Nosaj Thing - Drift

Drift is the debut full-length album from electronic producer Nosaj Thing, who we told you about late last year. He has received artist-to-watch accolades from XLR8R, remixed Daedelus and Flying Lotus, won Plastic Little/Turntable Lab's remix contest featuring MF Doom, and won LA s prestigious Project Blowed beat battle.

Nosaj (Jason Chung) has shared the stage with the likes of DJ Krush, Z-Trip, Free the Robots, Flying Lotus, and he's a regular crowd pleaser at the clubs in LA. Here is a video from his last show in Austin at the Parish.
"He shares a fascination for hip-hop tempos and electronic production methods with many of his peers, but what sets Nosaj out on his own is the filigree attention to detail paid to his work, combining a level of intricate melodic and harmonic complexity generally associated with UK artists like Aphex, whom Nosaj cites as a major influence."

"The couplet of 'Light 1/Light 2' displays Nosaj at his most synthually psychedelic, crafting crystallized melodics on a par with Dorian Concept over two proggy head-nod riddims that fans of Prefuse 73 will fall head-first into."
