Los Angeles-based producer gnash (born Garrett Charles Nash) combines the emotional vulnerability of Bright Eyes with the sounds of laptop alt-R&B similar to the Weeknd's early releases. Gnash got his start as a DJ and then as one part of the duo Gemineyes with Harry Hudson. In 2014, his reimagining of the O.T. Genasis track "CoCo" garnered attention from blogs, which led to a string of digital singles released in 2015. His debut EP, U, was released in March of the same year. A mellow, laid-back affair, U employed gnash's rapping over woozy atmospherics, bringing to mind Drake and Troye Sivan. At the end of the year, me arrived. One year after his debut release, he issued his third EP, the seven-song us. Gnash described the emotive, downtempo us as his personal sonic journey through life's ups and downs -- breakups, self-discovery, searching for new experiences -- ultimately leading to loving one's self. Lead single "i hate u, i love u" featured a duet with Olivia O'Brien. A full roster of guest collaborators appeared on the EP, such as Compton rapper Buddy, Goody Grace, Mark Johns, Liphemra, Wrenn, Quiñ, and Rosabeales. "I hate u, i love u" would go on to surpass 350 million online streams, top the Australian charts, and enter the Billboard Top Ten in late 2016.
