Noah, is a Nagoya-based female artist, whose popular works include her winning piece in Cokiyu’s “Your Thorn Remixes”.
SELA., is a 19 years old young producer that hails from California, US, who is known for his excellent production work for Kitty (Kitty Pryde), the 17 years old tumblr-wave rapper.
When Noah and Sela., these 2 talented young artists crossed path at flau label, this impressive split ep was born.
In this brilliant split , Noah constructed her own musical world by infusing the wonderful elements of R&B, Trip-Hop, electronic into the classical music she learned from her formal music education, with feathery voices, beautiful chorus, and charming piano touches painting the backdrop.
On the other side, the young Sela. boldly adopted the approach to deconstruct Hip-Hop/R&B music into simplest loops, and gracefully steering these loops to create his distinctive minimal ambient and imaginative night music.
Welcome to the new world created by these 2 amazingly talented young artists Noah and Sela., a world where construction and deconstruction occurred, a world where mellow downtempo music is tastefully conceived.
"..Infusing elements of R&B, trip hop and charming piano loops, the two have created a meticulously mellow aural universe." - Noisey
"Decidedly curious one...What’s left is skeletal, but mesmeric nonetheless." - The Line Of Best Fit
"Noah’s side is distinctly informed by soft, melting synthetics and an R&B aesthetic. SELA. takes things down a different route, while aiming for the same, ambient-styled purpose…dreamy landscape that ties those artists together is an ever-present here." - This Is Fake DIY
"It’s the small details that really make this split release a winner. Noah knows when to use vocals…Sela’s side is more interested in looping, but his contributions bare similar minute touches" - The JAPAN TIMES
"Light piano riffs add a somber mood to the song while breathy vocals and thudding, syncopated kicks give it a decidedly off-kilter sound" - XLR8R
