Nick Gross, Betatraxx and Drug Abuse Remix Contest Winners



Nick Gross is a very talented drummer who recently joined the once solo Betatraxx. Funny thing about Nick Gross is that my high school ex-girlfriend introduced his music to me way back in 2006 (when I was in high school as well. I don't bang high school girls anymore, at least intentionally). The reason my 16 year old girlfriend knew this seemingly underground drummer back in 2006 is due to a MTV show called Laguna Beach: The Real OC. Nick's band, Open Air Stereo, featured prominently on this MTV show. Subsequently, "The Real OC" and Open Air Stereo have taken an indefinite hiatus and Nick has gone on to drum for Cali rapper, Thrasher, and work with UK recording artist Lolene. In the last few months however, Nick has gone on to work with LA producer and DJ, Betatraxx. Together they recently released a mixtape which is fucking amazing.
If this amusing anecdote of shitty MTV shows and pop music production has lead you to doubt in any way the previous claim that Nick is a phenomenal drummer, please check out the videos above and the music below. If you can drum as well as Nick, I don't care if you promote yourself through sex tapes with slutty heiresses, you fucking rock. (Shit, now that I think about it that is actually a great way for promoting this blog, a sex tape with Lydia Hearst. I mean our post featuring a picture Monica Bellucci got like 4,000 hits in a day, imagine what that sex tape with a model/heiress would do to increase our fan base.)
This Under The Sheets Remix is fucking unbelievably sick, download now and why not grab the full mix it is taken from below it.
