Acclaimed for his unique hybrid of live musicianship and DJ work, as well as his extensive use of guitar, synthesizer riffs and his own vocals, the one and only BadNraD is back and better than ever with the release of his latest EP "Deep End", released courtesy of Last Triumph Records. "Deep End" is a seven-track feast for the ears with a sensual, funky and pulse-pounding array of pop/dance fusion reminiscent of the best music of the late 1980s and early 1990s, all while featuring a contemporary blend of bass music stylings.

His work running the gamut from bright and energetic to dark and intense, BadNraD has become a fixture of the Minneapolis electronic scene. A regular on The Current and KFAI, BadNraD has opened for local musical luminaries such as EOTO, Woody McBride and Darksiderz. BadNraD has rocked the dance floor in the famed First Avenue main room on several epic occasions and was also featured in their Best New Bands showcase. Summer Fest, Bella Music Fest, and MEMF are just some of the Midwest festivals to experience BadNraD at his best... In front of huge crowds and behind huge sound systems.

"Deep End" will be officially released at First Avenue's "BEAT the HEAT" event on Friday, Aug. 12, with BadNraD himself taking over the Mainroom stage at 11:30 p.m. Cover at the 18+ event is $20, with doors opening at 9 p.m.Emotional, vivid and rhythmically intense, "Deep End" will be the ultimate summer tonic for those who like their music sexy, hip and innovative.
