Nadastrom- The Pussy EP

nadastrom

So it turns out that this pussy is not one to fuck with.  OK sorry- I couldn’t resist.  But in all seriousness, this might be the biggest EP to have dropped so far this month. 

Hailing from Washington, DC, Nadastrom, the production duo and Taxlo Sonar staple consisting of Matt Nordstrom and Dave Nada, has just dropped what could be considered one of the biggest accomplishments this year for their genre.  What genre, exactly?  I like to consider it a mix of Baltimore Club, classic turntablism. and electro {kind of like that whole Crookers bass-tone (dare I say WHOMP) sound).  No matter what kind of label you try to put on it, though, this EP is an absolute club banger (I’m sure there is a joke in there somewhere… use your imagination).  

After a summer of putting out top notch remixes of Estelle and Kanye’s hit “American Boy,” Tittsworth’s “WTF,” and Lil’ Wayne’s “Millie,”  the Pussy EP dropped in the early fall on 12″ format only.  A week ago the boys took the tracks digital exclusively on Beatport where it has climbed the ALL OF BEATPORT chart to hit an impressive #4 position and is holding down the Electro House chart at #2.  

As for the tracks themselves, the obvious stand out is “Pussy.”  Sampling the classic Soul II Soul song, “Back to Life,” which you may remember from that scene in the movie “Belly,”  this song releases  over and over into cut beats and the best electro bass you’ve heard this year.  Yes, better than “Day N Night.”  And far more clever.   The other honorable mention from this four-tracker is “Tween You + Me” which features another Taxlo staple, Blaqstarr, who’s less familiar vocal track is equally infectious.  

You really need to hear it to believe it and you’ll get your chance this Friday at the 9:30 Club @ the Blisspop Holiday Party Extravaganza with Tittsworth and friends.  You can also catch Nordstrom around DC working in the studio with Deep Dish and Nada working with Kanye’s current tour DJ, DJ Craze. (Craze, by the way, is unbelievable- no one uses vinyl like he does.  got the chance to see him a few years ago- if you have the opportunity, don’t miss it)  

In the mean time, cruise on over to beatport for your copy of this monster.
