A TAV Curator's Pick.

Already receiving Artist-to-Watch accolades from XLR8R and the BBC, remixing Daedelus and Flying Lotus, and winning L.A.'s prestigious Project Blowed beat battle, L.A.'s Nosaj Thing authors the unrelenting next chapter in producer-based records that continue to up the ante. His electronic soundscapes and wild beat tectonics hit the mind and soul as they juxtapose thick, dripping electronics with sultry hip hop undertones and thought provoking ambient space. - Alpha Pup Records

“Chung is clearly also fascinated by darkness and impenetrability, and Drift is filled with nighttime sounds. The brief moments of light, when they penetrate, feel slightly unreal; the woozy major chords of "2222" sound submerged, an impression reinforced by the sucking sounds surrounding them, similar to the noises you hear in your ears as you swim for the surface of a pool. At the two-minute mark in "Light #1" synths streak across the track like shafts of sunlight, and on "Lords", the final track, we're surprised by the late entrance of a rarely heard sound on the LP-- harmonized human voices, relatively untouched by filtering and effects, cooing wordlessly. It's a last dose of cold water to the face on a record full of such moments.” - Pitchfork
