DJ / Press Quotes
"L.A.-based producer Nosaj Thing pits gritty electronics against sultry hip-hop undertones–and the two worlds meet with a surprising smoothness. This is one producer worth keeping an eye on." -- XLR8R
"Bred in the progressively vibrant L.A. production terror dome. Nosaj creates chilling ambiance through moody, chest rattling beats. His live sets are buttery streams of audio bliss, sparking the nodding of heads. A conqueror of beat battles and epic shows all across L.A., Nosaj Thing is the new generation of prognostic producer and beastly freestyle beat conductor... Enjoy!" -- URB (added: 2010-07-22 12:36:17 )
