Nicolas Jaar - Essential Mix

Nicolas Jaar was born in New York City and moved to Chile at the age of two. Six years later, his family moved back to NYC where he eventually began producing his own music at the young age of 17. He has garnered recognition from many publications, including Pitchfork, The Guardian, Resident Advisor, DJ Mag and many more before releasing his Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1.

Update Required

To play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin.

Fairmont has been on my radar since he released on Traum in the early 2000′s, back then he did softer melodic techno, now he’s a lot more lively but rides that synth pop line that has a somber a side.

Maribou State follows suit of past year trends left behind by Teen Daze and Blackbird Blackbird, still a good formula but its starting to loose its luster.

I was able to catch a portion of Kuhrye-oo set a few nights ago, he can pack in unexpected emotional punch while showing off a different take on his sounds genre.

Ride out the weekend with a 12+ minute jam from Dany Dorado.

If you’re in NY I DJ tomorrow with good friends Lauren Flax and Nick Hook while we open for Nicolas Jaar at Music Hall Of Williamsburg for Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival.

Here it is, my selection of most refreshing music to listen to that came out in 2011. It’s a collection of records that grabbed my ear and made me put my coat on and head to the record store. I’ll have my Top 50 singles of 2011 which include the Atlas Sounds, James Blakes, and all the other goodies from the indie world but this list less about the best of the best but more of what sticks to my bones, i’m sure everyone has their favorites of the year too, feel free to list them below i’d love to see them.

fyi: this list does not include any records I was apart of ala releasing or distributing. i.e. the Tycho album, Ghostly releases, and Moodgadget releases.

Enjoy the playlist, thanks for all the feedback, comments, “likes” etc. over the last year, always a pleasure reading what you all have on your mind.
