NXSE (Nerdcore Straight Edge)
Released online September 2012
Running time: 74:20
Also featuring: Bazuuka Joe, Dorkin T. Wizzard, King Pheenix, Dynamo Dash, dVice, Klopfenpop, NES-T, MadHatter, Anita De Freitas, Epic-1, Random, Deafinition, The Ranger, Diabeats, Mastadon Da Masta Don, Whiskey Hotel, and StarF.
With more than a year's worth of effort put into it, Maros' debut (beyond) full-length album is finally here!
One of Scrub Club's most versatile artists, you can check out an hour and 20 minutes worth of tracks and be amazed at all the different styles and emotions he can weave together.
A true collaborator's dream project, Maros recorded a ton of vocals and made a good chunk of the beats, but he also called in a flock of other talented musicians to help produce and record verses for some of the songs as well. The final product is jam packed with awesome audio that people might not usually expect to come from a first release.
All of our music here at Scrub Club is free. However, if you enjoyed this release and would like to support our label, please make any size of donation to help all of our artists get new merch and promo items, book bigger shows, and get better equipment. Much love to you all!

ALBUM THANKS FROM MAROS
First and foremost, I gotta thank God. Without whom I doubt I'd still be alive. Though the same level, I've got to thank my family and closest friends!
Mom, The way you raised me helped me to be the person that I am. I wouldn't have it any other way. Your love for music is what got me into my love for music. Without you, I'd don't know who I would be. Your contribution to this album also helped to shape it for what it is.
Thank you, Dad. Your tough lessons were always hard to accept, but eventually I realized that if I really wanted to do something, I just had to go ahead and do it.
Poppy, thanks for being a cool bro, even though you can be annoying. I'll never forget you peeing in my Sega Saturn!
Dominique, even for the cranky sister you are, you were always supportive.
Hattie, for being an understanding wife, and allowing me to spend so much time working on music.
Aidynn for being an amazing gift and ray of eternal brightness to my world.
My best friends Stevan W., Jenn B., Rory A., David A., Nick M., Cammie T. - Thanks for always being around, and even when I annoyed you with loops of listening to my music, you always showed support. Extra shouts to Jenn B For the amazing album cover and to Stevan W. For the equipment I needed to play my first show.
Special Thanks goes out to:
Deafinition, for reaching out to me early on and helping me get better.
Bazuuka Joe, for being such a cool dude and awesome artist.
