Recording under the name Jega for a growing number of labels, Nathan’s well-composed hybrids of new wave, electro, ambient, and, more recently, drum’n’bass are widely lauded in the international experimental electronic underground; his releases for noted Manchester-based, Autechre-affiliated label Skam are among the label’s best.
Nathan got his start after close friend Mike Paradinas (aka u-Ziq, who also owns the Planet Mu label) urged him to get a few pieces of gear and begin making tracks. The results of that initial push were released by Skam in 1996 as the Jega EP, which was followed in mid-1997 by an additional self-titled 12-inch (sometimes referred to as the “Card Hore” EP).
Nathan has also released tracks through Skam/Musik Aus Strom co-project, Mask, and provided a remix for MAS co-owner Michael Fakesch’s “Demon 2” EP. The full-length release Spectrum appeared on Paradinas’ Planet Mu in 1998, followed by an American contract with Matador. Two years later, Nathan returned with Geometry.
