Wuhn is the debut release from Dropping Gems family member DJAO, aka Alex Osuch. The tracks appearing on Wuhn represent some of the most characteristic sounds found in his repertoire: organic rhythms, rolling sub-bass, and the enveloping presence of human voices. It attempts to describe, from beginning to end, a journey through a kaleidoscopic array of natural environments, each with their own tone, tempo, topography and synesthetic color scheme. The humid grittiness of “Underbrush” bursts apart to reveal the vast openness of “Through The Fields,” which climbs in elevation until the listener is deposited into the fertile rarefication of “Taigamoss.” From these heights the listener is transported, during the night, to the depths of “Moon Sun Ravine,” and after a prolonged psychedelic march he or she stumbles into sunrise and finally into the secluded oasis of “Green Lake.” By the EP’s end, attentive listeners may be surprised to find tree leaves lining their pockets, or creek pebbles in their shoes. The EP also represents the immense amount of loving support that Alex has received since beginning to make music in earnest, and exists to both reflect and transmit that feeling in return to his community and the world at large.


released September 6, 2011

All songs written and recorded by DJAO over the past year in Seattle, WA. Through The Fields incorporates elements from an instrumental of 'Ecstasy & Speed' written by Jin Gilbert. Moon Sun Ravine features Zuri Biringer on guitar.
