☆ NOSAJ THING (Live / US) 'Parallels' Album Tour ☆
+ Supported by:
✨ Lonelyspeck (Live)
✨ Champion The Boy (Live)
✨ Groundfloor Radio DJ's
'Parallels' compellingly elusive, uncategorisable sonics developed out of what he terms a personal and musical “identity crisis". He goes on to say "my previous records reflected the anxiety of living inside my own imagination,” Chung explains. “For 'Parallels', I went outside of that: it’s all about trying new things, creating a new world".
EPHEMERAL LIVE BEATS; Nosaj Thing again making gorgeous waves in the electronic realm with this album, a seamless blend between ethereal American roots and fresh progressive directions with tracks like 'All Points Back To U' akin to the likes of minimal and ambient works across the pond. Dusky's 'Outer' comes to mind. A real exploration of ideas and experiences which need not conform to the restriction of genre. Come and explore. Catch Marcello marshaling between the talent.
"Paradise Loft Records is back once again with a new addition in our series of pop-up record fairs. On offer will be a number of new and world record store day releases as well as over 1000 new 12" and LP stock direct from NYC.
