“Elijah has been a huge inspiration to me so when he reached out, I dropped all my other projects and jumped on this. I think what came of it is a beautifully atmospheric concoction of both our unique styles.”Nogymx
A tribute to the calming abilities of the sea.
“Shaped by the Sea” blends gentle strings & keys, mellow drum grooves & soothing foley sounds of waves. Enhanced by warm vocal samples, this piece will soothe your every cell. The artwork is a film photograph by Elijah Nang himself.
“I’ve been watching Nogymx for a while and I think our sound is quite similar so it made sense for me to reach out and work with him, it could be the beginning of something.” shares Elijah Nang.
Elijah Nang is a London-based experimental electronic artist who also describes himself as an audio novelist. In his music, you will find a frequent homage to East Asian culture, and his sound crafts a new niche in the jazz / lofi hop-hop genre, a mixture of electronica with Japanese influences, something he often refers to as japtronica.
