Nadastrom Bringing Fat Basslines, Badass Hair to Moombahton Massive at Grand Central

Yo, beat freaks. It's almost time to slow it down and heat things up at Grand Central, because another edition of Miami Moombahton Massive is coming this way.

D.C. moombah founders Nadastrom will be topping the bill on Thursday, August 16, alongside local boys Craze and JWLZ. Surely, this is the best support Miami can offer. But there's something Nada's got that the local spinners just can't match ... Hair, glorious hair.

Those lush, flowing, mysterious locks are indeed the root of the famous DJ's success. Don't believe us? Let's weave through the icon's history and see if we can't smooth out these split ends.

It all started when Nada was a child. Having spent the early years of his life sans mane, he was weak and small. But as he grew in stature, he allowed it to become untamed. And much like Samson, his rebellious 'do gave him strength, swagger, and points with the ladies.

In 2007, Nada met his musical soulmate, Matt Nordstrom, and the chemistry was immediately palpable. They began to make waves in their hometown, but it wasn't until English DJ Switch caught a glipse of that free-flowing wonder that Nadastrom's fate was sealed. Switch, of course, is bald, and he signed the boys right away. Coincidence or cause?

Another key moment in Nada hair history: That fateful day when he played Dutch house classic "Moombah" at reggaeton speeds, all because he couldn't see through his fringe. Revolutionary.

Now Nada knows not to mess with a good thing, so he hasn't cut that coif in two years. His hair has continued to grow, just like moombahton's popularity. It's a directly-proportional relationship, and you can't argue with math. Skrillex understands first-hand what a good cut can do for a career. That's why he brought Nadastrom on tour, and the rest is history.

Perhaps it sounds absurd, but the truth is often stranger than fiction. Come out to Moombahton Massive and see for yourself. The heat will be up, but the hair will never frizz, and that's how you know.
