It’s been three years since the release of Nosaj Thing’s highly acclaimed debut album, Drift (Alpha Pup), which topped countless Best Of Year Lists, but 2013 will mark a new chapter for the 27-year-old producer, musician and DJ from Los Angeles. With a new album, label and imprint (Timetable) for Innovative Leisure, Home marks the first time Nosaj has incorporated guest vocalists. Having remixed and worked with the likes of The XX, Flying Lotus, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Beck & Kendrick Lamar, it was time to incorporate a few collaborations of his own with Toro y Moi and Kazu Makino (Blonde Redhead) providing ethereal vocals for two of the tracks on Home. The rest of the album is rounded with Nosaj’s signature cinematic soundscapes that explore the space from where Drift left off.
After recently sharing lead single “Eclipse/Blue feat. Kazu Makino (Blonde Redhead),” our first taste from Home, Nosaj is back today to share the song’s video, created in conjunction with The Creators Project and Tokyo-based artist and programmer Daito Manabe. The video, available below, sees Daito’s exquisite, minimal projections perfectly complementing the song’s effortless beauty. Head directly to The Creators Project site to learn more about Daito and Nosaj Thing.
