This week we are taking a look at the the Dj/Producer Nick Dexter AKA FRSHMNYR. Born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, Dexter grew up with a strong musical background, being a classically trained clarinet player. In Middle school, he was introduced to prominent electronic acts like Skrillex, Kaskade and Deadmau5 and soon decided to begin creating his own music. His early work had strong house influences. As he got older, he decided to focus more on Hip-Hop production and spent most of high school producing beats for rappers. In his senior year, his friends began trying to convince him to return to EDM, however, it wasn’t until he moved to MTSU that he really decided to dive back into the genre.
Since moving back to EDM, his most recent music has drawn heavily from dubstep and trap influences. He stated that he draws a lot from artists he’s gotten to know over the years, including Ray Volpe, Tisoki, Nitti Gritti, Slick Thieves and Fox Stevenson. He also mentioned that he is still inspired by several Hip-Hop acts including Post Malone, Migos and Kid Cudi. Earlier this year, he released his remix of Nitti Gritti’s “Blame on Me” which was actually reposted on Gritti’s Soundcloud account. He is also creating a strong presence in Nashville as a DJ, making 2 appearances at the popular Grande Thursdays events.
Today he released his new track, “Count on Me”. This upbeat, dubstep track is the perfect way to start off the summer! This guy has a bright future ahead of him, and I’d highly recommend checking out his music!
