“…Some of the best artists are so damn good because they know how to let their freak flag fly. One person who knows this is longhaired Brooklynite Space Jesus, who specializes in brewing wonderfully strange potions of low-end bass…” – THUMP
“[His] new visual collaboration plays like a post-apocalyptic Internet fueled nightmare and we love it.” – EARMILK
With a reputation for his dynamic live performances, Space Jesus recently completed a national tour supporting Break Science. He’s also been handpicked to support Tipper, Big Gigantic, Zeds Dead, Die Antwoord, Rusko, Shpongle, Infected Mushroom and Feed Me, to name a few. Additionally, he’s been granted prime spots at festivals such as Mysteryland USA, (Bethel Woods, NY,) TomorrowWorld, (Atlanta, GA,) Shambhala, (Salmo, BC,) and 710 Cup (Denver, CO,). In fact, Mysteryland USA chose him as a top Emerging Artist and featured him in their Official Mysteryland USA Aftermovie.
Space Jesus’ next full-length album titled Close Encounters will be released Fall 2015 via Brooklyn-label Smokers Cough. This highly anticipated album, arguably his grittiest, most mind bending work to date, blends heavy hip-hop influences with a distinct psychedelic flare. Close Encounters takes listeners on an intense journey through intergalactic gangster truths and crunchy bass textures. Featuring numerous collaborations with artists from different regions and genres, including producers, rappers and even a beat boxer, its themes explore politicians on drugs, extraterrestrial grandparents, Instagram celebrities and many other topics that are (or at least should be) out of this world.
Jasha’s other projects include Schlang with fellow producer Rob Uslan (Supersillyus) and #$ (Hash Money) with New Jersey rapper and long time friend GDP. These two projects highlight both sides of Jasha’s byzantine brain; Schlang – rooted in depth of multicultural psychedelia, and #$ – hard-hitting future hip-hop.
