Nicolas Jaar 's Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 last year showcased the producer's immaculate taste and meant that his recent slot at Red Bull Music Academy of Boiler Room was not one to be missed. But for those who did miss it first time round, luckily here's an audio and video stream of the entire 46 minute set. Both available embedded below. [via Pitchfork ]
Nicolas Jaar played a 45 minute DJ set at New York's Boiler Room - a night also featuring DJ sets from artists at his own label Clown & Sunset. Put it this way, if you ever have 45 minutes to kill, this is definitely worth your time. It's full of mood swings, taking 10 minutes to settle before you hear the funky lyricism, "Get down low, all the way to floor" - 'Cha Cha Slide' anyone? Gradually, it becomes a big dance track, with tizzy-sparking sythns and a massive energy, quite alike to Jaae's previous releases. [...]

What do we know about Nicolas Jaar? He was born in New York, lived in Chile, studied comparative literature at Brown, he's the label owner of Clown & Sunset and, oh yeah , he won Radio 12s Essential Mix of the Year in 2012. While he's earned recognition in Europe for his masterful album and famed performance from Barcelona's Sonar Festival , the American music scene is slowly catching on. The Red Bull Music Academy hosted Jaar and his Clown & Sunset label two months back for Jaar's Boiler Room debut, and the results were stunning. Jaar's headlining [...]
So, yesterday I came across Nicolas Jaar 's DJ Set @ Boiler Room, and I had to share it with our followers. Besides the brilliant set he did, the good thing about this piece is that we have the chance to see the Chilean wunderkid playing with his "toys." Since the first moment you click play, you'll feel the need to listen the whole set. It's truly impressive to hear the progression of the story, as well as, the interaction and response from the audience. Excellent.
Last month, Nicolas Jaar performed during a Red Bull Music Academy-sponsored show in the Boiler Room. And this weekend, the audio from his set has finally hit the web. If you haven't heard Jaar do his thing live, this is the perfect opportunity to change that. It's also one hell of a way to spend the next 46 minutes of your (probably) lazy Sunday. You can stream the mix below.

Modular looks to assert some international cred with an island festival in the number one party destination of Croatia!

For the 2013 edition of Record Store Day , Nicolas Jaar took to remixing both Grizzly Bear ’s “Sleeping Ute” and Brian Eno ’s “Lux,” which appeared on an exclusive RSD 12”. Of course, the vinyl sold out instantly. In usual fashion, Jaar takes his time in letting his work unfold, keeping your attention with a stream of sparse atmospheric noise. Perhaps in respect for the original, he allows “Lux” to remain ambient throughout while his rework of “Sleeping Ute” gradually evolves into a clean, guitar-driven beat reminiscent of Darkside, Jaar’s collaborative project [...]

Pendant que les Grizzly Bear remixent Phoenix , ils se font remixer eux même pas Nicolas Jaar . Le producteur de Brooklyn reprend avec beaucoup de brio le titre Sleeping Ute et l'infuse d'une deep house magnifiquement calculé. On dit ainsi au revoir à certaines instrumentales qui laissent place à une tout autre structure plus dépouillée et tout aussi efficace. Brillantissime remix de ce génie de la musique.
Nicolas Jaar 's collaborative 12" for Record Store Day sold insanely fast, and rightfully so. The release saw Jaar collaborating with Grizzly Bear and Brian Eno. But it's when you listen to Jaar's remix of Grizzly Bear 's "Sleeping Ute" that you fully understand. The remix is intricate, subtle in its execution and simply memserizing. As always, Jaar delivers.

Image source: Soundcloud Grizzly Bear's "Sleeping Ute" and Brian Eno’s “Lux” was magnificently remixed by Nicolas Jaar for Record Store Day (held 4/20). The four-and-a-half minute song is slowed down and stretched to nearly eight minutes, with a slow build and steady drum and bass. Take a listen:
