Established 2007: The collective brainchild of Washington, D.C. natives Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom. Emerging duo experiencing significant buzz. i.e. The debut release from Nadastrom sold out on vinyl and became a digital store annual bestseller.

As a longtime resident of Spin Magazine’s “Best Party in America”, Taxlo, Dave Nada perfected his in-demand dance floor sensibility, combining elements of dance, hip hop, and punk rock. Not long after that he was touring the world with well-respected DJs like DMC champ DJ Craze, DJ Ayres, and Tittsworth. With a Grammy nomination in his collection, Matt Nordstrom has been producing, remixing, and engineering for the world’s top electronic artists for nearly a decade. His work appears on a long list of labels including Global Underground, Ultra, Saved Records, Renaissance, EMI, and Minus.

In 2008 Grammy Award nominee Switch (M.I.A., Santogold, Basement Jaxx, Diddy, Lily Allen) invited the duo to join his renowned label Dubsided. Their debut Pussy EP topped international charts, reaching the number one download spot on tastemaker store Beatport. iDJ Magazine said the lead single off the record offered “true ingenuity before plunging headfirst into a vicious bassline.” That same year, Nadastrom also scored the most downloaded remix of the year on the trend-setting blog Discobelle.

Another Dubsided release in 2009 led to guest spots on BBC Radio One and invites to play alongside Diplo, A-Trak, Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, and Pete Tong as part of a worldwide tour schedule. The Washington Post wrote, “Nadastrom’s productions and live sets are like the dance-music equivalent of the mythical Spinal Tap amplifier that goes to 11. Their style pushes club, house and electro sounds to a hyper-concentrated energy level. For the popular duo, peak time isn’t just 1 a.m., it’s the whole five or more hours of their set.”

In 2010, amid production for the Kid Sister feat. Nina Sky single “Look Out Weekend” and numerous remixes for the likes of Kid Cudi, Benni Benassi, Pase Rock, Christina Aguilera, and Art vs Science (to name a few), Dave gave birth to Moombahton, a reggaeton vs electro fused genre that has gained the attention of DJ’s worldwide and was featured in that year’s Rolling Stone “Hot List” and NPR. Between shows the duo maintained a hectic studio schedule and emerged with a series of singles set to be released on Dubsided in 2011. The overwhelming response for their DJ peers leads us to believe that this will be Nadastrom’s most exciting year yet.
