I am a DJ/Producer from Denver who goes by the name nmd abstract. I am a passionate fan of all types of music. This passion began growing up as a hip hop head listeningtoartists such as The Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest,
Public Enemyand KRS-ONE. These artists introduced me to mylove for music and set the foundation for my musical taste.
As I grew older I started expanding my musical pallet to include more experimental and eclectic sounds such as Radiohead, Four Tet,and DJ Shadow. The ambitious nature of these artists to explore different sounds and artistic angles influenced my own ambition to create music with an experimental flare.
I am aware that my perception of
hip hop is much broader than the misperceptions of it being an artistically limiting genre. With this knowledge as well as the fact that my sets include
everything from hip hop, to electronic and indie music, I have decided to label my style of music
