Since being introduced to the music of Nicolas Jaar some months back off the coast of Nicaragua, I’ve been listening to his releases fairly steadily.
Recently, he performed at a Reb Bull Music Academy party in New York City, where he laid down a live performance made up of (what sounds to be) all new material.
The set lasts about 47 minutes and is a bit of a slow starter, but once Mr. Jaar gets some momentum, it’s an absolute stomper.
Also, the entire time I was listening to this set, I couldn’t help but wonder what it would have been like if James Blake had crashed the party…
This set made me homesick, missing the Cape Town music scene.
