Building Beats:
A fundraiser to support after-school music and dj programs.
Although his unique sound sees no boundaries, New Jersey's Nadus truly excels at creating and producing fast-paced Juke, hard-hitting hip-hop, and energetic Jersey Club under the umbrella of East Coast Club music.

Nadus has come a long way since Dirty South Joe, Tim Dolla, Mike V, and the Brick Bandits family put him on the map when he was only fifteen years old. Now at twenty years old, Nadus' signature sound and masterful performances behind the decks have taken him as far as Sydney, Australia. His original productions and remixes have been released on labels like Ninjatune, Palms Out Sounds, Ghettophiles, and Kingdom's Fade To Mind Imprint. He has produced music for the Seattle rapper, Eighty4Fly and is the official DJ and producer for the rap group, NJ Rebels. Nadus is also the co-founder of the "Thread" party with Exrahk, DJ Reck, and Elete of St. Joe Louis.

Ever since he's been on the scene, Nadus has racked up a mile-long list of supporters amongst his peers of DJs and producers, including his mentor DJ Steel, Dave Nada, David Heartbreak, Munchi, DJ Sega, Nick Hook, Cobra Krames, DirtyFingers, DJ Ayres, DJ Tameil, WCKids, Luny P, Sinden, and Diplo, who even wrote a college recommendation for him.
Phi Unit
Phi Unit is a Brooklyn based producer and DJ. His music is rhythm and bass for the club and the bedroom. What started as an obsession to manipulate music on the turntable since his early teen years, has turned into live sets described as a mix of underground global sounds, with future pop harmonies, that make Phi Unit your little sisters favorite DJ.

Scientists and mathematicians have studied the Phi Unit ratio (~1.618) for centuries because of its frequent appearance in many proportions throughout nature. The Phi Unit, also known as the Golden Ratio, can be seen in the arrangement of branches along the stems of plants, the proportion of chemical compounds and crystals, and in the spirals of seashells. Co-opting his name from "the most beautiful number" in existence, Phi Unit's music can be described to have a proportional balance that leads to beautiful harmonies.

A veteran in the Brooklyn and NYC music scene, Phi Unit has performed alongside an ever growing list of acts such as Big Freedia, Tittsworth, Clockwork, Munchi, Nadastrom, Cosmo Baker, DJ Ayres, DJ Sliink, Nick Catchdubs, DJ Sabo, and Que Bajo just to name a few.

Phi Unit is also the Co-Founder and President of Building Beats, a registered non-profit organization that develops and expands DJ and music education programs that teach entrepreneurial, leadership, and life skills.
Jess Jubilee
Though now splitting her time between Miami and Brooklyn, XLR8R’s “artist to watch” Jubilee will always be Brooklyn’s bass sweetheart. Known for her rambunctious combination of upfront bass music, UK house, and tropical flavors, she has become a surefire remedy for ailing dancefloors around the globe.

Co-opting her name from the X-Men character who shot fireworks out of her hands, Jubilee works similar magic when she steps into the DJ booth.

 But she’s also simply Jess, the one-time South Florida raver who grew up obsessively listening to Miami bass on the radio and dancing the night away at underground breaks parties. After making the move to NYC, she quickly infiltrated the DJ circuit and began turning heads with her knowledge of all things bass.

It’s the sweet mix of underground bass and tropical vibes that brings Jubilee from clubs and warehouse parties to the comfort of your own home. Her radio show Fireworks, on both Brooklyn Radio and Electric Soundstage (iHeartRadio’s new electronic station), continuously features fellow global producers such as Sinden, Bok Bok, Mike Q, and Star Eyes. Prior to Fireworks, she has DJed on East Village Radio and put together well received guest mixes for “The Mix Up” on Australia’s Triple J Radio and XLR8R Magazine’s esteemed podcast series.
