In the five years since his last full length, Parallels, Jason W. Chung has proceeded through family health-scares and house break-ins: those tectonic shifts that help define our character. Throughout the recording, Jason referred to a photo he’d acquired the rights to, from fabled hip hop photographer Eddie Otchere. The image depicted an open road at dusk: somewhere remote, high in the West Highlands of Scotland. The image possesses an embodied, cinematic quality, begging the viewer to continue down the path we can’t foresee. Consequently, Jason trucked forward gathering friends and likeminded artists across emerging Hip Hop, Jazz, Soul and the Avant-Garde, patiently sculpting a record that encourages us to keep going.
Nosaj Thing, rose from noise and punk shows at DIY venue The Smell. The artist has innovated with a live experiences conceived with Tokyo-based AV savant Daito Manabe. Chung’s music carries such visceral humanity it feels like a disservice to refer to the ‘mood’ which pervades his records. But it’s exactly that distinct mood that has made Nosaj Thing such a cult artist across his 16-year-deep discography. “We Are (우리는)” is the first single from a record that sees Chung’s scope as composer, producer and arranger exceed expectations.
