NazcarNation was founded by coworkers Chris Wargo and Craig Robert Smith in Los Angeles, CA in late 2008. They immediately began working on song ideas in Wargo's apartment studio. Their sound combined the hip-hop and dubstep influences of Wargo with the melodic, ambient leanings of Smith.
After taking trips to a cabin in Lake Arrowhead for inspiration and to track the louder bits with drummer/multi-instrumentalist Mark Balane (also a coworker) they had the framework completed for their live set. NazcarNation crowd-tested their sample heavy grooves to packed venues in LA such as The Hollywood Standard, The Viper Room, and SPACE15TWENTY.
While mainly instrumental in the beginning, the songs were expanded to include vocals and gave the overall sound a pop leaning. The end of the beginning came in Summer of 2010 when they completed their debut EP, "Dynazty", which is mastered by Nic Pope at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco.
