Wax Romeo's Celevrate w/ NADASTROM ( Friends of Friends, DC/LA) & Guests

  • The Hifi Club 219 10 Ave SW Calgary, AB, T2R 0A4 Canada

Of all the sounds and subgenres to grow out of American dance music in the past decade, moombahton is one of the most unusual. A hybrid of Dutch house and reggaeton, its undulating whine was inescapable for a while, pioneered by Dave Nada and favoured by big-name DJs like Skrillex and Diplo. As Nadastrom, Nada and Matt Nordstrom became de facto poster boys for the sound, but the label doesn't completely fit. Their earliest records are more informed by house and electro, and at Decibel last year they played a set of refined, melodic house, which is just what they deliver on this surprising debut album.
