If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live inside the head of Optimus Prime, then look no further, Nej!las has the answers you’ve been looking for. Her latest release, ‘Washout’, is a face first journey through an electronic world that doesn’t relent, leading you down an auditory rabbit hole of futuristic landscapes and imagined tomorrows. It’s dark, it’s hard and it seems nothing can get in its way.
What makes ‘Washout’ special however is it’s eclectic collection of influences. Echoes of Kavinsky mingle with Boards and Canada and Flying Lotus to create something that is truly unique, and many of it’s more intricate details are subtle yet masterfully placed. There is a clear love of craft, and a painstaking attention to detail here that is refreshing to see from a track in this genre.
It doesn’t just stop at music however as Nej!las is also the founder of a charity that has so far helped raise $2.5 million in aid to help countries across the middle east. She works hard to try and make the world a better place both through her music, and through her work on the ground,in this day and age, this really is something special.
