I don't know if it's the word 'nosaj' that is bothering me. Too close to the word 'nose' to accurately represent the chilling and atmospheric electronica produced by Jason Chung. Previously I've ignored everything he's done. And I thought he was a rapper but he's not. And I had no idea he made such lovely music. Music described by the always incisive Pitchfork as 'a pleasant listen'. They are right though - it is.
He creates excellent beats and atmospherics over which he occasionally adds people to lay vocals over. It's lo-end slow. With nods to Massive Attack's slow moving slide or Actress's unique take on electronics it blends easi-listen coffee table tronics with something dark from the underground creating churns of innovative sound that is always palatable yet never bland.
I feel when listening to it I'm in a darker place....the kind of tunnel where you create soft shoe electronica and then chop it uniquely with scissors. Never being of one particular genre but stabbing wildly at several then bringing together to soothe and ask questions of the listener.
Actually lovely, you need to hear this.
