It’s been six years since Nosaj Thing, the producer born Jason Chung, appeared among the vanguard of Low End Theory-affiliated producers from Los Angeles.

His debut LP 'Drift', a sleek & futuristic record shot through with a sense of melancholy, was hailed as a landmark record for the “beat scene”, with its focus on mood, texture & tone as much as on beats. If 'Drift' was an impressive full-length debut, then 'Home', its 2013 follow-up, consolidated that potential. Now, ‘Fated’ is the sound of an artist whose sound has had time to mature. By stripping away anything he didn’t deem strictly necessary, Chung harnesses a sound notable for its directness & emotional potency. Guest appearances are rare, save for vocals from Chicago rap phenomenon Chance The Rapper on ‘Cold Stares’, his unusually grave cadence deepening the paranoia of the already tense track, & Whoarei on ‘Don’t Mind Me’. for fans of shlohmo, lapalux or gold panda.
