The electronic wiz kid was on fine form at this year’s Sónar Festival. Here’s a short clip of the man in question performing and using our DJ headphones.
There’s really not that much to say about the above video other than this: Nic Jaar is taking music into strange and wonderfully bright-eyed new territory. Lately it has seemed as if every new move the 22-year-old virtuoso makes is a calculated effort to write a new chapter in musical history. And we would argue that anyone who has heard his mighty BBC Essential mix will have a hard time finding arguments against the notion that Nicolas Jaar is one of the most important producers of the new millennium.
The AIAIAI crew were actually fortunate enough to catch this subtly breathtaking performance at this year’s Sonar Festival. It goes without saying that this video doesn’t do the live performance justice… still, it’s definitely the next best thing to being there and until we fine-tune hologram technology, it’ll just have to do, we’re afraid.
