It's pretty much impossible to talk about the Jersey Club scene without mentioning Nadus. The young, yet prolific DJ and producer has been tearing up clubs since he had to sneak into them to get inside. While half of America was fist-pumping to brostep, Nadus was was lighting up Jersey's youth with chopped-up club edits and the dances to go with them. After being recognized by some people outside his hometown, he started traveling, and eventually put out his first proper record NXWXRK on DJ Slow's Pelican Fly imprint. The record's a hybrid of the club scene he came up in and what he took in playing around the world, and the rest is history.
On the next edition of The Pre-game, Jubilee and Nadus sit down and discuss his path towards fame thus far while touching up on some fun memories they share, living stints in Paris, and what's next for him. They also touch on his new label, Thread Imprint, and the artists that will soon be gracing their releases. Then Nadus delivers a mix you might want to dance in the mirror to before going out tonight. TGIF!
