Nosaj Thing
Nosaj Thing
It’s been three years since the release of Nosaj Thing’s highly acclaimed debut album, Drift, 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 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.

Greene's music has a remarkable aptitude for expressing a range of broadcasts – bittersweet melancholia and pure euphoria. Drawn from micro inflections and palettes of gut wrenching-soul – 'You
Can't Deny' operates on a number of levels. Its brick-compressed Detroit-stabs serve to cut through club
systems beneath intricate loops of electronics that interplay with disembodied, anthemic calls. With 'You
Can't Deny', Jacques Greene declares himself back and renewed.
'You Can't Deny' marks the start of a new collaboration between Jacques Greene and designer Hassan
Rahim, alongside his ongoing work with Montreal's foremost creative studio Trusst and director Melissa
Jacques Greene's vocal collaborations include Tinashe, OVO's Majid Jordan and How To Dress Well
alongside deliberately limited remix work and edits for The Weeknd, Drake, Sampha, Shlomo, Autre Ne
Veut and Radiohead, to large scale scoring projects and installations with cult couture designer Rad
Hourani and London's Tate Modern.

Jim-E Stack
Jim-E Stack has come a long way. Born and raised in the culturally rich environs of San Francisco, the now Brooklyn-based artist born James Harmon Stack cut his musical teeth on the drums at a young age. His true love was playing jazz in both his high school band and local groups, but it wasn't until he entered the world of solo production at the tender age of 16 that he found the freedom necessary to write and record how he wanted. During 2008, he eagerly worked on hip-hop beats inspired by DJ Premier and J Dilla, coloring those sketches in Logic with bits of UK grime and Baltimore club sounds à la Blaqstarr and Karizma. Once he started sneaking into clubs in 2009, he uncovered the seeds of what would become the burgeoning producer we now know as Jim-E Stack, a journey which started with a set at SF's renowned 222 Hyde from Fade to Mind boss Kingdom.

After moving from the West Coast to New Orleans, where he enrolled at Loyola University to study music technology and production, Jim-E Stack made his first splash with a bass-loaded version of Nguzunguzu's "Mirage," a well-received remix that eventually landed him his first official release. 2011's Come Between EP was a bright and drum-focused offering that signaled the arrival of a viable production talent whose fresh perspective on club-ready music was lauded by DJs and tastemakers around the world. (BBC Radio 1 host Benji B went so far as to play the entire EP on his program for weeks before and after it was released.) It was an important moment for Stack, though it would also make for a serious obstacle in his creative journey's next step: the debut album.

After moving to New York in summer of 2012, James quickly made friends with Shlohmo and his Wedidit crew, frequented the Lit City Raves at 285 Kent, and started the slow process of writing his first full-length record Tell Me I Belong LP, 10 diverse tracks representing the culmination of their creator's musical experience thus far.
