When you see Nerd Rage perform live, you’ll notice that his music and stage presence are synonymous with each other. Self-described as loud, aggressive, and in-your-face, the 25 year old jokester continues to create music with good vibes, whether he’s behind the decks or in the studio.
Born in Tampa, FL, Devin Rage has always been an avid lover of music. His love for dance music came about at an early age, “…I got into electronic music from groups like The Prodigy, Pendulum, BT, and of course, Daft Punk,” creating mostly electro and drum and bass in his early music endeavors. He began DJing for local nightclubs in Ybor City at the age of 19 (2007). As his local fanship grew, so did the amount of shows a week.
Often playing some of his own productions when he performed, Devin developed a strong sense of what type of sound he wanted to create. “Being aware of what you like in music allows you to figure out what elements are important in your song, what makes up a good catchy riff, put yourself in your fans listening mindset. If I’m sitting in my studio and working on a song and just sitting there, then I will instantly scrap it. I believe if you aren’t jamming just as hard as the people you imagine listening to it, then you are not a true artist.”
With a clear direction on music creation, a new moniker and endorsements from some heavy hitters, the Nerd Rage project debuted with the track “Real Life” with Bro Safari in 2011. “A friend of mine suggested [the name] Nerd Rage, and they thought it was fitting, as I am an avid gamer, so it stuck fairly quickly. All music producers, in some way, shape or fashion, are nerds.” The nerdy single rose to the top of the heap hitting Beatport’s top 10 and was also featured on Beatport’s weekly “Top 10 Must Hear Dubstep Tracks” chart.
Currently, Nerd Rage is turning out originals and remixes left and right with tracks like “Power Treaty” with Sluggo and a remix for Specimen A’s “Rock Star.” You might hear these gems when Nerd Rage takes the stage at a show near you, but what else might you hear? “I like to bring the full element of metal into the vibe while I’m on stage. Very Aggressive, mosh pits, and stage diving. Nonstop jumping and screaming. I want to make sure everyone is able to have the best and most memorable time possible when it comes to the energy and music.”
