Bigger Things Now: Canadian producer/singer Naszdaddy doesn’t know if they can connect on ‘Obsessed’

As he tries hard not to flex but just can’t quite help it, Naszdaddy wonders why they won’t leave him alone, even though he has made his intentions known on ‘Obsessed‘.

Naszdaddy is a Brockville, Eastern Ontario, Canada-based indie music producer, artist and Berklee College of Music student. He is an artistic soul and loves to break boundaries with his vibration-filled bundle of different-planet sounding music melodies, which is packed full of boundless enthusiasm and smartly-crafted ingenuity.

Naszdaddy specializes in hyperpop, melodic trap, and experimental music. He has played the piano since 2003, has been producing since 2017, and started developing his voice in 2020.” ~ Naszdaddy

He mixes skillfully with a dynamic soundscape which is full of skilled effect for our beating hearts – which has your wondrous body grooving in absolute unison and has your thoughtful mind wondering translucently- deep into the intense story about someone who is madly in love with you, who just doesn’t get it. This is a highly innovative performance from a youthful artist who is clearly looking for something different – which will comprehensively stimulate his mind to stay alive with new layers of total excellence – and always be satisfyingly imaginative to himself and those who know him best.

Obsessed‘ from the highly progressive Canadian indie music producer and singer Naszdaddy, is the familiar story about telling someone super into you that you aren’t interested at all, but they keep on trying no matter what you say. The problem is that you are in love with someone else and know that you won’t connect on a higher level anyway, as you are two rather different souls.

When the heart knows what it wants, nothing else should get in the way of staying faithful to your true love.
