Dominic Umile said of Nosaj Thing in a Now Hear This profile last year, “Nosaj Thing’s music is mysterious and provocative, bringing a rumbling intensity and highly individual style to both remixes and his own work.” Alan Ranta heaped on the praise, calling 2009’s Drift “a fabulous introduction to a burgeoning beat-making talent, one of the finest since edIT’s Crying Over Pros For No Reason”.
