Nadus – Scratchin’ Me Up

This one really has more ton than moombah, so the genre tag moombahsoul is a bit iffy. But it’s got soul for sure. “Scratchin’” is a wordless love letter written in dembow riddims. How about almaton? Anyway, this fire track comes from Newark’s own Nadus, a young DJ and producer from Brick Bandits makin moves. Whether it’s Jersey and Baltimore club or juke and moombahton, he likes to keep it diverse, and it’s beginning to attract attention. His remix of Mixpak FM alum Mike Q was just released on Fade to Mind, and two more remixes are soon to come on Fool’s Gold and T&A. If you like this, there’s another free download over on Culture System. (Art by Chul hwee Kim.)
