Sebastian Widmark: 24 years old, a talented, humble, driven musical prodigy among this generation of musicians. Born on the East Coast, FL, with a mother who was a flight attendant, gave Sebastian the International upper-hand at a young age by living in, and getting to know all of America + Europe's cultural diversity in music. At 2 years old, he was usually found banging on pots and pans in the kitchen, in his pajamas, and singing his own written songs to the beat. It was the fist signs of his attraction to making music, not just listening to it.
After moving to the Bay Area, CA, he was introduced to someone that later became his manager (Mario Flores) ; who later brought him into a situation that started him off on his journey upwards into the music industry. That opportunity, went by the name of "The Slapboyz"
Gabe Schillinger and Phil Cox had been blowing up on the Bay area music scene as the producer team "The Slapboyz" since they first started working together on music production in January of 2006. Shortly after meeting Sebastian, Sebastian (Nexxus) was added to the arsenal in January of 2007 - Making hits for artists such as Messy Marv, Yukmouth, Mistah Fab, Keak Da Sneak, Kafani, Glasses Malone, Ray J and Clyde Carson; Nexxus gave up the "normal life" of a High School student to follow his dreams, and within months earned himself a reputation as one of the hottest young talents in the region.
Sebastian was trained on usage of equipment, and proper studio etiquette by Gabe; Gabe had experience working under the guidance of 3-time Grammy winner and multi-platinum producer Narada Michael Walden at Tarpan studios, where they all continuously developed their phenomenal talent and grew as musical minds.
Spending most of his time in the studio, Sebastian has become an accomplished engineer, and has valuable experience working with artists of all genres. His production style is reminiscent of his influences; Timbaland, Danjahandz, Diplo, The Prodigy, Nirvana, Showtek, Skrillex, Bauuer, Tchaikovsky, Flosstradamus, ect... The name "Nexxus" stems from the word "Nexus" which means the center of something or everything - Which is a perfect way to explain his music. A blend of lush, dreamy soundscapes, coupled with a heavy and mysterious backbone. Ex:
"Nexxus sounds like if Mozart and Diplo had a baby, that was raised by DJ Mustard on crack" - Matt Zolly
Sebastian Widmark, after going solo to pursue his career in Los Angeles, CA - yet still working very closely with "The Legion" - took his production to the next level. For Nexxus and his manager at the time, Matt Zolly (Who previously worked for various Major Record Labels, Booking Agencies, and Management Companies) the plan to takeover is moving quickly, and the contacts made in the previous years are anticipating this duo's every move. Since graduating into the Major Industry, Nexxus has gathered credits such as Left Boy, Pusha T, Juicy J, Akon, French Montana, E-40, Booker T Jones, and many more...
A true artist, he knows that a hit all starts with him and he takes it there without relying heavily on samples. Nexxus is poised to make huge strides this year, and his talent has been quickly recognized Internationally as 'must-have' material for any serious artists' project.
