Asura Jacket Asura is here.


"An absolutely magical record, really unique and truly immersive..." - Mary Anne Hobbs


"Sublime pulsing electronics and layered bliss... gorgeous music." - Boomkat


"The fact that this is his first record is, in itself, crazy — seriously, York projects a level of comfort and even command in his experimenting." - Dominic Umile

"Los Angeles on fire once more with this sumptuous record from Ryan York... an eclectic work that is genuinely surprising." - Bleep


Now available on 2xLP and Digital formats! The inaugural Non Projects release is the debut multi-genre album by Los Angeles resident Ryan York. An album of pure emotion and evocative powers, Asura plays out like a continuous movie for the mind. Complete with neck snapping beats and snaky synth lines, silent yet absorbing ambient washes, acoustic instrumental prowess and compositional laptop mastery, Asura satisfies the inner ear's and heart's desires with a physical thump, while consistenly bringing the listener back for more. Non Projects stands firmly behind Asura and is incredibly proud to bring you what will undoubtedly be one of the best debut albums of the year. 


Mastered by Daddy Kev at The Echo Chamber (digital) and Simon Davey at The Exchange (vinyl).
