Newark producer Nadus is part of state-spanning crew Brick Bandits and one of the main players at Jersey Club night Thread. Nadus pays tribute to his city on "Nxwxrk", a wholly upbeat club track that blends fist-pumping synth stabs with sports champ-esque groans and sweet vocoder squeals of Jersey…Jersey. More than just a tribute in sentiment, Nadus is donating all the proceeds from the sale of his new Broke City EP—which is out today on Belgian label Pelican Fly—to The Newark Boys Chorus School, where Nadus was once a student. He credits his time there as a major influence, especially the month-long trip he took with the school to Europe: "A young inner city kid seeing the world, it builds something in you," he writes in the release notes. "Ambition... determination... whatever it is that got me to this point right here." Stream "Nxwxrk" below and bag the EP here.
