In an era where mixes and mixtapes were all the rage, 2008's most impressive mixtape could've easily been Dave Nada's Mad Decent Worldwide Radio mix for Episode 37, entitled "Love in This Bmore Club." At the time, Baltimore club music was serving the same role in underground venues as trap does now at mainstream festivals. It was the de facto "turn up" sound of "turn up" sounds, so then-resident at Baltimore's resident TaxLo party Nada exploring club's more soulful and romantic side was an unexpected step. Fast forward six years and Nada's the inventor of moombahton, half of Nadastrom and married to Jen Lasher. Yet still, club music is at the core of this man, so he returns to Mad Decent Worldwide Radio for Episode 86, presenting (alongside his wife) "Love in this Jersey Club." Similar to Mad Decent Worldwide Radio #37, #86 finds the soul and romance in modern underground dance's favorite turn up, but now with an expectation of brilliance. Here are more words (and a tracklist) from Mad Decent:
"Back in the fall of 08 Dave Nada dropped a mix for MDWWR titled "Love in this bmore club" highlighting the softer side of what was at the time the driving force in club music. Bmore club was every DJ's best friend allowing you to transition into anything from Nu Metal to new wave at the drop of a hat. 6 Years and a million soundcloud bootlegs later Jersey club kids along with some help from a few talented norwegians are carrying the flag for a new generation, creating hyper club friendly renditions of everything from Bill Withers to Bobby Smurda. We thought it would be rad to have Dave Nada return this time bringing along his party starting wife Jen Lasher for another round of sexy time jams highlighting the best Jersey club has to offer."
