    DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.
