DJ Lauden

  • Ritual Barbers 117 South Pinckney Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

A longtime Madisonian DJ fixture and agile selector, Lauden Nute has been spinning around the isthmus for several years—most notably as one half of the TV Dinner duo with fellow Madisonian Carl Castle. Sometimes Nute pushes toward full-on dancefloor functionality, as he jumps from the grittier end of vintage house music to electro to Detroit ghettotech, but he can also be heard blasting deep, old-school R&B and freestyle cuts, bizarro synth pop, and a wealth of underground rap jams from the 1980s to present. He spins an extended evening set here at Ritual Barbers, a downtown spot that we're excited to see has recently installed a new sound system and hosted more local DJs of late. (Full disclosure: Nute also frequently designs posters for Tone Madison events.) —Joel Shanahan
