DJ Natural Nate!! “BYBB Built on respect and unity”!

The-Lost-Art.com Presents: DJ Natural Nate!! “BYBB Built on Respect and Unity”!

DJ NATURAL NATE Grew up with the influences of Break Dance. At an early age he would go to the skating rinks not to skate but to learn and watch the master craftsmen of the art of street dancing. It’s not hard to know who Natural was interested in music wise. Michael Jackson, Egyptian Lover, Debonaire and Rockwell are just a few names out of the 1000’s of inspirations! Natural had always loved ALL music classifications such as Classic Rock {Led Zepplin, Iron Maiden, Ozzy } to Oldies.  In the early 90’s Natural had been influence to check the underground scene out. Though there really was no real breaks going on at the time but, he found this scene to be intriguing. It was a culture based around respect and unity for one and another through the power of music. Throughout the years, Natural had developed some serious rug cutting skills, and banned with many crews to rock these events! Natural really had no intentions on ever being a DJ! It came to a point in late 95 that he decided it was time to do something different. Not for himself, but for the breakers.

 After paying $40-$100 to go out to a show where you never heard breaks was getting old for the dancers! At that time, you paid $16-$20 for a CD that had maybe 1-3 tracks that you would actually like. It became clear for Natural to stop waisting the money on shows and CDs and Buy wax instead. He decided to get some turntables to make mixes for himself and his friends craving breaks. His dance crew was upset, because they knew the dedication that was soon to set in. They always told him he had better not stop dancing!!!

Shouts to Mike Underwood / Tony / Mike-E / Will / Chris / Andy / Donnie / Heather / Chad / [ Special shouts* Axis night Club Wilmington N.C, and many other great friends in NC.  NC has the Boom Booms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

   Becoming a DJ would prove to be the best decision of his life. He had met a really good friend named G-Ron from NY, that gave him the best advice on what a DJ should do and be! It did not take long {One Month} before he got his first gig in Wilmington, NC. From there, he decided to move back to Colorado to help take a movement of breaks back to the scene. Having so many great friends that were true dancers kept the inspiration going.  Huge dance influences in Colorado were Mike Reynolds, Jay Reynolds and Bruce Davis, along with many others!

Bruise Your Body Breaks  has been around since 1998. The name Bruise Your Body Breaks came about when Natural Nate was spinning at a party. After his set, a guy came up to him and showed him a bruise that was on the left side of his back.

 He stated that “the bass was hitting so hard that it bruised his body”. So as stated, “If the dancing does not bruise your body the music will!” In 2010… BYBB Started new chapter with THE-LOST-ART.COM. Stronger… Faster.. Smarter.. and from Mars!                               *Other BYBB Members: Mike Devious / Tray peel / Ghost { Ian }

 In 2001, Natural was presented an opportunity with working with one of the biggest labels in the world. He went through massive amounts of paper work and was looking forward to the future. He received a phone call by his manager at the time that said he had some bad news. After all of the demos that was sent in, they had made a decision that his mixing was computer generated. This crushed Naturals dreams and he was ready to quit. Few years had past, and Natural was presented with an opportunity of doing Internet radio. He did not respond back right away. He knew the person that had asked him to do this venture would not hold up their end and was not sure if he wanted the commitment.

  He stared at over 7,000 of his records, thinking it would be cool to preserve them by mixing them live and putting them away forever once the shows were done. BYBB debuted on Breaks FM early 2006, humble to be there. They soon moved over to Nubreaks.com, and helped with MANY ground breaking ideas and techniques such as the Bend scratch or Taco scratch and the Airplane Pitch control along with the push/block/Square mix.  

 Bruise Your Body Breaks was not only the FIRST to start Live video, but also to make it mandatory to prove the mixing by using live Internet video! The VERY FIRST SHOW BYBB did, they used a camcorder to record insuring they would be able to prove their mixes. Early 2006 a friend came into the station and asked ” Why is nobody in the world using live video for their stations?” It was simple for BYBB to understand the importance of this massive tool and soon started working on the first REAL Internet show to ever use Live video to prove the mix! This changed the way everyone looks at Internet radio to this day!

 Bruise Your Body Breaks was nominated in 2008 -2011 for Best Radio show. Also, in 2010, Natural sets a world record with  http://recordsetter.com/  using Rane’s Serato Scratch as the fastest mix DJ at 133 BPMs. { Beats per minute }  http://recordsetter.com/world-record/133-BPM-Vinyl-Mixes-Hour  This meant the world to Natural, due to the fact he wanted people to get excited about mixing again.  It was also a way to show respect to a few of the producers that believed in his crazy idea.  Last but least, BREAKS WERE USED!  This world record was to inspire people to use their talents for their dreams!  In late 2010, Natural and a group of great friends came together to form a new idea for Internet radio. www.the-lost-art.com was created to teach others the arts of mixing by highlighting the amazing artists that make this music we call Breaks/Electro along with all of the other amazing genre’s. Music has the power to teach people the true meaning of life.  Respect and honor are the most important things to being apart of this growing station.

2008-12, Bruise Your Body Breaks was Nominated for best in radio and 2010-12  best in breaks label along with Natural taking a spot with the top 50 best breaks djs in the world {2011} with http://www.breakspoll.com/ {#43 } This was one of his greatest honors to be achived in the fact the people are the ones that voted. Natural also walked away with a Nomination for Best E.P. with Natural Nate and Jiggabots “ Robot Pieces” Natural has produced many tracks that are all written by hand. Every beat and synth you hear is all done by real time recording off of a Roland Fantom X6. He really does not consider himself to be a producer at all. The best way described is: Its like doodling on the phone. Some good. Some Bad. In 2010, Natural released his first major attempt at writing a full on story with his production called { Legend }. This took about a year to produce and was done live on Nubreaks.com.

  He used Mixing and a Keyboard to create a movie like mix for all to enjoy weather it be a dancer or just a listener. It was the first time anyone had tried to make a 5 Part movie remix to make one side of the goblins view. All 21 tracks are intended for the Dj to use from start to finish with tools inside the songs to create this journey. Natural had never had any training nor ideas from others. This was his choice because he really wanted to learn everything he could without being tainted by others thoughts.  Nate has always been a sucker for a remix.  You can check his tracks out on Soundcloud and Reverbnation!

   Natural in 2012 walked away with a spot on The DJ List bouncing from as low as 22 for best in breaks DJ’s. This was a very humbling experience, and Natural Nate looks forward to upholding these titles in the future! 

  Nate’s main loves in life are his Family, Jenna, Pets and Music.  He is always here for the underdog and has never turned a single person away in his life without reason. He looks forward to passing the torch to many deserving DJ/Producers with in The-Lost-art. He is very proud of the team and people that support this station and the preservation of the pitch with their souls!  We cannot thank all the listeners and people in this culture enough for all the hard work and support they have given. We as Bruise your Body Breaks and The-Lost-Art will always be here to serve as major support to the public and music.  We will always be looking for the future! Many things still to come out of this journey. Buckle your bass belts! Its going to get a bit bumpy! Catch BYBB Colorado Every Thursdays 10pm-2am Eastern on www.the-lost-art.com
