N.E.S . Is Narada el Sol (sanskrit name :Naara =Wisdom+ Da= Giver)
Historically ,Narada was able to travel distant lands in the material and spiritual worlds without restriction,in an effort to discover the culture and welfare of people everywhere ,while simultaneously allowing his personal experience to transform the mundane existance into the exalted ,through the pastimes and features of the Godhead .This way of living gave Narada eternal life ,unlimited knowledge and unfathomed bliss which he speaks through his music ,leading souls to salvation throughout the universe.
N.E.S. Career in music began in basement where he practiced DJ'ing at the age of 14 .Self taught on the 1's and 2's ,he discovered a love for the music ,which led him the path of a producer.

Learning from his brother Rick ,N.E.S. has been rapping since age 6.Together they performed at block parties ;re-enacting Big Daddy Kane dance moves and winning any and every contest possible!
As a D.J, N.E.S.'s first residency was at legendary Chicago spot,Essence of life,which was considered in many circles to be the 'Black Lily' of Chicago.It was in this spot N.E.S. hooked up with UNI crew (Drunken Monkee,Pyro,360 of the jazz ensemble Hypnotic,Kendall J.
