The most recent addition to the Nerds camp is Marcus Nasty, who’s undoubtedly one of the pioneers of the UK funky scene, as well as a long time supporter of grime, known by many as the former head of leading crew, N.A.S.T.Y, who counted the likes of Kano, Jammer and D Double E among their ranks.
Today he’s at the forefront of the UK funky movement, led by his highly respected residency with Rinse FM where every week he draws on his unrivalled knowledge of the artists, producers and DJs heading-up of one of the most exciting genres to emerge from London’s underground in recent years.
Marcus Nasty has been on Rinse FM for over 4 years now and during his time there he has pushed the sounds of UKfunky and now Worldwide 130 BassMusic in all kinds of positive directions by going out of his way to find talented producers all over britain and (now the world) pushing there music through his show. We believe he has one of the most entertaining shows of its kind with him throwing down the freshest sounds and fast paced mixing he often uses the killer combo of Mc Shantie & Mc Ranking.
Marcus Nasty has recently put together a record lable called We ‘R’ Bass which consists of UKfunky, Bass & House producers such as Pantha, Sunday Roast & Jook 100, Eastwood, Naughty Raver, Formula and Mr Solo. We ‘R’ Bass releases are available on all major download sites!
Marcus Nasty set up nasty fm because throughout his time as someone who finds artists/djs/mcs the only platform he had was his Rinse fm show which is once a week for 2 hours which in reality limits him a lot and when and if he found a dj or mc that he thought was great the most he could do is give them a 30 min mix and a few shouts which is not good enough so he built a platform for anybody he found with the required edge to push themselves and there music from: NASTY FM
