In an oversaturated industry filled with homogeneous music, ego and ideas, Nicolas Jaar weaves together sounds with textures and eras, leading his listeners on a sojourn of sonic exploration and otherworldly experiences. In our humble opinion, Jaar is one of the finest things to happen to electronic music. He is a master and a marvel as a producer and a live musician, but even his earlier DJ sets are just as intense and bone-chilling. They're for sunrise, sunset, pre-party, after-party, dinner party and....any party really. We've dug deep into his treasure trove of music and unearthed ten sets that we feel are amongst some of the most influential of all time.
