infused slo-mo house with hypnotic vocals that should be the soundtrack for your next ride home.

With this mix, Washington DC producer/dj Dave Nada heads into a bit of a different direction than his Nadastrom project and the mix contains just what the title suggest – pure vibes.
I had the good fortune of being able to call Washington, DC my home for three years. When it comes to music scenes, DC often gets overlooked as most people consider the center of the music universe to be either New York or Los Angeles. However, there’s so many things that are bubbling in this town and soon DC will be as well known for its music as it is for its politics.
There are already several DC musicians that are making waves on a national scale. Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom of Nadastrom invented the fusion genre of house music and reggaeton known as Moombahton in 2009 accidentally at a DC house party. Andrew Wallace aka Nacey has found success with friend and constant collaborator Steve Starks (Steve Bock) as Starks & Nacey, remixing Solidisco’s “Hooked On You” single in 2012. On his own, Andrew is the producer of up-and-coming “aquawave” trio Misun who played SXSW this past year and have been featured in publications across the board including FACT and RCRD LBL. And let’s not forget 2/3’s of the founding members of the famed U St Music Hall (and my second home for several years) Tittsworth and Will Eastman. But all is this is just the tip of the DC music iceberg.
At the end of last month, Sebastian Leger and Jordan Peak headlined a bill at U St Music Hall that was opened by DC music makers aLamont (Sami Yenigun and David Eklund). Recorded at the venue, aLamont has put together a set of new sounds coming out of the nation’s capital featuring DC stalwarts like Nadastrom and the Beautiful Swimmers, as well as up and comers Pat Jagla and Teaj. Also included are new cuts from DC labels Future Times and Silence in Metropolis. So whatever you heard about DC, forget it. This is the new DC and it goes very deep.

Super productive Lithuanian dj/producer Vytis Gruzdys, professionally known as Boyfriend releases his new 4 track EP entitled “Vodka House” on Nadastrom started label Diabluma Sound. It’s a 110bpm guaranteed party smasher with a deep, lowslung bassline to rattle your ribcage along with the “drink vodka” tagline that fans all over the world have been anxiously awaiting ever since French wonder producer/dj Brodinski dropped it in both his Radio 1 Essential Mix and his “European Introduction To Moombahton” mixtape. Label heads Nadastrom flips the title track into a dirty b-more sounding affair.
