Boomkat Product Review:
LA beat dude Jason Chung breaches new dimensions in his 3rd album as Nosaj Thing. Alongside Shlohmo, FlyLo and the whole Low End Theory lot, he's been partly responsible for switching up the instrumental hip hop game in recent years, and look set to leave others for dust with the filigree touch of 'Fated' for Innovative Leisure. Throwing his collabo net far and wide, he brings everyone from avant-garde sound designer Katie Gately to Chance the Rapper and Maceo Haymes on board for a woozily surreal beat suite efficiently running 15 tunes in just over 33 minutes. In the best way it feels twice as long, partly due it's quasi-speed time-keeping; partly due to his somnambulant atmosphere - creating a space where grids melt away and beats teeter between absent, abstract and triple-time, only to evaporate back into the ether. Like Shlohmo's recent 'Dark Red', there's a melancholic seam running right thru the album. But, where Shlohmo goes gothic, Nosaj tends to a sort of rainy day of ambience, best felt in the BoC-like wheeze of 'Varius' or sulky, underwater feel of 'Phase IV', and the wistful tang of 'Moon', whilst the appearance of Katie Gately's processed coos in '2K' seals the shoegaze appeal to close.
