NAH - Light As Fuck

Mastering, Mixing, 2015, StemRyan SchwabeComment

It probably wouldn’t be right to refer to Light as Fuck as his debut album, but it’s the first release of his to stay 100% true to his uncompromising vision. He says that “everything prior to this album feels like one huge demo,” and upon listening, it’s evident what he means.

This is his tightest sounding project yet, offering a more cohesive narrative that crookedly hammers in all the nails as far as they’ll possibly go. With the exception of a pitch-perfect guest spot from Ho99o9, this album is 100% NAH.

NAH - Difficult

Mastering, 2013Ryan SchwabeComment

On closing number “Pause” Kuhn submerges his feral drumming in so much distortion that at certain times it sounds like waves of feedback have obscured any trace of a beat. The rest of Difficult is, for the most part, far more accessible, and “Neighbours Below” kicks the album off on a particularly high note as Kuhn’s barreling drum patterns—which sound like sped-up boom-bap beats that employ empty trash cans—are reminiscent of Death Grips’ aggro noise-rap.
