First: there is a buzz...
A sort of ringing in the ears.
Second: every single nerve under your skin begins to twitch and pop;
Your spine contracts and convulses,
As if the Earth suddenly took on a much larger mass;
You can feel the reality of the immediate moment latch onto you
Like the venom of a snakebite slowly seeping into your veins...
Every single hair on the back of your neck stands on end,
Your pupils dilate with eager apprehension,
The world closes in and collapses into tunnel-vision,
Someone flips the switch...
Nic "Ridic" Novus has been dropping some of the thickest, sickest Drum 'n Bass, Drumstep, Dubstep, and Breakbeat sets being heard in the clubs in his home town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
After only 3 short years of hammering out his style and skill-set under the tutelage of Mario Massa, leader of the Better Breakbeat Bureau and arguably one of the most prominent, respected, and pioneering of all Breakbeat DJ's in Milwaukee within the last decade, Nic Ridic has quickly risen to recognition as one of the hardest-hitting, bass-driven DJ's in the city.
He has also earned and maintained a respected status as co-promoter and "pillar" of the Milwaukee Noize Collective for the last two of those years; and, with the help of the General Manager at "Club Anything," Gary "Kaze" Czaplewski, had a successful run at managing a monthly Dubstep/Drumstep/DnB bass-fueled dance party alongside Mali G. and No Parimeter, the husband/wife duo that leads and coordinates Zeroth Law Productions, during the summer and fall of 2011.
... !!! BE WARNED !!! ...
"Ridic" isn't a moniker very easily conveyed until it is witnessed first-hand - as his DJ sets when experienced live are, to put it simply: RIDICulous - and his raw talent and savvy-slick track selections will continue to leave you guessing what in the !@#$% he's going to drop next...
But above all - do not let his calm, collected, "Richard B. Riddick"-esque off-stage aura deceive you...
Because as soon as *this* Ridic enters the limelight, you will find yourself slipping into the frenetic frenzy of the sonic vortex he creates - leaving you in the wake of an unseen mutant magic he conjures to evoke the menacing musical monsters GROWLING in the ground beneath you.
Are you ready
... to Ridic ... ?
