NazcarNation was a music project founded by Chris Wargo and Craig Robert Smith at Los Angeles in 2008. NazcarNation began working on song ideas and concepts in Wargo's studio apartment, creating a musical blend of hip hop and dubstep from Wargo's influence mixed with the melodic ambient leanings of Smith. Later the group tracked the louder bits with drummer/multi-instrumentalist Mark Balane, completing the framework for their live set. Known in the chillwave movement and with the completion of their debut EP titled "Dynazty" in 2010 NazcarNation crowd-tested their sample heavy grooves to packed venues in Los Angeles such as The Standard in Hollywood, The Viper Room, and SPACE15TWENTY. NazcarNation later became Gangplans.
