Nosaj Thing electrifies Webster Hall

Experimental hip-hop producer Jason Chung, known as Nosaj Thing, played a dynamic set at Webster Hall on Friday, January 18. With ghost-like movements and a concentrated demeanor, he smoothly tied soft tracks like Aquarium” and “Eclipse/Blue” with the darker sounds of “1685/Bach” and Fog” from his album “Drift.” The thick, gauzy lines and glitched beats of his songs catered well to both the dancers and swaying listeners crowding the venue.

Nosaj Thing has come a long way since since his debut in 2004. Inspired at a young age, Chung experimented with a variety of electronic music in Los Angeles before self-releasing his “View/Octopus” EP in 2006. His discography now includes two full-length albums, and will further expand with the release of his new album “Home” on January 22.  Nosaj Thing has also crafted a variety of beats provided for artists like Kid Cudi and Kendrick Lamar. Hearing Nosaj Thing live makes it clear that his passion and breathtaking works will carry him even further.
