It’s been a while since Drift Remixed came out, but eventually Nosaj Thing is paying back for the remix he got by Jon Hopkins. The original is taken from Jon’s forthcoming album Immunity on Domino and it will be accompanied by several other remixes from the likes of Happa or Luke Abbott.
In other Nosaj Things news, you can now download his collaboration with Chance the Rapper, which was part of Yours Truly’s Songs From Scratch feature.
It’s been three years since his last album Drift came out, but to me it feels much longer. The wait is almost over, following a first teaser, Jason Chung’s second album as Nosaj Thing will be out end of January. Titled Home, the record will be out through Los Angeles-based label Innovative Leisure and it features vocal collaborations with Kazu Makino and Toro y Moi. Here’s a look at the full tracklist.01. Home
02. Eclipse/Blue feat. Kazu Makino
09. Try (feat. Toro y Moi)
10. Phase III
11. Light 3
You can listen to snippets of the record on the Bleep website, where you can also pre-order a copy on LP, CD and several download formats. The release date for the former two is January 21st, the downloads will be available a day earlier.
Turns out that teaser from some weeks back didn’t have much to do with the final version of the new Nosaj Thing video. You might not even want to call it a music video, it certainly feels more like the backdrop for a dance performance. But it’s a nice one, don’t you think? It’s the work of Daito Manabe, Japanese multimedia artist and best known for electric stimulus experiments, or more recently the video for FaltyDL’s Straight & Arrow.
For more insights on the making of this video and an interview with the artist, check out The Creators Project. As for the music, the track featuring Kazu Makino on vocals is already available on 10-inch and digital through Innovative Leisure.
Following that video teaser from earlier this month, Nosaj Thing has posted the full version of his new track Eclipse/Blue. The single featuring Blonde Redhead singer Kazu Makino on vocals will be out on October 2 through Innovative Leisure. Amazon has both, the 10-inch record and the digital release, for pre-order.
The second Nosaj Thing album goes by the name of Home and should be out early next year!
October 9, 2012 Daedelus gave the track his own twist, you can listen to it on his SoundCloud.
If you’re a regular visitor to this site, you’ve probably seen a handful of videos of Nosaj Thing‘s live visuals.
This one was recorded at last year’s Festival de Arte Digital in Belo Horizonte and I think it’s the first I’ve seen in which Jason talks a bit about the visuals.
For more footage of Nosaj Thing shows, check out the links below this post!
Visual artist Romain Tardy, better known as Aalto of AntiVJ, was responsible for the stage design and projections for Nosaj Thing‘s show at Prague’s Lunchmeat.
Here’s a short making-of including footage from the night:

Following Los Angeles, Amsterdam, São Paulo and probably many more, we bring you some live footage of Nosaj Thing recorded at Geneva’s Mapping Festival.
I can never get tired watching these, I hope you feel the same way too!
Some more of these Nosaj Thing videos we’re posting regularly, but hey – we love that guy! This time he’s been interviewed by the manufacturer of an energy drink, who already brought us videos featuring Daedelus, Diplo and some other cats.
These are only the videos I liked best, but you can find the rest of the series on YouTube.

Jan 10, 2011 Alpha Pup is now giving away the remix for free!
For the last 6 months (or so), Alpha Pup has been teasing us with a simple image on their website. Its only message was the announcement of Nosaj Thing’s album Drift Remixed – no date or other details attached.
That is until now, as the remix album will be out all of a sudden next week! Among the remixers are usual suspects such as Teebs, Daedelus, Dorian Concept or Take .
Here’s a look at the full track-list:01. Quest (Low Limit Remix)

04. Caves (Teebs Remix)

And here’s another one, this time it’s LA’s Take on remix duties.
You know how much we loved the original Drift album, so if the remixes are half as good, you know you’re gonna need that record!
Nosaj Thing’s Drift Remixed is out on November 2nd, 2010!
Another live video of Nosaj Thing, this time performing at São Paulo’s Museu da Imagem e do Som (MIS) earlier this month.
The museum has posted another video on their website, more of those live visuals can be found here.
If you haven’t had the chance to see Nosaj Thing live and you’re living in the U.S., make sure to catch him on his November Tour with Toro Y Moi and Jogger!
A long time has passed since the release of his album Drift, but Los Angeles’ Nosaj Thing has just uploaded what appears to be the first new track since then.
Unfortunately, the Alpha Pup man did not specify what his plans with this track are. Also, there are still no details on the supposedly upcoming remix album.
I wrote about another test shoot for Nosaj Thing before, so I thought I do it again.
This one was made by Simon Brown, but he gave no details on the video’s purpose. However, as a fan of Nosaj Thing and interesting videos, I thought I share this with you.
Update Nosaj Thing has also announced that he’ll be touring through Brazil this month!
Taken from his -already classic- debut album Drift, Swiss director Roland von Tessin made this new video for the Nosaj Thing‘s track “Coat of Arms.”
I wish I had more to tell. It still seems, however, there is a Drift Remixed album on the horizon (and there’s still no release date.)
