Feist – Caught A Long Wind (Nicolas Jaar edit)

Nicolas Jaar‘s essential mix never gets old. It’s been over two years since its release and it still gives me the chills. To me it still completely reeks of Autumn 2012, one of the most intense seasons I’ve yet to endure— Hurricane Sandy and the End of the World all in the span of a couple […]

Darkside – Gone Too Soon

Reclaiming the space. The space in my brain. The space which is integral to my creative endeavors (e.g., everything) and overall experience of the world, the space which is rightfully mine and enables me to gravitate towards the other cool-ass motherf@#kers oscillating on that higher wavelength. Last night I got to catching up with one of my […]

Et Musique Pour Tous Presents Les Auteurs – Sarah Safaie

It was about time I came up with a properly timed conglomeration of sexy-time tunes and somehow sharing my endeavor with a bunch of awesome strangers was the perfect motivation for me to finally get my shit together… not to mention the practical real life applications involved 😉 I’m pleased to present the third installment […]

Cat Power – Cherokee (Nicolas Jaar Mix)

A few weeks ago, I touched on the subject of improbable artist collaborations that play up the strengths of both parties. At the time, it was Sky Ferreira and Unknown Mortal Orchestra teaming up. I’ve been fascinated by these modern super groups. Nominally, the term “super group” denotes a band made up of relatively recognizable members […]

Nicolas Jaar – Our World (John Lennon Tribute mix)

This hauntingly beautiful mix is a tribute to the late Beatle, John Lennon. It’s been 33 years since his death.  “Our World”‘s ethereal charm may render you in a state of ecstasy, nothing short of euphoria and potentially catharsis. Nicolas Jaar’s demonstrates the art of acquiescing elegantly to the solicitations of infinity quite elegantly. So much love for this.

Kasper Bjørke – Heaven (Nicolas Jaar remix)

Buoyantly forlorn is how I’d describe it. Cascading nuances & celestial undercurrents flood my mind; wistfully fragrant with hints of the ultimate, this track embodies a distinct melancholia, echoing undertones of the unknown. Its sincere sublimity rouses me from my daily oblivion. Kissing and running, Kissing and running away Kissing and running, Kissing and running away.” Nothing like a rush of […]

Nicolas Jaar – Boiler Room NYC DJ Set 2013

There’s not much to say here, because there’s a lot to hear. 46 minutes, specifically, of pure blissful listening. When my friend sent this to me, I cleared out 46 minutes just to allow this to happen in my ears, and when I sent it to Hec, he said the same. So, you know it’s a […]

EMPT Presents – Wet Dreams #1 by Barry Poppins

We all want so much man, over achievement and extreme ambition are glorified and admired almost universally these days but have you ever stopped to ask why?… Hustle, hustle, hustle. Grind, grind, grind. Why does everyone got hustle on their mind?” MIA was something else back then, I remember first hearing that hook and questioning […]
