Miami Moombahton Massive at Grand Central on Thursday, August 16

Yo, beat freaks. It's almost time to slow it down and heat things up at Grand Central, because another edition of Miami Moombahton Massive is coming this way. D.C. moombah founders Nadastrom will top the bill on Thursday alongside local boys Craze and JWLS. Surely, this is the best support Miami can offer. But there's something Nada's got that the local spinners just can't match: hair, glorious hair. Those lush, flowing, mysterious locks are indeed the root of the famous DJ's success. Much like Samson, his rebellious 'do gives him strength, swagger, and points with the ladies. In 2007, Nada met his musical soul mate, Matt Nordstrom, and the chemistry was immediately palpable. They began to make waves in their hometown, but it wasn't until English DJ Switch caught a glimpse of that free-flowing wonder that Nadastrom's fate was sealed. Switch, of course, is bald, and he signed the boys right away. Coincidence or cause? Nada knows not to mess with a good thing, so he hasn't cut that coif in two years. It has continued to grow, just like moombahton's popularity. It's a directly proportional relationship, and you can't argue with math.
