An Angel With No Head
Much more than a DJ
As oversaturated with paint-by-numbers productions as contemporary electronic music may be, Nazariff A.K.A.Rodger Edmonds beautifully blurs the line separating mainstream from obscure. An inventive and capable producer who has helped shape the soundscapes of numerous hip-hop, rock and pop artists painting them with dark overtones, his solo releases exhibit broader dimension than the trap and future bass tracks to which they most closely compare. In addition he has composed score pieces for TV film.
From remixes of songs like The Weeknd’s “Heartless” and So Below’s “Close” to originals like his genre-bending October 2020 single, “Demons,” Edmonds has not only demonstrated a keen ear for sound design subtlety but an advanced sense of melody and arrangement as well. His DJ sets also never disappoint, which has landed the name Nazariff on the bill of such massives as Dreamscape and Nightmare Festival.
As the turning tides of electronic music result in a new wave of fans whom seek out sounds of greater substance, Nazariff’s intelligent yet infectious signature style has struck a chord with more listeners than ever before. Keep an eye out for his name on the flyer for your favorite festival as his discography continues to grow.
