[Nosaj Thing a.k.a. Jason Chung] We have reverently lent our ears to almost every track bearing this young LA-based producer's moniker since he debuted his notorious classic Drift LP via Alpha Pup in 2009. Following up his recent Home LP release via Innovative Leisure , Chung has put together this remix of Jon Hopkin's ambient opus– "Open Eye Signal" . The Open Eye Signal (Remixes) EP is out now via Domino with Nosaj Thing's rework [...]
In a timely fashion, Nosaj Thing and Chance the Rapper have premiered their collaboration for Songs from Scratch , “Paranoia,” just hours after Yours Truly released a series of behind the scenes clips. Admittedly, Nosaj Thing is relatively selective when it comes to asking vocalists to perform on his tracks- Kendrick Lamar is the only other emcee that he has collaborated with. “Paranoia” is the result of a single nights work in Los Angeles' Ironworx Studio. alh [...]
If you downloaded Acid Rap last week, you may recognize this collaboration from Nosaj Thing and Chance The Rapper . Hidden as a secret track on the mixtape (right after " Pusha Man "), "Paranoia" is just the latest contribution to the " Songs From Scratch " series made possible by YoursTruly and Adidas Originals . Like previous editions of the series, this pairing may seem odd at first, but as soon as you press play you understand the genius behind the choice. Chance sounds right at [...]
Unless you're living the Patrick Star life, living under a rock snoozing away as Chance The Rapper take over every hipster, hypebeast, and hip-hop head Itunes, you've indulged in the Acid Rap album at least once. Well, you might have noticed a change in tune after Pushaman's second verse, the song that emerges after an annoying pause is called Paranoia . Produced by diverse genre producer Nosaj Thing , you get a behind the scenes look at the creation of the favorable tune. I've found it astounding that Chance confess to recording at least 40 [...]
Nosaj Thing x Chance The Rapper - Paranoia Previously featured as the secret track on #AcidRap, ‘Paranoia’ is Nosaj Thing and Chance The Rapper’s contribution to the Yours Truly and Adidas Originals Songs from Scratch series.
New hype in hiphopland must be Chance The Rapper. Dominating the blogosphere with his "Acid Rap" tape (which you can download here for free), he now also dominated our stereo today (although that was actually the new vampire weekend record) with this Nosaj Thing collab. Melancholic and crispy beats combined with the sweet raps of Chance The Rapper. Cool.
If you haven't got your tickets for this Thursday's Earnest Endeavours yet, then I'd recommend hopping over to Resident Advisor to pick them up now. EE team up with Black Atlantic... [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]]

Natasha Kmeto LFTF Mix “Detroit, New York, LA, London, Ibiza, and Berlin all loom large in the world of dance music—but Portland, OR has managed to hold its own. The city gave us Philip Sherburne, the high priest of electronic music writing, and has recently fostered a vibrant community of dance music visionaries, from the lo-fi house throwbacks leaking out of the Ecstasy Collective to the swirling indie bass jams offered up by the Dropping Gems crew. The latter group has been gearing up to release a new EP from Natasha Kmeto, a Portland-based singer/songwriter and [...]
Internal Sun - MindCoat Internal Sun is the audiovisual project of Antwerp based duo Andrew ‘Chi’ Claes & VJ Natché. The two producers pride themselves on exploring the realms of cymatics - the study of visible sound and vibration – and delivering a highly improvised take on the intricate live acts of such pioneers as Nosaj Thing, Amon Tobin, and Flying Lotus. MindCoat is the debut track from their upcoming self-titled EP. The release is due out on March 11 and you can preview it [...]

FADER Mix: Ryan Hemsworth “Ottawa, Ontario’s—and maybe North America’s—fastest rising remixer, Ryan Hemsworth, recorded his FADER mix between tours of Europe and the US . “It’s kind of a sad mix,” he said, explaining, “I had post-Paris depression.” Eschewing the frenetic, wide-grinning pace of previous work, Hemsworth lets these songs—seemingly taken from the goldmine pile of CDs one finds in their teenage bedroom after a long time away—stretch and breathe. “I’m trying to be a little more patient,” he says. A download and tracklist are below; pay close attention to the surprisingly sexy Broken Social [...]
After his universally accepted genius work on Drift, LA based downtempo producer Nosaj Thing is back at it with Home. I'm a bit late on this review, but the album is just so powerful I couldn't bear not to report my thoughts to anybody willing to listen. Home feels exactly how it's titled. Each track is meticulously crafted and engineered to make you feel comfortable and cozy in your own skin. I feel that the album title is less a reference to a home in a physical sense, but more in a psychologic, personal [...]
Nosaj Thing: Home - You press play and become surround by eerie textures, followed by what feels like a standard hip-hop beat- but no, as you venture on you discover this music is far more intelligent than that. The enigmatic feelings are draped over your shoulders in a way that makes you curious and unsure of who’s behind it all. There’s a sense of mystery that emanates from the unpredictable forms, pulling you deeper into a new place you’ve never seen before; a dark tunnel with no end in sight. And you venture on... It’s [...]
Nosaj Thing's sophomore album still has the soft, quaint sounds fans have enjoyed previously from California producer Jason Chung, but with a serious decline in the hip hop vibes that radiated so boldly off of 20092s Drift . WATCH THE REVIEW
LA based dj/producer Nosaj Thing combines efforts with Toro y Moi on this dope ethereal track entitled “Try”. It’s atmospheric, bouncy and gorgeous. Enjoy.

As you might expect from a guy who named his album Home, Jason Chung's (aka Nosaj Thing) new record is deeply and immovably quiet. This kind of quiet has little to do with volume; after all, you don't make songs for Kid Cudi and Kendrick Lamar unless you can put some mustard on the beat. The quiet at the heart of Nosaj's music is in its energy. Home is focused, simple, and gorgeous. The video for Home"s first single - insofar as a mainly-instrumental electronic album can have a single - was released in late November and features a [...]
