Basement Approved artists Nonzus Magnus shares his introspective EP 'Blank Canvas'

Reintroducing Nonzus Magnus 

Following an action packed 2019, Nonzus ended the year with the release of the memorable ‘Fight Club’ followed by his valentine single ‘For Da Gang’ earlier this year. The North Dubliner returns with an Introspective 4 track EP titled ‘Blank Canvas’, experimental yet eclectic project inspired by collection of sounds stemming from Baile Funk to Hip Hop to Alt Rock meshed with modern glitchy production and electronic breakdowns. With the main focus of the project being Nonzus, we hear his distinctive deep voice narrate stories and paint us vivid imagery taking us on a voyage.

Nonzus explained “The EP is me embarking on a new journey. In my health and fitness, my business and education, my friendships and love life. Reflecting and embracing my past but transitioning into a newly refined state, a more “true to self” state and character. From the area I’m from, the issues I’ve battled and come to terms with, the love I’ve lost or found and all the little intricacies in between. This project is me embracing my evolution and stepping forward in a better direction. In my life and my art. The project is to be looked at or taken in as a whole. Somewhat of a reintroduction.”

He added “My most distinctive feature would have to be my voice. For as long as I can remember people have always spoken about how my voice is unique or “could melt butter”. From friends and regular listeners to studio professionals. I guess there’s something about how I speak that resonates with people. I don’t consider myself to have an image. I feel I’m so “Weird” or “Unique” that I’m normal. I really enjoy film and art. Things of that nature that transport you to another place, dimension, universe or mind state so I aim to create that with my art. An outlet, an escape.”
