Nostalgia (Gamification Set)
Time: Friday @ 10:30pm
Video games, music, DJing: repeat. Inspired by the music he heard on the Super Nintendo as a child, Nostalgia writes modern bass music that makes you long for consoles past. He’s written many classic video game anthem remixes but even in his originals you can hear the retro inspiration pushing new ideas forward.
Nostalgia is a beast on 4 decks. His mixing style is fast, precise, and heavy-hitting often going on renlentless drop after drop attacks before giving the audience a bit of rest to check their vitals. Having played all over the USA, Nostalgia has also performed in Canada, Australia, and been a guest at Animalz in Paris. Having numerous Beatport top releases and millions of plays is nice, but let’s be honest about what’s important: music with a soul. One thing that has helped Nostalgia stay beloved as an artist is his passion for putting heart into his music, performances, and the culture around modern bass music.
He has taught workshops on music production and DJing as well as started an online streaming network called Redline Reload that regularly investigated music production and offered feedback to aspiring artists. Though Redline Reload is in break, Nostalgia still gives private lessons and teaches Mixing & Mastering and DJing at Slam Academy in Minneapolis. Put on your best nerdy game shirt and check out Nostalgia when you get the chance.
