Inspired by an eclectic upbringing in Reunion Island, producer, and multi-instrumentalist NASAYA is a versatile electronic crossover artist. At the heels of his recent single “CIEL,” NASAYA returns to Foreign Family Collective with his new single “RUMMELSBURG” in tandem with the announcement of his new EP ‘RÊVES.’
Berklee College Of Music graduate and multi-hyphenate musician and producer NASAYA brings a refreshing perspective to the electronic music landscape. Born and raised by the way of Reunion Island – a French island in the Indian Ocean – NASAYA grew up speaking French and Creole splitting his time between surfing island waves and drawing inspiration from classic rock icons like Led Zeppelin and Nirvana. At 12 years old, NASAYA picked up the guitar and hasn’t put it down since. Inspired by the breeze and easy-going nature of his homeland, NASAYA’s signature style borrows from jazz, experimental dance music, hip-hop, pop, and classic rock.
With releases like “PATTERNS” featuring Sara Diamond and “TEMPO” with MARO spanning labels like Majestic Casual, Concord Records, and ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective, NASAYA’s lush sound is home to some of music’s most prominent record labels. His captivating musical prowess has been lauded by media heavyweights like Pigeons & Planes, Indie Mixtape, Billboard, Ones to Watch, SPIN, NOCTIS Magazine, Elton John’s Rocket Hour radio show, BBC Radio 1, Triple J, and many more. In addition to a laundry list of press accolades, NASAYA has landed sync deals with Patagonia, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix, American Eagle, and Mercedes. Along the way, he produced for artist like UMI, Fiji Blue, and Royal & The Serpent.
At the heels of his collaborative PIRLAMPO EP with MARO, a tour as direct support for Ford’s The Color of Nothing tour, and his recent single “CIEL,” NASAYA returns with his technically-intricate single “RUMMELSBURG.” A departure from the pop-centric sound he orchestrated on PIRLAMPO, “RUMMELSBURG” is an experimental electronic treat marked by nimble breakbeats, chopped vocal samples, and complex polyrhythms designed for sophisticated dancefloors. A mathematical composition with an accessible edge, “RUMMELSBURG” is the second single taken from his impending RÊVES EP and arrives just ahead of his upcoming tour as support for ODESZA on their Last Goodbye tour.
